WOW! Thanks for posting that Marcel.

And another tonight, guess where it is made.

This recall made in USA. Might be seen during an Inspection.

Hazard: The system can burst at or near the vessel weld seam releasing stored pressure. This pressure can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank, posing impact or laceration hazards to consumers and property damage.

Thanks for posting I think.

It was sold for 11 years and a total of nearly 2.5 million.

I seldom look in the toilet tank unless it fails to flush.

I have no plans to change that procedure.

If fact it may be time to include a disclaimer in my report and refer my client to the CSPC site.

There simply are far too many things that can go bump.

Inspectors are not magicians and fortune tellers.

Observe
report
get paid
go home
sleep well

It sounds like Nathan has a service that many benefit from. Do all members that use his service, described here, alert the client that they make comissions from the client’s use of his service? Just curious how users are advertising it. Thanks.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firms named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately until a repair is completed on affected dryers. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
**Name of Product: **LG Electronics and Kenmore Elite® Gas Dryers
**Units: **About 21,000
**Manufacturer: **LG Electronics, Inc., of South Korea
**Hazard: **The gas valve in the recalled dryers can fail to shut off properly, continuing to heat the dryer and its contents after the drying cycle is complete. High temperatures inside and on the exterior surface of the dryers can scorch the drum, as well as burn or damage the dryer contents, posing a risk of burn, fire and smoke inhalation.
**Incidents/Injuries: **LG Electronics and Sears have received 141 consumer complaints about dryers continuing to heat after the drying cycle is complete. There were three reports of minor burns to hands or arms. Burnt or scorched clothing was reported in more than 50 incidents.
**Description: **LG Electronics and Sears’ Kenmore Elite brand gas dryers come in the following colors: LG models in white; Kenmore Elite® in red, white and ginger (gold). Model and serial numbers can be found on a label fixed to the front of the dryer above the opened door, which can be viewed only when the dryer door is open. To confirm if your dryer is part of this recall, identify both model and serial numbers, since not all dryers with the listed models are recalled.

This one here could be in your house.
