Dyson Vacuum Cleaner Electric Shock Warning March 30, 2010

Do you own a Dyson DCO5 Motorhead vacuum cleaner?  Best to check if there’s a crack in the handle, after the company warned that six people have suffered mild electric shocks from the fault.

In an official safety notice Dyson says: ‘In rare instances the clip on DCO5 Motorhead wand handles has been found to crack and this can cause the hose to become detached resulting in electrical connections being exposed.’ Users risk electrical shock or a burn ‘if these connections are touched while the machine is plugged in’.

Dyson is issuing anyone who owns this vacuum cleaner model a simple reinforcing cuff to protect and strengthen the handle.

… BWT doesn’t own the particular model stated above.  But still!  You can never be too careful.  So we declare no house work for at least a week. Y’know – until we get over the trauma.
