IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
We have identified a rare but potential safety problem with some of our cordless drills. Under very unusual circumstances the switch on these drills can overheat creating a risk of smoking and melting and may present a remote possibility of fire. The potential problem only affects a limited number of products in our extensive range. However, we are taking the precaution of recalling models that may be affected.

If your drill does not have one of these codes it is not affected. You do not need to return it to us and you can continue to use it with confidence.

To check the date code, remove the battery and look at the base of the handle (see diagram).
