The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Goodman Co. announced a voluntary recall of its Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner/Heat Pump (PTACs) Units.



The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Goodman Co. announced a voluntary recall of its Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner/Heat Pump (PTACs) Units. The power cords on the PTACs can overheat, posing a burn or fire hazard. About 30,000 units were sold at Goodman and heating and cooling equipment dealers nationwide from Feb. 2007 through June 2008 (between $700 and $1,000). This product was previously recalled in Aug. 2008.

Although Goodman has received 11 reports of smoke or fire associated with the PTAC's power cords, no actual injuries have been reported. The recall includes 5.0 kW Amana-brand, Comfort-Aire-brand and Century-brand Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner units with model numbers:
  • PTxxx3x50xx (Amana)

  • EKTxxx-150x (Comfort-Aire and Century) and

  • serial numbers 0702112056 through 0804237539.
    The model and serial numbers are located on the control board plate found under the PTAC unit's front cover.

Consumers should contact Goodman to receive a free replacement power cord. Commercial and institutional owners will be contacted directly and will install the power cord.

For additional information regarding Amana-brand units, contact Goodman at (800) 366-0339 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday; for Comfort-Aire and Century-brand units call (877) 442-4482 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday; or visit www.regcen.com/ptaccord for all products.
