CPSC Alert# 08-397

PB (Peerless Boilers) Heat of Bally, PA, in cooperation with the CPSC has voluntarily recalled about 1,200 gas boilers for a pressure switch that can have an internal defect that could prevent the switch from shutting down the boilers under vent or air inlet blockage conditions. This can allow the boilers to produce excessive levels of carbon monoxide, posing a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning to consumers.

Inspectors finding these boilers should inform their customers about this recall and advise homeowners to contact their installer immediately for a free safety inspection and repair, if necessary.

This recall involves the DE and PSC II Gas-Fired Cast-Iron Boilers with the Endura Plastics Model ES2035 pressure switch used for home heating and domestic hot water heating. The boilers were available in either natural or LP gas.

These boilers were sold at plumbing and heating wholesale distributors nationwide from May 2007 through July 2008 for between $1,800 and $3,000. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. No injuries have been reported as yet.

The boiler-rating label is located on the top jacket panel on Series PSCII models and the left side jacket panel on the Series DE models. The label includes the model and serial number. The following model names and serial numbers are included in the recall:

Models: DE-03, DE-04, DE-05 and DE-06; Serial Nos. 5040768 to 5052860

Models: PSCII-03, PSCII-04, PSCII-05, and PSCII-06; Serial Nos. 5040777 to 5052166.

Other suffix designation may follow the base model number such as SV-WPC.

For more information, contact PB Heat toll-free at 877/257-3300 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site at www.peerlessboilers.com.
