Faults or defects

Insulation could become brittle earlier than acceptable by the standards. There is a risk of insulation breaking exposing cables if disturbed. Danger of electrical shock or fires due to exposure of live conductors.

Circuit breaker and RCD do not pose a safety risk, however, these electrical components are not approved for sale in Australia.
