Event Description
It was reported the powermax mdu hand control was overheating. No injuries or complications were reported as a result.
 
Manufacturer Narrative
Unit was powered on using the appropriate test equipment and it failed with motor stall error message and overheating. A kink was observed near the strain relief at base of housing. After troubleshooting, the cause of error was observed to be a defective power cord assembly. It was determined that the power cord has a shorted or open internal wire. Motor and hall board were tested and passed functional testing. The complaint investigation has concluded that this unit has succumbed to physical damage to power cord. Fatigue from repeated bending of the cable during extended use could have been a factor. A review of the device history record shows that this device passed all acceptance criteria and was compliant upon release for distribution. There are no indications to suggest the device did not meet product specifications nor does it allege any product deficiencies upon release into distribution.
