Product description
Grey Halogen room heater 1200w marked 'Extreme heat', packed in blue and white box
Risk
This product poses a risk of electric shock because: - the top of the heater is a class 11 construction. The wiring to the switches has been routed too close to the grille at the top of the heater giving inadequate protection against accidental contact with basic insulation; - the front cover does not withstand the pull test and became unlatched at a force of 21.7N. This allowed access to internal wiring and terminals. This product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive.
