The specific potting compound used in the subject products for insulation was found to be capable of conducting electricity after being exposed to heat.

Defect Consequence

Once electrically conductive, the material is capable of melting and burning, increasing the risk of a fire.

Defect Corrective Action

MCI will notify owners, and Sure Power will replace the equalizers, free of charge. Owners may contact MCI at 1-847-285-2000. This campaign is MCI service bulletin 401.
