This is an important announcement to owners of Zanussi Z30 and Z50 dishwashers.

We have previously advertised that some of our Z30 and Z50 model dishwashers needed a safety check to eliminate the risk of overheating.

We asked owners of such models to contact us so that we could arrange an inspection and free safety conversion if necessary. Many did so and are still safely using their dishwashers.

If you have a Z30 or Z50 dishwasher which has not had its safety check please help us to help you avoid further unnecessary risks by acting on this notice now.

1. Check the model number. This is on the front control panel as shown in the illustration. If it is not clear check in the user book. Is it a Z30 or Z50? If it isn't, this notice does not concern you and you may continue to use your dishwasher as normal. If it is tick the appropriate box on the coupon and:-

2. Check the identification numbers. These can be found on the silver label on the back of the dishwasher at the base.

3. Copy the numbers that you find there that are prefixed Mod. D..... and F.Nr..... on the illustration of the label on the coupon against the same prefix letters.

4. If the number you have put in the area which is shaded on the coupon falls between 821200 and 840800, your dishwasher needs are safety check and you must fill in the rest of the coupon as described in the following paragraphs.

5. If the number does not fall within this range, you may discard this coupon and continue to use your dishwasher as usual. Thank you for your co-operation.

6. If the number you have printed in the F.Nr......box falls within the safety check range, add details of your name, address and, very important, your postcode, together with your daytime telephone number.

7. Cut along the dotted line and put the coupon in an envelope. Seal it and post it to us right away to the address shown below. No stamp is needed.
8. If your dishwasher is one that we need to check, it should not be left unattended whilst switched on, or left to operate overnight until our engineer has visited you. It should also be UNPLUGGED or switched OFF when not in use, as we suggest in your instruction book.
