Bosch Thermotechnology is recalling approximately 170 oil-condensing boilers due to carbon monoxide poisoning hazards posed by the product. The recall involves the Buderus GB125-35 oil-condensing boilers, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
According to the CPSC, the siphon on the boiler can become blocked, leading to delayed ignition that can damage the boiler's exhaust system, creating a carbon monoxide hazard. The boilers have a blue enclosure and the GB125-35 model number is located on the data plate near the top right-hand side of the boiler. The Buderus brand name is printed on the outside of the boiler's blue enclosure.
The boiler was sold by wholesale distributors and installed by independent contractors nationwide from June 2008 through September 2012, according to the CPSC. Consumers with the boilers should immediately contact the manufacturer for a free repair of the boiler and consumers who continue to use the boiler are advised to have a working carbon monoxide alarm installed outside of sleeping areas in the home.
