Recalled KitchenAid products include food processors in 2000, toasters and coffeemakers in 2005, microwave-hood combinations sold nationwide in 2001 and the Free Standing Range KERA2. Consumers must immediately stop using the products. Substantial property damage has occurred with the microwave-hood units.
Homebuilders and retail stores nationwide sold the Free Standing Range KERA2 from April 2004 through
July 2004 for $850 to $1230. The ovens have defective wiring that shorts out circuits, creating a shock hazard to the user. Consumers must unplug the appliances and shut them off at the circuit breaker or fuse. Customers can contact KitchenAid for free repair. The company replaces smaller items.
