Danby Recalls 1,700 Ranges Because of Tip-Over Hazard

Child looking into oven
Danby has recalled about 1,700 electric and gas ranges because these appliances have a dangerous tip-over hazard defect. The ranges can tip over if something heavy is placed on the oven door, such as a potful of food. According to Consumer Reports, the tip-overs can occur if the range’s anti-tip bracket is not properly secured or if it is not installed at all. So far, no injuries or incidents have been reported due to the tip-over hazard.

Details of the Tip Hazard Product Recall

A notice on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) website states that recalled ranges include gas and electric models in both freestanding and slide-in configurations. The recall includes five gas and electric range models with specific serial numbers, all carrying the tip-over hazard. You can find a full list on CPSC’s website and alert. If a heavy object is placed on the oven door and the anti-tip bracket is not secured to the wall or the floor, the range is at risk of tipping over. The tip-over hazard could also put consumers at risk of suffering serious burn injuries from hot food or hot liquids contained in cookware spilling over. The recalled ranges were sold nationwide at Home Depot, ABC Appliance, and other appliance stores. They were also sold by business-to-business distributors, including Almo Distributing, Penna Inc., Home Depot Pro, and Tri State Distributors from June 2021 through November 2021 for between $560 and $740. Consumers who have these items are asked to contact Danby to schedule a free in-home service call to inspect the range’s anti-tip bracket and make sure it is securely installed on the floor or wall.

Safety Against Tip-Over Hazard

Under federal law, all ranges are required to be sold with an anti-tip bracket to prevent this kind of tip-over hazard. On average, a child is killed every two weeks due to appliances or furniture tipping over. While more than half of the tip-over fatalities involving children happen in the bedroom due to dressers or other furniture tipping over, range tip-overs are common too. The CPSC states that stove/range tip-over hazard accidents account for most incidents involving household appliances.
