Affected Fusing Units:


Part Number Description Affected Unit Production Lots
D1204001 Fusing Unit: NA: Ass'y Dec.2014 to Mar. 2016 production unit
D1204002 Fusing Unit: EU: Ass'y Dec.2014 to Mar. 2016 production unit

Reading the lot number:


Ex., S/N. ODTEH4C003254: December 2014 - ODTEH63003254: March 2016 production
S/N: ODTRFYM XXXXXX (13 digits)
ODT: Unit code
R: Region (D: DOM, N: NA, E: EU)

 If it is not (as shown in the “NG” photo on page 2), this means that the harness was wired/routed
incorrectly at the factory. Remove the fusing entrance guide plate and swap the blue and white
wires. (as shown in the “OK” photo on page 2).

ACTION #3: Check the Condition of the Harness Jackets and Electrode Terminal
1. Remove the bracket [A].

2. Check the connection positions of the AC harness terminals (pink).


 Correct (normal): The harness is wired over the rib on the left side (see “OK” photo).
 Incorrect (NG): The harness is wired over the rib on the right side (see “NG” photo).
 Loosen the screw and wire the harness in the correct position.

3. Check the position of the electrode plate.


 Correct (normal): The electrode plate is inserted in the boss.
 Incorrect (NG): The electrode plate is not inserted in the boss (see “NG” photo).
 Put the electrode plate into the correct position.

 See photos on page 4.

4. Check the exterior of the AC Harnesses (pink/white) for damage.


 If you can see any of the internal harness lines through the harness covering, affix tape to the
damaged areas as a temporary measure.
 Otherwise, no action is necessary.

 The blue harness is the FG Line, so damage to this harness is not a problem.

5. Attach Teflon tape (20-30 mm) to the edge of the U-shaped


ridge in the metal frame.

 Procure the Teflon tape locally.
