CPSC, International Comfort Products Issue Recall


Recommended Posts

On October 19th, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and International Comfort Products LLC jointly announded a voluntary recall to repair 28,700 packaged gas furnaces and AC units sold by heating, ventilation, and air conditioning dealers and contractors nationwide between October 2000 and September 2005.

According to the manufacturer, the unit's control board can ignite and, in certain units, can result in the ignition of flammable material adjacent to the unit. So far, the firm has received three reports of minor property damage. There are no reports of injuries.

The recall involves certain packaged gas furnace and air conditioning units sold under the brand names Airquest, Arcoaire, Comfortmaker, Heil, Keeprite, Kenmore, ICP Commercial, and Tempstar. It includes configurations of "A" chassis units with 3-ton or 5-ton cooling capacity, manufactured between the 41st week of 2000 and the 26th week of 2003.

The model and serial numbers are printed on the

unit's rating plate. The rating plate is on the exterior of the unit, on the right side (as viewed when facing an installed unit).

Home inspectors should be on the lookout for these units and advise the owners to stop using

the products immediately. Contact the firm to check if the model and serial number of the unit inspected is included in the recall.

Consumers with recalled units will receive a free replacement control board and capacitor installed.
