Home heating boilers recalled due to carbon monoxide hazard

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

New Yorker Boiler Company is recalling its Gas-fired hot water boilers. The company says the air pressure switch can fail to shut down the burners when there is a blockage in the vent system, allowing the boiler to emit excessive amounts of carbon monoxide and posing a CO poisoning hazard to the consumer. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves New Yorker Boiler PVCGA model cast iron hot water boilers that use natural gas or liquid petroleum to heat water for residential space heating. The boilers are green in color, about 38 inches tall and about 26 inches deep and range from 11 to 30 inches wide. The front cover of the boiler is vented and has the New Yorker Boiler logo. Recalled boilers were manufactured between May 2012 and February 2013. The model number, serial number and manufacturing date are located on a silver label on the inside panel. The manufacturing date appears in the upper right corner of the silver label in the MM/YYYY format. The following model numbers and serial number ranges are included in this recall of 191 units:

Model Number Serial Number Range

PVCG50ANI 65320695 through 65383954

PVCG60ANI

PVCG70ANI

PVCG80ANI

PVCG90ANI

PVCG30API

PVCG40API

PVCG50API

For information about repairs, call (800) 535-4679. Consumers with recalled boilers should immediately contact the installer or distributor from whom they purchased the boiler or New Yorker Boiler Company to schedule a free in-home safety inspection and repair. Consumers who continue using the boilers while awaiting repair, should have a working carbon monoxide alarm installed outside of sleeping areas in the home.

The units were sold at Plumbing and heating wholesale distributors nationwide from July 2012 through Feb. 2013 for between $1,600 and $3,200.
