GE Appliances, of Louisville, Ky., has recalled about 33,500 of its GE Zoneline® Air Conditioners and Heating Units. Moisture from outdoor air can accumulate near the unit’s heater when the unit is operated with the vent door continuously open. This, along with two shorted electrical components, can create an electrical ground path and arcing, posing a risk of fire.
This recall involves GE Zoneline Packaged Terminal Air Conditioners (PTAC) and heating units with listed serial numbers. These units are most often used in hotels, apartment buildings and commercial spaces. The GE logo is affixed to the control panel door. Units with the following models and serial numbers are included in this recall:
GT, GV, GZ, HT, HV, HZ, LT, LV, LZ, MT, MV,
MZ, RT, RV, RZ, ST, SV, SZ, TT, TV, TZ, VS,
VT, VV, VZ, ZS, ZT, ZV, ZZ
The model and serial numbers are printed on the rating plate that can be seen after removing the front panel. GE has received three reports involving smoke and/or fire associated with the unit’s heater resulting in about $30,000 of property damage. No injuries have been reported.
