I have a Soleus dehumidifier that started overheating badly as if it was going to catch on fire. We unplugged it before anything happened, and it smelled like burned electronics. The unit was extremely hot to the touch.

Our model number is not on the recall list, but it should be:

Comment from Gree Electric Appliances, Inc. of Zhuhai 11/15/2013
Gree Electric Appliances, Inc. of Zhuhai (“Gree”) takes all reports of dehumidifier overheating and/or fire very seriously. However, Gree has seen no evidence to support a claim that any Soleus Air dehumidifier manufactured by Gree in 2013 poses a fire hazard. If the consumer’s dehumidifier is not functioning properly in the first year of use, the consumer may contact the Soleus Air warranty hotline at (888) 876-5387.
