The problem

Water may enter the light fitting around the lens and, in some cases, make the body of the light electrically live. Touching the live light fitting may result in electric shock.

Details

Affected models: LHT 0230, LHT 0231, LHT 0232, LHT 0233, LHT 0234, LHT 0235, LHT 0236, LHT 0237.

The model number is on the rating label on the back of the unit. There are two distinct versions – those with a passive infrared sensor (PIR) and those without a PIR.

The affected floodlights were sold at electrical wholesalers nationwide between 20 March 2014 and 5 August 2014.

  • Switch off the light and get a licensed electrical contractor to disconnect power to the unit.
