“The glass in the cooktop does not comply with the Domestic Gas Cooking Appliances Standard,” the ACCC said.
“If the glass breaks it may shatter into fragments and shards that may hit people using the cooktop or people nearby…and pose a risk of serious injury.”
The recall affects the 60cm three-burner cooktop and the 90cm five-burner appliance with model numbers WHG638BC – PNC: 943254149, WHG958BC – PNC: 943254153 or serial numbers 95301134 – 22503805.
Consumers are urged to check the model number of their cooktop to see if it is included in the faulty batch, which was sold nationally, internationally and online from February 2020 to July 18, 2022.
Retailers included Bing Lee, E&S Trading, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and the Good Guys.
Impacted customers should contact Electrolux to organize a refund or for a free replacement by a service technician.
