February 29 2008 Safety/Inspection Notice for owners of Coleman®, Coleman® Evcon, and Red T Gas Furnaces
heat exchangers of some Coleman®, Coleman® Evcon,
and Red T gas furnaces have been found to overheat in certain
circumstances, which can lead to a failure of the heat exchanger
and the furnace.
What You Should Know
Is This Condition Dangerous?
The problem has been traced to differences in installation, application factors and variations in components.
These situations, if left unresolved, can lead to significant property damage, personal injury or death.
You should have your furnace inspected if it is one of the models listed below.
How Do I Know If My Furnace Is Affected?
The Coleman®, Coleman® Evcon, and Red T furnaces are used in manufactured housing. On these furnaces the name plate is found mounted on the left inside surface behind the lower panel. The furnaces are a silver color with white access panels. (see photos below)
These units were manufactured between 1995 and 2000 and used only in manufactured housing.
My Furnace Is Affected, What Should I Do?

Do I Need a New Furnace?

Will This Void My Warranty?
