If you see blue wall anchors, your hood may pull away from the wall, posing a risk for injury. Here’s where to look.
Hoods with push button, rocker switch or electronic controls are NOT made by Air King and are NOT part of this recall.
Immediately STOP using and inspect your range hood if you suspect it is part of the recall and follow the instructions at www.airkinglimited.com/recall. Air King will provide customers with recalled units free replacement wall anchors and repairs by a qualified technician. You can also contact the company’s customer service department by telephone toll-free at 1-877-304-3785.
