Bosch Home Appliances have announced a voluntary repair action across the Republic of Ireland on a limited number of Bosch dishwashers manufactured between 1999 – 2005. The affected dishwashers can, in rare occasions, pose a small risk of fire due to a fault in the control panel. Therefore, Bosch Home Appliances has initiated this voluntary action as a precaution as we are committed to upholding the highest standards of quality craftsmanship and reliability in all of our brands.
Brian McMenamin, Director - Ireland, BSH Home Appliances “Although these dishwashers are between 8 – 14 years old it’s important for consumers to check their dishwashers and register their information with us so we can arrange a free of charge repair. We have put in place a dedicated website where customers can check if they have an affected model and book a free in home repair by a certified engineer – www.repairaction.ie. Alternatively customers can call us on a Freephone number 1 800 322 222 to register their details with us.”
The fault within the control panel is a single solder point which when subjected to permanent, sustained voltage peaks can overheat and in rare cases, cause a potential for fire. The repair action will allow customers to check if they have an affected model of Bosch dishwasher, register their details and arrange an engineer visit at a convenient time for the repair to be carried out free of charge.
BSH is the manufacturer of Bosch, Siemens and Neff home appliances and would like to reassure customers that although we believe the risk is small, any customer who bought a Bosch dishwasher before 2006 should call Freephone 1 800 322 222 to check if they have an affected model.
