January 31, 2013 – Fluke Corp. is voluntarily recalling some digital clamp meters that were manufactured between September 1, 2010, and October 31, 2012.
This recall involves certain Fluke 373, 374, 375 and 376 digital clamp meters that were manufactured by Fluke Corp. The printed circuit assembly in these units may not be properly fastened to the test lead input jack. This may result in inaccurate voltage readings—including a low or no voltage reading on a circuit energized with a hazardous voltage—presenting a shock, electrocution or thermal burn hazard.
The recall involves Fluke digital clamp meters with the model and serial numbers listed below. Any serial number preceded or followed by the letter “R” is NOT affected by this notice.
Model Manufacture Dates Starting Serial No. Ending Serial No.
376 Sept 2010-Feb 2011 14270001 15909999
