Fuel Oil Safety Valves Recalled

Owners of the valves are asked to immediately contact R.W. Beckett, which is based in Ridgeville, Ohio, for a free repair kit or a replacement valve and free installation.

About 18,000 units of R.W. Beckett's Firomatic® fusible safety valves have been recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced March 10, because their safety valve stem does not properly seal and shut off the flow of fuel, allowing fuel to leak and posing a fire hazard.

Owners of the valves are asked to immediately contact R.W. Beckett, which is based in Ridgeville, Ohio, for a free repair kit or a replacement valve and free installation. They can call 800-645-2876 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time weekdays or to visit www.beckettcorp.com and click on Support/Technical Bulletins for more information.

The recall involves Firomatic ½-inch FPT Fusible Safety Valves series 200 Fusible Inline valve, 1/2F X 1/2F Out. The valves are located on the fuel lines that lead to oil-burning appliances and have a UL metal ring on top of the body of the valve stamped with "FIROMATIC SERIES 200." The word "Firomatic" is cast into the body of the recalled valves.

According to the CPSC announcement, no injuries have been reported.

Made in China, the recalled valves were sold by HVAC wholesale distributors including Ferguson Enterprises, FW Webb, Johnstone Supply, RE Michel Co, and Sid Harvey Industries nationwide and from September 2011 through September 2016 for about $40.
