Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Cooking Appliances are subject to this recall:

  • Thetford Triplex Plus Oven/Grill Cooking Appliances, an oven/grill cooking appliance fitted into Jayco Vans with the affected chassis numbers from “R81942” up to “S81151”

According to the ACCC, the gas control valve may be misaligned allowing the valve to stick in an open position. If the defect occurs, there is a risk of gas building up into the appliance when not lit and this may lead to a possible explosion within the oven.

Consumers should cease using the oven immediately. Turn the gas off at the bottle or turn off the isolation valve for the oven. The isolation valve is found under the van near the oven. Please call Thetford Australia Pty Ltd on 03 9358 0705 as soon as possible to arrange inspection and replacement by a qualified service agent.
