BSH Home Appliances Corp. of Huntington Beach, CA, U.S. has voluntarily recalled about 37,000 Thermador brand built-in ovens, according to a release from The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. This is an expansion of June 2007 recall of 42,000 built-in ovens.
The ovens have gaps in the insulation where overheating can occur, and when used in the self-cleaning mode, this can cause nearby cabinets to catch fire.
BSH has received three additional reports of incidents, including two that resulted in fires that damaged surrounding cabinets. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Thermador Brand built-in double ovens with model numbers C272B, C302B, SEC272, SEC302, SECD272, and SECD302 and serial numbers between FD8403 through FD8701. The recalled items were manufactured in the U.S. and were sold at appliance and specialty stores nationwide from June 2004 through July 2007 for between U.S. $3,000 and $4,400.
