The consumer says the outdoor propane cooker was in use for about 10 minutes when the propane hose melted, detached from the fryer and shot out flames.

The consumer contacted the manufacturer who said they are aware of the problem but he says they did not seem overly concerned with it. He was told that the newer units have a kit that removes the safety issue.

Comment from BARBOUR INTERNATIONAL, INC. 8/23/2013
This incident is not a result of any part malfunction. The Instruction Manual and Warnings clearly instruct consumers to perform a gas leak test before using their outdoor gas app1iance, and at certain intervals. For all brands of outdoor and portable gas appliances, it is possible for certain components to vibrate loose during transportation. Consequently, it is important for consumers to regularly perform gas leak testing. It is unclear whether or not the consumer performed a gas leak test prior to use; but most likely bubbles would have appeared indicating a gas leak. Regardless, Barbour has initiated a full redesign of the fryer burner assembly with the goal of eliminating the possibility of such gas leaks. All distributors were notified about the possibility of a gas leak at the burner assembly, and that a newly designed burner assembly is now available. For more information, please contact Barbour International at 1-800-864-6194.
