Prizer Painter Stove Works has announced a recall of its BlueStar residential gas wall ovens. Some of the wall ovens have been improperly installed and/or have damaged flexible gas appliance connectors, posing a fire hazard.

This recall involves all colors of three models of BlueStar gas-powered stainless steel wall ovens manufactured prior to November 23, 2012. Oven sizes include 24-, 30- and 36-inch wide units. Each of the three sizes was available for use with natural gas or liquid propane.

The propane version is designated by the letter 'L' at the end of the model number. Model numbers and date codes are located on the rating plate inside the control panel. There is a BlueStar logo on the upper left front of the oven, above the door.

The ovens included in this recall will have one of the follow model numbers: BWO24AGS, BWO24AGSL, BWO30AGS, BWO30AGSL, BWO36AGS or BWO36AGSL.

The recalled BlueStar ovens were sold at appliance stores and authorized kitchen equipment dealers nationwide from January 2008 through November 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ovens, contact BlueStar for instructions on identifying affected units and to schedule a repair.
