Cooktops Recalled After Some Turn Themselves On

NEW YORK – More than 26,000 glass cooktops have been recalled because they can turn themselves on.

They were sold between March 2017 and August 2019, under the Whirlpool, Kitchenaid and Jennair brands.

According to the Us Consumer Product Safety Commission, the cooktops pose a burn and fire hazard, but the recall notice doesn’t explain how the cooktops turn themselves on.

The glass cooktops were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Best Buy and other stores.

People who have these cooktops in their homes are urged to contact Whirlpool to arrange for the installation of a replacement cooktop free of charge.
