Coffee Maker Recalls – What Should You Do?

The Black & Decker coffee brewer recall of 2009 left a lot of people bewildered and had no idea on what to do. Here are a few simple steps that you can do to ensure that you won’t do any unnecessary things during a coffee maker recall.

1. After purchasing a coffee maker, always keep the receipt and warranty cards in a safe place. These documents contain valuable information about your coffee maker, such as model number, batch number, country of origin, etc. When a coffee maker recall does happen, you can easily check if you are affected.

3. When you hear about a recall about the brand of your coffee maker, get all the relevant information about it. See if your coffee maker is affected. If in doubt, call the help line of the brand of your coffee maker.

4. If you do not know the contact information of the brand of your coffee maker, a simple Google search will yield the information that you are looking for.

Visiting the official website of the brand of your coffee maker will give you the necessary contact information (e-mail and phone number). Once you have contacted the brand of your coffee maker, ask for instructions on what to do.

5. Once you learn that your coffee maker is affected, stop using it immediately, even if you do not experience any issues and problems with it.

Then follow the instructions provided by the brand of your coffee maker on how to submit or send your unit back for refurbishment or replacement.

These simple steps will help you go through a coffee maker recall experience without much fuss. However, always remember to exercise your right as a paying customer.

Once you encounter a minor or major issue with your coffee maker, do not hesitate to contact the brand of your coffee maker and let them know about it as soon as possible.
