Important Voluntary Recall Information Regarding Fluke T110, T130 and T150 Two-Pole Voltage Testers
Description of safety issue
It has been determined that certain Recalled Testers may experience premature failure of the interconnecting cable under cyclical bending stress. Recent experiments conducted by Fluke have shown a wide distribution in the number of cycles to failure exhibited by the Recalled Testers, meaning that certain Recalled Testers are subject to failure earlier than expected, leading to a useful life for certain of them that Fluke considers unacceptable.
Further, the cable may fail in an intermittent fashion where, depending on the cable flex orientation, it is possible for a Recalled Tester to pass a self check continuity test or validation on a known voltage source, while subsequent tests may display a false negative. The primary function of a T-Pole Tester is to detect the presence or absence of voltage to determine whether it is safe to touch an electrical installation and begin work. A false negative may lead to electric shock or arc flash from subsequent user actions as a result of the false negative indication, which may lead to injury or even death. Because of this risk, please IMMEDIATELY STOP using your T-Pole Tester and follow the recall instructions below.

The wiring sequence to the heating elements fitted to a limited number of Dimplex inset focal point fires may have been incorrectly assembled. This could mean that in the event of the product developing a fault, the response time of the overheat protection device may be adversely affected.
The risk of this happening is small, but as a precautionary measure and in the interests of safety, Dimplex is recalling the affected products. For those products already installed arrangements will be made for a service engineer to call and rectify the fault.
The fires affected are Series K (MKII) despatched from Dimplex between 8th May and Friday 13th July 2007. Only the following models are affected:-
