We have become aware of a problem affecting the DKB Household Switzerland AG TURMIX AX 200 Humidifier. DKB has found out that Turmix AX 200 Evaporator, article-N° A51129, batch code: 2811, has a technical defect.
In certain circumstances the heating coil fastener can become disconnected from the heating-regulator. This causes overheating and the bottom of the housing to melt. Since the risk of a fire and potential exposure to melted plastic cannot be excluded, DKB has announced the recall.
What To Do
Please STOP USING the product immediately, disconnect it from the mains electrical supply and check whether your product is affected.
How to Check The Model / Serial Number
To check whether your product is affected you will need to check the batch code. This can be found on the printed silver Turmix rating label on the underside of the evaporator.
Electrical Safety First recommends that anyone who discovers they have an electrical item that has been recalled should stop using it until it has been checked by the manufacturer.
