We have a DCS RDT-305 gas range. The front-mounted controls for the burners must be firmly pushed in and turned in order to turn on the burner. Despite this, one of our cats managed to turn on a burner today. We think that she activated the burner control knob as she was jumping up or down by using the control knob as a ledge—i.e. pushing off with one of her hind feet. Fortunately, we were in the next room and heard the electronic igniter clicking on the burner, so we were able to immediately turn off the burner with no harm done. However, if we had not been home or if this had been at night, it would have eventually caused the handle of an empty pan on top of the stove to melt and ignite, resulting in a catastrophic kitchen fire.
