(AHC Solutions Pty Ltd - Filter, ventilator)
Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 15/01/2018
Responsible Entity AHC Solutions Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue AHS Solutions P/L has been made aware of an issue regarding overheating of Vadi Heater VH220 causing shrinkage of the filter due to dysfunction of the cut-off switch.

The root cause analysis found that the dysfunction of the switch is due to the distance from the tape to glue the switch to the heating scroll not being attached closely enough. As a result, there is a gap between switch and Aluminium heating scroll, which, after a long term use, can damage the switch. The damaged switch will therefore be unable to control the temperature, causing overheating which deforms the filter.
