Description: Propane Grills Modification Kits by Sunbeam Leisure NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 2, 1988 Release # 88-034 Sunbeam Leisure Products Providing Modification Kits For Windows on Propane Grills WASHINGTON -- Following reports of spontaneous breakage of glass windows of 1988 Sunbeam Leisure outdoor propane gas grills, the Sunbeam Leisure Products Company of Neosho, Missouri is initiating a modification program to remount the glass windows to prevent breakage. In a voluntary modification program undertaken in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Sunbeam Leisure said that, because of the way the window was mounted, the glass may spontaneously break from the heat of the grill. Incidents of consumers reporting minor injuries from broken glass are being investigated. A limited number of the suspect grills were sold in the latter part of last year, but most have been sold in 1968. An estimated 320,000 grills are currently in consumer use including Yardmaster models sold by Channel Home Centers and Sears Kenmore models 10663, 10684, 10783 and 10883. Consumers who bought 1988 models of Sunbeam Leisure, Yardmaster and the above Kenmore propane gas grills with a glass window will be supplied with a free modification kit and instructions on remounting the window. The installation can be easily performed by the consumer without special tools. Owners of any of the above brand name 1988 model grills with glass windows should check their model number and have it ready when calling Sunbeam Leisure toll-free at l-800-458-8407 for a free modification kit; Missouri residents should call l- 800-641-2100. Telephones will be staffed Monday through Friday between 7 am and 5 pm, CDT. [Source]
