EMSD urges checking of three models of gas cooking appliances (with photos)
The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) today (March 14) urged the public to contact respective importers for free checking of the following three models and batches of gas cooking appliances:
|Gilman Group Limited/
|KP16060001 to KP16060200|
|Whirlpool (Hong Kong) Ltd/
|002816200001 to 002816200150|
|Charm Vantage Limited/
|T2181511153 to T2181511247|
* Office hours only
The above appliances failed in a combustion performance test due to improper setting of the air-fuel ratio. However, this does not affect their safe operation.
The importers posted notices announcing the free checking arrangement in newspapers today. They are also contacting their customers to arrange adjustment of the air-fuel ratio setting of the appliances.
The EMSD reminds the public to ensure adequate ventilation when using gas cooking appliances.
