A range that's part of the recent BlueStar range and wall oven recall.

Prizer-Painter Stove Works has recalled more than 7,000 ranges and wall ovens sold under the Big Chill and BlueStar brand names because of a potential burn hazard.

Using the convection fan in the oven while preheating or broiling can cause unignited gas to accumulate, then ignite in the oven cavity, posing a burn risk when the door is opened. There have been 51 reports of such incidents from consumers, including seven reports of minor burns. 

You'll find model numbers for the full list of affected appliances and serial numbers on the Consumer Product Safety Commission's recall notice. To find the model and serial numbers, refer to the CPSC notice for model-specific locations. On most ranges, it appears underneath the removable back guard. 

BlueStar and Big Chill are offering a free inspection and repair. 

Consumer Reports tested one of the models under recall, the BlueStar RCS36SBSS, $3,600, but did not encounter this specific problem. The model was at the lower end of our ratings, scoring a 41. As for its cooking performance, there are better choices.
