Invacare Birdie and Birdie Compact Recall for Product Correction
In the interests of the safety of our customers, we would like to bring to your attention the correct assembly of the D-Clip that connects the actuator to the Invacare Birdie lifter’s arm. The lifter arm and actuator do not arrive assembled together at the Customer. As a result of some vigilance cases overseas, where the actuator’s D-Clip becomes damaged and the lifter arm falls down, we have become aware that if the D-Clip is always placed backwards and pointing down towards the actuator, it can start to become damaged after a number of cycles. This notification requires the device to be inspected to confirm whether the lifter has been assembled correctly at the point of the end user. Please read the links below for more information.
Invacare has recently identified a supplier quality issue that potentially impacts certain Invacare® Platinum concentrators. This letter is to provide you with the important information concerning the potential for a ruptured compressor motor start/run capacitor.
