Electrolux voluntarily recalls certain icemakers due to possible safety issue

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – June 2, 2022 – Electrolux today requested that owners of certain Frigidaire side-by-side and top freezer refrigerators as well as certain Frigidaire Professional and Electrolux multi-door refrigerators contact the company to schedule a free in-home installation of a new icemaker. Consumers can verify if their icemaker is affected by checking www.IceMakerRecall.com.

The recall reason is an issue with the icemaker’s level detector arm, which under certain circumstances, can potentially break and fall into the ice bucket, posing a choking hazard.

“Consumer safety is our top priority, and we take this matter very seriously,” says Electrolux North America Product Safety Director Chad Strickland. “We have decided to voluntarily recall these affected icemakers and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.”

Consumer Actions

  1. Check IceMakerRecall.com to see if both your model and serial number are on the affected refrigerator list. Both numbers can be found on a label inside the refrigerator.
  2. If it is on the affected list, it is recommended that you empty your ice bucket and stop using the icemaker until it is replaced.
  3. If it is on the affected list, consumers can schedule a free in-home installation of a new icemaker at IceMakerRecall.com.

Please note: Products with other serial numbers within the Frigidaire, Frigidaire Professional and Electrolux lines are not affected.

Electrolux conducted this recall voluntarily under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the remedy to protect consumers.
