Joint recall with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Goodman Company, L.P.
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 recalled 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).
The pull-out disconnects may not disable power to the air handler, posing an electrical shock hazard to individuals servicing the units.
As of February 10, 2017, the company has received no report(s) of incidents or injuries in Canada relating to the described hazard. In the United States, the company has received two reports, involving six units at two locations, of the air handlers remaining powered when the disconnect handles were removed. No injuries have been reported.
Approximately 20 units of the affected products were sold in Canada.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from November 2015 through October 2016.
Place of origin
Manufactured in United States (Dayton, TN and Houston, TX).
