Swift Group—Swift Caravan Cookers
What are the defects?
The caravan gas cooker has not been installed with adequate support in the cavity in accordance with AS/NZS5601 in order to prevent movement.
What are the hazards?
Excess movement or vibration may cause the cookers fitting lines to leak, posing a potential risk of explosion or fire.
What should consumers do?
1. Contact a licensed gas fitter to check that the base of your cooker has been supported and or the top is braced to prevent flexing. In particular check below the cooker to ensure the base of the oven is resting on a shelf and is not hanging freely.
2. 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 the appliance must be checked by a licensed gas fitter for any damage and leaks. In particular the licensed gasfitter must confirm the installation mounting is adequate and undamaged, there is no damage to the appliance and the pipes from the interlock valve, to the oven burner and the grill burner have no signs of damage or fatigue. Fitting a gas leak detector below the appliance is also recommended.
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 email email@example.com
