Feb. 16, 2005: CPSC, American Standard Companies Announce Recall

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with the voluntary cooperation of Trane and American Standard, has announced the recall of certain 2- through 5-ton heating and air conditioning packaged units.

The recall of 18,200 units took place because a gas leak can occur if there is a crack in the gas valve body near the inlet pipe connection. A build-up of gas in the burner compartment of the unit could occur, which could be ignited by an internal spark. Trane has received five reports of gas valve cracks, although no injuries or property damage has been reported.

Affected units are combination gas heat and air conditioning systems installed outdoors only. The units have identification plates displaying the model number. The recall includes: all units with model numbers beginning with YCP or YCX having serial numbers beginning with 3383 through 4475, and model numbers beginning with YCY or YCZ having serial numbers beginning with 4282 through 4475.

Consumers with recalled units are being contacted by the independent dealers that installed them. Consumers who think they have recalled units and have not yet been contacted should call their installer. For more information, visit www.trane.com.
