The Consumer Product Safety Commission has launched a serious investigation into several fires allegedly started by faulty KitchenAid microwaves.
The model in question is the over-the-range KitchenAid KHMS155LSS.
Officials says fires involving the microwave were reported in Washington state and Florida. In some cases, fires started when the microwave was not in use. Another microwave fire was reportedly caused by electrical arcing.
Whirlpool, which owns KitchenAid, says it has not been able to verify a single microwave fire report.
