  • Causa
    Getinge has received complaints indicating that the central handle holder detaches easily from the cupola during use. we determined that the root cause of this malfunction is excessive tightening of the screws during mounting of the handle holder, resulting in the rivets loosening and detaching from the central handle holder ring.During manipulation, the handle holder may completely detach from the light head, if all three rivets loosen simultaneously. in this case, although the handle remains in the user’s hand, small quantities of particles may be generated from the plastic holder ring.
  • Acción
    Getinge will be in contact with affected users to arrange for a service technician to replace existing central holder rings.
