Tumble dryer fire risk

A potential fire risk with tumble dryers manufactured between April 2004 and September 2015 has been identified.   The affected brands are:
  • Hotpoint
  • Indesit
  • Creda

The fire risk is due to excess fluff which can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.
If you have a tumble dryer, please check your tumble dryer to see if it has been recalled.
If you believe you have an affected tumble dryer please stop using it immediately and visit this website to find out if your tumble dryer is affected:
