Indesit tumble dryer recall
November 24, 2015
Indesit has identified a potential concern with two types of tumble dryers (condenser and vented dryers) manufactured between April 2004 and October 2015. In some rare cases excess lint/fluff can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.
The affected brands are:
- Hotpoint –Artison
What to do:
Indesit are now asking owners of Indesit, Hotpoint and Creda brands, who have not had their appliances already repaired, to contact Indesit. Indesit will arrange a service visit and modify the dryer in the consumer’s home at no charge. Indesit invite all consumers with an Indesit, Hotpoint and Creda branded dryer purchased between April 2004 and October 2015, to visit their dedicated website www.indesithotpointsafety.com or contact Indesit by telephone on 1 800 804 320.
Indesit also recommend that consumers may continue to use their products, provided that the appliances are not left unattended whilst operating. Indesit also remind consumers of the need for proper cleaning and maintenance as outlined in the user manual.
