Default Dometic Voluntarily Expands Refrigerator Recall

Enter your fridge model and serial number at the following link:

http://www.dometicusa.com/recall.php

I think it only affects two door fridges but it's worth checking anyway.

Quote:
Dometic recently expanded its recall on a population of two-door refrigerators. The original recall included some two-door refrigerators manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. The recent expansion of this recall now includes the same two-door refrigerators, manufactured between June 2003 and September 2006.
