Subject: MAXIMUS® REGULATOR BULLETIN #SRB56-01
Special Replacement of Part #29-5602-12 Second Stage Orifice Used on SRB5600, SRB5600D2 and SRB5600CE Maximus® Regulators
Dear Maximus Regulator Owner:
Sherwood has received reports of cracked, bent and broken second stage orifices of SRB5600, SRB5600D2 and SRB5600CE Maximus® Regulators with the following serial numbers:
SRB5600 - K600001 through K611834
SRB5600CE - EK60001 through EK62000
SRB5600D2 - DK60000 through DK62000
A broken second stage orifice can cause a loss of manual adjustment of the second stage regulator, a "free flow" and possible loss of breathing air requiring immediate ascent.
Your authorized Sherwood dealer will replace the second stage orifice at no charge to you. Do NOT use your regulator until an authorized technician has replaced the second stage orifice.
This bulletin only applies to the SRB5600, SRB5600D2 and SRB5600CE series Maximus® Regulators with the serial numbers listed above. The Serial Number is located on the top of the second stage case, next to the mouthpiece.
This program has been reported to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission who will monitor its effectiveness.
If you have any questions about this bulletin, contact your nearest authorized Sherwood dealer and refer to this bulletin. For information about the location of the nearest dealer click here or use this toll free number 1-800-469-9929 and refer to bulletin #SRB56-01
Sherwood Scuba, LLC.
Don't forget that their old orange octos had a cracking problem because of UV degredation.
