On March 14, 2024, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall on gas-fired hot water residential boilers due to carbon monoxide poisoning hazards. The boilers were manufactured by U.S. Boiler Company LLC, of Lancaster, Pennsylvania and were sold at independent heating and plumbing contactors and wholesale distributors nationwide from February 2009 through November 2023.

As far as the hazard, the reboilers have a blocked vent switch that can fail to shut down the burners if the boilers are installed at altitudes above 5,400 feet, which can lead to the vent systems becoming blocked. If such an event occurs, the boiler can emit excessive amounts of carbon monoxide into the home, posing a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.

Consumers were told to contact U.S. Boiler to receive a free repair that includes a free replacement burner gas orifice and a free replacement blocked vent switch if needed. Consumers who continue using the reboilers while repairs are scheduled should have a working carbon monoxide alarm outside the sleeping areas and on each floor of the home.

The recall involves reboilers from different brand names, including U.S. Boiler, New York Boiler, Advantage, FORCE, and Archer. For a list of affected models and descriptions from each brand, please click here for more information.
