Everything you need to know
Should you require the model number of your appliance for identification purposes, for example, when looking for spares and accessories on this website or when organising a repair; In the first instance always refer to the manufacturer's instruction manual which would have been included with the product at point of purchase. In a lot of cases information found here is all that will be required. For those manufacturers that do use specific model/serial numbers, these are usually found on stickers or rating plates found in less visible areas of the product.
We would urge all our customers to only search their appliance for this rating plate as a last resort especially when dealing with appliances which are hard wired into the gas, electricity or water supply as there is the potential for fatal injury or irreparable damage to your appliance and or immediate surroundings. If you are unsure whether to locate this information yourself, seek advice from the manufacturer or a qualified engineer, if the appliance uses a gas supply consult a Gas Safe registered engineer.
