Used the electric stove on our 2005 Monticello to boil eggs. We have used the range maybe three times in all - usually use micro or butane stove. The hot plate diameter is 8 1/2", pot diameter 7 1/2", and the clearance to back of unit varies from 3 1/2" to 4". Water was taking a while to boil so I turned range to max. Within minutes the plastic fascia trim on the back counter (shelf) had melted as had the face of a plastic flashlight stored in the rack. Salt and pepper shakers, also in the rack, were too hot to touch. If my wife hadn't checked on the eggs, we probably would have had a fire.

Has anyone encounted a similar problem? Whom do I contact at Doral as this is a major design flaw and should be corrected. There is an older 250 in our marina with a combination electric/alcohol stove and it has a flip-up cover that acts as a backstop for the range. Range is also smaller in diameter and further from back of galley unit. Owner uses it all the time with no problems.

Would appreciate comments.

Just picked up a 2006 Monticello - I'll keep a eye on that.

Thanks for the heads up.
