WASHINGTON (Reuters) - General Electric Co is recalling about 244,000 wall ovens under the GE, GE Profile, Monogram and Kenmore brands because of a fire and burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

The problem is that some of the ovens may have their door attached incorrectly, allowing enough heat to escape during the self-cleaning cycle to pose a danger, the CPSC said in a statement on its web site.

"GE is aware of 28 incidents of minor property damage in which adjacent kitchen cabinets have been damaged. No injuries have been reported," the statement said.

The ovens were sold nationwide from October 2002 to December 2004 and cost between $900 and $3,600, the agency said.

Consumers are asked to immediately inspect their oven to see if it has an incorrectly reattached door, which will not open into the flat position.

If incorrectly reattached, consumers should not use the self-clean cycle and can call GE for a free repair at 1 888 569-1588.

Details about the recall are posted at www.cpsc.gov/.
