If they can’t they’ll give you a fault reference number. They can often resolve issues quickly without the need for further action. You can find the manufacturer contact details here.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment.
The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Much of the UK's WEEE ends up in landfill, where the lead and other toxins it contains can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a harmful effect on natural habitat, wildlife and also human health.
Many electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save our natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
As a Producer under the UK WEEE Regulations, we comply with its Producer Obligations by being registered as a Member of the WEEECare Compliance Scheme and obtaining the WEEE Producer Registration Number – WEE/FB5353ZX
Distributors of new Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) have a part to play in reducing the amount of WEEE going into landfill sites. We are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when you buy from us a new Electrical or Electronic product.
For example, if a customer bought a new appliance from us we would accept their old appliance back and prevent it going into a landfill site by disposing of it safely. The recycling/disposal service is offered free of charge. Customers must return their WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Alternatively we offer a collection service charged at £19.98 (inc VAT) - this service must be requested at the time of ordering your new appliance. Any appliances that we are collecting should be disconnected and ready for collection at the time the new appliance is delivered. NB We can only remove old refrigerated appliances if they have been fully defrosted.
Alternatively, there is a network of recycling centres across the UK where consumers and end users of WEEE can also take WEEE free of charge to be discarded, reused and/or recycled. The complete list of locations can be found at: www.recyclenow.com
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown below:
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
Recycling is one way we help the environment. We dispose of used batteries separately from other waste, using our takeback, collection and recycling facilities. We have a collection point at each of our premises that supply batteries for small electrical items. We keep a comprehensive record of our batteries' collection, recovery, and new life. We carefully manage where our batteries go, using a well-established partner Ecobat to control the collection of end-of-life batteries.
