GE Appliances’ electric cooktops have been recalled due to burn hazards. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) posted the recall notice on Nov. 30, 2023.
According to the CPSC, the cooktop’s burners could remain running even with the knobs turned to the “off” position. The knob controls can be misaligned and have fractured burner knob components.
GE Appliances received 83 incident reports of the burner failing to regulate temperature accurately or power off when the knob is in the “off” position.
Approximately 11,000 electric cooktops are included in the recall.
