Nearly half of million LG portable air conditioners are being recalled due to fire hazard

Air Conditioner LG

LG is recalling about 466,000 portable air conditioners in the United States and about 36,000 in Canada.

The portable air conditioners can overheat, posing a risk of fire.

The company has received four reports of fires that have caused $380,000 in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves three models of 7,000 and 8,000 BTU LG portable air conditioners including model numbers LP0711WNR, LP0813WNR, and LP0814WNR

The air conditioners are tan/white with the LG logo on the front. They are about 30-inches tall, 12-inches wide, and 14-inches deep and weigh 50 pounds. The model number is located on the air conditioner’s left side.

The air conditioners were sold at Home Depot and other stores nationwide from February 2011 through August 2016 for between $250 and $280.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled portable air conditioners and contact LG to schedule a free repair at an authorized service center, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise.

For more information, call LG at 855-791-0808 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. CT on Saturday or visit www.lgportableacrecall.com.
