March 20, 2001Dynasty Gas Ranges Recalled
Angeles, CA (SafetyAlerts) - In
cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Jade Products Inc. is
recalling about 3,300 Dynasty gas ranges. The igniters are too far from the burners, which
can cause a delayed ignition of gas. The large amount of gas released can cause fire to
escape from the oven, putting consumers at risk of burn injuries and house fires.
Jade Products has received three reports of minor
burn injuries when consumers have opened the oven door just as the gas ignited and flames
escaped from the oven.
The recalled Dynasty gas ranges are model numbers
DGRSC and DGR(c), with serial numbers from 050198-A through 280200-Z. The serial plate,
which contains the model and serial numbers, is located under the right burner grate
support on model DGRSC, and under the left burner grate (on the left side wall) on model
DGR(c). Consumers must remove the burner grill to see the serial plate. The range is 30-,
36-, 48-, or 60-inches wide. "Dynasty" is printed on the lower right corner of
the oven door.
Department and appliance stores sold these ranges
nationwide from January 1998 through February 2000 for between $2,900 and $8,900.
Consumers should stop using these ranges
immediately and call Jade Products toll-free at (888) 607-5694 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
ET Monday through Friday.
