Defect Description: The product poses a risk of electric shock for anyone coming into contact with a metallic part of the awning under the following circumstances:

- the handle of the integrated emergency control for the motor has been used,

- use of the handle has caused the swivel connector to jam,

- the jammed swivel connector has caused the hood of the electronic chassis inside the motor to open,

- the opening of the chassis hood has led to the chassis support breaking due to the strain increment,

- the connection wires of the electrical power cable have been pulled out following the rotation,

- one of the two power cables is disconnected and the other has just touched a metallic part of the motor (crankcase),

- the earthing cable is completely disconnected.

The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and the relevant European standard EN 60950.
