Units: About 244,000
Manufacturer: GE Consumer & Industrial, of Louisville, Ky.
Hazard: The extreme heat used in the self-clean cycle can escape, if the wall oven door is removed and incorrectly re-attached by the installer or the consumer. This can pose a fire and burn hazard to consumers.
Incidents/Injuries: GE is aware of 28 incidents of minor property damage in which adjacent kitchen cabinets have been damaged. No injuries have been reported.
Description: This recall involves GE wall ovens sold under the following brand names: GE®, GE Profile™, Monogram® and Kenmore®. The wall ovens were sold in white, black, bisque and stainless steel.

Consumers can continue to use normal baking or broiling function in the oven until the oven is repaired.
Defective product claims are a result of our modern society. The mass production, marketing, and distribution of products now allows negligent, careless, and corrupt businesses to sell defective products to millions of people all over the World. Never in the past has there been such potential for one negligent, careless, or corrupt business to cause great harm to millions of people. Defective products can cause severe damages as can be seen by defective asbestos products, defective vehicles, defective appliances, defective toys, defective guns, cigarettes, defective tires, defective pet food, defective medications, and defective medical devices.
Product Liability Claims (Defective Product Claims)
Product liability claims arise when manufacturers, designers, or distributors produce or sell a dangerous and defective product to the public and this defective product injures, kills, or damages someone. The defective product has to be used for its intended purpose, but if it is and the dangerous product results in damages, serious injury, or death, a product liability claim arises. The most well know types of defective product claims include asbestos products, defective medications, defective medical devices, defective vehicles, and defective tires. However, more recently defective pet food and defective toys have come into the public notice.
These defective product claims include design defect claims, manufacturing defect claims, and failure to warn claims. Complicated product liability claims can sometimes have all three types of product liability claims in them depending on the defective product with which you are dealing.
Design Defect Claims (Defective Product Claims)
The design defect claims stem from products that are designed incorrectly such as some asbestos product claims, automobile defect claims, and gun claims. These design defect claims create products that are inherently defective. The classic example are the Pinto claims where the fuel tank was design incorrectly so that if it was hit from behind, the vehicle would explode.
