RecallChek© History

Since 1974, American citizens have been protected from dangerous items in their home. By law, if a manufacturer has designed a dangerous product, they MUST recall all those items and fix them for FREE! Yet, many homes still have potential, and known fire hazards.
The problem in the law is that most often it is up to you, the consumer, to find out whether your appliances have been recalled. There is a database online, but you would have wade through 195 million recalled items to find out if your dishwasher or air conditioner is a potential hazard, and this would take tremendous amount of your time. As a result, today many of these dangerous appliances are still in homes across America.

Won’t I Get a Notice of Recalls on my Appliances?

Most do not, the only way the manufacturer would know you own the product is if you registered the product or purchased an extended warranty. Even more  rare is the occasion that a manufacturer recall on a home appliance is reported by news sources. Most recalls are fire hazards. Manufacturers reporting recalls include Sub-Zero, Goodman, General Electric (GE) and A.O. Smith, just to name a few. All major manufacturers have had a recall at some point – economy and premium brands included. RWS has on file almost 200 million recalls and consumer safety bulletins.

What Does My RecallChek© Include?

Any and all potential recall reports affecting the appliances reported to RWS, including how to verify if your unit is affected, the nature of the recall, where the product was sold, how to remedy the defect, and how to get it done (often, it’s absolutely free). We even give you the number to call and what their hours of business are.

How It Works:

Your home inspector will copy the model numbers of your built in appliances and HVAC System at RecallChek© headquarters. Your model numbers are computer-matched against millions of recalls using our Model Number Algorithm (MNA). RecallChek© issues a report within 48 hours, to both the inspector, and the client.

In the event of a potential recall, we inform to home buyers:

* The nature of the recall
* Where the product was sold
* How to remedy the defect, and
* How to get the item repaired or replaced.
