Goshen-based Keystone RV is recalling 1,957 fifth-wheel travel trailers because their microwave ovens might self-start, posing a fire risk if contents are left inside the ovens, federal officials announced Thursday, April 17.
The voluntary recall follows a similar one issued March 27 by Nappanee-based Newmar Corp., which affected 657 vehicles made from February to mid-November of last year.
Both recalls involve defective microwaves made by Martinez, Ga.-based Frigidaire.
The Keystone recall affects its 2014 Alpine, Big Sky, Dutchmen Infinity, Dutchmen Voltage and Fuzion models, and 2013-14 Montana units. Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will repair the membrane/keypad component free of charge, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.
Owners may call Keystone customer service at 866-425-4369 or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.
Keystone RV officials did not immediately return an email or voicemail.
