It has come to Venmar's attention that an unlikely series of circumstances could lead to a motor overheating in certain air exchangers with or without heat recovery, which may result in a potential fire hazard. These products otherwise comply with all applicable CSA, UL and other safety standards. They are already protected by a circuit protection under the National and local Electrical Codes.
Only certain models with or without heat recovery manufactured from 1983 and until 2001 are affected by this program. This preventative measure does not involve air exchangers with or without heat recovery manufactured before 1983 and after 2001, as well as all other models not mentioned below. Relative to this program, Venmar will provide an additional safety upgrade device free of charge.
The Product Recall Program affects selected units distributed under the brand names of : Venmar, Venmar AVS, Flair, vänEE, Sears, Guardian by Broan, NuTone, Conformax, Payne, Day & Night, Carrier, Bryant, Heil, York, Rheem, Ruud, Protech, Hush, IVL and Weatherking sold in North-America. Only the units with the following model numbers are covered by this safety upgrade program. The model number is located on the outside panel of the unit or under certain wall controls.
To stop the operation of your unit with heat recovery you simply unplug it to turn it off. To stop your unit without heat recovery, you must put your wall control in "off" position, if necessary please visit our website www.venmar.ca. under the "Product Recall - Safety Upgrade Program" section consult the "What to do" item of the 2006 program to find out what to do to turn it off.
