Heartland Recreational Vehicles is recalling more than 400 model year 2013 Bighorn Silverado, 2014 Bighorn, and 2013-2014 Cyclone and Landmark fifth wheel trailers that are equipped with certain Frigidaire KG-series microwaves (models CFMV152CLB and CFMV154CLS).

In the affected vehicles, the microwave may start on its own and begin heating when unattended. If the microwave starts on its own and there are contents inside, a fire could result.

Owners of the recalled Bighorn, Cyclone and Landmark fifth wheel trailers will be notified by Heartland, and dealers will repair the membrane/keypad component on the microwave, free of charge.

For more information on this recall, contact Heartland Recreational Vehicles toll-free at 877-262-8032. Heartland's reference number for this recall is 99-01-17.

Note: Until the microwave in the affected vehicles has been repaired, owners should not store anything in the microwave while it is unattended.
