What are the defects?

There is a possibility that the white plastic casing may separate, which may cause the control to cease operating and may expose live 240V internal components. This is caused by the fastening mounts cracking as a result of the screws being over-tightened.

What are the hazards?

Electric shock.

Consumers who have affected controls should cease using the controls and contact the Recall Information line on 1300 138 774 for information on the procedure for return and replacement. This line is open from 8am to 6pm EST, 7 days.
