Fire risk prompts Candy appliance recallTrio combined hob, oven and dishwashers affected

Candy Trio combination oven and dishwasher

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 Candy Trio is a hob, and dishwasher in one - we reported on it back in July 2009.

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.

Our dishwasher, built-in oven and freestanding cooker reviews include the latest lab test results to help you find the best kitchen appliances on the market.
