The Council works closely with the Health & Safety Executive to ensure that all relevant information is available to its ratepayers.
New information has been provided relating to GDHA and BEKO gas cooker appliances.
Using the grill on specified makes and models of Beko, Belling, Flavel, Leisure and New World gas cookers, with the grill door closed, can produce extremely dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, which can cause serious injury or death.
21 cooker models have been identified as being affected but, despite earlier warnings about the dangers and extensive efforts by the manufacturers to contact customers that have bought these cookers, relatively few have been located to date.
We're urging all consumers with gas cookers, including landlords and letting agents, to check if their cooker is one of the makes and models affected. If so, they should contact the relevant manufacturer helpline numbers to arrange for it to be modified free of charge. Under no circumstances should anyone operate the grill with the grill door closed – it must always be in the open position. It is also essential that people do not use the cookers as heaters or for any other purpose than cooking.
The following makes and models are affected:
