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.
