    Where did you get those from?

    That is one of the recalled ones that leak.

    You need to send it back and get the ones that have a small bracket on the bottom.

    Recalls had the code 701 to 706, at least I read that here, these are 803

    They just got these in stock at a local supply house and I bought them the day they went on the shelf.

    Ill definitely be sending them back either way

    Swampfox,
    That is definitely a recalled set. The recall was from last summer, but we had a small number of units that were not returned. I am afraid that you have one. There was a plug that failed internally. Please return them to testo for an exchange. Please drop me a PM via my contact info in my profile and I will see that a new set is promptly delivered and you receive a prepaid return box for the recalled unit. We will handle the exchange directly to expedite the process.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I am a little sad seeing weber flaunt his gauges at me, while mine are sitting in jersey waiting to be returned. It felt wrong taking my brutes out today, where is my clean digital display.

    Send my gauges back to me.

    Twilli says speaking of Testo Twilli called them today and spoke with "jordan" about his weak wand on Twilli's testo 318v and was told there was nothing that could be done about it due to the design.
