<p><em>&nbsp; </em></p>
<p><em>(A repair station technician sent in two reports on the same aircraft 1 month apart. Each report describes the same defect on the L/H and R/H fuel senders.) </em></p>
<p><em>&nbsp; </em></p>
<p><em>“(This fuel sender, P/N S3852-1 and -2) </em>...has a dead spot in its travel (near the full position at the top of its travel), causing the fuel gauge to fluctuate rapidly between full and empty. <em>(This) </em>also causes the low fuel warning light to flash continuously.” </p>
<p><em>&nbsp; </em></p>
<p><em>(A search of the FAA Service Difficulty Reporting System data base revealed three additional reports for the base part number.) </em></p>
