The immediate risk in any individual property is low, however, Electrium is undertaking a free retrofit of replacement parts in all affected premises.
The affected MCBs were supplied from April 2009 to February 2010 and are listed in the following table. All other devices are unaffected. Devices supplied outside of these dates are unaffected.
Crabtree (Loadstar only)
It has come to our attention that a very small number of Electrium Miniature Circuit Breakers, sold under the brand names Wylex, Crabtree (Loadstar only) and Volex, are not performing to the required characteristics. This can lead to a potential risk of burning in a small number of installations.
