TThe manufacturer has issued the following safety notice:
Over the last few weeks Beko has been made aware of a small number of incidents involving our 6kg & 7kg Condenser Tumble Dryers manufactured between May 2012 and October 2012, where an electrical component has failed and overheated, leading to a potential risk of fire.
We believe that the risk of failure is low but, as a responsible manufacturer, we have decided to initiate a voluntary corrective action program as a precautionary measure.
These products were independently tested before being placed on the market and meet all UK and European safety standards. Nevertheless, we take the safety of our products very seriously and would like to offer a free of charge in-home modification to remove any potential risk with this component.
We urge you to contact us immediately about this important issue.
We are seeking to contact owners of Beko 6kg & 7kg Condenser Tumble Dryers purchased between May and October 2012 to carry out a free of charge modification. We urge anyone who believes they have an affected model to follow the steps outlined below as a precautionary measure.
