Electrolux has recalled its Frigidaire and Electrolux side-by-side, top freezer, and multi-door refrigerators due to a possible choking hazard from the ice makers.

According to the recall notice, the refrigerators’ ice level detector arm in the ice maker may break into pieces, which could cause it to fall into the ice bucket, presenting a choking hazard.

The recall affects about 367,500 Frigidaire and Electrolux refrigerators in the U.S. and about 7,180 units sold in Canada.

The recall impacts 13 different models of the Frigidaire refrigerators and one Electrolux model. All of the refrigerators have an ice maker and come in stainless steel, white, and black coloring.

Each model has the brand name, model, and serial number printed on the label, which is located on the right panel of the interior of the refrigerator compartment.

The units range in size from 23 to 36 inches wide and were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, and appliance stores nationwide as well as online at Frigidaire.com from April 2020 to March 2022. The refrigerators ranged in cost from $1,200 to $4,300.

A complete list of model numbers and serial numbers can be viewed here.

Electrolux is urging all affected consumers to immediately stop using the recalled refrigerators’ ice makers. They should empty the ice bucket and contact Electrolux to schedule a technician to replace the ice maker with one that has a polypropylene ice level detector at no charge.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Electrolux at 1-833-840-5926, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, by email at IceMakerRecall@electrolux.com, online at www.icemakerrecall.com, or at www.electrolux.com or www.frigidaire.com by clicking on “Recall” at the bottom corner of each page for more information.

Electrolux said it has received 185 reports of the ice level detectors breaking, with one report of gum lacerations in a consumer.
