Older Beko, Flavel and Leisure models could be affected by a fault that leads to a potentially fatal build-up of carbon monoxide

The Boat Safety Scheme has lent its support to Beko in an ongoing campaign to find faulty gas cookers that can produce potentially fatal levels of carbon monoxide.

The models in question are part of the Beko, Flavel and Leisure gas cooker ranges, and have a serial number starting in 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 or 08, and a separate oven and grill.

These cookers can produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide when used with the grill door closed.

Beko’s instructions warn users not to close the grill door when the cooker is in use, but nonetheless the company is keen to track down all of these old models.

Affected cookers will be modified, free of charge, to correct the fault and stop the build-up of carbon monoxide.

Anyone who thinks their boat may be fitted with a faulty model are encouraged to read the Beko Cooker Safety Notice online and then call 0800 9172018.
