Electrical wiring may be exposed, posing electrical shock and electrocution hazards

Yamaha Corporation of America of Buena Park, Calif., is recalling about 34,500 Yamaha PA-10 AC power adaptors.

A crack can occur between the adapter’s upper and lower cases allowing them separate completely and expose electrical wiring, posing electrical shock and electrocution hazards.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves Yamaha’s PA-10 AC power adaptors with date codes ranging from 2126 to 2319.

Yamaha is printed on the front of the black power adapter and the date code is printed on the back.

The PA-10 AC Power Adapter was bundled with five Yamaha analog mixing console models -- MG10, MG10X CV, MG10XU, MG10XUF, and MG12XUK -- and sold as a stand-alone replacement part.

Only the PA-10 AC power adapter is being recalled.

The power adaptors, manufactured in China, were sold at Guitar Center, Amazon.com, Sweetwater Sound, Sam Ash, Musicians Friend, B & H Foto & Electronics, American Musical Supply, and other independent, authorized Yamaha professional audio stores nationwide; and directly by Yamaha online at www.usa.yamaha.com and www.shop.usa.yamaha.com/ from June 2021, through November 2023, for about $60.
