From Atomic Aquatics:
Atomic Aquatics have decided to initiate a recall on the Cobalt Dive Computer after discovering a possible assembly problem that could cause the high pressure sensor to leak. Although
Atomic expects the percentage of units with this problem is small, the defect is serious enough that we feel it is necessary to recall and inspect as many units as possible to ensure customer safety and satisfaction. Fortunately the defect is easy to identify and we hope that you will cooperate with us to minimize the inconvenience to the customer. The computer may be returned to Atomic for inspection, but doing it at the retail store is simple and will expedite the process for your customer. Having a Cobalt in the affected serial number range does not mean it is defective, but that it should be inspected for the defect. Any computers found with this defect must not be used and returned to the factory for repair or replacement.
On Cobalts that pass the inspection, change the top cover to the new style per the attached instructions. Report the serial number and owner’s information on the reporting form. Return the Cobalt to the customer.
