RECALL: Risk of excessive heat with Daikin, Amana, Goodman heat pumps

July 2, 2024  By  Anthony Capkun



July 2, 2024 – Daikin Comfort Technologies (DCT) Manufacturing is recalling Daikin FIT, Amana S-series, and Goodman SD heat pumps due to risk of excessive heat exposure.

This recall involves about 5,549 units in Canada, and about 56,028 in the U.S.

Refer to the chart for the model numbers included in the recall.

The units are beige, and the model name is printed on the outside of the unit. The model number is located on the serial plate on the side of the unit.

A power interruption in the heat pump can result in the product providing heat when the power resumes, despite the thermostat being in cooling mode, posing a risk of excessive heat exposure to consumers.

So far, no incidents/injuries have been reported.

These units were sold at independent heating and cooling dealers from May 2022 through April 2024 for between $2200 and $5700.

They were manufactured in the United States and Thailand by Daikin Comfort Technologies Manufacturing LP (Houston, Texas) and Daikin Industries (Thailand) Ltd. of Thailand.

Are you affected? Daikin Comfort Technologies (DCT) is updating the software remotely for consumers whose Daikin FIT, Amana Brand S series, and Goodman SD heating and cooling heat pumps are connected to Wi-Fi. Consumers with heat pumps not connected to Wi-Fi should register for the recall.

N.B. The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold, or even given away in Canada.
