A Tesla Model S recall was announced by Tesla Motors because of problems with the recharging unit.
The recall affects the 2013 Model S electric cars. The NEMA 14-50 adapters used for 240-volt recharging may overheat, which may lead to melted adapters or fire. A Model S owner in southern California reported a garage fire, prompting the update. According to the NHTSA, 29,222 potential adapters could be affected.
Tesla Motors announced that a software update should completely remedy the problem, but are offering Model S owners a new wall adapter with a thermal fuse. The new adapter will prevent electrical current from flowing if the wall socket heats up for whatever reason.
Owners of the 2013 Tesla Model S will be given the upgraded adapters at no cost.
