The product presents a serious risk of electric shock as the plastic control enclosure has insufficient mechanical strength, exposing live parts. If a user touches the live part, they will receive an electric shock.

The product also requires improvement to marking, labelling and documentation.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
