Anyone who's had a conversion done in the last year or so, it might be worth checking what cooker you've had installed!!

***SMEV 9222/9722 RECALL***

Thought I'd post for anyone here who's currently converting an Elgrand or who had one after june 2020.

Some smev 9222/9722 units sold after june 2020 have a dangerous fault causing them to ignite gas from underneath. They may flame from the gas tap as well. Dometic have recalled these units and you can contact any dometic approved workshop to check.

Worth being on the safe side!

I've got the smev9222 in my conversion but dating back to 2017, so I'm OK.

But I am not overly enamoured with it: the spark ignition packed in yonks ago and now the thermal flame failure gizmos seem to take for ever to operate.

The trouble is, the size is perfect and there aren't many alternatives.

Glad I spotted this, was looking at cookers for my conversion so will be steering clear of this one now! Thanks for posting!

The FL1780 looks a great alternative although the spilt top of the SMEV 9222 is useful in that if just using the hob then the top over the sink is more working space and vice versa.

I have found the equivalent CAN 1765 which has 2 lids and pretty much same dimensions as the SMEV, if not there’s always the option to get as 2 separate pieces. Thetford do a version as well but that seems to be bit more expensive!
