What are the defects?

A defect of the ventilation wheel could cause a break of the device housing.

What are the hazards?

If the housing is broken then smaller parts of the ventilation wheel could be ejected, and the risk of injury cannot be excluded. There is the possibility of electric shock if live components were exposed from broken housing, although there have been no reported incidents of this.

We kindly ask that consumers immediately stop using the sander and visit www.sandercare.com to find out if the sander is affected. Alternatively contact the hotline on 0011 800 8364 6704 for details on how to receive a replacement model.
