Please note that any Fluke 902 FC with a serial number not matching those specified in the above table above is NOT impacted by this recall.

A. Description of safety issue

It has been determined that certain Recalled Fluke 902 FC may suffer from a manufacturing error such that a safety protection component may be rendered inoperable, which may lead to a risk of arc explosion, burns or electric shock.

For such a risk to occur, the user must apply a hazardous voltage to the terminals of an affected product while in the Ω (Ohms) rotary switch position, which is a misuse of the product. In such a use case, the manufacturing error may mean that there is severely limited or even no protection against arc explosion, burns, or electric shock. The probability and extent of injury increases as the voltage and prospective short circuit current of the electrical installation increases.

Fluke is therefore proceeding with a recall of all affected products as identified above (i.e. Recalled Fluke 902 FC).

B. Product replacement:

Please IMMEDIATELY STOP using any Recalled Fluke 902 FC in your possession.

Please then return your Recalled Fluke 902 FC to Fluke, at no cost, as soon as possible for replacement with a new Fluke 902 FC of the same model number.

Upon return of your Recalled Fluke 902 FC in accordance with the instructions below, you will be sent the new product. Note: If you have bought the Recalled Fluke 902FC as part of the HVAC kit then only the Recalled Fluke 902FC will be replaced.
