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.

Got a question about an order on its way to you? These may help.
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!
We offer flexible delivery options to the UK excluding the Highlands and Northern Ireland. We may not be able to deliver if you're in the Scottish Highlands or in more remote parts of Scotland.

If you've provided a mobile number, you'll receive a text message and email on the morning of your delivery letting you know the timeslot estimated for your delivery. Our deliveries start at 7am, so if yours is due before 9am, we'll send you your text message a bit earlier, at around 6.30am.

To help you plan your day without having to waste time waiting around. The Track Your Order service is available from the time you complete your order and can be accessed through the website, your Order Acknowledgement Confirmation email or by visiting ' Track Your Order’.
We confirm this to you at the point of choosing your delivery option. In the few cases where we can't confirm this at the point of order, a member of our team will contact you to agree a convenient delivery day and confirm the stock is available. On selected TV & entertainment, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY products, you'll be given the latest possible delivery date when you place your order; these items will be delivered with DPD Precise.

For all other deliveries you'll then receive an email and an SMS when your order has been dispatched with information on how you can track your order. Your expected timeslot will then be sent to you on the morning of delivery.
Sometimes there might be some restrictions on when we can deliver - for example if bad weather closes the road. We'll block out any unavailable dates when you place your order, and on the day if something stops us from delivering to you we'll let you know so we can rearrange. We'll email you with any updates, so make sure to keep an eye on your inbox.
If you’re in a real hurry to get your product, we offer a swift Next Day service.

Delivery slots are great for making sure your new appliance arrives when you’re at home. You can choose from morning and afternoon time slots for an extra cost, and we’ll arrive with your delivery at a time that suits you. 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.
Yes, you can change your delivery date up to the day before using the 'Track Your Order’ page. If you need help, just give us a call on 0161 470 1200.

We can offer you your very own timeslot. Simply choose from morning, lunchtime or afternoon delivery timeslots during checkout, and the charge will be added onto your purchase. On selected TV & entertainment, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY products, you won't be able to choose a timeslot.

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 or visit their site 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 on their site 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.

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.
We install thousands of products every year – find out more about this service.
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.
Please make sure The Hot Zone around your hob is free from switches and anything flammable. There also needs to be a gap of at least 65cm between your electric hob and the cooker hood or ceiling. This should be 75cm for gas hobs. If the Hot Zone isn’t clear of hazards, we might not be able to install.
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'll install all hobs as long as the current hole in the worktop is no larger than the footprint of the new hob. If you're moving from a four burner to a five or six burner, we can make your aperture bigger to install the new hob if required.
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.
Get your smart thermostat up and running with our help.
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.
We can wall mount your TV – check here for more information.
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.
No, sorry – a suitable one will need to be added to your order and purchased from us.
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.

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.
Take a look at our most-asked questions all around Click + Collect.
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.
CollectPlus stores are open early until late, but specific opening times vary between stores. You’ll find the opening times listed alongside each store when you make your selection in the basket.
Your parcel will arrive at your chosen store before 9PM on the day you've selected. CollectPlus will send you a text and an email to let you know when it's ready to collect.
When your parcel is ready, you'll receive a text and an email containing a collection code. Take this code, along with a valid form of ID, to the store within 10 days to retrieve your parcel.
Unfortunately you can't collect your parcel without a collection code. If you have lost the code that was sent, you should contact CollectPlus Customer Services directly to arrange for a new one to be issued.
Yes, that's absolutely fine. They will still need to bring the collection code that you've received and the proof of ID.
Once your parcel has arrived, you'll have 10 days to collect it. You'll also get a reminder if your parcel hasn't been collected after 3 days, and another after 7 days.
If you have collected your parcel and wish to return your item/s, please contact ao.com and we will arrange to collect your item/s from you.
If you can't collect your parcel within 10 days of its arrival, simply contact CollectPlus Customer Services to arrange for an extension of the collection period.
Unfortunately, our finance provider can only offer finance on items that are delivered via our own delivery service.
If your product is suitable for Click + Collect delivery, we should be able to help. If you have ordered a kitchen appliance, a TV or a selected audio, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY product, you can give us a call before 5pm on the evening before delivery and we should be able to change your delivery option for you. Selected TV & entertainment, computing and smart tech deliveries will be made by DPD so you can use DPD's in-flight options which allow you to arrange delivery to a local store.
For returns, exchanges and recalls, check our most-asked questions here.
If you’ve ordered a kitchen appliance or a selected TV, audio, computing, smart tech, gardening or DIY product and it’s not what you were expecting or you’ve changed your mind, get in touch and we’ll exchange it for you for free. As long as your product is unused and has not been installed, you can get in touch with us to request an exchange within 100 days of delivery. If you have ordered selected HP Computing products, you can exchange for another HP item. Similarly, if you have ordered selected Apple Computing products, you can exchange for another Apple item. We cannot exchange selected other TV & entertainment, computing, smart tech, gardening and DIY products - you will need to contact us to cancel the order and then place a new order for the product you would like.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds on software purchases. Your software will be emailed within 24 hours of placing your order, for you to download. The software isn't specific to any hardware bought and it can be downloaded onto other devices. If you need us to re-send, please contact us.
We always recommend backing up your data to a remote or external data storage regularly. If your product needs to be sent to AO or the manufacturer for any reason it will be restored to factory settings and data will be lost. Please make sure all files, photos etc. are backed up as we cannot accept liability for any data loss.
Yes, all products (except software) can be returned for free within 100 days of delivery. Give us a call with the serial number of your product and we will arrange to collect the item, free of charge, on a day of your choice. You will receive a full refund as long as the product is confirmed as unused once we’ve collected it. If the product has been used we will issue a partial refund as we are unable to re-sell the product. All software sales are final and cannot be refunded due to the nature of the product. For smaller items, why not head to My Account to arrange to drop your return off at a shop?

Find out more about how you can track your order on delivery day.
You’ll know exactly where your precious cargo is up to on delivery day thanks to our Track Your Order service. Don’t let us get in the way of your day – you can view a live estimated delivery window, an interactive map of where we’re up to and how many deliveries we’re making before we get to you. Plans can change sometimes, we get that, so we like to stay flexible. You can use Track Your Order to change your delivery date and even request another invoice should you need it.
Of course. We’re nice like that. Right up to the day before we’re due to deliver, you can use the Track Your Order page to make any changes to the date. You’ll need your order number (the one we sent you in the text message and email confirmation) and your postcode (we’re hoping you know that bit).
If you’ve ordered a computing product, selected TV and audio products, a Smart Home item, gaming product or garden and DIY product there’s a chance it’s being delivered to you by our trusted logistics friends at DPD. If so, you’ll receive a confirmation text message and email to let you know when it’ll be arriving. Right up to the day of delivery you can visit their website and change your delivery date, have your parcel delivered to a nominated neighbour or safe place or collect from your local DPD pickup shop.
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.
Got a problem with your product? These questions and answers should help.
We’re sorry to hear that your product is faulty. Head over to My Account where you can find out the best way to report your fault. If you don’t have a My Account, don’t worry! You can sign up with the same email address that you used to place your order, and it will automatically load your purchased products. If you want to speak to us, we can support you through the process, or you can contact the manufacturer directly, with the available numbers here.
If your product is under warranty and you want an engineer to come and look at a fault with your product, just call the manufacturer directly.
While it’s best to contact the manufacturer first, if you’d rather not, you can head to My Account to let us know you need help, and one of our team will get in touch.
If you aren’t under warranty but you’ve purchased AO Care and want to book an engineer visit through that, you can either visit www.ao-care.com with the details of your plan that were emailed to you, or call 0800 597 8588.
Or, if you haven’t already purchased an AO Care plan and want an engineer visit outside of your product’s warranty, take a look at our Repair & Care service.
Absolutely we can! You need our Repair & Care service. We can send an engineer to inspect and repair your appliance, and then you’ll get a 12 month warranty included once we’ve completed the job too.
