Register your household appliances
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging residents in Essex to check their fridge-freezers after it was confirmed yesterday that the fire in Grenfell Tower was started by a Hotpoint fridge-freezer.
The Government is asking consumers who believe they may own a Hotpoint fridge freezer model number FF175BP (white) or FF175BG (grey) to call Whirlpool Corporation’s freephone hotline on 0800 316 3826 or visit www.hotpointservice.co.uk/fridgefreezer to register their details for further updates.
Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is also encouraging residents to register all household appliances with www.registermyappliance.org.uk so they can keep-up-to-date with the latest product and safety information.
The registermyappliance.org.uk website allows you to register electrical good from almost any manufacturer in one simple place. It’s not just for new appliances; you can register anything you bought in the last 12 years.
Head of Community Safety, Neil Fenwick said:
“It only takes a few minutes to register appliances and you will have the peace of mind of knowing that if there is an issue or a product recall you will know about it straight away.
“We want to encourage everyone to register all their household goods, no matter how long you have had them. As well as providing up-to-date information on product recalls and safety issues the website also has valuable advice on correct maintenance, safe usage, installation.”
