Neff dishwashers recalled over fire fears

Specified models of Neff branded dishwashers have been recalled over fears they may pose a potential fire risk.

In a recall notice posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, home appliance distribution company BSH says certain models could be flawed.

“BSH believes that the affected model dishwashers may potentially develop cracks in the printed circuit board within their control module.”


“During the operating cycle when water is being heated, cracks may potentially lead to melting of soldering material or, in an unlikely event, ignition of a fire in the dishwasher.”

The recalled Neff dishwashers with model numbers S44M55N0EU/35, S44M55N0EU/56, S44E33N1EU/35 and S44E33N1EU/49, were sold at various retailers nationwide between 1 January 200531 December 2005.
