A safety notice has been issued involving built in ovens manufactured by Electrolux under the Electrolux, Moffat and Tricity Bendix brands. The issue involves single built in electric ovens (no product purchased before March 2007 is affected).
Quote: Our quality control programme has identified under certain circumstances there is a potential risk of fire whilst using the grill function on a limited number of Single Built In Electric Ovens branded Electrolux, Zanussi-Electrolux, Moffat and Tricity Bendix.
There are no details on the exact nature of the risk but they do say, “if your oven is affected you must ensure that you use the grilling function, with the oven door closed in line with the manufacturer’s instructions.”

I did have a link to the notice on the Electrolux site but the page it went to has been removed. I can now find no mention of this notice anywhere on their site. Presumably they are 100% happy that every single appliance affected has been dealt with and it’s not possible for any to be still in use and at risk from catching fire?
