Saber Gas Grills Recalled Over Potential Flame Bursts

Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

When you’re cooking with a gas grill, it’s very important to be able to control the flow of the gas — too much, and there may be fiery consequences. That’s why Saber Grills is recalling more than a dozen models of its gas grills that could have a problem regulating gas pressure.

Fiery situations

In conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Saber Grills has issued a recall for gas grills and liquid propane regulators. The affected LP regulators allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak and flame bursting from the burner knobs, posing fire and burn hazards to anyone using them.

Thus far, Saber Grills has received 35 reports of regulators malfunctioning, including three reports of singed arms and two reports of burned or singed hair.

What you should do

Immediately stop using the recalled grills and regulators and contact the company for free repair kit with installation instructions. A video on how to install the replacement components is available here.

Consumers with questions can call Saber Grills toll-free at 866-671-7988 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET Saturday, or online at recall.sabergrills.com.

Affected products

The recall involves RA329 LP regulators with a date code in the range of 1120 to 1344, which were:

• Sold with certain Saber LP grills, warranty part kits, and natural gas to LP conversion kits;

• Installed as warranty or service parts in certain other Saber LP grills; or installed in Saber natural gas grills and burners if they have been converted to use LP instead of natural gas.

The grills and LP regulators were sold at specialty outdoor living stores nationwide, including Family Leisure, Fortunoff Backyard Store, and Watson’s, and through authorized websites and catalogs including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Frontgate, from September 2011 to May 2017 for between $800 and $2,000.

The price of the LP conversion kit ranges from $90 to $105. The warranty parts were also sold as service parts for between $50 and $110.

Check the underside of the grill’s grease tray for the model number:

The regulator date code is stamped on the regulator adjacent to the gas tank connection, and the regulator model number is on the center of the regulator:
