GE Appliances and Lighting of Louisville, KY has announced the recall of about 91,000 of its GE Zoneline-brand air conditioners and heaters manufactured in China.
The company reports that an electrical component in the heating system can fail, thereby posing a fire hazard to consumers. GE says that it has received four separate reports of smoke and/or fire with the recalled units, with fire extending beyond the units in two instances, resulting in property damage. However, no injuries have been reported.
The recalled air conditioning and heating units were sold by GE authorized representatives and HVAC distributors nationwide from March 2010 through March 2011 for between $1000 and $1200.
