January 12, 2023 — LG has recalled about 52,000 86-inch Smart TVs and stands due to a serious tip-over hazard.
The recall was announced after LG received 22 reports of TV stand instability, resulting in 12 reports of tip-overs.
No injuries were reported, but LG said the recalled TVs weigh about 100 pounds. If they tip over, they can cause life-threatening impact injuries, entrapment, or even death, especially for young children.
This recall involves four LG Electronics 86-inch smart TV models with model numbers 86UQ8000AUB, 86UQ7070ZUD, 86UQ7590PUD, and 86NANO75UQA.
The serial number begins with 202RM, 203RM, 204RM, 205RM, 206RM, 207RM, or 208RM and is located at the bottom right of the back of the TV, along with the model number.
They were sold from March 2022 to September 2022 for $1,100 to $1,900 at Walmart, Best Buy, Costco and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Bestbuy.com and Costco.com.
The tip-over hazard only applies to consumers who are using the TV stand with legs — not consumers who have wall-mounted their TVs.
LG is asking consumers to immediately detach the TV’s supporting stand legs and put the TV in a safe location away from children.
LG will provide instructions on how to inspect the unit and get replacement screws and stand parts, including help from a technician for a free repair.
