Email to a Friend

May 22, 2017—Arçelik A.S. recalled certain Blomberg and Summit electric ranges, because they might become energized, because a screw was not installed during manufacturing to secure the grounding strap, which poses electric shock and electrocution hazards.

The recall involves Blomberg BERU 24200 SS, BERU 24100 SS and Summit CLRE24 24-inch-wide, freestanding glass-top electric ranges. The recalled ranges were sold in black and stainless steel. The brand name “Blomberg” or “Summit,” the model number and a 10-digit serial number are on a label that’s on the range’s lower fame inside of the oven door.

The recalled products were sold from October 2012 through March 2017 at AJ Madison, State Street Discount and other stores nationwide and online at amazon.com.

In August 2016, a plumber died from electrocution after he came into contact with an energized range and a grounded object.

Consumers immediately should stop using the recalled range and should avoid all contact with the product until the electricity supply to it is cut off. Consumers may call Arçelik A.S. to schedule a free on-site inspection and repair.

For more information, consumers may call Arçelik A.S. at 877/271-1489 Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. ET, or go to blombergappliances.us.
