EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:      This weekly newsletter covers:

  1. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Maytag Corp. Announce Recall to Repair Amana Gas Ranges


(1) CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION (CPSC) AND MAYTAG CORP. ANNOUNCE RECALL TO REPAIR AMANA GAS RANGES

Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Maytag Corp., of Newton, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling to repair about 50,000 Amana Big Oven gas ranges. During the broil and self-clean modes, the range can emit high levels of carbon monoxide (CO), presenting the potential for CO poisoning to consumers. Additionally, during the broil and self-clean modes, the temperature of the storage drawer can become extremely high, presenting the risk of burn injuries to consumers.

 

The 30" self clean gas ranges have the following model and serial numbers:

 

Model #
Serial #
ACF3315A (T) (K)
Serial Nos. 0005 thru 0103 (First 4 digits of the 10 digits)
ACF3335A (W) (C) (B) (S)
Serial Nos. 0005 thru 0107 (First 4 digits of the 10 digits)
ACF3375A (W) (C) (B) (S)
Serial Nos. 0006 thru 0107 (First 4 digits of the 10 digits)

The model and serial numbers can be located by opening the storage drawer and looking at the tag on either the left or the right side. The brand name "Amana" appears on the front of the gas range.

Consumers should call Amana toll-free at (800) 266-3535 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday for an in-home inspection and free repair. Consumers can also log on to the company's website at www.amana.com.
