Solar owners asked to check systems for recalled switches

THE Office of Fair Trading (OFT) is reminding owners of Blueline Solar branded solar systems to check their systems for recalled isolator switches.

Several models of DC isolator including recalled Avanco models, have been identified as unsafe and pose a fire risk if they are not replaced.

Fair Trading Executive Director Brian Bauer said it was vital homeowners respond to the safety information they'd been sent to prevent any risk of a fire in their homes.

"Check to see if your system has any isolators with one of the affected model numbers," Mr Bauer said.

"Blueline Solar is responsible for the costs of replacing the unsafe isolators, so affected homeowners can contact them directly to arrange replacement."
