Question about Freezers
From what I understand, you are safe if your serial number does not match the ones in the list exactly. That said, the information I have is from knowledgeable sources but NOT from BEKO, who have failed to answer their 0800 incident line or reply to my mails for 4 days now (By coincidence, while I provide a lot of technical help on this forum, I also have a BEKO fridge that IS on the list).

I would go to their site and send in a mail via the facility they offer there. I imagine that at some stage you will get a confirmation that all is OK with your fridge, but I would want to cover the bases if I was in your position. For convenience, the original article I wrote with the BEKO website listed in it is reproduced here for you:
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 most importantly, BEKO's own website, the MODEL numbers (not serial numbers) affected by the recall are as follows:
The fridges affected were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006. After shipping and sitting around in shops, you can probably extend that margin to machines SOLD between 2000 and 2008. The first 2 digits of the serial numbers indicate the year of manufacture, so if your serial number doesn't start 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 or 06 you don't even need to check.
If you go to the BEKO website, there is a link to check your serial number:
The site also provides a mail address and a UK Freefone number that you can call (Though I've tried the number and it keeps cutting me off!! I presume they are swamped with calls)
