  • Fire Concerns Prompt York International to Reannounce Recall of Gas Furnaces for Manufactured Homes

    [ February 7, 2012 | Jay Paul Deratany | Posted in Chicago, Chicago Personal Injury Attorney, Personal Injury, Product Liability ]

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

    Name of Product: Coleman, Coleman Evcon and Red T Gas Furnaces for Manufactured Homes

    Units: About 223,600 in the U.S. and 2,400 in Canada (previously recalled in November 2004)

    Manufacturer: Unitary Products Group (UPG), a division of York International Corp., of York, Pa.

    Hazard: The furnace can overheat and cause the heat-exchanger to crack and create openings that allow flames to be exposed. When this happens, drywall and other nearby combustibles are exposed to the flames, posing a fire and smoke hazard to consumers.

    Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received reports of 393 incidents, including some involving extensive property damage that could be related to these hazards, 366 of those reports were received after the November 2004 recall announcement. No injuries have been reported.

    Description: The recall involves Coleman, Coleman Evcon and Red T brand furnaces. The furnaces are silver with white access panels. “Coleman,” “Coleman Evcon” and “Red T” brand names are located on the middle of the front access panel. The model number is written on a faceplate, found by removing both front access panels. The faceplate is found mounted on the left inside surface behind the lower panel. Models included in the recall are:

    DGAM075BDD
    DGAM075BDE
    DGAM075BDF
    DGAT070BDD
    DGAT070BDE
    DGAT070BDF
    DGAT075BDD
    DGAT075BDE
    DGAT075BDF
    DLAS075BDD
    DLAS075BDE
    DLAS075BDF

    Sold by: Nationwide between 1995 and 2000 as original equipment in manufactured homes and as replacement furnaces in manufactured homes.

    Manufactured in: U.S.A. between 1995 and 2000

    Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the furnace until it has been inspected and repaired. Consumers should contact UPG to schedule a free inspection and repair of any furnace involved in the recall.

    Consumer Contact: For more information, including information about installation issues that may lead to the hazard, contact UPG toll-free at (888) 665-4640 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.dgatprogram.com. UPG Technical Services is also conducting a comprehensive notification and communications program and working with its distributors to locate owners.
