Goldair has voluntarily recalled a panel heater after it was found to have a possibly faulty safety fuse.

The company said the Goldair ecosave panel heater model GECO200 was sold by Mitre 10 Mega, Mitre 10 and Briscoes stores between February and December last year.

"A possible manufacturing fault has been identified where a safety fuse can cause a small hole to form in the panel. Only a small number of units have been affected, but Goldair is taking the precaution of recalling all relevant units as a safety measure," the company said.
The 2012 model currently on sale is not affected.

People who believe they have one of the heaters should shop using it immediately and contact Goldair on 0800 232 633 between 8am and 5pm weekdays.
