CPSC & Weil-McClain Recall Defective Boilers


Recommended Posts

On February 1st, 2006, CPSC, along with Weil-McLain Company of Michigan City, IN, recalled about 1,131 GV Series Boilers for a defect that can allow gas to escape and result in a fire or explosion if an ignition source is present.

As of the time of the CPSC release, no incidents or injuries had been reported. Inspectors finding these units should ask the homeowner whether it has been repaired under the manufacturer's recall. If not, they should advise the homeowner to stop using the product immediately and contact Weil-McLain to arrange for an on-site repair of the unit by the manufacturer at no cost to the homeowner.

The boilers are gas fired and were manufactured between April 1, 2005 and October 31, 2005 and were sold by plumbing and heating wholesalers to independent plumbing/heating contractor and then to consumers for between $2,200 and $3,200.

The units affected are model numbers: GV-3, GV-4, GV-5 and GV-6 with serial numbers ranging from CP5075477 to CP5221234. The serial numbers and date codes are located on the left side of the jacket above the boiler rating label.

For more information, contact Weil-McLain Company at (219) 879-6561 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday and ask for consumer relations or visit the firm’s Web site at http://www.weil-mclain.com.
