Safety alerts

It has been brought to our attention that a model of Micromark Convector Heater has been found to be responsible for several fires in London. Fires have involved a hospital, a school and student halls.   A defect has been identified in a loose or poorly fitting terminal block which causes it to become hot with use and catch fire.  The company have confirmed there are faults on the heaters and that it only affects those manufactured during 2006 with the following models and batch numbers:  

Model Numbers : MM 53 582, MM 53 583, MM53.584

Batch Numbers: 291577/06/07, 06/08. 06/09, 06/11 and 06/12

Affected heaters must be taken out of service immediately. Estates should be notified via the Help Desk and the plug should be removed to prevent use.

 The pictures below show the type of heater affected and an example of the identification sticker which will be located on the back of the heater.
