Recommended Posts

On September 30th 2005, CPSC and Greenheck Fan Corp. announced a recall of approximately 4,200 sidewall, rooftop and centrifugal inline ventilation units. According to the manufacturer, LUX 3/8-inch spinlock bolts supplied with these units may not have been properly heat treated, which can result in the bolts breaking.

Bolt failure during lifting for rooftop installation or after installation could cause the unit or components to fall and injure bystanders. As of the date of the original notice, Greenheck was aware that 309 LUX bolts that had failed in the field but there hadn't been any reports of ventilation units falling injuring anyone.

The affected units are sidewall, rooftop and centrifugal inline ventilation units built between August 11, 2004 and April 29, 2005 containing 16 thread-per-inch 3/8-inch by ¾-inch spinlock bolts with LUX head markings. Affected model numbers are RBU, RBUMO, RDU, RB/R, SB/S, and BSU 360-420 with serial numbers 04HXXXXX through 05DXXXXX. The model and serial numbers are found on metal identification plate on the units.

The sales representatives and original equipment manufacturers are being contacted directly by Greenheck and the defective bolts will be replaced at no cost. For additional information, contact Greenheck at (800) 931-6579 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or email Kathy.Lenard@greenheck.com
