I have just read the posting about Gas applainces and fitting extractors, it reminded me of this:

Several years ago someone died of Carbon Monoxide poisioning due to a faultly ELECTRIC STORAGE HEATER, the Electrician who was involved with working on it was taken to court, but the prosecution failed and he was found not guilty of causing the death, because no one was aware that Electric storage heaters could develop a fault leading to the production of Carbon Monoxide.

But the Judge then stated that under the Law if it happened again then the Electrician and or others could be prosecuted, because as a result of this death and court case those involved with the fitting and maintaince of Electric storage heaters should know about it and could not claim ignorance of the matter.

My problem is no where did I ever see or hear how the carbon monoxide was produced, can anyone out ther enlighten me.
I must admit I haven't touched a Storage heater in the last couple of years as they seem to be go out of use, how everit won't hurt to know.

Andy.
