The Coleman Company, Inc. Recalls Propane Hoses On Coleman Propane "Cookin' Machines"

Wichita, KS (SafetyAlerts) - The Coleman Company, Inc. is recalling propane hoses installed on Coleman propane "Cookin' Machines" because of possible fire hazards. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to Coleman, some 30,000 Cookin' Machines manufactured between November 1987 and March 1989 have hoses that may come loose from the fuel valve connection after repeated use. If the hose should loosen when the fuel value is turned "on," fuel may leak from the hose and could present a risk of personal injury or property damage if ignited. The company has received reports of five hoses coming loose and causing some fire damage. The manufacturer suggested retail price was $76 for the standard model and $82 for the electronic ignition model.

Consumers with a Coleman propane Cookin' Machine purchased after November 1987 should discontinue using the product and call Coleman's toll-free hotline at 1-800-835-3278 for instructions concerning replacement of the hose. The company has redesigned the hose to correct the potential problem and will provide a replacement hose at no charge to the consumer. The toll-free line is open between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
