Product title
Fan heater/heat convector
Product description
Small fan heater 2000 W marked extreme heat / heat convector, packaged in blue and white box.
Risk
This product poses a serious risk of fire because during the blocked airway test and the stalled motor test, the self-resetting cut-out operated as expected but the insulating boots on adjacent terminals had started to burn. In addition, the instruction supplied with the heater had contradictory instructions. Item 5 on page 2 stated that a minimum spacing of 100 cm was required; yet page 3 stated that only 50 cm was required. If the former instruction is correct, there is a risk that the heater may be positioned such that it has inadequate spacing around it. This product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 60335.
