Viessmann U.S. Recalls Boilers Due to Fire Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Viessmann Manufacturing Co. Inc., of Canada, have announced a voluntary recall of the Vitodens 200 boilers due to fire hazards.

The recall involves approximately 4,600 of the white, wall-mounted, gas-fired boilers. The boiler can leak gas, posing a fire hazard to consumers. No incidents or injuries were reported. "Viessmann" and "Vitodens 200" are printed on the exterior of the boilers in silver letters. The model and serial numbers included in the recall are listed below:

Model Number Serial Number Additional Information
WB2 6-24C 7167063xxxxxxxxx or 7170317xxxxxxxxx If the serial number’s 8th digit
(listed in red) is a 2, 3, 4, 5 or

The model number is located on the silver rating plate on the side of the boiler. Contact your certified HVAC contractor to open the boiler and locate the serial number on a white label on the side of the boiler, or under the bottom support panel. Vitodens 100 boilers are not included in this recall.

The boilers were manufactured in Canada and sold by plumbing and heating contractors nationwide from January 2002 through December 2007 for between $4,000 and $7,500.

Consumers should stop using the boilers immediately, weather permitting, and contact their certified heating contractor or Viessmann for a free replacement of the boiler's O-ring.
