Noticing Problems with Your AC?
Losing your cool isn’t fun. What’s likely to increase your anger? When an AC company is to blame. Recently, Trane, an AC manufacturer, announced recalls of more than 100,000 units. According to the report, the defective units may be improperly grounded, which could lead to accidental electrocution in some cases.
Reason for the Recall
37 models were found to have faulty ground screws. These important parts relate to essential electrical grounding that help prevent the system from giving off electrical shocks.
Defective units will lack two threads that connect these screws. Consumers can check for the defective model number on a silver nameplate near the back of the unit. The affected model numbers include the following:
*15th digit present on actual units is not represented on this list.
Aside from identifying the possibly damaged model, an AC technician will need to properly detect the issue. In the meantime, Trane and The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recommend cutting power from your AC’s main breaker switch. That’s right – no cool air until it’s fixed.
