BSH Home Appliances Corp. is recalling about 42,000 Thermador brand built-in ovens. The oven can have gaps in the insulation where overheating can occur and when used in the self-cleaning mode it can cause nearby cabinets to overheat, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
The recall involves Thermador brand built-in single ovens and combination models that have a conventional oven and a microwave. The model numbers of the single ovens are C271B, C301B, SEC271B and SEC301B. The model numbers of the combination models are SEM272B, SEM302B, SEMW272B and SEMW302B. The ovens have date codes between FD8403 and FD8701. The model number and date code can be found on the underside of the control panel.
Appliance and specialty stores sold the ovens from November 2004 through May 2007 for between $2,400 and $3,900.
Consumers should contact BSH Home Appliances immediately to schedule an inspection and free repair, if necessary.
