It has emerged that certain Beko fridge freezer models manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006 have a fault which can cause the defrost timer to fail, overheat, and catch fire.

The defect lies with a faulty defrost timer and, in a limited number of incidents, condensation can gather around the defrost timer area, a component located at the rear of the appliance. This may allow water to seep into the timer, which can occasionally cause the component to fail and overheat, causing a fridge freezer fire.

How to check if your Beko fridge freezer is affected

Affected Beko fridge freezer model numbers:

  • CA 5411 FFS/FFW/FFX

  • CDA 543 FS/FW/FX

The Beko frost-free fridge freezer models affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. All affected faulty Beko fridge freezer’s serial number will begin with either 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, or 06.

 

You can find the model number and serial number on a label inside the fridge. Beko is making a free of charge modification to all affected models, this modification takes approximately 30 minutes.

If you own an affected product or you’re unsure if your product is affected, call the Beko freephone number on 0800 009 4837 between 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday. Beko will arrange to visit your home and make the modification to the product completely free of charge.

All affected Glotech customers have already been contacted.

The technical stuff

Beko have released a kit which prevents these machines from catching fire.

 

The kit includes:

  • Outer Timer box assembly
  • electronic timer board box (instead of mechanical timer)
  • 2 pcs screw
  • 170mmx80mm aluminium foil

 

As you can see from these images the result is an improved timer defrost and cover and a better insulated capacitor.
