BEKO Fridge Freezer Fire Risk

Following a fire in a first floor flat in Swansea city centre last Saturday – the cause of which was identified as a faulty defrost timer (located at the back of the fridge), which overheated – Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue are asking that all owners of BEKO fridge freezers check the model number against the list below and contact BEKO direct on  0800 917 2018 if their model is listed.

Apparently a recall notice was issued in 2011 after a number of its fridge freezers were found to be a fire safety risk but many owners are still not aware of the risk.

Affected Models

The BEKO frost free fridge freezer models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. These have a serial number that begins with either 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06. and this information can be found on a label inside the fridge. BEKO is making a free of charge modification to all affected models, this modification takes approximately 30mins.
