    Gas fireplaces recalled due to dangerous delayed ignition issue

    Faulty pilots can lead to a gas buildup that can cause injuries when ignited

    Miles Industries has issued a recall for 370 of its Valor H5 gas fireplaces due to an issue with the products' pilot. 

    According to a notice posted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the pilots in recalled fireplaces can degrade over time, which can cause gas accumulation. The built-up gas can explode when consumers ignite the fireplaces, causing the glass window of the fireplace to shatter and potentially burn or cut those who are too close. 

    The recall covers two models of the Valor H5 propane gas fireplaces that were sold in seven different trim and front options. This includes models that come with log sets and those with a mesh barrier screen that comes installed in front of the fireplace glass. Model and serial numbers can be found printed on a rating sheet that is set behind the trim.

    Affected models are indicated by the following details:

    • Model 1150ILP with serial numbers ranging from 20001 through 20365; and
    • Model 1150JLP with serial numbers ranging from 20366 through 21502.

    Consumers are being advised to stop using these products immediately and contact a Valor fireplace retailer or contractor to schedule a free repair. Thus far, Miles Industries has received one report of a delayed ignition in the U.S., but no injuries have been reported. 

    The recalled fireplaces were sold from July 2014 to March 2020 for between $3,700 and $5,500 at several retailers. They include Southern Fireplaces & More, Custom Hearth, On Fire, Abercrombie & Co., Souther Hearth & Patio stores, and other Specialty Hearth stores.

    Triangle Tube recalls gas boilers

    The boilers may leak carbon monoxide

    Triangle Tube/III Co., of West Deptford, N.J., is recalling about 63,000 Prestige Solo & Prestige Excellence condensing gas boilers.

    Flue gas can escape from the gas boilers if the vent adapter is not securely reattached to the boiler after maintenance or repair, posing a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.

    The firm has received one report of a death from carbon monoxide poisoning associated with the recalled boilers in 2016 following a repair where the adapter was not reattached. The firm has also received two other reports of vent tube adapter separation from the recalled boilers.

    This recall involves 22 models of the Prestige Solo & Prestige Excellence condensing gas boilers manufactured between November 2011 and October 2019, for residential and light commercial use.

    These wall-hung condensing gas boilers are housed in a white metal box. The name “Prestige” is printed on the white front panel and on the outside of the cardboard packing box. You can identify whether you have an affected boiler using the firm’s “how to” document at www.triangletube.com.

    The boilers included in this recall have the following serial number ranges:

    The boilers, manufactured in Belgium, were sold at wholesale distributors and installed by independent contractors nationwide from November 2011, through July 2020, for between $3,400 and $9,700.

    What to do

    Consumers with recalled boilers should immediately contact Triangle Tube to schedule a free repair. Consumers who continue using the boilers while awaiting repair should have working carbon monoxide alarms on each level of their homes and outside sleeping areas. Consumers who do not have a carbon monoxide alarm can contact Triangle Tube to have one shipped to them free of charge.

    Consumers may contact Triangle Tube toll-free at (877) 574-5036 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, or online at www.triangletube.com and click on “Product RECALL INFORMATION” for more information.
