Manufacturer Narrative
Internal complaint reference case- (b)(4). The reported device, intended for use in treatment, was received for evaluation. There was a relationship found between the returned device and the reported incident. A visual inspection was performed on the product and observed no issues. A functional evaluation revealed a jammed motor/blade stall. A review of the device history records showed there were no indications to suggest that the product did not meet manufacturing specification or would not be able to perform as intended. A complaint history review concluded this was a repeat issue. The complaint was confirmed and the root cause has been associated with a mechanical component failure. Factors that could have contributed to the reported event include corrosion in the gearbox/motor assembly from cleaning and sterilization methods and the chemicals involved over a period of time or one or more of the motor phases shorting out.
 
Event Description
It was reported that the motor drive unit would not turn on. No case reported; therefore, there was no patient involvement. Results of investigation have concluded that this unit had a jammed motor/blade stall error which makes it a reportable event. All available information has been disclosed. If additional information should become available, a supplemental report will be submitted accordingly.
