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
The information printed on the heaters packaging included a statement that the heater had been fitted with a safety tip over switch. The only safety devices fitted were the over temperature protection devices. The heater would continue to operate if tipped over. The instruction supplied with the heater has 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.
