Email to a Friend

May 3, 2017—Goodman Manufacturing recalled certain gas-fired furnaces, because the blower motor isn’t grounded, which poses a shock hazard to someone who is servicing the unit.

The recall involves 80 percent efficiency furnaces that were sold under the Amana, Daikin and Goodman brands and are used with home heating and cooling systems. The recalled furnaces have model numbers that begin with AMEH80, DM80HE and GME8 and serial numbers that begin with 1609, 1610, 1611 and 1612. The brand name is on the outside of the furnace, and the serial number is on the label that’s on the inside of the furnace near the door opening.

The recalled furnaces were sold from September 2016 through January 2017 at Amana, Daikin and Goodman dealers nationwide.

No incidents were reported as of press time.

Consumers immediately should call Goodman Manufacturing for a free repair.
