Viking Range, LLC is extending a recall on Dishwashers from 2012 to include 18,600 models sold in the US and Canada.
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, Viking is voluntarily expanding a previously announced recall of Viking 24″ wide dishwashers to include certain Model 200, Model 325, and Model 450 dishwashers manufactured before April 1, 2011.
An electrical component in the dishwasher can overheat, posing a fire hazard. Viking has received 21 reports of actual fires.
If you own a Viking dishwasher, locate your model number and check it against the chart. The first six numbers in the serial number are the manufacture date in MMDDYY format.
This recall affects dishwashers in all finishes sold at appliance and specialty retail stores in the US and Canada from July 2008 through March 2012 for between $1,225 and $2,000.
If your dishwasher is part of the recall, contact Viking for your free in-home repair at 1-800-241-7239 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
