Register your household appliances
Have you recently moved house? Make sure you check ALL your white goods and household appliances are registered with Register My Appliance, both yours AND those in your home when you moved in.
A recent survey has highlighted the fact that 80% of house movers have no idea if the appliances in their new home are on the radar for a product recall or free safety repair, and as electrical appliances are responsible for up to 5 domestic fires every day, it’s well worth finding out.
In a very small number of cases, manufacturers may identify problems with an appliance once the product has been in use for some time. They then need to contact you to get the fault corrected as quickly as possible. Normally a quick in-home fix by a qualified technician will banish any risk.
It can be very difficult to trace customers as they often do not provide contact details when purchasing a product. So as a consumer, it is important that you take the responsibility to let manufacturers know that you own the appliance and ensure that they can get in touch directly should they need to.
