Whirlpool is recalling over 2,400 freestanding electric ranges, double ovens and oven microwave combos because of faulty wiring. This wiring can overheat, melt through the insulation and cause a short circuit. It could also pose a shock hazard. This recall applies to Whirlpool and Kitcenaid brands.
But wait, there’s more! Never to be outdone by quality defects, GE has announced that it’s recalling over 28,000 freestanding electric ranges and double wall ovens. The recalled products include General Electric, Hotpoint, Kenmore and Americana brands. They, too, could have faulty wiring which can lead to a short circuit or, better yet, electrocution. Ya gotta love GE.
