Goodman Recalls Air Handlers Due to Electrical Shock Hazard
The affected air handlers are most often installed in apartment and condominium units
Goodman has issued a recall for approximately 210,000 air handlers. The pull-out disconnects may not disable power to the air handler, posing an electrical shock hazard to individuals servicing the units.
This recall involves Goodman air handler models AWUF and ACNF(A = Air Handler; W = Wall Mount; C = Ceiling Mount; U = Unpainted; N = Uncased; F = Flowrater). The recalled air handlers are most often installed in apartment and condominium units and are used with heating and cooling systems to provide climate control.
The AWUF model units are wall mounted, while ACNF model units are ceiling mounted. The affected air handlers have serial numbers beginning with 1511, 1512, or 1601 through 1610. The serial number is located on the label found by removing the wall panel (for AWUF units) or ceiling panel (for ACNF units).
Goodman has received reports involving six units remaining powered when the disconnect handles were removed. No injuries have been reported to date.
Owners of the recalled air handlers should immediately contact Goodman to schedule a free inspection and repair. In addition, Goodman is contacting all known commercial customers affected by this recall directly.
The recalled units were sold at Goodman heating and cooling equipment dealers nationwide from November 2015 through October 2016 for between $300 and $600 per unit. Apartment complexes, townhouse and condominium associations and individuals then generally purchased a bundled product including the unit, the installation, and ancillary parts and supplies.
