Bathroom fan heaters prohibited from sale

Energy Safety has prohibited the use and sale of two models of Goldair branded wall mounted bathroom fan heaters because they have caused a number of fires.

The two heaters affected by the prohibition have the model numbers 3108 or 3109 on the back and match images shown on the Worksafe New Zealand website. These heaters are likely to have been installed three or more years ago. This prohibition does not affect any other Goldair bathroom heaters, so please expressly check your heater first (to the images shown).

Consumers should immediately cease to use the heater.
