The recall was expanded Thursday to include drain pans installed with non-condensing gas furnaces.

According to the recall advisory, issued in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the molded plastic drain pan located at the bottom of the evaporator coil may overheat, melt, and warp, causing a hazard of fire.

The recall affects more than 298,000 units sold in the United States and another 44,000 units sold in Canada.

Daikin has reported 26 reports of fires involving evaporator coil drain pans to date, including three fire reports since the initial recall was announced in November 2021. Several of these incidents have resulted in significant damage by fire and smoke in residences. No injuries are to be deplored, specifies the opinion.

The affected models were sold by independent heating and air conditioning dealers nationwide from January 2019 through November 2021 for between $200 and $1,200 per unit.

Consumers are encouraged to contact Daikin to determine if your appliance is included in this recall and to register for free repair by a qualified technician. Daikin is contacting all registered consumers whose records indicate that their gas furnace system is subject to the expanded recall.

Consumers can contact Daikin by calling 888-520-0579 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday or online at
