Got my no fridge letter today for ASMU check in August 31. I called and was told they had a limited number of refrigerators, but I asked for one for milk for our toddler and baby. CM said she would put the request in, but couldn't promise anything. She was very nice on the phone.

I confirmed my room and building request while I had her on the line and told her about a few events we were celebrating on our trip.

in other news 29 days until our 10 day trip so I am sure we can get by no matter if we have a fridge or not.
The suites were excluded from the recall, but not the other value/All Star rooms.

Same here - we are staying on points at Boardwalk Villas starting 9/11 and received the frig letter on Tuesday. Many DISers here are saying DVC was not affected by frig recall - but then why in the world did we get the letter? They know exactly where we are staying, so why send it out to entire resorts that are not affected? DVC studios could very well have the same frig make & model as other resorts.

Hoping that's true!!
Not sure who to believe anymore....

Does anyone know if the Cabins are excluded? Received letter today. I think that they are sending them out to everyone for the "Just incase factor:... but never know..

We have taken a portable cooler/fridge before and we never had a problem. 👍👍

Any news on a timeline for them to be replaced? Are all the resorts affected? We were at sports about a week and a half ago and didn't have one initially but one of our travel group is an insulin dependent diabetic so they went somewhere outside our resort and were able to find us one for his meds. They did offer to keep his meds in a frig at the desk but we opted to do ice in a lunchbox for the day not trusting them to not get misplaced.

When first announced, WDW said it would take about 4 months to have them all replaced.

The DVC rooms and the family suites were the only ones not affected.

Thought they were ok until one had a burning smell and engineering came ! They shpwed us the tag on the plug that said " out of service,do not use"
Clearly as I read here some don't think they need to follow rules !!! Glad we were ok .......
