Samsung Fridge Freezer Recall

The manufacturer has issued the following notice:

Samsung Electronics have announced a programme to visit the homes of customers in the UK and Ireland to resolve an issue that is potentially related to certain now-discontinued RS21 and RS60 range of fridge freezers, manufactured between March 2005 and June 2006.

Samsung Electronics has decided to take this action following investigations into a possible deject in the assembly of the models’ defrost system.

In very rare cases, there is possibility of internal sparking to occur which may pose a potential fire risk, in even fewer cases, it may lead to a potential safety issue or structural damage to the appliance.

Although the possibility of this occuring is very low, for the safety of consumers, Samsung has decided to undertake a free in-home inspection and repair programme for all affected fridge freezers.  As a precautionary measure, Samsung will also include the following fridge freezers with a similar defrost system as a part of the programme.

The extended models include RS21 and RS60 (outside of the above dates of manufacturer), SN62, RSE8, RSH1 and RSJ1.
