GE Consumer & Industrial has recalled about 244,000 GE®, GE Profile™, Monogram® and Kenmore® Wall Ovens. If the wall oven door is removed and incorrectly re-attached by the installer or the consumer the extreme heat used in the self-clean cycle can escape. This can pose a fire and burn hazard to consumers. GE is aware of 28 incidents of minor property damage in which adjacent kitchen cabinets have been damaged. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves GE wall ovens sold from October 2002 through December 2004 under the following brand names: GE®, GE Profile™, Monogram® and Kenmore®. The wall ovens were sold in white, black, bisque and stainless steel for between $900 and $3,600. The following model and serial numbers can be found inside the oven on the left interior wall. For microwave combination ovens, the serial number can be found on the left interior wall of the microwave.
Consumers should immediately inspect their ovens to make sure they do not have an incorrectly re-attached wall oven door, which will not open into the flat position. If the wall oven door is incorrectly re-attached, consumers should not use the self-clean cycle and should call GE for a free repair. Consumers can continue to use the normal baking or broiling function in the oven until the oven is repaired.
