Beko Fridge Freezers Recall Over Fire Risk

07/07/11

Owners of Beko fridge freezers are being urged to check their models against a list that have been recalled by the manufacturer due to a potentially faulty defrost time switch that could cause a fire.

The problem occurs when water gets into the defrost timer switch, which can lead to an electrical malfunction resulting in plastic components and other highly flammable insulation inside the appliance catching fire.

The appliances affrected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006.

London Fire Brigade says the fault has caused 20 fires within the capital.

For more information about the models that are affected and what you should do, read this information from the Trading Standards Institute.
