GE Appliances recalls free-standing electric and gas ranges to repair them

GE Appliances has recalled some free-standing and slide-in electric and gas ranges so that they can be inspected and repaired if necessary.

According to an announcement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the ranges can tip over if a heavy object is placed on the oven door and the anti-tip bracket is not secured.

About 132,000 of the ranges were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Best Buy and other home improvement and home appliance stores nationwide and online from May 2021 through July 2021 for between $580 and $4,600, depending on the model.

The recall involves 30-inch, 24-inch and 20-inch free-standing and slide-in ranges with these brand names – GE, GE Profile, Café, Haier, Hotpoint, Crosley and Conservator.

Included in the recall are ranges that have a serial number that starts with either “HS” or “LS” and ends with “P.” You can see all the model numbers here.

People who own the ranges should contact GE Appliances to determine if their unit is part of the recall and to schedule a free in-home service call to inspect the range’s anti-tip bracket and ensure it is securely installed in the floor or wall.

“Consumers can continue to use the recalled ranges but are cautioned not to place any objects on the open oven door until the range’s anti-tip bracket has been inspected and repaired, if necessary. Consumers should not return the recalled ranges to the place of purchase, as retailers are not prepared to take the units back. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.”
