Event Hightlights
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada report of a recall involving GE Monogram Pro Rangetop with Grill. When one of the top burner gas control knobs is inadvertently left in a position between OFF and LITE, the burner can fail to light. Because LP gas is heavier than air, this can cause an accumulation of gas in the base of the rangetops with Grills operating on LP gas. This situation creates the potential for a delayed ignition or explosion.

See HSW Product Details tab for specifics on the affected items. This recall involves GE Monogram Pro Rangetop with Grill operating on liquified petroleum (LP or propane) gas. Only natural gas models that have been converted for use with LP gas are included in the recall. Natural Gas units are sold with LP conversion kits for field conversion at the option of the consumer.

GE has received six reports involving explosions in units operating on LP gas, including reports of damage to kitchen cabinets beneath the Rangetop.

The recalled products were sold from October 2008 to August 2011 in Canada, and from May 2008 to June 2011 in the United States.

Corrective Action:Consumers who are operating one of the affected products using LP gas should immediately stop using the product, turn off the gas supply and contact Mabe to schedule a free repair.

For more information, consumers may contact Mabe Leiser S.A. at 1-855-307-0070.
