Identifying features

Other identifying numbers


Reasons the product is recalled

It has been determined that upon the change to a new moulding tool, the WHT20-21 base pockets are not to specification i.e. they are too deep. This allows for excessive movement of the terminal in the pocket and for the potential for the circuit to close when the switch is in the 'OFF' position.

The hazards to consumers


What consumers should do

Customers are advised to ensure that all electrical circuits, where the WHB 355 Weathershield switch is installed are fully disconnected (using voltage detectors) before conducting any electrical installation or maintenance work.
