    Bosch and Neff gas hobs pose explosion risk

    If you have an affected hob, disable your gas supply and contact Bosch for a repair.

    Thousands of Bosch and Neff gas hobs have been recalled amid fears they could be vulnerable to leaks or explosions.

    Bosch says that owners of some of its built-in gas hobs should stop using them immediately, as damage to gas connectors could cause an uncontrolled gas leak in certain circumstances and in very rare cases an explosion.

    The affected models, from leading manufacturer Bosch, are the Bosch NGU4151DB and the Neff T20S31N0. Both were produced between January 2009 and October 2011. There are an estimated 3,898 of these gas hobs in homes across the UK.

    Although this warning can be read in all of the daily newspapers this morning, I think that it is still a good thing to do to get it right from Which?

    Thanks for the information Paps.

    I don't have any of those makes or models, but I am sure that some of your readers might.

    While electricity can obviously be dangerous because of risk of shock, gas is much more dangerous because of the risk of fire or explosion. ( Not a lot of people know that because natural gas replaced coal gas there is no longer the risk of being poisoned by a gas leak ). ( Head in the oven days are now numbered ).
