Type / number of model:  Unknown
 
Batch number / Barcode: Unknown
 
Risk type:  Electric shock, Fire
 
The cross-sectional area of the external and internal wires is too small and the wires could overheat. The dimensions of the plug are substantially less than required. The wire ends soldered to the terminals of the flashing unit and the LEDs are not adequately protected against pulling and twisting. The accessible basic insulated wires can come into contact with sharp edges of the flashing switch and control unit. The insulation provided by the shrink tubing for the bulbs is inadequate. The product is not protected against moisture but is recommended for outdoor use.

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
 

Measures ordered by public authorities (to: Other): Recall of the product from end users, Withdrawal of the product from the market

Type / number of model:  GD-612LX
 
Batch number / Barcode:  6 950574 061256
 
Risk type:  Electric shock, Fire
 
The pins of the built-in plug and plug adapters do not have an insulating collar, so when inserting the plug the user may touch the live pins. The plug adapter allows single-pole insertion of a plug, leaving the remaining free live pin accessible. The cover for the LEDs can be removed by hand during charging, leaving live parts accessible. The cross-section area of the core of the wires is less than required: in case of a short circuit the wires may overheat and can cause a fire. The heat and flame resistance of the insulating material that hold the pins of the built-in plug in position is not sufficient.

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant standards EN 60598 and IEC 60884.

Batch number / Barcode:  14W03 / 3142186024092
 
Risk type:  Electric shock
 
The poor mechanical strength of the internal conductors creates a risk of reduced creepage and clearance distances. The poor positioning of the thermo-retractable sheaths creates a risk of poor protection of live parts. Faults in the fastening of the bare conductors and of the earth conductor can lead to changes in the creepage distances.

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 61242.

Product:  Nail manicure machine
 
Brand: Unknown
 
Name: Glazing Machine
 
Type / number of model:  DR-288
 
Batch number / Barcode: Unknown
 
Risk type:  Electric shock
 
The insulating sleeve of the internal conductors supplying the primary circuit of the transformer is in contact with metal parts. In case of a defect in the insulation, accessible metal parts could become live. The mechanical strength of the enclosure is not sufficient and could lead to the user being able to access live parts. The creepage distances between parts at mains voltage and parts at low voltage are too small.

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335.
