CPSC Press Release
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Viking Range, LLC is voluntarily recalling certain Viking Built-In 48-Inch wide Side-by-Side Refrigerator/ Freezers manufactured before March 1, 2005 and certain Built-In 36-Inch wide Bottom Mount Freezer Refrigerators manufactured before April 10, 2006. No 42-Inch wide or Freestanding refrigerators are involved in the recall.
The voluntary recall is being implemented as a result of the potential for screws attaching the pivot plate of the top hinge on the door to shear causing the door to detach from the hinge pivot plate creating a risk of impact injury or fall. If you own a Viking Built-In 48-Inch wide Side-by-Side Refrigerator/ Freezer or a Viking Built-In 36-Inch wide Bottom Mount Refrigerator/Freezer and suspect that your unit is affected by this recall or are unsure if your model is affected, please locate the model and serial number on your refrigerator and enter it into the form below. Once you submit your information, you will be prompted as to whether or not your refrigerator/freezer is affected. If you own an affected product, instructions regarding the next steps will be included.
