The Consumer Product Safety Commission and LG Electronics is recalling 161,000 LG Electric ranges because the burners may stay on once people have powered them off.

The company has received 80 reports of this happening. No fires or injuries have been reported.

The recalled ranges involve models LRE30451, LRE30453, LRE30755, LRE30757, and LRE30955ST. They were sold in black, white and stainless steel and with a smooth black ceramic glass top cooking surface. The recalled ranges have serial numbers starting with 512, 601, 602, 603, 604, 605, 606, 607, 608, 609, 610, 611, 612, 701, 702, 703, 704, 705, 706, 707, 708, 709, 710, 711, 712, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805, 806, 807, 808, 809, 810, 901, 902, 903, 904, 905, and 906. The model and serial numbers can be found on a label that can be seen by opening the storage drawer at the base of the unit. The electric ranges are about 47½ inches tall to the top of the backguard, 29 inches wide and 28 inches deep

Best Buy, Home Depot, Sears, and regional appliance retailers nationwide sold these from January 2006 to June 2010 for between $800 and $1999.

If you have one you should contact LG to schedule a free in-home repair.

The number to call is (855) 400-4638, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, or go here.
