The model number can be found on the underside of the heel of the iron, where you will find a rectangular shaped label which contains a five digit code.

If you have one of the steam irons listed, you will also need to check the second five digit code.
If the last two digits of 'Code 2' are 12 and the first three digits are between 045 and 365, you have an affected iron. If the last two digits of 'Code 2' are 13 and the first three digits are between 001 and 195, you have an affected iron.
Anyone who owns an affected iron is being advised to stop using it immediately and to contact Russell Hobbs on Freephone 0800 307 7616 or 0333 103 9663 from a mobile, who will advise you of how to return your iron for a replacement or full refund of the purchase price.
No other Russell Hobbs steam irons are affected by this recall.
In the lab we look at how well the iron smoothes out creases, how the soleplate glides over crumpled laundry, how it deals with limescale and how easy it is to use.
