A Condo Board Member came by and insisted I disassemble the Breaker Lockout for the Water Heater.
I asked why?
She told me an “Electrician” told her that these lockout devices could lock the Breaker Open and “Burn down the House”.
I asked here if the “Electrician” left her a written report about these?
She says well, it may not have been an “Electrician”, it was someone that changed out a Water Heater for a Neighbor that told the Neighbor about the “Danger”.
I can not find a recall, nor can I find anything relating to these devices being a hazard.
I left mine as is, I printed the link below and passed it on to the Board Member.
Anyone heard or these Lock Outs being problematic?
