Liebherr is recalling built-in 24-inch wide single door refrigerators due to faulty hinges that allow the door to become detached.
These 24-inch wide single-door refrigerators come individually or as the refrigerator compartment of side-by-side combinations in models SBS 240, SBS 245, SBS 24I0 and SBS 24I5. The single door model numbers are R 1400, RB 1400, RI 1400 and RBI 1400. You will find the model number on a label located behind the bottom drawer on the left interior side of the single door refrigerator.
The refrigerators, made in Germany, were sold between January 2005 and November 2009.
These refrigerators have a screw locking devices which can malfunction in a way that the door hinge pin can become loose. In the situation where an appliance is equipped with a door stopper device, the door may remain attached to the appliance despite the loosening door hinge pin.
Liebherr says you may continue to use your refrigerator if the hinge has not become loose and the door is functioning properly.
