  2. If you registered with Haier on their site, or using the toll free number, you should receive a replacement unit from them. I spoke with a Haier representative who states that Haier is shipping new toasters out directly.

    I would like to know the status of my replacement toaster/oven broiler.

    This recall may be a scam and should be investigated. I sent the necessary appliance cord and information to the Haier company on 6/4/09. Since the replacment oven did not arrive in 4 weeks, I called the company and was told that it would be sent the following week. It never arrived, and I called 4 more times during the next three months. Each time, I was told about delays in manufacture and delays in shipping. My final call was on 9/17/09, and the customer service representative still advised me that there was a delay in manufacture, and that he could not give me any information about when I would receive the replacement oven.

  5. I have registered for recall of RTO1400SS since March 2011 and still waiting for the letter for to sent the cord. I don’t know what happen, I called the company several time and leave a message and nobody called me back.
