Additional information:

Among the 47 recalls the European Union has announced in its fourth report of November 2018, the following recall notification was made:

Black & Decker branded Wallpaper Strippers, sold with a model number of KX3300-QS, a type/wattage designation of Type 02, 2400W and a barcode/EAN of 5011402171712

The type of hazard presented in these recalled Wallpaper Strippers include overheating with resultant burns, scald and property damage hazards.

Specifically, if operators refill the recalled Steamers with water to create the necessary steam they can suffer burns and scalds from the steam.

The Wallpaper Strippers do not comply, therefore, with the requirements of Europe’s Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335 in that they pose serious health and/or safety hazards to those who use them. Consequently, they have been ordered withdrawn from the European marketplace.

==> Please do not use any of the recalled Wallpaper Strippers products for your DIY project. Instead, please return the Wallpaper Strippers to the store or online outlet from which you purchased them for a full refund.
