What are the defects?
A manufacturing fault has been identified, which affects the supply wire to the fan located inside the fridge. In some fridges this supply wire is accessible and is insulated only with basic insulation instead of double insulation.
What are the hazards?
In fridges where the supply wire to the fan is accessible and has not been double insulated, there is a risk that, if the insulation on the supply wire is cut, is torn or (in the longer term) wears out, the wires will be exposed. This will pose a risk of electric shock to a person who comes into contact with the wires.
What should consumers do?
Turn off the fridge, unplug it, and call Lion Nathan Australia Pty Ltd on 1800 462 022 between 8:30am and 5:00pm (7 days a week) to arrange collection. Consumers are NOT to attempt to move the fridge themselves. Following collection, consumers will be provided with an alternative prize of equivalent retail value.
