Remember to Register Your Appliances

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service is supporting the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliance’s (AMDEA) campaign this week to remind people to register their appliances with the manufacturer, be they small or large, bought, second-hand or inherited.

AMDEA’s Register My Appliance portal provides a quick and easy remedy, offering online access to more than 70 leading brands, with most accepting registration of both new and older appliances. Many accept registration of products at least 12 years old and no proof of purchase is needed.

While recalls on home appliances are rare, issues with the equipment can develop over time and a simple, free in-home adjustment by a qualified engineer can ensure a longer and safer life for machines.

Paul Scott, Prevention Manager, said: “As we all want our appliances to last longer and work safely, it makes sense to register all appliances – large and small.

“Registering your appliances means the manufacturer knows where to find it in case of a safety repair or recall. It’s free to register appliances on AMDEA’s website.”

To reduce the risk of a fire breaking out, keep appliances clean and in good working order. Also, remember to avoid overloading sockets and routinely check for signs of dangerous or loose wiring.
