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

Company Unitary Products Group (UPG), a division of York International Corp., of York, Pa.
Alert Type Recall
Date 02/03/2012
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. See the CPSC website for models involved in this recall.
Problem 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.
