More information from Swift Appliances website:


Date: 08/06/2022

Due to circumstance beyond our control we have been informed by the ACCC that we need to notify our customer in regards to the Incident that has occurred. Please read the notice below and advise your customers that the Swift 500 series is not allowed to be used Australia wide until further notices. We hope this is a temporary situation, We are waiting on a reply from the ACCC and WA authorities as to what steps are to be taken next. Please be patient once we have more information we will advise through our website. Please be informed the electrical element can still be used.

Swift Appliance Group Pty Ltd is currently liaising with the ACCC, WA DMIRS and Resources Safety and Health Queensland regarding gas explosion safety risks in the 500Series Caravan Gas Cookers. We will provide more information as soon as possible after conferring with the regulatory bodies. Consumers must immediately cease using the products until tests determine the cause of the explosion and the products are deemed safe.

If you require any further information, please contact us at: swiftrecall@outlook.com


Regards

Swift Appliance Group.

 


I can only hope that this is resolved in a much more timely and professional manner than the Surburban HWS recall, but not very optimistic!

Thanks Bobdown. I have a Swift 500 series (503 - 3xburners, hotplate and grill) and was unaware of the safety issue until now. I will not use until checking is done, as advised by Swift.

Latest info from Swift Appliances website.

Interesting that the cooktop models identified are in a limited date range and do not include those with 4 gas burners.

Thanks Pete, just received the same email from Retreat Caravans and link to their website.

All getting a bit long-winded, we need to have a recall or clearance.

Cheers Bob
