Carrier Recalls Heat Pumps Due To Fire Risk

Carrier has recalled about 5,350 Carrier- and Bryant-Branded heat pumps due to a risk of fire.

The company recalled Carrier- and Bryant-branded 1.5-ton multi-zone, 4-ton multi zone and 4-ton single-zone ductless heat pumps. According to the company, the fan motor on the heat pumps can fail, causing the units to overheat, posing a fire hazard.

Carrier said it received six reports of the heat pumps catching fire. However no injuries have been reported. The company has asked customers to immediately contact their installing servicer, dealer or contractor to arrange for a free repair.

Carrier and Bryant distributors, independent dealers and contractors nationwide from March 2015 through April 2019 for between about $600 and about $4,000.
