Fan Heater deficiencies

Complaint about Argos

Have had repeated issues with Argos supplied FAN HEATERS 1) OC Dimplex Model: DXUC2B Volts: 230-240~50Hz 15/15/A QC Code: 137015001217 Made in China 2) DeLonghi CERAMIC technology Cat.: DCHS Type: DCH5231 220-240V – 50Hz 2000W Ser. No.: 22520 S900057 QC Code: 138312014037 Made in China These Units are EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND COULD LEAD TO SERIOUS FIRES. Both use the same casing mains power cable restraint, which cuts through the mains cable, either cutting it completely, or, more seriously rendering it liable to short circuit. In neither of the two cases I encountered, did this blow the mains fuse, or trip any MCB. This is a potentially very serious issue. I withdrew the two above Units from service and re-made the connections safely after having discovered compromised cable coverings. This however may not be the case elsewhere, in other households, where people are not aware of the issues, and raises extremely serious concerns. Repeat:- these Units are EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND COULD LEAD TO SERIOUS FIRES. Photographic evidence can be supplied, if suitable interface is available. Regards, Peter.
