    Hayward Pool Heaters Recalled

    August 21, 2003 -- About 15,800 pool heaters manufactured by Hayward Pool Products Inc. are being recalled.

    A malfunctioning circuit board can cause the heaters to fail to ignite, allowing gas to accumulate in the heater cover. Delayed ignition of built-up gas can result in a fire or explosion causing property damage and injuries.

    The company says it has received reports of four injuries.

    The recall includes all Hayward H-Series ED2 natural-draft pool heaters with model numbers:

    H150ED2
    H250PED2
    H350PED2
    H150PED2
    H250PEDH2
    H400ED2
    H200ED2
    H300ED2
    H400PED2
    H200PED2
    H300PED2
    H250ED2
    H3503D2

    A manufacturing label displaying the unit's model number and serial number is inside the unit, on the heater floor. Consumers can access the label by removing the front panel of the heater housing. The H-series ED2 Control Bezel assembly (a black box mounted behind the front control panel) encases the defective circuit board.

    The heaters were sold by pool installer and distributors nationwide from December 2002 through June 2003 as a component of various pool heating systems.

    Consumers should shut off the pool heater by switching off the corresponding circuit breaker. Consumer should contact Hayward Pool Products Inc., to schedule the installation of a free replacement control module.
