  • Causa
    The issue was that the product fails prematurely when misused. the failure is specifically in the area where the electric cord meets the strain relief/switch. in cases where a user repeatedly bends and stresses the cord at a sharp/tight angle the cord may wear leading to a quick spark when the wire inside the cord fails. this then may lead to a visible spark small amounts of smoke or small amounts of carbon residue when it fails. the failure does not have any likelihood of injuring the user. this failure mode has been seen in less than one-hundredth of one percent (.09%) of units in the field.
