SolarWorld recalls solar systems with copper grounding lugs

SolarWorld Americas of Camarillo, Calif., is recalling about 1.510 million SolarWorld solar Systems in the U.S. and Canada.

SolarWorld solar panels installed with bare-copper grounding lugs can corrode which could result in a faulty ground circuit, posing an electric shock, electrocution or fire hazard.

The firm has received one report of corrosion related to the bare copper lugs. No injuries have been reported.

This recall includes SolarWorld solar systems installed with bare-copper grounding lugs installed after June 1, 2010. These systems use energy from the sun to generate electricity within a system circuit.

The installation instructions for SolarWorld solar systems sold after June 1, 2010 called for the use of GBL-4DB lugs for grounding.

SolarWorld has revised these installation instructions to explicitly call for tin-coated lugs, specifically Ilsco part number GBL-4DBT. “T” is for tin-coated and indicated by the silver color of the lug.

The systems, manufactured in the U.S., were sold through SolarWorld installers and distributors, or other distribution companies from June 2011, to June 2014, for about $1,000 to $10,000 depending on system size.

Customers may be able to identify from the ground whether a tin-coated lug (silver) or a bare-copper lug (brown) has been used on their solar panels. Consumers who can identify the improper lugs should contact SolarWorld for replacement.

If customers cannot determine which grounding lugs were used, they should contact SolarWorld to have an authorized SolarWorld agent inspect the installation and replace the lugs with tin-coated grounding lugs or equally safe alternative remedy at no cost to consumers.

SolarWorld is requesting that distributors and others remove SolarWorld’s installation instructions dated before June 2014 from their websites or other commercial information sources.

Consumers may contact SolarWorld toll-free at (877) 360-1787 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

The tire placard has incorrect information for the spare tire stating "none" for the inflation pressure of the spare wheel. Thus, these vehicles do not comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims for Passenger Cars."

If the recommended pressure for the spare tire is not provided, the tire may not be properly inflated which could result in its failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and -- as necessary -- attach a corrected tire placard label stating the tire size and pressure, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on August 30, 2014.

Owners may contact Jaguar customer service at 1-800-452-4827. Jaguar's number for this recall is J041.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling 3,361 model year 2014.5 FXDL Dyna Low Rider motorcycles manufactured January 6, 2014, through June 19, 2014.

Certain optional performance electronic control module calibrations in the affected motorcycles may allow higher engine rpms that could result in engine vibrations that cause the ignition switch to move from the "IGN" (ignition on) to "ACC" (accessory only) position.

That movement will shut the engine off, stalling the motorcycle while it's being ridden, increasing the risk of a crash.

Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine mount bracket assembly and ignition switch knob, free of charge. The recall was expected to begin by the end of July 2014.

Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464.
