Weil-McLain recalls Ultra Series boilers due to risk of fire, explosion

June 11, 2014

Boiler manufacturer Weil-McLain is recalling its Ultra models 80, 105, 155 and 230 MBH Ultra Series gas-fired boilers used for space heating, reported the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. A cap on the boilers’ manifold can crack and release gas into the home, posing a risk of fire and explosion. The firm has received 11 reports of manifold caps cracking but no fires or injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the recalled boilers, turn off the gas supply to the boilers and contact Weil-McLain to schedule a free inspection and repair. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The boilers have a serial number range between CP 6557046 and CP 6955985. Model and serial numbers are located on a bar-coded label affixed to the lower right side of the boiler, behind the removable front panel. The boilers have a Weil-McLain logo plate affixed to the front, a pewter/flat black cover and are either freestanding or wall-mounted.
 
Consumers can contact Weil-McLain toll-free at 888/770-7139 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.weil-mclain.com. Click on “Product Safety Recalls” for more information.

About 7,900 units were sold in the United States and 540 in Canada through plumbing and heating wholesale distributors, plumbers and contactors nationwide from June 2012 through March 2014 for about $4,200 to $6,200.
