Viking Range of Greenwood, Miss., is recalling about 3,050 Viking 5 Series Freestanding Gas Ranges.

The rigid gas tubing can separate at the joint to the bake, broil, and griddle burners, posing a risk of a gas leak and fire hazard when these burners are in operation.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves Viking Range Freestanding 5 Series Gas Ranges (models VGR and VGIC) manufactured between August 10, 2021, and December 1, 2021. The products were sold in stainless steel, white, and 14 other contemporary colors.

The ranges were sold in various surface configurations including all burners or burners with griddle and/or grill. A list of the recalled ranges may be found here.

The ranges, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at ABT, Ferguson, Best Buy, Pacific Sales, PC Richard & Son, and other stores nationwide from August 2021, through December 2021, for between $5,220 and $19,300.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the bake, broil, and griddle functions to avoid the risk of a gas leak and contact Viking Range to arrange for a free repair by an authorized service provider.

Consumers may continue to use only the top surface burners of the range, which are covered by the cooking grates on the top surface of the range. The griddle and ovens should not be operated.
