Maytag Recalls 13,000 Electric Ranges

Maytag Range RecallNewton, IA (SafetyAlerts) - Maytag Corp. said today it is voluntarily recalling about 13,000 Crosley and Magic Chef electric ranges. Liquid can enter the indicator light and can cause sparking and flaming in the light, presenting a fire hazard to consumers.

Maytag has received fifteen reports of flames in the indicator lights. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled electric ranges are 30-inch free-standing units with the control panel in the front between the door panel and main top. The Crosley brand name ranges have model numbers CE35000AAW or CE35000AAT, and the Magic Chef brand name ranges have model numbers CER1110AAT or CER1110AAH. The brand names can be found on the control panel or the back guard panel and the model number can be located by opening the storage drawer and looking at the tag on the left side.

Appliance stores and distributors nationwide sold the ranges from January 2000 through March 2001 for between $270 and $290.

Consumers should stop using their electric ranges immediately and disconnect power to them. Consumers should call Maytag toll-free (800) 462-9267 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for a free in-home repair or log on to the company's website at www.maytag.com to schedule the repair.
