Re: BEKO fridge-freezers - fire danger

Beko doesn't seem to come out of this very well.  These faults seem to have been known about for a very long time, and the company chose not to make them public..  Production from 2000, and serious fire issues since 2008.  Three years seems a long time to organise a recall. Undecided

Checked our Beko fridge freezer and we appear to be safe. It's 2007 model and only fridge is frost free.
I checked using model number on Trading Standards site.
