Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following sabbath mode temporary fix is from the Star-K on October 14, 2014.

GE Ovens & Ranges 2ND ALERT Temporary Fix
For those consumers who had unexpected GE oven shutdowns over the last two holidays, here is a workaround to avoid this problem:
Enter Sabbath Mode as usual; wait for one bracket to appear on the screen; then, either trip the circuit breaker or unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Re-connect power, and proceed with Sabbath Mode as usual.
GE is aware of the problem, and is working on a fix.
If you have any further questions, you may contact star-k@star-k.org or call 410-484-4110.

The following sabbath mode alert is from the Star-K on September 22, 2014.

General Electric Ranges/Ovens
If you have purchased a GE oven or range within the last year, the Sabbath Mode instructions may state: "To turn the oven off, press Cancel/Off at any time. The oven will immediately turn off and ][ will change to ] indicating that the oven has turned off."

Alternatively, your instructions might read:
"To turn the oven off, press Cancel/Off at any time. At a random time between 30 seconds and 1 minute, the ][ icon will change to the ] icon, indicating that the oven has turned off."

Please note: You may NOT turn the oven off on Shabbos or Yom Tov. These instructions apply only after Shabbos/YomTov when you want to reset the oven to normal, non-Sabbath Mode.

For further information, please see http://www.star-k.org/cons-appl-ge-ovenprods.htm or contact the Star-K at 410-484-4110, or info@star-k.org
