On August 23, 2006, I was residing at [REDACTED] Apartments. General Electric Appliances including Microwave Oven Combo, were standard amenities in the apartment units. On the above date, I experienced a fire in the Microwave Oven in my unit. The District of Columbia Fire Department were contacted and report no. # [REDACTED] was generated by [REDACTED] (001858). After speaking with several residence at [REDACTED], I learned others had experienced smaller fires (not requiring the assistance of the DC Fire Dept.) in the Microwave Ovens in their units, as well as visible sparks during use. Further, the Maitenance Manager of [REDACTED], (2006) informed residence that the GE Microwave Ovens, were determined to be a Fire-Hazard and in 2007, one year Iater, I uncovered a General Electric Microwave Oven Combo, Product Safety Recall #08-110 as a fire-hazard; release date December 5, 2007. The Microwave Oven Combo on factory recall is remarkebly similar in appearance and style, to the Microwave Oven Combo in the units at [REDACTED], and I strongly suspect they are one in the same. In my attempt to confirm the model number with [REDACTED] Apartments, (AKA) [ REDACTED] Communities headquartered in Virginia, I have not received any cooperation. However, I did learn that in 2009, [REDACTED] Apartments underwent a Maintenance Transition, removing all General Electric Microwave Ovens from the apartment units and replacing them with [REDACTED] Products. Why?
I am asking CPSC to please investigate, and determine the model number of the GE Microwave Combo in the apartment units at [REDACTED] Apartments in 2006. The senior procurement person for [REDACTED] Communities, AKA [REDACTED] in Virginia is [REDACTED].
