WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Prizer Painter Stove Works of Reading, Pa., is recalling about 940 BlueStar gas wall ovens due to a fire hazard, U.S. regulators said Thursday.

Some of the ovens have been improperly installed and may have damaged flexible gas appliance connectors, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The recall involves three models of wall ovens made prior to Nov. 23, 2012. The ovens are 24, 30 or 36 inches wide. They were sold for use with natural gas or liquid propane.

The recalled ovens include the 24-inch BlueStar residential model with a swing door, the 30-inch BlueStar with French doors and the 36-inch model with French doors.

They were sold nationwide from January 2008 through November 2012 for between $2,250 and $3,900.

Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled ovens and contact BlueStar for instructions on identifying the recalled units correctly and scheduling a repair, if necessary.

Consumers can call 800-449-8691 for information.
