Geez- look at the wording of the recall:
"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."
I suppose if you're lucky enough to not have it break at the instant after you perform the "industry-standard" procedure, you might actually evade this issue.
And then there's:
"The ACD-10 PRO, ACD-10 TRMS-PRO, ACD-14 and ACD-14 TRMS models "lock up" in certain circumstances failing to properly measure hazardous voltage levels on electrical systems."
if you're gonna say "certain circumstances", you are implying that there is some reason or conducive condition that will occur.
I used to really like Amprobe- I just lost some respect for them reading that recall notice.
thank you for the heads up
