The following notice has been published in the national press regarding : AEG Electrolux Zanussi & Electrolux DISHWASHERS.
“Our quality control programme has identified that a purchased connector component presents a potential risk of fire in some series of Electrolux, AEG-Electrolux and Zanussi-Electrolux dishwashers. No product bought before June 2006 is affected
Models with this potential problem are listed below.
The Model (Mod), PNC and Serial Number (S.N.) of the dishwasher are printed on the rating plate on the right side of the dishwasher door.
The location of the rating plate is also shown in the user guide that came with the appliance. If the model number matches one in the table below and falls into the given serial number range then the dishwasher is an affected model.”
Only the following serial numbers are affected: 62400001 to 72399999 (*except AEG-Electrolux model F50765, serial numbers affected are 62400001 to 62799999 and 64100001 to 7079999 and 71700001 to 72399999)
If you are the owner of an affected model you must stop using your dishwasher and switch off the appliance.
This safety notice does not affect any other Electrolux, AEG-Electrolux or Zanussi-Electrolux appliance.
Concerned? Check your model number on the AEG-Electrolux site
Here’s a link to the AEG-Electrolux site that lets you enter your model number and PNC number to check if your dishwasher is affected. There’s also a telephone helpline number and an email address available – Dishwasher Safety notice
NOTE: The link above is the third link I’ve used after each of the previous two stopped working when someone at Electrolux removed the page breaking the link. If it breaks again please let me know. I don’t know if it’s incompetence or wilful action but there’s no excuse for breaking links to serious safety issues. If they want to move the page it should be redirected.
