2023 Dehumidifier Recall Alert: Everything You Need to Know

2023 Dehumidifier Recalls

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has just announced a recall of several dehumidifier models from different brands, due to a fire risk.

The dehumidifiers were first recalled in 2013, and later expanded in 2014 and 2016 to include more models. The most recent recall alert, issued on August 16, 2023, was spurred by several cases of fire-related deaths caused by the defective dehumidifiers in 2022.

Here is the complete list of dehumidifiers covered in the latest recall alert.

The recalled dehumidifiers were sold in the US and Canada, from Amazon, Home Depot, Kmart, Lowe’s, Menards, Mills Fleet Farm, Sam’s Club, Sears, Walmart and other stores.

Note that this recall is separate from another recall alert of Gree dehumidifiers that cover Kenmore, GE, SoleusAir, Seabreeze, and Norpole brands.

How to Determine if Your Dehumidifier is Included

Look at the back of your dehumidifier and search for the manufacturer’s label or sticker. The label will provide:

  • The brand or name of the manufacturer
  • The model number
  • The serial number

The brand and model will let you know if your specific dehumidifier model is part of the recall alert. 

If it is, provide the serial number to the manufacturer or CPSC to determine when it was manufactured (for brands where the recall only covers specific manufacturing dates).

What Happens if my Dehumidifier is Part of the Recall?

1. Immediately cease using the unit and unplug it from the wall.

2. Contact the manufacturer’s information listed in the back label.

3. You may also enter the dehumidifier’s details in the Gree dehumidifier recall page, or call the recall hotline at 1-866-853-2802.

4. Once you submit the details, the manufacturer will reach out to you with a return kit.

5. After the manufacturer receives the returned label, they will issue a refund. 

How to Return the Recalled Dehumidifier

According to the CPSC, the dehumidifier itself does not need to be returned. The only things that need to be returned are:

  • The name plate sticker
  • Cut-off power cord and plug 
  • The warning sticker from the power cord

Do not cut off the power cord until you receive the return kit. 

The dehumidifier itself will need to be disposed of by your local waste removal service. It should not be returned to the store where you purchased it.

Refund Information

The refund will be released once the company receives the return kit containing the name plate sticker, the cut-off power cord and plug, and the warning sticker from the power cord. 

According to the recall page, it can take between 2 to 6 weeks for the refund to be released after the company receives the return kit.

What are the Risks of Using a Recalled Dehumidifier?

According to the CPSC, there have been over 2,000 reported cases of overheating among the recalled dehumidifiers. These resulted in 450 home fire incidents, causing over $19 million in property damage.

In addition, it may have caused four fatalities between 2016 and 2022. We’ve also published a guide to the common causes of dehumidifier issues, to ensure that your dehumidifier is safe to use.
