What is the problem?

If the dryer is improperly installed, the dryer's internal gas fitting can loosen, posing a risk of gas leaking into the house. Any gas leak that is not detected can cause asphyxiation, a fire or an explosion. Also, one or both of the caps on the internal exhaust duct can become dislodged, which can cause lint to build up and be carried through the gas burner. This poses a risk of fire.

Instance(s) of fires, property damage have been reported.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The recall involves Miele gas dryers, model T 9820. The dryers are residential super-large capacity units that are white-colored. The serial number can be located on the rim of the door opening, and is written as "Nr:xx/" followed by an 8-digit number in the range from 66461685 to 89921848.

These items were sold new+ at Miele distributors nationwide between March 2007 and December 2007 for about $1,300.
