Carrier recalls fire-prone air conditioners and heat pumps

Posted on December 27, 2015 3:29 pm under Product Liability

Approximately 285,000 units of Carrier’s Package Terminal Air Conditioners (PTAC) and Package Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP) were recalled last December 22 due to their power cords’ tendency to overheat, which poses a threat of fire and burns to the users.

The recalled PTAC and PTHP are of the Carrier, Bryant, and Fast brand names. The model and serial numbers can be found on the data plate of the units, and they are the following:

  • Bryant models 841 and 840
  • Fast models 841 and 840
  • Carrier models 52CE, 52CQ, 52PE, and 52PQ

185,000 units of the products were already recalled back in 2007, and Carrier has already received 47 cases of overheating, two of which involved fires with one resulting in a consumer suffering from burns and smoke inhalation.

Consumers are encouraged to stop using the products and contact Carrier Corporation for a free replacement cord.
