CSA International and Maytag Corporation Announce a Corrective Action Program To Repair Amana Gas Ranges

October 16, 2001

In cooperation with CSA International, Maytag Corp., of Newton, Iowa, is announcing a corrective action program to repair approximately 519 Amana Big Oven gas ranges. Maytag acquired Amana Appliances on July 31, 2001.

During the broil and self-clean modes, the range can emit high levels of carbon monoxide (CO), presenting the potential for CO poisoning to consumers. Additionally, during the broil and self-clean modes, the temperature of the storage drawer can become extremely high, presenting a risk of burn injuries. The ranges are safe when operating normally for baking and cooking on the surface burners only.

Maytag has received one report of the temperature on the storage drawer becoming extremely high. No injuries have been reported.

The Amana Big Oven 30” self clean gas ranges have the following model and serial numbers:

Model No. Serial No.
ACF3315A (T) (K) 0005 Thru 0103 (First 4 digits of the 10 digit number)
ACF3335A (W) (C) (B) (S) 0005 Thru 0107 (First 4 digits of the 10 digit number)
ACF3375A (W) (C) (B) (S) 0006 Thru 0107 (First 4 digits of the 10 digit number)

The model and serial numbers can be located by opening the storage drawer and looking at the tag on either the left or right side. The brand name “Amana” appears on the front of the gas range.

Consumers should stop using the self-clean and broil functions of the ranges immediately and contact Amana toll-free at (800) 266-3535 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for an in-home inspection and free repair. Consumers can also log on to the company website at www.amana.com for more information.
