In cooperation with the The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Maytag Corp. (Newton, IA, U.S.) recalled about 1,170 Jenn-Air downdraft gas cooktops.

The recalled cooktops have switches located too close to the gas tubing leading to the grill burner. Electrical arcing can cause the tubing to leak gas and ignite, resulting in a fire hazard to consumers. Maytag has received four reports of cooktops catching fire during use as a result of a gas leak. There have been no reports of injuries.

The recall includes built-in Jenn-Air model JGD8348CDP downdraft gas cooktops. The cooktops were manufactured in the U.S. by Maytag between Jan. 1, 2004 and Sept. 17, 2004.

The affected units were sold at appliance stores nationwide from January 2004 through September 2004 for about U.S. $2,000.

Customers who purchased one of the recalled cooktops were advised to contact Maytag for a free, in-home repair.
