Miele Recalls Gas Dryers Due to Risk of Gas Leak or Fire

RELEASE DATE May 29 2008
MANUFACTURER Miele
BRANDS Miele
UNITS About 3,100
HAZARD If the dryer is improperly installed, the dryer's internal gas fitting can loosen, posing a risk of gas leaking into the house. Any gas leak that is not detected can cause asphyxiation, a fire or an explosion. Also, one or both of the caps on the internal exhaust duct can become dislodged, which can cause lint to build up and be carried through the gas burner. This poses a risk of fire.
DESCRIPTION The dryers are residential super-large capacity units that are white-colored.
INCIDENTS/INJURIES There have been eleven reports of consumers smelling gas after the gas dryer installation. One report of a fire causing property damage was reported. No injuries have been reported.
SOLD AT Miele distributors nationwide.
SOLD DATES March 2007 to December 2007
MANUFACTURED IN Czech Republic
REMEDY Consumers should stop using the recalled dryer immediately and turn off the gas supply to the unit. Consumers who have not had their dryer inspected should contact a Miele authorized service provider for a free inspection and repair.
