Carrier Forced Into Massive Air Conditioning Recall As They Negotiate With Bunnings

Carrier Corporation, who are in the throes of cutting a major air conditioning deal with Bunnings, has been forced into an expensive recall of their split heater/air conditioners.

Product Safety Australia (PSA) has forced the company to withdraw 11 models of Carrier-branded, ductless hi-wall and cassette split heater/air conditioners.

The outdoor condensing units of these heaters/air conditioners are mounted to the exterior of the premises cooled and heated by the unit, and in some cases mounted directly onto the premises.

As a result, PSA are claiming that if the fan motor in the outdoor condensing unit fails, it could result in a fire.

Carrier AC units are distributed in Australia by AHIC (Australia Proprietary Limited).

What’s not known is whether the recall will affect the pending deal with Bunnings for the supply of AC units.

PSA have warned that consumers should stop using these units, which have been on sale in Australia from November 1, 2013.

With thousands of units affected, the company is facing a major financial hit.
