CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION (CPSC) AND BSH HOME APPLIANCES CORP. ANNOUNCE RECALL OF THERMADOR GAS RANGES
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BSH Home Appliances Corp., of Huntington Beach, California, is voluntarily recalling about 2,460 Thermador brand gas ranges. Hot air is vented below the small oven and causes the metal surface on the door of this oven to get too hot, presenting a burn hazard to consumers.
The recalled ovens are 48-inch All-Gas Professional Ranges and were sold under the Thermador brand name. The ranges are stainless steel and have small and large side-by-side ovens. Only model numbers PRG484GGUS, PRG486GDUS, and PRG486GLUS and serial number ranges 98020001-98129999, 99010001-99129999, 20010001-20129999 and 81010001- 81119999 are included in the recall. The model and serial number are located on a data plate behind the kick panel at the bottom front of the range.
