Exclamation Dometic Fridge RECALL

Saw this in the new March issue of Equus Magazine and thought maybe someone here would need to know. They're voluntarily recalling some Dometic refrigerators.

The recall affects Dometic 2 door refrigertors manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. It says a serious problem resulting in a fire may occur in an exceptionally small fraction of Dometic 2 door refrigertaors, but to address that potential risk, please contact them immediately for more information.

So if you think you have one of these recalled Dometic refrigerators, you should call 1-888-446-5157. Additionally they provide a web address of:
www.DometicUSA.com

Hope this post helps someone.

I wonder if this is a new recall or is the one that was issued last year? The site really doesn't give you much info other than to input your model, serial number and a brief statement. I wish they would date these things.

I don't know anything about old recalls I just know this one was just in my new issue of Equus and I've not seen it before. At the bottom of the recall ad there's small numbers saying Recall 06E-076

Does that help?

I think this is probably the recall that was issued early last year. Dometic would have probably had two listed if this was something new.

Dometic is continuing to run ads in major publications so that all owners of these potentially recalled refrigerators has notice. A recall lasts FOREVER.

I was wondering the same thing, Jack. Responded to it last year, got the repair and hadn't seen another recall notice until recently...
