On July 26, 2016, the manufacturer Electrolux issued a recall with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for approximately 1,000 electric wall ovens branded Kenmore or Frigidaire. The recall covers both single and double ovens. The brand name on these ovens is printed below the oven window. The ovens were originally sold in March and April 2016. The Frigidaire models retailed in Illinois and the Kenmore models were sold at Sears stores nationwide.
The model and serial numbers on these ovens can be found inside the oven on the left side. Specific information about which serial numbers and models are covered by the recall and detailed information about the recall itself can be found at this CPSC link.
