International Comfort Products LLC is recaling about 28,000 gas furnace and AC units. The unit's control board can ignite and, in certain units, can result in the ignition of flammable material adjacent to the unit.
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.
The recall 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 units rating plate. The rating plate is on the exterior of the unit, on the right side (as viewed when facing an installed unit). Contact the firm to check if your model and serial number of your unit is included in the recall.
The units were sold by heating, ventilation, and air conditioning dealers and contractors nationwide between October 2000 and September 2005.
