Manufacturers occasionally recall products with potential safety problems.
Register your appliances to receive automatic notifications if one is subject to a product recall.
Fire investigators across the UK work hard to find out the causes and our Black Museum brings together some of these cases.
Professional, personal or commercial, why not share your experience on the Black Museum.
