This product poses a serious risk of fire because during the blocked airway test and the stalled motor test, the self-resetting cut-out operated as expected but the insulating boots on adjacent terminals had started to burn.
In addition, the instruction supplied with the heater had contradictory instructions. Item 5 on page 2 stated that a minimum spacing of 100 cm was required; yet page 3 stated that only 50 cm was required. If the former instruction is correct, there is a risk that the heater may be positioned such that it has inadequate spacing around it.
This product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 60335.
