A fire hazard has prompted the recall of certain Carrier and Bryant heat pumps used for heating and cooling homes.

The recall involves more than 23,000 “Carrier Greenspeed” and “Bryant Evolution Extreme” heat pumps sold at Sears stores and through HVAC dealers nationwide.

The capacitors in the fuse boards can stop working, causing the unit to overheat.

Carrier said it’s received 41 overheating reports, no injuries, fires or property damage have been reported.

Consumers should contact Carrier or Bryant for instructions on how to receive a free replacement fuse board, to be installed by an authorized Carrier or Bryant technician.

Carrier can be reached toll-free at 844-864-8233 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.carrier.com or www.bryant.com and click on “Product Safety Recall” for more information.

Additional details on the recall are available on CPSC.gov.
