As part of the product recall program, Electrium highlighted a quality issue with the miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) supplied between April 2009 and February 2010. In a small proportion of cases, this may lead to overheating and in rare cases cause a fire.
The only MCB's affected by this recall are those listed in the table below; specifically only those which were supplied between April 2009 and February 2010. Other brands, devices and ratings manufactured outside this time period are not subject to this recall.

Typical Part Number Location
MCBs are usually located within a consumer unit/fuse box and the relevant information is available on the front of the MCB when the consumer unit visor is open.
Safety is of paramount importance to Electrium. As a responsible manufacturer, the company is asking anyone who believes they may have installed (either themselves or an electrical contractor) any of the above devices within the defined recall period, to call the helpline on 01543 455 000.
