BSH Home Appliances Corp. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have announced a voluntary recall of more than 37,000 Thermador Built-In Ovens. This is the second major recall of Thermador ovens, as another 42,000 were recalled in June 2007. The current recall was caused by gaps in the insulation that can cause nearby cabinetry to catch fire, specifically during the self-cleaning process.
The Huntington Beach, California-based BSH Home Appliances has received two reports of cabinet fires from consumers thus far, as well as one additional report of incident. However, no injuries have been reported at this time. Both the CPSC and BSH urge consumers to stop using their Thermador Built-In Ovens immediately and contact BSH for further instructions.
Consumers who own and use Thermador’s built in double ovens with model numbers C272B, C302B, SEC272, SEC302, SECD272 and SECD302 and serial numbers between FD8403 through FD8701 are affected by this recall. These models were manufactured and sold between June 2004 and July 2007 at most major appliance stores, and cost between $3,000 and $4,400. Serial numbers are located on the underside of the oven’s control panel.
BHS and Thermador will provide a free inspection and repair if a consumer’s Thermador oven poses a threat to cabinetry fires. Thermador customer service representatives are available at (800) 701-5230 at any time, and additional information is available at www.thermador.com.
