Samsung Microwave Recall Info
Mt. Arlington, NJ - October 8, 2003 - Samsung Electronics , in cooperation with the United
States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), announced the recall of
nearly 184,000 microwave ovens that were installed in recreational vehicles (RVs) sold in
the US during the past 3 years. Samsung has determined that some of these microwave
ovens may present a safety hazard due to a defective part that may cause them to begin
operation unassisted and result in smoke or fire.
Samsung will repair the ovens free of charge for consumers. In the meantime, consumers
who own RVs with the affected ovens should unplug the microwaves - or, if that is not
possible, leave the microwave door ajar, which will prevent the oven from operating. As a
general safety precaution, consumers should never store items in microwave ovens or leave
items in the ovens after use.
Samsung is currently working with more than 150 RV manufacturers nationwide to arrange
to have the microwave ovens repaired for consumers free of charge. Repairs will be handled
by Registered Service Centers. Customers may remove the Oven and carry it into an
Authorized Service Center, or, tow their RV to the Service Center for onsite service.
The new models included in the recall are: MR1031WB, MR1032BB, MR1033SB,
MR1351WB, MR1352BB. These microwave ovens were built by Samsung between May
2002 and July 2003 and installed in RVs sold during that time frame.
Models of microwave oven affected by the earlier recall notice include: MR5491G,
MR5491G01, MR5492W, MR5494W01, MR5493G, MR5493G01, MR5494W, MR7491G,
MR7491G01, MR7492W, MR7492W01, MR7493G, MR7493G01, MR6698WB, MR6699GB,
and MR6699SB. Consumers can locate the model number and manufacture date of their
oven on the inside of the microwave oven door.
Microwave oven models MR1031UWC, MR1031CWC, MR1032UBC, MR1032CBC as well as
MR1351WB manufactured after May 2003 and MR1352WB manufactured after August 2003
are not included in this recall. No other Samsung microwave ovens are involved in this recall.
