DC appliances on the same circuit may fail

Dometic Corporation is recalling 5,533 CFX3 Series chest refrigerators (models CFX3 35, CFX3 45, CFX3 55IM, CFX3 75DZ, CFX3 95DZ and CFX3 100).

The protection device on the electrical circuit may fail when the refrigerator is connected to both AC and DC power, allowing the AC/DC power supply to back feed through some or all of the other appliances (such as the air conditioner, water pump, lights, furnace, etc.) that are connected to the 12V DC system.

A voltage overload may result, causing DC appliances on the same circuit to fail.

Dometic has not yet identified a proposed remedy plan.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule for owners or dealers.
