SAFETY NOTICE SMOKE ALARMS

In the course of our continuous quality programme we have discovered a possible problem that may invalidate the working of a quantity of three models within our Smoke Alarm Range.

A9430 STANDARD ALARM
A9431 KITCHEN ALARM
A9432 ESCAPE ROUTE ALARM

This notice is only relevant to three models: The A9430, A9431, A9432.

To identify the Smoke Alarm, please remove from wall if already installed, and locate the rating plate on the back of the alarm. Amongst other information will be the model number: A9430/l/2. Assuming this is the case, please look below the model number and you will see the batch number. Only the model numbers above with the following batch numbers are affected: 9228 through to 9248 inclusive

All other Black & Decker smoke alarms (including model numbers A9430/1/2) with different batch numbers are totally unaffected.

If you possess one of the above, please cease using it immediately, and contact us at your earliest convenience. We have set up a Helpline on: (Freephone) 0800 252661 to take your calls between 9am to 5pm weekdays, Saturday 29/11/92 and Sunday 30/11/92. Or simply call your Black & Decker Service Centre (see Yellow Pages for details). Your co-operation in this matter is appreciated.
