Have you registered your household appliances?

25 January 2023

This week (23-27 January) is ‘Register My Appliance’ week. The scheme, run by AMDEA, allows you to register to be contacted by your manufacturer if any safety issues arise with your appliances and often receive free product safety repairs.

It’s quick and easy to register your appliances. Doing so will help to ensure your home is kept safe, meaning of course that you and your family are kept safe too. The scheme is a free service that can be used for both new and old household appliances. It could actually save money, making you eligible for an extended warranty or guarantee period. 

What can I register? 

Both old and new appliances can be registered, even if you bought a second-hand appliance. 

Some examples of appliances that can be registered include: Register-My-Appliance

  • Hoover 
  • Coffee machine 
  • Freezer 
  • Fridge 
  • Cooker 
  • Dishwasher 
  • Plus many more 

Why register? 

 When you register your appliance, the manufacturer will be able to get in touch with you directly if there is a fault or recall on your appliance.  As well as reducing the risk of fires or accidents with faulty appliances you may also have the opportunity to have your appliance repaired for free or a free replacement offered. 

How do I register my appliances? 

To register your household appliances and stay informed of important safety repairs and product recalls, you’ll need the following information: 

  1. Product brand name 
  2. Model of your product (this may be a name or number) 
  3. Serial number (this is usually between 10 and 16 digits long and appears on a plate on the appliance) 
  4. Purchase date (if you don’t remember exactly when you purchased your product, then you can just use an approximate day, month and year) 

Further information 

Visit the Register My Appliance website for more information, and remember to tell your family and friends to get registering too.  

Register my Appliance is part of AMDEA’s (Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances) safety initiative, designed to make it easier for people to register all of their domestic appliances.  

The campaign is supported by the Home Office and the National Fire Chiefs Council as well as many other organisations who are keen to reduce the risk from fires started by faulty appliances. 

If you have any concerns about the safety of any appliances in your home you should: 

  1. Stop using it immediately 
  2. Disconnect it from the mains 
  3. Contact the manufacturer
