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

  • Swift Caravan Cookers, all Cookers up to five (5) years old by date of caravan purchase.

According to the ACCC, Cookers are required to be regularly serviced but must be checked by Swift after five years. The Caravan Gas Cooker has not been installed with adequate support in the cavity in accordance with AS/NZS5601 in order to prevent movement. Excess movement or vibration may cause the Cookers fitting lines to leak, posing a potential risk of explosion or fire.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession a recalled Swift Caravan Cooker, please do not use it. Instead, kindly review and act upon these three (3) steps:

  1. Contact a licensed gas fitter to check that the base of your cooker has been supported and/ or the top frame is braced to prevent flexing. If you find that the Cooker is not supported as per the installation instructions and requirements of AS/NZS 5601 you must contact the caravan manufacturer to have this rectified; and
  2. The appliance must be checked by a licensed gas fitter for any damage and leaks. Fitting a gas leak detector is also recommended; and
  3. If you are unsure of how to assess the installation or you are unable to contact a caravan manufacturer because it has ceased trading contact Swift for further advice on: 03 93593068 or by e-mail accounts@swiftappliancegroup.co.au.
