That's pretty amazing - just from this forum. I posted it on another forum where I'm a member (non-firearms related) and a couple of people there had ones on the recall list, too.

And these are just the people who posted. How many people read Arfcom, but don't have an account or don't post?

Add me to the list, we have two - a 50 pint SoleusAir in the basement shop area (where I reload...) and a 70 pint unit in the crawlspace equipment area underneath the great room. Both on the list. They were the only locally available models that work at temps down to the 40's w/out freezing up.

Thanks for the heads up!

That makes 30 here who could have had a fire.

Oh snap !

I had a Frigidaire humidifier fail in 2010 and I replaced it with a new model that same year. It just stopped working and did smell burnt. I used it for target practice and I bet it was one of the recalled ones.

Lucky it didn't burn my house down!
Link Posted: 10/19/2013 6:44:07 PM EST
According to Gree's recall website, they are going to want me to cut off and return the cord and label sticker from the unit before they will issue a refund.

I'm going to call their hotline number tomorrow or Monday to ask a couple of questions...

How are they going to know how much to refund me?

What about the extended product warranty that I purchased with the unit?

What about the inconvenience of being without my dehumidifier and the time and trouble of having go buy another one?

This sucks!

Would you prefer a house fire, losing everything, such as happened to the guy who posted about this on IL Carry in the first place?

How about if it happened in the middle of the night and your wife/girlfriend and kids were injured or killed?

Mine is on the list as well. Solus air. I called today and I was told
That i will be getting a "return kit" in the mail in 5-10 days then after I return the parts they want I'll
Get a refund check in the mail. So in what I expect to be a month by the time everythings
Done I get to buy a new dehumidifier, and dispose of the whats left of the old one.

Link Posted: 10/19/2013 9:27:04 PM EST
Mine was on the list. I read about the recall a couple of weeks ago.

I have already received the envelope and have retuned it. Now I am just waiting on my $239 check.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 1:52:34 AM EST
Thanks to the OP for bringing this to our attention. My dehumidifier wasn't part of the recall you posted, but IS listed on a different recall due to danger of electrical shock. W.C Wood 40-pint Dehumidifier Recall

The company has closed its doors, so there's no recourse. No check for me, dammit.

No no, that's not what I mean at all. I'm sorry if it came across that way. My deepest sympathies to those that have been affected by fires caused by these things. Having lost a family home to fire, I know what it's like to lose part of yourself.

No, I'm worried about getting shafted by Gree. I know my luck. I'm figuring that I'll get a $50 "refund" for my $300+ investment.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 2:31:23 AM EST
Have 2 of those units, one is in the date range. Frack...

Thank you for the heads up. Unplugged that unit, and will call Monday.
Link Posted: 10/20/2013 3:23:53 AM EST
Thanks for the heads up OP. I as well have one that was running around the clock down in my basement that is on the recall list. According to the glee recall website FAQ it will be 2-6weeks from the time they receive your package before you see your reimbursement check. Good thing its getting colder out and I don't really need it at the moment.

Imagine my surprise made in China.

They are trying to kill us. Whether by poison, by stuff that doesn't work when it supposed to or by fire. They figure they'll get us at some point.

This is the second recall you guys have alerted me to. The first was travel trailer refer. This dehumidifier had been on the shelf the past few years new and in the box.
I am not sure i will or would ever use it. So i am getting my money back for it 339 bucks i believe. Thanks for the alert.

http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=42261

On september 19, 2013 my family suffered a large house fire. I lost 6 firearms and all tools/cleaning supplies/accessories. Insurance will replace most of what was lost. The cause of this fire was a Dehumidifier that had unknown to me been recalled the previous week. I am sure many of you are like me and run dehumidifiers in basements or near firearms collections. Please check them. The company that made mine was sold at a local home supply store. Due to pending litigation I wont name the store but will post a link to the recall notice. Please check it out and tell everyone you know. Our fire will end up costing between $400,000-500,000. We lost everything. The best example of everything I can give is the night of the fire I had to borrow shoes from the neighbor to get to the hotel. My family is ok and thats really what counts.

I dont want anything from anyone just to make fellow firearm owners aware of something that is an issue. I am sure there are many of us that have these near our collections and even if not please still check them. Thank you for reading this. I hope it saves someone some heartache.

Mobrules sent me 8 pics to post, so here they are. His M1A rusted after being hit with water from the fire being put out, the dehumidifier after the fire, and his basement after fire. And in the very last pics, you will see Christmas decorations (red and green) on the basement floor. Mobrules told me it took about five minutes for the fire to do that damage. The unit had only been plugged in for one hour.

The problem is that just because it is made in China is not the issue. It is the importer, when they go the Chinese mfgr, they ask "build me this to these specs," at the LOWEST possible cost, and of course corners have be cut somewhere, someplace. And then the importer takes the word of the mfgr that it does this appliance does the job.and is safe, but they never verify because that would add to the cost. The importer should shoulder much of the blame.
