Boeing has asked 16 of its customers to address a potential problem related to an electrical power system on certain 737 MAX airplanes before continuing operations, the U.S. aircraft maker said Friday.

Boeing said it wants those customers to check and verify whether there is a sufficient ground path for an electrical power system component on some affected MAX airplanes with specific tail numbers.

“We are working closely with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on this production issue,” the company said in a statement Friday.

“We are also informing our customers of the specific tail numbers affected and will provide instructions on appropriate corrective actions.”

A Boeing spokeswoman said this problem was not related to a key safety system called MCAS, which had led to the grounding of the Max for 20 months.
