Kmart has recalled a popular microwave over fears they will catch fire. The Kambrook Essentials Microwave Oven 30L, KMO400 was sold across Australia during 2008 to September 2013. However, consumers are advised to unplug the appliance from the socket outlet.
A microwave sold exclusively through Kmart has been recalled following fears they can catch on fire. The discount department store released a nationwide recall for the Kambrook Essentials Microwave Oven 30L (KMO400) sold nationally during 2008 to September 2013 with production date code 833 to 1321 inclusive. Consumers have been advised to ‘immediately stop using the appliance and unplug it from the socket outlet’.
‘The defect may result in a fire, potentially causing injury to consumers or damage to surrounding area,’ the recall notice reads.
As the fault is only batch related consumers have been informed they can return the unit to any Kmart store nationally in exchange for a replacement.
The defect is a potential component failure, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said.
