Candy has warned that certain combined dishwasher, oven and hob appliances in its Trio range may pose a fire risk.
In an official safety warning the company says: ‘Although the risk is very small, we have become aware and are concerned that an extremely low probability exists of overheating of a wiring harness which could, in rare cases, result in fire’.
The company says the fire risk is limited only to models produced between 2 May 2005 and 30 March 2008.
What to do if you have a Candy Trio appliance
Candy is asking owners of Trio appliances to check their model serial number – found on the inner top edge of the dishwasher door or on the back of the appliance – against a list of affected models on its website.
If your appliance is one of the models listed you should not use it unattended until it has been inspected by a Candy service engineer.
