WorkSafe Energy Safety was notified of a fire incident, resulting in property damage, within a house by Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ). FENZ identified the cause as originating from within the dishwasher.
Energy Safety could not determine the model number of the dishwasher, although it appears the root cause of failure originated within the motor. Energy Safety learned that the property was purchased with the dishwasher and the owners are unsure of the age of the appliance.
The investigation was closed on the basis of the lack of information available.
