Maytag Corp. has voluntarily recalled about 1.6 million refrigerators due to an electrical problem that could create a fire hazard. The problem has led to 16 incidents ranging from smoke damage to major kitchen damage, Maytag said. An electrical failure in the relay component that turns on the refrigerator's compressor can cause overheating and pose a serious fire hazard.

The recall involves some Jenn-Air, Amana, Admiral, Magic Chef, Maytag, Performa by Maytag, and Crosley side-by-side and top freezer refrigerators. They were sold from January 2001 through January 2004 at department and appliance stores and by homebuilders.
