ALERT: Electrolux ICON and Kenmore PRO Gas Ranges Recalled Due to Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C.—If you purchased an Electrolux ICON or Kenmore 30” PRO Gas Range between August 2008 and October 2009, you may need to find somewhere else to cook your turkey—some of those models are being recalled due to carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.

The issue is an incorrect part that allows more fuel to pass to the range’s oven than can be burned efficiently, which causes incomplete combustion and the release of carbon monoxide. About 900 of the ranges were sold for $2,500 to $3,500, the companies said.

Electrolux has received four reports of incidents involving carbon monoxide being released from the recalled gas range. No injuries have been reported.

The following Electrolux ICON and Kenmore PRO 30” gas range model and serial numbers are included in this recall. Not all serial numbers within these ranges are included in the recall.
  • Electrolux ICON gas range model E30GF74HPS
  • Kenmore PRO 30” gas range models 790.76913800 and 790.76913801

  • Serial number range: NF83000000 – NF93633000
To find the serial number look on the back of the Electrolux ICON range or near the base of the Kenmore PRO range, just below the bottom right portion of the oven door and on the back of the range.
