The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with YORK INTERNATIONAL, recently announced a product recall of its Coleman, Coleman Evcon and Red T Gas Furnaces for residential homes, of which there are approximately 223,600 units in the United States.
These various furnaces are manufactured by Unitary Products Group (UPG), a division of York International Corp., of York, Pennsylvania.
The product defect associated with these units is furnace overheating, caused by the heat-exchanger cracking and creating openings that permit exposed flames. When this occurs the, drywall and other nearby combustibles are exposed to the fire.
York International has received reports of 393 incidents, inclusive of extensive property damage.
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. These furnaces were sold by Nationwide between 1995 and 2000 as original equipment in manufactured homes and as replacement furnaces in such homes.
