Consumers should immediately contact their installing servicer, dealer, or contractor to arrange for a free replacement of the outdoor unit. While awaiting replacement, consumers should monitor the recalled heat pumps while they are being operated and keep foliage and other flammable items at least 24 inches away from the recalled units. Lennox is contacting all known independent dealers about the recall directly. The dealers will contact individual consumers to arrange for recalled outdoor units to be removed and replacement units to be installed.
The firm has received two reports, both in Canada, of overheating. One report included a small hole in the heat pump motor due to melting and one report of the fan blade and motor catching fire. No injuries have been reported.
