Summary:
PETERSON INDUSTRIES IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2010 AND 2011 EXCEL WINSLOW, LIMITED, AND WILD CARGO MOTOR HOMES EQUIPPED WITH SUBURBAN GAS COOK STOVES WITH SEALED BURNERS. THE UNITS INVOLVED USE AN ALUMINUM TUBE TO CARRY LIQUID PROPANE GAS FROM THE OVEN CONTROL VALVE TO THE GAS ORIFICE WHICH SUPPLIES GAS TO THE BURNER. THIS CAN CAUSE THE TUBE TO BREAK RESULTING IN A GAS LEAK WHEN THE OVEN BURNER ATTEMPTS TO LIGHT.
Consequence:
A GAS LEAK OCCURRING IN THE AREA OF THE OVEN PILOT CAN CAUSE A "FLASH" WHEN THE GAS IGNITES, AND WOULD CAUSE A FIRE IF THE OVEN VALVE IS NOT PROMPTLY TURNED OFF.
Remedy:
PETERSON INDUSTRIES WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND DEALERS WILL INSTALL A REPLACEMENT GAS LINE THAT HAS BEEN SOURCED AND TESTED TO INSURE THAT THE DEFECT WHICH CREATED THE STRESS POINT HAS BEEN ELIMINATED. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 3, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT PETERSON INDUSTRIES at 1-785-282-6825.
