Jade Products Has Recalled to Repair Dynasty Gas Ranges

Commerce, CA. (SafetyAlerts) - Jade Products Inc. has recalled to repair about 7,200 Dynasty gas ranges. The ranges could tip-over if a heavy weight is placed on an open oven door, posing a risk of burn injuries from hot food or liquids in cooking containers.

Jade Products has not received any reports of incidents. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The Dynasty gas ranges included in this program are all 30, 36, and 48-inch units with the model number DGRSC. The model number is located on the serial plate that is accessed by lifting the right hand cooking module from the range top. The brand name "Dynasty" appears on the front of the range.

Appliance and retail stores nationwide sold these ranges from January 1996 through December 2001 for between $3,000 and $7,400.

Consumers may continue to use the ranges but are cautioned not to place any objects on the open oven door until an anti-tip bracket has been installed. Consumers should call Jade Products toll-free at (888) 607-5694 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to arrange for free installation of an anti-tip bracket.

The installation of the anti-tip brackets will bring the recalled ranges into compliance with the stability test requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z21.1 Standard for Household Gas Cooking Appliances.

Some of these ranges were also involved in a separate March 2001 recall to repair a delayed gas ignition defect
