GUID070 Furnace, Potential Induced Draft Blower Leakage

Type: Service Alert
Equipment: Furnace
Recall or Alert Date: 11-13-1996
Serial Number: GF-133-S
Brands Affected: Amana

Description of Problem:

Amana is instituting a mandatory rework of all GUID070(CA/CX)(30/40) model furnaces manufactured prior to November 1, 1996 (serial number prefix 9611). These furnaces may have a small gap between the ID Blower and the flue outlet box. This condition, combined with a blocked flue, can allow a minute amount of flue gas spillage prior to the pressure switch opening.

To prevent this condition a bead of high temperature RTV sealant must be added to seal the gap (2 places) as shown in the illustration. The illustration shows the ID Blower removed from the furnace and looking at the back side (collector box side) of the blower.

Affected Products:

Amana GUID070(CA/CX)(30/40) model furnaces manufactured prior to November 1, 1996 (serial number prefix 9611).
