Recall Of Coffeemakers Announced

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Feb. 3) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) today announced the recall of approximately 14,500 Nobility-brand 10-cup Automatic Coffeemakers, Model # 151, because they pose a potential fire hazard.

According to the Commission staff, a defect in the internal construction may cause corrosion of the metal bracket which holds the thermostat against the heating element. When this happens, the thermostat will fall away from the heating element and the unit will remain in a constant "On" position, generating unnecessary heat until it ignites the plastic case.

Consumers who own a Nobility coffeemaker, Model #151, should stop use immediately and return the unit to the store where purchased for a full refund. All coffeemakers involved in the recall have the name "NOBILITY" written across the front of the upper section of the unit where the water is added. Etched into the metal plate at the base of each coffeemaker are the words: UL LISTED 4293, MADE IN SINGAPORE, DO NOT IMMERSE IN WATER, and E57635 MODEL 232. (This model number is not to be confused with Model #151 which is printed only on the box in which the coffeemaker is packaged). The units have been sold nationwide under the Nobility name since approximately June 1976, and retailed for about $16.50.

These same coffeemakers have been imported and distributed by other as yet unidentified firms under different brand names. All units, however, bear the same inscriptions on the base plate. Consumers who have coffeemakers that are not Nobility but otherwise match the above description should discontinue use and notify the Commission of the brand name of the unit and the place of purchase by calling the Commission's toll-free hotline at 800/638-2772.
