To avoid any potential hazard, owners of an affected appliance should turn off the gas supply to the appliance immediately and not use it until the connection fitting has been replaced.

BSH is offering every owner of an affected appliance a FREE replacement of the gas connector by an authorised service engineer at the owner’s home. BSH requests all customers of a product listed above to check whether their appliance is affected by this safety campaign.
