North Wales Fire and Rescue Service is asking the public to check their tumble dryers following a fault being identified in certain appliances.
Beko has issued a safety alert about a potential fire risk of 3,450 of its condenser tumble dryers and told customers to stop using them immediately.
Beko has asked customers with 8kg and 9kg Beko and Blomberg condenser tumble dryers which were manufactured between May and November 2012 to register for a free modification after checking the model and serial number.
The affected models are DCU9330W, DCU9330R, DCU8230, TKF8439A, and DSC85W.
If you are concerned that you have one of these models then please visit the Beko website www.beko.co.uk or the Blomberg repair site www.blomberguk.com - and enter the model number into the online product checker, or call 0800 917 2018.
The alert from Beko said: "As part of our ongoing monitoring we have identified a batch issue with a third party supplied component which in rare circumstances could fail and overheat, which could lead to a risk of fire."
Stuart Millington, Senior Fire Safety Manager, said: “We are asking the public to check their appliances immediately and if they have one of the recalled models to contact Beko or Blomberg. In the meantime they should stop using the appliance if they find out that is one of the recalled models.”
