Saber Grills recalls gas grills, propane regulators

September 27, 2017 By    

Saber Grills is recalling 26,500 gas grills and liquid propane regulators as well as 3,400 warranty parts and conversion kits due to fire and burn hazards.

According to the company, the grills’ regulators can allow gas to flow at a higher pressure than intended, which can result in a gas leak and flame burst from the burner knobs, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

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

The company suggests customers should immediately stop using the recalled grills and contact Saber for a free repair kit with installation instructions. Additionally, customers can contact the company toll-free at 866-671-7988 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, or online.

According to the company, this recall involves model RA 329 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 model number of the grill is located on a rating label located on the underside of the grease tray. 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.

Additional information, including model numbers of affected equipment, is available online.
