What to do

  • If you have one of these models check its serial number.
  • The serial number is inside the slide out drawer or on the rear panel of the appliance, or with your operating manual.

If your stove has one of these serial numbers:

  • Contact Parmco immediately on 0800 727 626 or email safety@parmco.co.nz.
  • Check the stove for a gas smell, ensuring you have turned off all burners first.
  • If you find a leak shut the unit off at the gas main.

Parmco will send a service technician to replace gas valves on all affected models free of charge.
