Please read the following before proceeding: November
Company, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission
(CPSC), is instituting a voluntary recall of products in the Robertshaw 7000
Series. The voluntary recall applies to certain models of 7000 Series valves
produced between February 2003 and September 2004, wherever sold, including outside the United States. These products can be
identified by date codes 0306 through and including 0436. These valves are used
in gas appliances, including residential space heaters, wall heaters, boilers,
fire places, pool heaters, infrared heaters and furnaces, and commercial
heating applications such as commercial cooking appliances, fryers, commercial
water heaters and poultry brooders.
Under some circumstances,
if the pilot light in products that use the valve goes out, the valves could
stick in an open position, permitting gas to continue to flow. This could
result in a gas explosion and fire, which could potentially result in severe
personal injury and/or property damage.
If you have purchased a gas
appliance since February 2003 or if you have had a gas valve repaired or
replaced since February 2003, your product may be affected by this recall.
Safety Precautions: As with
any gas appliance, if you smell gas near the appliance or in the building,
immediately leave the area and call your local gas company or a certified gas
technician to investigate the cause. If you do not smell gas, check the pilot
lights on your gas appliances. If any pilot lights are out, do not attempt to
relight. Have the appliance examined by a qualified
technician. If the pilot is functioning normally (or if the gas supply to the
appliance in shut off), you will need to determine if your gas appliance has a
valve that is being recalled.
