Fluke Recalls Digital Clamp Meters Due to Shock Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Corp., of Everett, Wash., recently announced a voluntary recall of about 52,000 Fluke Digital Clamp Meters.

The meters can fail to give an appropriate voltage reading, resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is off, posing a shock, electrocution, or thermal burn hazard.

No injuries have been reported, but Fluke has received three reports of clamp meters displaying an incorrect voltage reading. This recall involves Fluke Digital Clamp Meters with model and serial numbers listed below. The model number may be followed by an "A."

3369622000098900400
3379607000098890607

Serial numbers that begin with "S" or are followed by "R" are not included in the recall. "Fluke" and the model number are printed on the front of the unit and the serial number on the back. The instrument body is yellow, red, and black. The clamp meters measure 0 to 600 volts alternating current (VAC), 0 to 600 volts direct current (VDC), and 0 to 400, 600 or 1000 amps alternating current.

The devices were manufactured in Chine and sold by industrial distributors, electrical wholesalers, and some hardware stores nationwide from January 2008 through February 2009 for between $150 and $375.

Consumers should stop using these recalled Digital Clamp Meters immediately and contact Fluke for a free replacement clamp meter at 888-983-5853 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday, or visit www.fluke.com/33Xrecall.
