Manufacturer Narrative
The device was received for evaluation. There was a relationship found between the returned device and the reported incident. A visual inspection was performed and no issues were noted. Product failed functional testing with hand piece error when inserted into mdu receptacle on test control unit. Cause of hand piece errors is a corroded reverse and oscillate button springs that was stuck in the ¿on¿ position. Photos of button assembly corrosion attached. The complaint was confirmed and the root cause has been determined to be corrosion of the reverse and oscillate button assemblies. Factors that could have contributed to the event include a buildup of corrosion/debris around the button assemblies from cleaning chemical fluid ingression over time. 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. No containment or corrective actions are recommended at this time.
