Event Description
A user facility biomedical technician (biomed) reported that an aquabplus 1500 was failing the t1 test due to a defective p1 pump and was displaying the following alarm code: f-04-50-04. This occurred early in the morning before the clinic had opened; there was no patient involvement. Upon lifting the monitor hood of the reverse osmosis (ro) system, the biomed noticed that one of the cables was disconnected from the power switch. Additionally, the yellow cable lug on the disconnected cable was melted, charred, and had completely fallen off. The biomed confirmed that the other two cables remained connected. The biomed reconnected the cable and this resolved the reported issue. The biomed tried reattaching the damaged cable lug but it would not stay on. It was recommended they tighten the female connectors to get a better hold of the male part. The pump direction was checked; the two legs needed to be flipped, and then the pump was spinning correctly. After this was completed, the ro was able to pass the t1 test. The biomed stated a new set of power switch cables was ordered to replace these ones; they were still waiting for them to arrive at the time of follow up. The biomed confirmed that the ro did not have any service performed prior to this event. Additionally, the biomed did not recall the ro being worked on recently. There were no signs of any smoke, sparks, or flames. The thermal overload switch was not tripping, and there were no local power grid issues or environmental factors that could have contributed to the reported event. The biomed stated they would provide the ftp files, and send back the set of cables once they are replaced. A photo showing the cable with its missing cable lug was provided for review.
