Update: Dehumidifier Fires Prompt Warning in Oregon
October 6, 2018 – A post on Oregon’s Elk River Fire Department Facebook page is warning consumers about an ongoing dehumidifier recall, urging everyone to check units to see if theirs is being recalled. The post was prompted by at least 2 separate dehumidifier fires that recently occurred in homes around Elk River, officials said.
What’s the Problem?
September 9, 2017 – Terms of the settlement in the lawsuit brought by Rebecca A. Wilson against Electrolux Home Products Inc. were not disclosed, according to PennLive. Wilson’s attorney said the proceeds have not been received, but are expected to come from China by November 1.
According to the lawsuit, there was a house fire at Wilson’s residence on June 22, 2014, which was caused by a recalled dehumidifier. The complaint was seeking damages in excess of $500,000.
Electrolux claims that its dehumidifiers are not defective, and that even if they were, another company made them so it’s not their fault. The Frigidaire brand dehumidifier named in the suit was manufactured by China-based Gree Electric Appliances Inc.
