Frigidaire Gas Cooktop Recall Issued Due to Risk of Gas Leaks and Fires
Electrolux Group has issued a recall impacting about 77,000 Frigidaire gas cooktops, due to a risk that the stoves may leak gas, posing a fire hazard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Frigidaire gas cooktop recall on August 31, warning the control knobs of the stove may crack or break, which can cause a gas leak and fire risk.
According to the recall notice, Electrolux is aware of at least 63 consumer complaints involving the control knobs creating a gas leak, which has resulted in at least one minor injury, and at least one fire.
The recall impacts approximately 77,000 Frigidaire Stainless-Steel 30-inch 4 Burner Gas Cooktops with model number FFGC3026SS, and Frigidaire Stainless-Steel 36-inch 5 Burner Gas Cooktops with model number FFGC3626SS. The recalled models are equipped with plastic control knobs attached to a black shaft.
The stoves were distributed nationwide through Lowe’s, The Home Depot, and other appliance stores from March 2016 until April 2022, and retailed for about $1,000.
