    Fisher plug problem

    Can anyone advise how is that possible that wire becomes loose on solder inside fisher plug filled with resin?
    And if that's really can be classified as general wear and tear?


    Email from repair service:
    "In regards to the question you said about why this happened and how to stop it happening again, the answer is a dry solder joint inside of the Fischer connector had come loose dropping cell 3 out, so I have re-soldered the wire to the connector, and then I have filled the Fischer connector inside with resin"

    I've asked them if this may be manufacturing error?
    and they reply:
    "I don’t believe this is a manufacturing fault as it would’ve broken sooner if that was the case, I believe it was just general wear and tear.

    If the wire is tugged, it can pull the metal conductors while the insulation flexes.

    Unless the joint is subject to movement during use, though with it being set in resin I can't see how, I'd say that it lightly got moved while drying as that is a major cause of dry joints in a short time and under a year would be a short time in my opinion.
