Swift Appliance Group has issued a warning to all Swift 500 Gas Cooker owners to not use their stove until further notice.
It comes after a person was injured while using the cooker in a caravan.
It was identified the failure point was in the internal piping at the outlet connection point of the front left control valve.
It is being advised that owners should:
- Owners of caravans and recreational vehicles should check if their cooking appliance is a Swift 500 series appliance and avoid use until the extent of the issue is known and documented.
- The gas supply to the appliance can be isolated at the gas isolation valve, adjacent to the appliance, to allow the electrical element and other gas appliances to be used safely.
- If you smell gas, turn off the gas immediately at the cylinders and contact a gas work licence holder to check the gas system and all gas appliances for safe and correct operation.
