Grenfell House Fire – Reportedly started by Hotpoint Fridge Freezer
This must be the worst known case of an appliance causing a fire……
Below is the advice as posted on the BBC News site.
Anyone who has a white Hotpoint fridge freezer model number FF175BP or graphite fridge freezer model number FF175BG should register their appliance with the manufacturer to receive any updates.
Generally, the model number is found on a bar code on a sticker behind the salad container in the fridge.
These models were manufactured between March 2006 and July 2009. About 64,000 were sold but it is not known how many are still in use.
Owners should ring 0800 316 3826 or visit the Hotpoint website.
Fires connected to fridge freezers and other electrical appliances are relatively common.
More general advice on registering an appliance, should there be a recall, and other safety tips are available online on charity Electrical Safety First’s page.
