In cooperation with CSA International, Maytag Corporation of Newton, IA, U.S. is voluntarily recalling approximately 30 Jenn-Air Downdraft Gas Cooktops in Canada.

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, although there have been no reports of injuries.

The recall includes Jenn-Air model JGD8348CDP downdraft gas cooktops. They have serial numbers xxxxxxxEA through xxxxxxxER. The cooktops were manufactured by Maytag between Jan. 1, 2004 and Sept. 17, 2004.

Canadian consumers were advised to stop using the grill or burners activated by the two left-hand controls until a free, in-home repair is completed. The center and right hand burners can be used.
