Appliance manufacturer Electrolux is recalling approximately 3,000 Sears Kenmore 24-inch freestanding electric ranges after learning that the cook top might not attach properly to the heating element, potentially causing injurious or even fatal electric shock accidents, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on February 24.
The affected products have black or white cook tops with stainless steel accents, and were sold at Kmart and Sears stores nationwide between April and October 2014. The affected model numbers are 790.90152 and 790.90153, with serial numbers NF408 to NF424, and NF408 to NF427, respectively.
