Did you know that nearly 400 fires in London have been caused by faulty kitchen appliances over the past five years1? That’s why it’s important to stay current with safety updates and recalls to ensure that your home remains safe and secure.

 

The Register My Appliance service from Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances helps you stay up-to-date with any potential safety issues that could be affecting your appliances. The site offers up links to the registration page of most kitchen appliance brands that are sold in the UK. As such, you can quickly and easily access the online forms required to register

The product information you will need to register each new appliance is:

  •           Brand name
  •           Model
  •           Serial number
  •           Purchase date

 “It is so important that we make sure that we register new appliances and don’t risk missing out on key information that could save lives,” says Jo Swinson Consumer Affairs Minister. “This initiative will make it easier for consumers to register appliances both new and old, and will help to ensure that relevant owners get vital information on product recalls and safety notices.”

While kitchen appliances are built to a high standard in order to meet modern safety requirements, there is always a small risk that a fault could start a fire or damage your property in some way. To reduce the odds of this occurring, it is important to stay up-to-date with any potential recalls or safety notices.
