The manufacturer has issued the following safety notice:
Bosch is voluntarily undertaking a free in-home repair programme of affected dishwashers which were manufactured between 1999 and early 2005. The affected dishwashers are certain models in the batch number range from FD 7901 to FD 8504.
An electrical component on a limited number of Bosch, Neff and Siemens branded dishwashers may overheat and in very rare cases cause a potential fire hazard.
To identify if you are the owner of one of the affected dishwashers, please do the following:
- Go to your dishwasher and get your model details and batch number. These details can be found either engraved on the top or on a sticker on the left hand side of the inner part of the door.
- Check whether your batch number range lies within FD 7901 to FD 8504 – if not, you are not affected by this safety notice.
What to do
If your batch number falls within the range above, please visit www.repairaction.co.uk and enter your model number together with your batch number to verify whether your particular dishwasher is affected. From here you will be able to arrange your free of charge repair immediately.
Alternatively, contact the (freephone) call centre. Opening hours are Mon – Fri 8am to 8pm and Sat – Sun 8am to 5pm. Freephone 0800 023 4881
