Popular coffee machines recalled over fire fears

Luxe appliance brand Miele has voluntarily recalled two of their popular coffee machines over potential fire risks.

The recall involves coffee machine models CVA 3650 and CVA 3660.

“As part of Miele’s commitment to quality, we regularly carry out testing of appliances to ensure that they always meet Miele’s strict quality guidelines,” Miele said in a statement to myGC.

“From this testing we have become aware that under extreme circumstances an internal power connection in this coffee machine model could become defective.”

“If the internal power connection becomes defective, this could damage the coffee machine and create a fire risk,” the recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website reads.

Miele said the affected model is not part of the current coffee machine range and has not been sold in Australia since 2013.

“We have proactively contacted owners by mail and are now phoning them to arrange a free repair visit,” Miele said.

“Consumers may also contact Miele by phoning 1800 332 542 to arrange this appointment.”

Correction: We initially stated that this recall was initiated by Energy Safe Victoria, however this is not correct. This was a voluntary recall by Miele and the company has proactively contacted owners.
