About 185,000 Carrier air conditioners and heat pumps are being recalled because they may pose a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The recall applies to packaged terminal air conditioners and packaged terminal heat pumps manufactured between 2001 and 2005. Consumers should check the company website to determine if their unit is included in the recall.
The company says an electric heater in the units may break, creating a fire hazard. Five incidents have been reported, resulting in fires.
The units were sold through HVAC dealers and factory-direct sales in the U.S. from January 2002 through December 2006 for between $425 and $675 US.
Consumers should stop using the heating mode of the units and contact the company for an inspection and repair if necessary.
