Source: Carrier

Palm Beach Garden, FL – The Consumer Product Safety Council (CPSC) has announced that Carrier has recalled its Carrier- and Bryant-branded 1.5-ton multi-zone, 4-ton multi-zone, and 4-ton single-zone ductless heat pumps.

The units are used for cooling and heating homes and light commercial facilities. The model number and product number can be found on the nameplate/rating plate on the side of the units.

The company reports that the fan motor on the heat pumps can fail, causing the units to overheat, posing a fire hazard.

Approximately 5,350 units have been sold in the US and about 450 in Canada.

Carrier has received six reports of the heat pumps catching fire (one occurred in the United States and five in Canada). No injuries have been reported.
