Midea electric oven explodes again, officials argue it’s a small probability event
Recently, Mr. Su of Weifang, Shandong Province, revealed that the Midea oven he bought suddenly exploded during normal use, fast technology reported. Mr. Su questioned the quality of Midea’s products, but Midea’s staff said that they were not inferior products and the oven had a self explosion rate. At present, Mr. Su has accepted the compensation plan put forward by Midea, including return of goods and compensation of 200 yuan.
This is not the first time Midea’s oven has exploded.
In February of this year, Ms. Ma of Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province, took the oven and roasted it for the first time in strict accordance with the instructions. As a result, the oven exploded suddenly in the process of empty baking, and the glass splashed all around, which scared the children at home to cry.
Afterwards, Ms. Ma contacted the customer service of Midea, and then the after-sales staff of Midea told her that according to the insurance, the maximum compensation was 150 yuan.
However, Ms. Ma spent 249 yuan on the oven, which made it difficult to accept the compensation offered by Midea. Finally, after coordination, Midea paid twice the price of the oven.
At that time, the relevant person in charge of Midea oven said: “for the whole incident, after special investigation and analysis, the company found that the accident was actually the self explosion of tempered glass at high temperature during the preheating process of the oven.” The person in charge explained that glass self explosion is a common problem in the tempered glass industry, but it is a low probability event, not due to the design or manufacturing of the product itself.
Judging from the official responses to the two incidents, Midea did not think its products had quality problems, but pointed out that the oven had a self explosion rate.
