Hi ,i have just heard on the news that some beco fridge freezers have been catching fire.it also said if you think there may be a problem to contact the web site.i have a beco fridge freezer and it is...


I would normally give a pointer to articles I have already posted this response on, but as this is such a potentially serious matter, I have posted my entire response here for you.

According to several sources I have checked, including the London METRO magazine ( http://www.metro.co.uk/news/868330-beko-fridge-freezers-fire-risk-warning-issued-to-homeowners-amid-recall ) The MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:
CDA543FX
CA5411FFS
CDA752FS
CDA645FW
CA5411FFW
CDA752FW
CDA647FS
CA5411FFX
CDA752FX
CDA647FW
CA7014FFX
CS460FF

CDA539FX
CSB4606FFS
CDA751FS
CDA543FS
CSB4606FFSD
CDA751FX
CDA543FW
CSB4606FFW


From what I can ascertain, the fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006 (So, after shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probably extend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008)

If you go to the BEKO website, there is a link to check your serial number:

https://refsafety.beko.co.uk/

I have to say. Regardless of dates and matching serial numbers, if I had an affected model, I would be checking with BEKO anyway!!

(And by the way I DO have a BEKO fridge freezer and I will be checking it out when I get home!!)

Advertised on the TV Today that there is a fault on about 20 Beco Fridge Freezer Modles, made between 2002 - 2007, We have a Fridge Freezer Model CDA 563 F, is this one of the Modles concerned

My whirpool 6th sense american fridge freezer has stoped making ice? The water is still live, th eonly problem appears to be the level control arm which is in the up position and want move?


Be very careful, when the ice maker malfunctions, many things can be the culprit. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Water and ice build up in the fridge(lower section) of the (ET1MTKXKQ) Top Freezer model. Leakage coming from the bottom of the vent.


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning unit, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled.

Maytag Fridge MTB2156GEW Won't cool. Change thermostat today and ran it for four hours. Frige was warm after. There is a clicking noise every 2 to 5 minutes from the back of the fridge. I think it is


Yes you have a bad relay on your compressor.Remove the rear panel and take off the relay on the compressor shake it.If it sounds fried then you need to order new on .Just give your model# to your local parts depot and ask them to order you a new compressor relay hope i fixya:)

Water leaking from bottom of freezer door, and ice buildup on bottom of freezer


The defrost drain line in the freezer has frozen closed. Turn off the fridge. Remove the freezer bins. Use a hair dryer to thaw the drain hole on the bottom rear shelf of the freezer.

P.S. Your fridge is on recall from Maytag for a defective start relay.

REF AND FREEZER STOP COOLING


We had a repairman come out, said it was the compressor, bad news...$650 if he repaired...good news...compressor under manufacturer's warranty for five years so you may want to call Maytag. It will be less expensive if the part is covered and you only have to pay for labor. Hope this helps. Bought our fridge 12/2004 so it was covered.
