    G'day all,

    Heard this on radio last night. Could be worth checking out if YOU have had a Safety Switch fitted to any properties in the last 2 years.

    As I heard it, there has been a RECALL issued for safety switches fitted since Dec 03. The brands involved are Merlin Gerin or Square D (the latter being a D in a square).

    The warning was that "they may not switch off when triggered" :eek:

    Anyone with one of the above brands fitted since Dec 03 should call Schneider Electric on 1300 733907.

    The radio presenter also mentioned "a list of serial numbers" - so it may be worth collecting this before ringing Schneider.

    Regards,

    Time for a bump - in case new readers are not aware (and thanks, Jacque, for finding it again :D)

    Also, Dunc's comment is very worthwhile too,

    Regards,
