Carrier/Bryant heat pumps recalled

USA/CANADA: Over 25,000 Carrier and Bryant heat pumps have been recalled over concerns of a potential fire risk.

The recall involves 2, 3, 4, and 5 ton Carrier Greenspeed and Bryant Evolution Extreme heat pump units sold in the USA and Canada.

It has been discovered that the capacitors in the fuse boards in the heat pumps can stop working causing the unit to overheat, posing a fire hazard. Carrier, which along with Bryant is part of UTC, is said to have received 41 reports of the heat pumps overheating, but there have been no reported injuries, fires or property damage.

The Carrier Greenspeed  model numbers are: 25VNA024, 25VNA036, 25VNA048, and 25VNA060. The Bryant Evolution Extreme model numbers are: 280ANV024, 280ANV036, 280ANV048, and 280ANV060. 

The units were sold at Sears stores and HVAC dealers nationwide from June 2011 to August 2016. About 23,300 have been sold in the USA and around 2,000 in Canada.

Further details from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
