In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is voluntarily recalling 43,000 over the range microwave ovens.
On some units, a capacitor may have been inadvertently put in the incorrect location. As a result, there is some possibility that an installation bolt can contact the terminal on the capacitor of the ventilation motor. In these circumstances, if the power cord is connected to an ungrounded outlet, there could be a risk of shock.
