Toronto, ON — A recall has been issued on Laars’ Mini-Therm JX gas-fired residential atmospheric boilers — models JX050 and JX075 — by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA).
The recall has been issued due to the original mounting position of the blocked vent switch not allowing for the boiler to switch off in a timely manner during a blocked vent condition. This poses a carbon monoxide poisoning hazard.
The affected boilers are grey in colour and include a front display panel with Laars Mini-Therm JX on a black and orange coloured nameplate or label. The affected units’ serial numbers range from V21306297 to V22311517.
As of June 7, Laars has received no reports of blocked vent switch failures in Canada, nor reports of any injuries. The company has received no reports of blocked vent switch failures and no injuries.
