About 470 GE Monogram® Pro Rangetop with Grills have been recalled by General Electric – Appliances, of Louisville, Ky. Burners on Rangetops operating on liquefied petroleum (“LP” or propane) may fail to ignite or light if the gas control knob is left in a position between OFF and LITE, posing a risk of delayed ignition or explosion. GE has received six reports involving explosions in units operating on LP gas.
The grills operate on liquefied petroleum (“LP” or propane) or natural gas. The Rangetop units are either 36 or 48 inches wide with a stainless steel finish and the GE Monogram® badge located on the front center of the unit. The burner control knobs are located on the front panel that overhangs the cabinet. The model and serial numbers can be found on a label located behind the far left burner knob, or on the bottom of the unit. All LP models and only natural gas models that have been converted for use with LP gas are included in the recall. GE has notified known owners of natural gas units and will provide a free repair for any consumers who converted their Rangetop with Grill to LP gas.
The grills were sold by General Electric authorized representatives and distributors nationwide from May 2008 through August 2011 for between $3,400 and $4,700. Consumers who are operating the product on LP (propane) gas should stop using the product immediately, turn off the gas supply to the product, and contact GE to schedule a free repair.
