Exclamation New Aire FWS Wall Light Shock Hazard

If you have a 3343, check the wall light to the rear of the televator to see if you have 120v on the metal base and sconce. While troubleshooting wiring behind the TV I happened to touch the wall sconce and received a very strong electrical shock. Could cause severe injury or worse if yours is like mine.

Since the lights are LED, I’m surmising that the 120v wire that runs in the wall behind the light and up to the overhead cabinet outlets was hit by one of the four screws that holds the light to the wall.

Heading to Camp Newmar next weekend for warranty work so will let them solve this one.

One way to alleviate this is to remove one screw at a time, then check for voltage, and put that one back in, and take the next one out, if you come inside from outside and feet wet, or you are wet, that voltage can stop your heart. Please be careful.

Thanks. Since I wasn’t planning to use it till I take it to CN next weekend thought I’d leave it for them. But I’m going to have to deal with it now that I have company staying in it this weekend. Should be pretty easy to find, unless they were really good and hit the wire with two screws.
