Electrolux Group recalls Frigidaire gas cooktops due to the risk of gas leaks and fire

Gas Cooktop.jpgIt’s always important to watch out for fire hazards. I picked out this recent recall to write about this week because of it. I’ll write about an even bigger recall, glass door knobs, next week.

Electrolux Group is recalling about 77,000 Frigidaire four- and five-burner gas cooktops.

Plastic control knobs with a black shaft on the cooktop can crack or break during use, posing a risk of a gas leak and fire hazard.

Electrolux has received 63 reports of these control knobs defects that included one minor injury from a gas leak and one report of fire.

This recall involves all Frigidaire stainless-steel 30-inch 4-burner gas cooktops, model FFGC3026SS, and Frigidaire stainless-steel 36-inch 5-burner gas cooktops, model FFGC3626SS, with control knobs with black shafts. Click here to get serial number information.

The cooktops were sold at Lowe’s, The Home Depot, and other appliance stores nationwide from March 2016 through April 2022. The cost was about $1,000.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cooktops, check for plastic control knobs with a black shaft, and contact Electrolux Group for a free set of replacement knobs, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise. Consumers can continue to use knobs with a chrome-colored shaft.
