Haier America has issued a recall for Top-Mount Refrigerators due to an electrical component in the refrigerator that can short circuit, posing a fire hazard.
This recall involves the Haier models HA10TG31 with 10.1 cubic foot capacity. They measure about five feet high and two feet wide. The Haier logo is affixed on the refrigerator door. Only the following models and serial numbers are included in this recall (see effected model numbers). Model and serial numbers can be found on the rating plate on the back of the refrigerator’s rear panel.
About 137,000unites were sold at Lowes stores nationwide and independent retailers from September 2014 through September 2018 for between $400 and $500. Haier America has received three reports of smoke, fire and associated property damage. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should unplug and immediately stop using the recalled refrigerators and visit Haier America’s website to schedule a free in-home repair or to receive a refund in the form of a $150 rebate toward the purchase of a qualified new Haier brand refrigerator.
