    Has anybody got a relatively new Maxi Suite and have used the oven over the fridge? I believe that it is highly dangerous in regards to fire and I have the photos to prove it.
    No oven should be put into a totally enclosed box without ventilation and I wonder if Chausson or any other manufacturer ever really test the ancillary equiptment.

    i think that any oven or microwave positioned at around head height is an accident waiting to happen.
    i wonder what health and safety would say about them.
    ok so you can get a nasty burn from things even at worktop height but from head height you are into plastic surgery.

    the people that design these motorhomes should be forced to live 24/7 for at least a month in every new prototype to find the faults i wonder if then there may be improvements in the design.

    Maxi Suite oven

    Andy
    Already the oven has been condemed by the fire brigade saftey officer and Trading Standards are also involved. There are clear burn marks on the cable for the ignition and combining that with the extreme heat of the wooden box enclosing the oven is a real disaster waiting to happen.

    You can tell ,if you take the gas oven out, that this box was designed for a microwave as inside the box is a French type electric plug. Again I would emphasize ther is no ventilation for this oven . It is totaly enclosed by wood apart from a small gap at the top of the facing oven.

    Until this mattter is resolved I would not use the oven and I am hoping that there is a recall.

    I may add that Chausson is the worst company for replying to emails.

    Is it right-hand drive?
    Did you buy it direct from Chausson or from a dealer?
    If from a dealer, have they responded in a timely fashion and what have they had to say?

    Maxi Suite

    My Chausson Maxi is right hand drive and comes from a British dealer.

    the dealer has been helpful in its limited way, but which dealer actually tests the motorhomes they sell and at the end of the day if there is a problem the only people that can put it right is the manufacturer, ie Fiat gear boxes.
