IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE FROM WARNER HOWARD (PART OF THE PHS GROUP PLC)
August 23, 2011
NOTICE OF RETROFIT FOR CERTAIN WORLD DRYER HAND DRYER MODELS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JUNE 2005 AND NOVEMBER 2006 (Manufacture Date Codes 200506 to 200611 Inclusive)
World Dryer Universal Nozzle A48 Models manufactured between June 2005 and November 2006 have nozzles that are electrically isolated from the base of the dryer and therefore not connected to earth.
A Universal Nozzle is one that rotates 360 degrees.
There are no electrical components within or touching the nozzle itself. However, if an electrical malfunction were to occur that caused an electrical component to come into contact with the nozzle, a user who touched the nozzle could experience a shock.
The risk of such an occurrence is possible, but remote.
World Dryer have supplied a retrofit kit which Warner Howard will supply and fit free of charge, for those customers who have one of the affected dryers.
It is recommended that customers with an affected dryer cease using the product as a precautionary measure and contact Warner Howard.
The dryers affected are World Dryer hand dryers that include model numbers:
DA48, A48, A48SS, DXA48, XA48, XA48SS, XM548, DXM548
Batch Serial Numbers of affected dryers can be downloaded by clicking here. Please read this list carefully. The 'Sequence' column refers to a production batch. In some cases the affected batch consists of a single dryer (marked as 'Individual').

Any customer with a dryer with a Serial Number included within this list
