Venmar Ventilation Inc. announces that it is expanding its Safety Upgrade Program for certain air exchangers with or without heat recovery that it manufactures.
Venmar is asking owners of units covered by this program to immediately turn their unit off, and contact Venmar Ventilation inc. as soon as possible by phone at 1- 866- 441-4645, electronically at http://www.venmar.ca/, or by mail at SUP-2006 Program, 550 Lemire Boulevard, Drummondville, Quebec, Canada, J2C 7W9.
It has come to Venmar’s attention that an unlikely series of circumstances could lead to a motor overheating in certain air exchangers with or without heat recovery, which may result in a potential fire hazard.
Only certain models with or without heat recovery manufactured from 1983 and until 2001 are affected by this program. Units manufactured before 1983 and after 2001, as well as all other models not mentioned below are not affected.
To stop the operation of your unit with heat recovery you simply unplug it to turn it off. To stop your unit without heat recovery, you must put your wall control in “off” position. If necessary please visit the Venmar website under the “Product Recall – Safety Upgrade Program” section and consult the “What to do” item of the 2006 program to find out what to do to turn it off.
