TEFAL Smart Clean Fryer Recall

07 July 2008


The product poses a risk of fire because of loose connections in the mains terminal block which causes arcing, leading to melting and burning of the surrounding plastic insulation which could drop onto the plastic moulding beneath and melt or burn a hole in the base of the appliance. A large hole in the base would provide access to live parts, which could present a risk to the user, bearing in mind that the product may be alight and smoking and somebody, in a panic, could try to lift the product to put the flames out without disconnecting it from the mains supply.

The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and with the relevant European standard EN 60335.
