Explosion Hazard: GE Recalls Gas Rangetops

Spread the love
GE Monogram is recalling just under 500 Pro Rangetops, manufactured in Mexico, for liquid petroleum (LP or propane) for a potential to fail to ignite posing a risk of delayed ignition or explosion.

GE has received 6 reports of explosions – YIKES – but no injuries. If you have a 36″ or 48″ rangetop manufactured between 2008 and 2011 stop using it immediately and turn off your gas supply.

To locate your serial number, remove the left knob. The knob should easily slip off (and back on).

If you purchased an LP model or converted a natural gas model to LP, call the GE Recall Hotline 866-645-3956 Monday-Friday 8:00 – 5:00  PM ET to schedule your service call for a free repair. You can also visit their recall page here.

Appliance Savings

Spread the love

Combining utility, manufacturer, store and state rebates when buying a single Energy Star appliance can save hundreds of dollars.

Depending on where you live, the savings on new appliances this spring could be very significant.

Major appliance manufacturers such as Thermador, LG,  Monogram and Sub-Zero are making the dollar go further with large rebates on appliance packages (Ovens, Ranges & Cooktops, etc.) that probably do not fall under the Energy Star requirements in the State Rebate programs.

Rebate Programs Overview

Thermador’s One, Two, FREE

Purchase a Professional Series 36- or 48-inch Range, or any Rangetop, or any Masterpiece Series Cooktop, with an accompanying Professional or Masterpiece Double or Triple Oven and get a free Thermador Emerald Dishwasher.

New for 2010, step-up to Thermador’s top-of-the-line Sapphire™ 6-program Dishwashers for an additional $500 or $750 (depending on model).

Add any Thermador Refrigerator or any two Freedom Columns and get any size free Ventilation System.

Thermaodr Freedom columns are Energy Star Qualified while the built-in refrigeration is not and will not qualify for state rebates.

LG’s Buy More, Save More

Homeowners who purchase an appliance within 2, 3 or 4 categories qualify for a $200, $300 or $500 rebate.  Add a LWS3081ST or LWD3081ST wall oven and get a bonus $500 mail-in rebate for up to $1000 in savings.

Monogram’s Luxury Has It’s Rewards

Monogram’s list of qualified refrigerators appear to be Energy Star Certified making them eligible for State rebate programs.
