Hodyon, maker of the Dynasys auxiliary power units, announced this week on its website that it has “determined a potential safety risk” with all Dynasys APU models and is asking Dynasys owners to discontinue use. The company says it is in the process of “detailing a technical repair process and instructions,” and plans to have an update by Saturday, Jan. 19.
Dynasys says that any questions should be directed toward its customer service line — (800) 289-8282. The announcement is currently listed on Hodyon’s website homepage — hodyon.com.
David Hancock, executive vice president of business units for the company, also has released the one-minute video below as a personal apology to Dynasys customers:
