How Do You Find Out If Your Dehumidifier Has Been Recalled?

Find out if your brand and model of dehumidifier is subject to a recall by checking on consumer reporting and protection sites such as ConsmerAffairs.com and CPSC.gov. Additionally, some manufacturers establish special websites that allow you to enter a serial number for a dehumidifier to check its recall status.

ConsumerAffairs.com offers a wealth of information and tools regarding the rights of consumers regarding various product types, including home electronics and goods such as dehumidifiers. The site contains a section dedicated to listing information about product recalls, with the option to search through recalls from previous years. Although the site doesn't have a search tool, it offers a list of its publications on recall topics.

CPSC.gov contains a search tool to locate information about specific product recalls, with options to enter a keyword such as a manufacturer name as well as a date range. Results link to other articles on the site regarding official product recalls.

Another method to determine if a specific dehumidifier is under recall is to visit the manufacturer's website and locate its Recalls section, which may be on a separate site completely. Such websites typically feature a description of the most recent product recalls, such as model names or series lines, as well as a tool for checking the status of a product. Such tools often require a serial number or product number to check the status.
