Home Appliance Recalls (08.09.2017)

Appliance Recall Database

Following the recent fire in London, it has become an issue that some kitchen appliances are recalled but as purchasers do not register them, they are not made aware of any recall. Now there is a way to register your appliance and then be made aware if there is a recall notice placed on it.

The IRPM recently sent out the following information, with a link to the register at the end:

“To help ensure products and appliances remain safe, the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA), a not for profit organisation set up Register My Appliance (RMA) as a not‐for‐profit safety initiative. Nationally, less than half of adults (43 per cent) register their appliances with a manufacturer. To encourage more people to register, the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA) created Register My Appliance which provides access to the registration pages of over 60 leading brands of domestic appliances. Register My Appliance is an easy to navigate online portal where landlords, their agents or their tenants can register their appliances so they are kept informed should there be any product recalls or safety notices. In addition to the registration section, the Register My Appliance website includes other valuable features including a safety repair and recall listings, hints for household safety, tips for appliance care, explanations of product testing and standards, guarantees and warranties and the AMDEA members’ code of practice on product safety.”
