We are offering installation on cooking products and American Fridge Freezers only. We’re taking a sensible approach to the evolving situation with Coronavirus by following all Government advice to make sure we can continue to serve our customers and protect our people. As such, all other installation services are temporarily suspended.
If you’ve already booked installation on any other item, this cost will be refunded. If you need to make any changes to your order you can go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 to talk to one of the AO team who’ll be happy to help you.
If you’re self-isolating because of illness or Coronavirus/Covid-19 symptoms, and you’ve booked an installation for a cooking product or American Fridge Freezer - we won’t be able to enter your home to carry out the installation. We will need to leave the item on your doorstep. The cost of your installation will be refunded.
If you need to rebook your delivery, go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 to talk to one of the AO team who’ll be happy to help you.
We’re doing the best we can during these extraordinary times. All deliveries will now be made to the main entrance of your home. If you have a shared entrance – if you live in an apartment block, for example – this means we’ll bring it to your apartment, not just the front entrance of the building.
Here’s some of our most recent customer feedback:
“Your delivery personnel were superb considering the restraints that they're working under delivered on time happy what more could you ask for when you consider the pressure that they are working under thank you.”
“Excellent service in very difficult times - my elderly father is vulnerable to Corona virus due to his age but his fridge broke down and this added addition stress. This company delivered the next day, took the old application away for a small extra fee. They helped my father plug it in and even gave how basic instructions how to use the appliance, extremely happy with this service thank you”
“The drivers were unbelievable - courteous, professional, expressed sympathy for the way things were and that they were not able to bring our new appliance all the way to the kitchen, wished us well and when we thanked them, said "well you must have your new appliance".”
“Excellent delivery. Very efficient. The delivery men carried out the job exactly as required - especially in the present circumstances. They unpacked the item, removed packing and placed it in the garage, exactly as requested in a note we left on the gate. All carried out without any interpersonal contact. We are very pleased indeed.”
“I have a broken leg so had prepared as best I could. Having opened the door and moved back 2mtrs+ they kindly lent in without entering my property and left it on the floor as I'm on crutches and can't carry. Super polite, super helpful and can't thank you enough!!! They didn't break protocol but made sure it wasn't left outside 5*”
“In these very difficult times the delivery men were outstanding.. they were bright and cheerful and extremely helpful.. I was so grateful they were delivering still as I am a nurse and my priority is I need to wash my uniforms to continue working.....to the men that delivered it..thank you so so much....”
“Delivery driver was great. He apologised for not being able to fit the dishwasher. We already understood why it couldn’t be done but it was nice to have the personal approach, not just an email. Always found your service to be excellent”
All deliveries will now be made to behind the main entrance of your home. If you have a shared entrance – if you live in an apartment block, for example – this means we’ll bring it into your apartment, not just the front entrance to the building.
The only exceptions to this will be American Fridge Freezers or any cooking products that include an installation service - which we will continue to deliver to the room of your choice.
If you have a recycling collection booked, you’ll need to bring your item to your door ready for us to collect otherwise we won’t be able to remove it.
If you’re self-isolating because of illness or Coronavirus/Covid-19 symptoms, and have booked an installation for a cooking product or American Fridge Freezer, we won’t be able to enter your home to carry out the installation. We will need to leave the item on your doorstep. The cost of your installation will be refunded.
We’re taking a sensible approach to the evolving situation with Coronavirus by following all Government advice to make sure we can continue to serve our customers and protect our people. When we deliver, we ask that you distance yourself from our drivers by waiting in another room while they carry out the delivery. This helps to reduce the risk of spreading the virus to others.
If you’d prefer to rebook your delivery, go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 to talk to one of the AO team who’ll be happy to help you.
Our drivers are following all Government advice. As such, your driver will call you ahead of arriving at your property to double-check if you’re isolating or not. On arrival, your driver will ensure they keep a 2 metre distance from your door and will ask you to wait in another room whilst they deliver your product. Our drivers will be wearing gloves and are washing their hands regularly.
If a driver asks to wash their hands in your home we would appreciate if you could help them out. There’s currently a nationwide shortage of hand sanitiser but we are working hard to source stock and provide our drivers with this. In the meantime, hand washing is the best advice.
On occasion we do use third party delivery people who have ensured us they are following all Government guidance.
Keeping our people and customers healthy and safe is a top priority, so there may be an occasion where a driver doesn’t feel comfortable coming into your home. If this does happen, you can agree to a doorstep delivery or rebook the delivery through our customer service team. If you had an installation booked and it isn’t installed, we will refund you in full.
You should rebook your delivery through My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 and talk to one of our team. You might decide to re-arrange your delivery or we can deliver to your doorstep, but we won’t be able to offer the full range of services, including installation. See below if you are self-isolating.
Sorry to hear you’re feeling unwell. We can still deliver, but we’ll need to take a number of precautions as if you’re self-isolating - please see below. However, you might want to think about arranging your delivery for a few weeks’ time when you are feeling better. That way we can give you the full AO service.
Sorry to hear you’ve had to self-isolate. We can still deliver but we will need to take a number of precautions.
We’re sorry that you have a fault with your product. We’re taking a sensible approach to the evolving situation with Coronavirus by following all Government advice to make sure we can continue to serve our customers and protect our people. If it appears that your product has developed a fault, following the recent government advice, we won’t be able to enter your house to uninstall or collect your product. If you urgently require a replacement, please place a new order and we can deliver this to your doorstep. When you are out of isolation you can call us to make arrangements to collect the faulty item that you wish to return.
Following the recent government advice, we won’t be able to enter your house. If you are not displaying any symptoms of Coronavirus we will collect your product providing it is ready to collect by the entrance to your property.
If you are in self isolation due to yourself or a member of your household displaying symptoms we will be unable to collect the product. You have 100 days in which to return the product so we would ask you to hang on for a bit until you are no longer at-risk and out of isolation.

We’ll continue to deliver as long as we can do so safely. We are seeing unprecedented demand for some products (freezers, for example) which has led to some challenges with availability. However we will continue to work with our suppliers to offer the best possible range. We will only list for delivery any products that we have in stock in our own warehouse, or are in stock with our suppliers.
Your order will remain unchanged, unless you have booked an installation or unpacking service. Unfortunately, we have suspended all installation and unpacking services – except installation of cooking products and American Fridge Freezers. If you’ve booked an installation or unpack that we can’t do, we’ll refund the cost of this.
We’re taking a sensible approach to the evolving situation with Coronavirus by following all Government advice to make sure we can continue to serve our customers and protect our people.
Whilst your order won’t change – bar installation – the delivery of your product will.
All deliveries will now be made to behind the main entrance of your home. If you have a shared entrance – such as if you live in an apartment block – this means we’ll bring it into your apartment, not just the front entrance to the building.

It would be dangerous to expect an unqualified person to fit a cooker; we will also continue to deliver and install American Fridge Freezers because these are too heavy and complicated for one person to manage themselves.
As such, these are the only installation services we are offering at the moment.
Yes – but you will need to bring your product to the entrance of your home and remain in another room whilst we collect your item.
Yes – if you need to rebook or amend your order go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 to talk to one of the AO team who’ll be happy to help you.
Our driver will call you ahead of your delivery to check to see if you’re self-isolating. If you’re physically unable to move your product from the entrance of your home, your driver will try to help. Our drivers will do their best to do what is right and appropriate under the circumstances. In these instances, your driver will continue to follow guidance on social distancing and hygiene to minimise any risk.
Yes – to amend or cancel your order go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 and talk to one of our team.
Yes, as it stands we are still offering Click + Collect services. A lot of the Collect+ locations are stores that will remain open, such as newsagents and pharmacies. We’re working with Collect+ to ensure that only open stores are available for you to select when you place your order, but you should double check that the store hasn’t closed temporarily.
Yes – we can still recycle your old appliances – the only exception is in Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, due to restrictions with our delivery partners in Northern Ireland – we can’t offer recycling at this time.
For all other areas, if you have a recycling collection booked, you will need to bring your item to your door ready for us to collect, otherwise we won’t be able to remove it.
Yes – barring American Fridge Freezers or large Range Cookers. All deliveries will be to the front of the property or garage – we are unable to deliver to the room of your choice at this time. If you’ve already placed an order – we will still be able to honour delivery but we are not able to offer recycling services. If for any reason, we need to change your delivery date – we will contact you directly. If you need to make changes or cancel your order, you can go to My Account or contact us on 0161 470 1200 to talk to one of the AO team who’ll be happy to help you.

It's important to note that the item dimensions don't include any protruding features such as controls and handles etc. Item dimensions represent the casing of the item only. Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, all sizes, weights and measurements quoted on the website are approximate.
Images of the items shown on our website are for illustrative purposes only. We've made every effort to display all item colours accurately. However we can't guarantee that all the images displayed on your device will accurately reflect the true colour of the item delivered to you. Please be aware that colours may differ between manufacturers.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that item specifications are correct on the website, due to continual item development through research & design, specifications may change without notice.
Item availability dates are displayed on the website for you to select a day that best suits you. You'll then either receive a confirmation email, or, a member of our team will contact you within 48 hours to agree a convenient delivery day and confirm that the stock is available.
If you're not happy with your product, just let us know within 100 days of delivery and you can return it for free. Your refund will be made within 14 days of collection from your home, or from the day you dropped your product off at a store, and it will include the cost of delivery. It's important you don’t use or install your product. If you do, we'll have to deduct up to 50% of its value from your refund, as we cannot resell it as a new item. We're happy for you to unpack the product and inspect it properly. We'll refund you in full for items which haven't been used, as long as you let us know you want to return it within 100 days of delivery. Please note, software cannot be returned. If you're returning a bladed gardening item, it'll need to be boxed before it can be returned to us. Batteries from any used returns will need to be disconnected. For more information on this, please visit our Ts&Cs.
If you think your product may be faulty, we’ll do our best to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

If the product is faulty, we’ll offer you a resolution in accordance with your legal rights. For more information on this, please visit our Ts&Cs.
The manufacturers will supply a warranty in addition to your rights under the Sales of Goods Act.

You may need to register to qualify for these promotions – please check with one of our team.
Please also note that our warranties only cover domestic use; items for use in commercial properties might not be covered.

Yes, if it's a discount code that you've seen on our website. Please let our friendly customer advisors know that you have seen a discount code so that they can add this to your basket. If it is a unique discount code that you've received via an email, then it will need to be redeemed online as it isn’t valid for orders placed over the phone.

We want your delivery to go as smoothly as possible, which means that we need a helping hand from you on the day. You might want to plan how your driver will access your property, and how your new appliance will get to its new home in your house. It’s a good idea to move your car off your drive, furniture that could get in the way, or even take pictures down that could get damaged during delivery. If we’re disposing of an item for you, make sure that it’s ready for us to take.
Last but not least, make sure you keep an ear out for phone calls or knocks at the door. It could be your delivery!

Occasionally we may experience delivery restrictions in your area beyond our control. For example, bad weather closing roads. We'll always try our best to deliver and if we think your order may be affected, we'll block out those dates in your delivery calendar.
If you’re in a real hurry to get your product, we offer a swift Next Day service.

However, it’s important to remember that this option isn't available if you've paid for a cooking product to be connected. This service isn't available on selected TV & entertainment, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY products either, but if you choose Express Delivery, your order will be with you before midday the following day.

We will send you tracking information by SMS and email when the order is with the courier, and an ETA timeslot on the morning of delivery. When you get your tracking information you can also use DPD Precise to choose a convenient day for delivery, and you can even narrow it down to a one hour time slot. So there’s no need to wait in all day. If you've selected Express Delivery, you'll still get your order before midday if you don't respond to the automated DPD Precise text offering you a 1 hour timeslot. However if things have changed and you won’t be in at that time, you can still use this service to pick a new delivery slot for later in the day.
You can use DPD's in-flight options which allow you to change the delivery date. If you've chosen the standard delivery method, we will let you know the exact day of delivery by email and text message the night before delivery.

You can call your driver on 01204 672680. If you don’t get an answer straight away, please be patient. Our drivers are busy people and have lots of customers to visit. If your order is being delivered by DPD, you won't be able to call your driver, but you can speak to DPD directly.
That’s because we’ve gone green here at AO. Your invoice will be emailed to you within 72 hours of your delivery being made.
We’re happy they made you happy! Head over to ao.com and leave us a review, or send us some nice words via Facebook or Twitter.
Oops! We all make mistakes sometimes. Give us a call on 0161 470 1200 and we’ll swap your product for something else. If you think you’re going to return an item, it’s important that you don’t use or install it as you may not receive a full refund. On selected TV & entertainment, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY products, you can refuse delivery of your order and it will be returned to us.
You can keep an eye on your delivery on our track your order page. If your item is showing as delivered but you don't think it has been, please give us a call.
We won't let a bit of rain or snow get in our way, so we'll always try and deliver your products whatever the weather. If your driver is delayed for any reason or needs to reschedule the delivery, don't worry, you'll be the first to know.
Don’t panic, we’re here to help. Give us a call between 8am-7pm, Mon-Fri or 8am-6pm, Sat-Sun and we’ll do our best to sort it for you. If your item isn’t working properly, the manufacturer is often the best person to help. If this is the case, we’ll pass you over to them.
Handy hint: Keep a note of your serial number before your appliance is installed. This makes it easier for you to claim any promotions back, or to get help if there’s a problem.
Yes. Our delivery team engineers have been through the most intensive of training courses, and are all Gas Safe registered and skilled in electrical connections. Your safety is our priority, so we've made sure they know exactly what they're doing.
We connect all freestanding cookers, built in ovens and hobs. However some induction hobs can be trickier to connect due to the wiring required, and we will only be able to identify a problem like this when we arrive. If this happens, you may need an electrician to amend your wiring. We also install integrated fridge freezers. Unfortunately, this service is not available in Northern Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isles of Scilly.
This depends on what appliance you’d like us to install. For example, cooking appliances that require engineers to visit your home will cost a little more than setting up your TV. We’ll display installation prices for your items in the basket.
Yes, that's no problem. Our engineers can disconnect your old item for you when we arrive, as long as you have selected our installation service.
No, we won't be able to disconnect a gas or electric cooker if you haven't selected our installation service. You would need to make sure the item is disconnected before we arrive to connect.
As you can probably imagine, and for your safety, there is a lot of legislation around connecting cookers, so there are things that we need you to check before we arrive. We've come up with a handy guide and all the information is on our installation page.
LPG stands for "Liquid Petroleum Gas". This is usually supplied in cylinders and is common in remote areas that don't have a mains natural gas supply.
You'll need to check within the item specification on our website to see if it can be converted, or by speaking to one of our team.
The "Hot Zone" is the area between your cooker or hob and anything above it. This area needs to be clear of any flammable materials, such as wallpaper, cupboards or shelves and plug sockets. If we arrive, and the hot zone isn't clear, we wouldn't be able to complete your installation. To see exactly what a "Hot Zone" looks like, and for details on the required gap, click here.
Connection is subject to availability and postcode restrictions may apply. We will send your item out with our specialist installation team, so they can deliver, connect and have you cooking away in no time!
Every installation is different, so it's difficult to say. Generally we ask you to allow at least 45 minutes per installation. Our guys are true professionals, and do this every day, so they will work as quickly and safely as possible.
If there is a problem with installation, don't worry. Give us a call and if it's something that can be easily rectified, we can advise you on how to do this and rearrange your connection for another time. In some cases, this may not be possible, so if this happens, or if you would prefer a refund, we'll sort that for you.
Sorry, but our installation service is only available at the point of delivery, and can't be purchased separately.
The installation service is subject to engineer availability in your area. When you select the service and enter your postcode at the checkout, the calendar will display the next date available for your installation. Pre-selected timeslots aren't available with our premium installation service. However, you will be allocated a timeslot and we'll notify you at 7am on the day of delivery.
As long as your worktop is made of wood, this won't be a problem. We won't be able to cut into any other surfaces, such as granite, composite or metal worktops. We will install all hobs based on the current hole in the worktop not being any larger than the footprint of the new hob. If required, we can make your aperture bigger to install the new hob, for example, if you're moving from a four burner hob to a five or six burner.
We certainly will. One thing to mention though - our delivery team will need to assess the unit on arrival to make sure it's in good condition and strong enough to house your new oven. As long as there's no existing damage, and we don't deem it unsafe, we'll have you connected up in no time.
That's absolutely fine. Our delivery team will disconnect either gas or electric, but will only be able to connect up the new item if the fuel supply for that type already is there.
They will if you've paid for installation. These days, most cooking items aren't supplied with cables or hoses, for your safety. However, our delivery team will come prepared. But, if you haven't paid for installation, we won't be able to supply these.
Unfortunately, our premium installation service is not available at commercial properties that don't have a secondary domestic meter. This includes integrated washing machines, integrated washer dryers, integrated dishwashers, integrated fridge freezers, integrated fridges, integrated freezers, ovens, cookers, range cookers and hobs. However, our regular installation is available on all other products at commercial properties.
Door reversal is included as part of our premium connection service on integrated appliances. For qualifying freestanding appliances, you’ll need to select and purchase this as a separate service when you checkout. On the product page of your chosen model, scroll down the specifications and you'll be able to check the default hinge position and whether or not the doors can be reversed.
One just controls the heating, so it’s great for combination boilers. The other connects to your hot water supply as well as the heating, which means it’s for boilers that have a hot water tank. Before you buy a thermostat, just make sure you’ve chosen the right type to match your boiler.
If you’re lucky enough to get unlimited hot water, you’ll have a combination boiler. If not, you’ll have a boiler with a hot water tank or airing cupboard that’ll store the hot water supply. In this case, you need the second kind of thermostat to control the water as well as the heating.
Hive thermostats work with most electric boilers, oil boilers (but you’ll need an OFTEC qualified engineer for installation), and gas and LPG central heating systems. Unfortunately, it won’t work with storage or electric room heaters, solid fuel boilers or heat pumps, or boilers that currently have Honeywell SmartFit Controls or a Vaillant VR 65 Control Centre.
Just bear in mind that Hive can’t guarantee a thermostat will work with your specific boiler until an engineer tries to install it. But if the requirements set out in the question below have been met, and the thermostat still can’t be installed, you won’t be charged.
For more information, check out this link. It also has a list of Worcester Intelligent Appliance boilers that won’t work with Hive thermostats.
An engineer will be sent to install your brand new thermostat, but to make sure everything runs smoothly, please:
When your shiny new smart thermostat’s been installed, please remember that any timers or thermostats you’re using now won’t work, and neither will any of their additional features.
We’ll be able to mount TVs over 49” as part of our installation service.
Yes, we can dispose of your old TV for you. Once you’ve added your new TV to your basket, simply select our disposal service and follow the payment instructions. All you need to do is disconnect your old TV and make sure it's ready for us to take away.
It’s easy. Choose your new TV, then pick a bracket that’s compatible with it. Once you’re in the basket, you’ll be able to add our TV to Wall Installation service to your order.
No, sorry – it needs to be added to your order and purchased from us.
As this is a premium service, you won’t be able to choose a delivery timeslot, but we will send you a 3 hour window on the morning of your delivery.
Yes, just so we can make sure that the bracket you’ve chosen is compatible with your TV and suitable for the job at hand.
No, sorry – you can only order this installation service with your TV purchase.
Our engineers will assess how suitable your bracket is on the day of delivery. We may not be able to perform the installation if your bracket isn’t compatible or strong enough.
here are a few things you’ll need to check to make sure everything goes swimmingly on the day. Firstly, make sure your wall bracket is compatible with your TV. Make sure any cables like HDMI or an aerial are long enough to reach your TV as well – if you need any cables, you can check out our range here. Finally, the plug socket needs to be within 1 metre of your TV. If it isn’t long enough, we’ll use an extension lead if you have one to test it so you know everything works.
Firstly, we’ll assess the wall that the bracket will be fixed to, and make sure it’s strong enough. Sometimes we may not be able to drill a hole if you have a concrete or natural stone wall. Once everything’s good to go, we’ll attach the bracket to the wall and mount the TV. We’ll then attach the cables and hide them with trunking, so everything’s neat and tidy. After this we can hook in any accessories and start up your new TV. If you’ve purchased a smart TV, we’ll even connect it to the WiFi, just make sure you have any passwords on hand for us.
Once we’re done, we’ll clean up any mess, so it’s like we were never there. Now you can dim the lights and enjoy your new TV.
Please note, we will have to drill holes in your wall, so we can mount the bracket and install your shiny new TV. Small amounts of décor damage can sometimes occur, which we won’t be able to repair.
Yes we can but this is subject to availability and postcode restrictions may apply.
We won’t be able to mount the TV above a heat source like a radiator or chimney. We also might not be able to drill your wall if it’s made of concrete or natural stone.
We’ll make sure everything is neat and tidy and mount the cables using trunking.
Yes, we’ll make sure you’re all connected and ready to go.
Yes, after we've installed it we'll connect your smart TV to your Wi-Fi. Just have the passwords handy for us. You'll need to log into any apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime video once we’ve gone.
Yes, you’ll still be able to return your TV if it’s not been used, as per our 100 day returns policy. For more information on this, click here.
Of course, we’ll make it look like we were never there.
We're here for you every step of the way. Just call our advice line on 0161 470 1200 and we'll either help out over the telephone or we'll organise for a manufacturer's engineer to visit.
When you call us, please make sure you have your serial number handy, as our team will need this to book in your engineer’s visit.
For smaller TVs (under 37”), we may ask you to take it to your local service centre. We’ll let you know when you call us, but we’ll make sure you’ve got all the information you need to get your problem solved.

You can register for an account in just a few simple steps by following this link. We’ll ask you to enter an email address and create an account password. We’ll then send you an activation email. You’ll need to follow the instructions in this email to activate your account.
No, not at all. You’d just need to enter your payment and address details each time you place an order with us.
We’ll remember your addresses, payment details and up to 3 bank cards so you can place your next order in no time. You’ll also be able to change your delivery date, add a timeslot and download your invoice so you’ll be in total control of your order. Plus, if you ever need to contact the manufacturer about your appliance, all their contact details will be on your order.
We won’t automatically create an account if you place an order with us, so you will need to register. You can do this here. If you’re ordering with us, you’ll also see information on how to register on your order confirmation page. We’ll give you the option to remember the payment and address details used in your order.
It may be that the password you’re entering isn’t strong enough. Try using some numbers and upper case letters to increase the strength. Your password should be unique to you and not something other people will easily guess.
We’ll send your activation email out immediately, but how quickly you receive it may depend on your email provider. Please also check your junk mail just in case. Add us to your ‘safe senders’ or ‘contacts’ list to make sure emails from ao make it straight into your inbox. If you haven’t received your email within a couple of hours, let us know.
Once we have your information, we’ll ensure we protect it with all of the appropriate safeguards. It’s important that you also take responsibility for protecting your account information. Make sure your password is strong, don’t share it with others, and try not to use the same one for lots of online accounts. Don’t send your password by email – we’ll never ask you to do so. We won’t ask you for your password information over the ‘phone; we’ll advise you on how to reset it. When you register a card within your account, we will authorise a 10p charge from that card. Although it may appear on your statement, we don't actually take the payment from you, it's just a validity check.
No, for security, we ask you to reset your password yourself. We wouldn’t ask you to share your password with us, but if you contact us we can advise on how to reset it.
From time to time we may also send you promotional offers and details, including when you first register for My Account. Our My Account registration discount offer applies to items worth £299 or more. Your discount code will have an expiry date and won’t be valid for use after that date. This is a promotional offer and can be withdrawn at any time.
There are a few reasons why Click + Collect might not be available. Some of our items are too large or heavy to be delivered to a store, so we only offer this service on smaller products and accessories.
At the checkout, you'll be able to search locations by entering your postcode. Collection points will appear in a list and on a map. Simply click the store that's most convenient for you to select it.
Some postcodes have a longer lead time, and therefore next day delivery cannot be guaranteed. The following post codes require 1 additional service day: AB1 – AB99, DD8 – DD11, IV1 – IV40, IV52 – IV54, IV63, KA27 – KA28, KW1 – KW14 and PA20 – PA40.
The following postcodes require 2 additional service days: TR21 – TR25.

KitchenAid is offering to replace certain kettles manufactured between January 2013 and June 2017. This is because the handle can, in rare circumstances, separate from the kettle’s body and become unstable.
The affected model numbers are:
The serial number range is YA302***** through to YA724*****. You can find your model and serial number on the bottom of the kettle.
If you own one of the affected kettles, you can call KitchenAid for free on 00800 552 27777 or 00800 381 04026 between 9am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, to arrange for a free replacement kettle.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower on 14th June 2017.
The Metropolitan Police Service have identified that a Hotpoint FF175BP fridge freezer may have been the initial source of the blaze.
Both the FF175BP (white) and FF175BG (grey) were manufactured between March 2006 and July 2009 and neither have ever been subject to any product recalls. The technical examination will determine whether you'll need to take any further action.
In the meantime, if you believe you may own either a Hotpoint FF175BP (white) or FF175BG (grey) fridge freezer you can register your product to be kept up to date with any developments. To do this, just give the freephone hotline a call on 0800 316 3826 or visit http://www.hotpointservice.co.uk/fridgefreezer.
If you’re not sure what model your fridge freezer is, you’ll find a sticker behind the salad container on the cavity wall that displays the serial and model numbers. Or, take a look in your product manual.
At this time, the UK Government have said that there is no specific reason for owners to switch off their fridge freezer. Click here for the full statement.
Indesit Company have issued safety notices relating to condenser and vented tumble dryers issued between April 2004 and September 2015 from the brands Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda. To read the safety notices and check your item, please go to either https://safety.hotpoint.eu/ or https://safety.indesit.eu/.

Love your neighbour - particularly if they’ll look after your parcel for you. For certain smaller items delivered by our very own AO Logistics team, you can ask us to leave your order in a safe place or with a neighbour if you’re not going to be in.
No need to hang around all day twiddling your thumbs, the interactive map on the Track Your Order lets you track the delivery van that’s carrying your order. You can’t use it to peek into the driver’s cabin but you can zoom in and out and check how far away your order is from your home. The location should update every ten minutes, but, if it stops moving it could be down to signal issues. Or, your delivery might be happening before your very eyes.
Not sure if you’ve got time to pop out for some milk? On the Track Your Order page, we’ll let you know how many deliveries we’re scheduled to make before we get your order to you.
Time is precious and so is your parcel. To save you waiting around all day, on the morning of delivery you’ll get a four hour delivery timeframe, then as we get closer, we’ll be able to give you a shorter estimation. So, there’s no need to wait around. If the timeframe doesn’t change for a while, it could be down to signal issues in your area.
Not sure if you’ll be in? No worries - you can request that we leave your parcel in a safe place of your choosing. You can also send us some additional instructions if you need to. Please note that AO will not take any responsibility for any lost or stolen goods.
