We’re not really thinking about fireplaces here this time of year, but there’s a big reason to check your gas logs if you’ve bought a set in the past four years.
Lennox is recalling 3,200 Shadowdance Natural Gas Log Set Burner Assemblies because a crack may develop at the gas valve connection which may allow natural gas to leak posing a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.
The company has received 20 reports of this happening so far.
This recall involves gas burners sold with Lennox brand Shadowdance natural gas log set burner assemblies. The product is used in a wood-burning fireplace or a ventless firebox enclosure. The assemblies were sold under model numbers LSVFSD-18, LSVFSD-24 and LSVFSD-30, and include a burner and ceramic-fiber log set. Replacement gas burners also were sold separately under model number LSVFSD-NG. Burners included in this recall have serial numbers that begin with 6407, 6408, 6409 and 6410A through 6410G. The burner's model and serial numbers are printed on a metal identification plate attached to the burner.
Fireplace and HVAC retailers and installers sold these nationwide from August 2007 through December 2010 for between $700 and $850.
If you have one of these call Lennox Hearth Products at 1-800-299-0027 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the company's website.
