Gas leak risk with some Bosch and Neff gas hobs

Danger Here is a new appliance safety warning. Please share this warning. Some models of Bosch and Neff built-in gas hobs have been found to be vulnerable to a gas leak – and therefore a potential explosion.

The manufacture says, “due to potential damage to installed gas connectors, in certain circumstances gas can escape in an uncontrolled manner and in extremely rare cases a risk of explosion can arise.” BSH (the manufacturer) is offering every owner of an affected appliance a free replacement of the gas connector. This implies there is a fault or weakness in this connector that could cause it to leak gas.

Which gas hobs are affected?

In the UK these built-in gas hobs from the production period are affected: Bosch model: NGU4151DB (produced January 2009 – October 2011) and Neff model: T20S31N0 (produced January 2009 – October 2011)

Check if your gas hob is affected

Full instructions on how to check your gas hob are available on the following web page Important safety notice – POSSIBLE RISK OF GAS LEAK. There is also a freephone phone number and a photo of one of the affected hobs.

Full instructions on what to do are on the manufacturer’s website. However, obviously you need to turn off the gas supply to the hob immediately and stop using it.

    I was really surprised as to the potential of Gas leaks as the above products have always had a reputation for being the best when they were produced in Germany. Sadly we don’t know the providence of where goods are being produced now days which might account for failing standards and inferior products.
    I’ve got a white goods that are 2O years old and still going strong. Thanks for alerting us to the potential problems as I was considering Neff
