Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Goodman Air Handler models “AWUF” and “ACNF”, where the “A” indicates an “Air Handler”; a “W” indicates “Wall Mount”; a “C” denotes a “Ceiling Mount” unit; while a “U” refers to an “Unpainted” Air Handler. The designations “N” and “F” indicate an “Uncased” model and a “Flowrater” model, respectively.

The recalled Air Handlers are most often installed in apartment and condominium units and are used in conjunction with heating and cooling systems (sometime referred to as “HVAC” systems) to provide climate control.

As noted above, the AWUF model Air Handlers are wall mounted, while ACNF model units are ceiling mounted. The recalled Air Handlers have serial numbers ranging from 1511, 1512, or 1601 through to 1610. The serial number is located on the label which can be found by removing the wall panel (for AWUF units) or ceiling panel (for ACNF units).

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the pull-out disconnect interlock may not disable power to the Air Handler, posing an electrical shock hazard to individuals servicing the units. Goodman has received reports involving six (6) units at two (2) locations of the Air Handlers remaining powered when the disconnect handles were removed. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Air Handlers, please do not service the unit. Instead, kindly contact Goodman for a free on-location inspection and free repair, as required. Goodman is also contacting all known commercial owners directly.
