More than 13,000 Frigidaire Gas Laundry Centers, sold at Home Depot and Lowes nationwide, have been recalled due to the felt seal on the dryer drum possibly folded inward which can lead to lint accumulation, creating a fire hazard.
Electrolux Group has received 23 reports of fire and one report of a smoke inhalation injury.
This recall involves all Frigidaire Gas Laundry Centers with model numbers FFLG4033QW and FFLG4033QT. The Laundry Centers were sold in white and titanium colors and have “FRIGIDAIRE” written below the dryer door. The serial number is located on a white sticker inside the dryer door, and the following serial numbers are included in this recall:
|Model Numbers||Serial Numbers|
|FFLG4033QWX||4E44114739 through 4E81603034|
