We had a kitchen fire this weekend when somehow the stovetop turned itself on. We were reorganizing the kitchen cupboards and placed a plastic tub on the stovetop as all counters were full. The stove had not been used that day and was cold and off. Suddenly only seconds later, the tub had melted and contents were ablaze with huge flames catching towels, - anything nearby and flammable ! My husband turned on the kitchen sink spray while I got our fire extinguisher- and we put out the huge blaze; the melted toaster oven, burns on the floor and small items incenerated . Hours of cleaning by us and then a crew brought in. The house still smells of smoke. This stovetop has been a problem since we purchased it. Simply walking normally near the stove causes the dials to drift - from small burner low to double burner high, etc. Several times we were certain we had clicked the large front burner OFF, and then to see it on high moments later. A real fire hazard I want out of my house! Unsafe!!!!!!!!! Should be recalled.
