Important Safety Notice and Recall
Fluke T2 Electrical Tester


(Info below is from Fluke Site)

If your T2 tester has a serial number of 7351XXXX or higher please stop using this product and return it to Fluke for free repair. Units with lower serial numbers are not affected.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM: The T2 "locks up" in certain circumstances while being used to check voltages over 400V or in applications where high levels of static electricity or transients are present. When the tester "locks up" it stops working for approximately 8 minutes, after which the tester resets itself. If the user does not follow industry standard practice by verifying the tester before and after checking a circuit, he/she may believe there is no voltage present when in fact there is. THIS COULD PLACE THE USER IN A POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS SITUATION.
