Carrier Guam Has Recalled Room Air Conditioners

Tamuning, Guam  (SafetyAlerts) - Carrier Guam has recalled about 2,100 window air conditioners. Salty sea spray can cause the electrical capacitor within these units to corrode, posing a possible fire hazard.

Carrier Guam has not received any reports of fires as a result of corrosion in these air conditioners.

These are 7,000 BTU window air conditioners with model number 77ZFA007101. The recalled air conditioners have a serial number within the following ranges:

4895Y10001 to 4895Y10300
2196Y10001 to 2196Y10300

1697Y20873 to 1697Y21072
2097Y21165 to 2097Y21464
2997Y20457 to 2997Y20656

The model and serial numbers are located on the top of the plastic evaporator scroll behind the unit's front plastic grill. "Carrier" is written on the front of these units.

The Carrier Guam store in Tamuning, Guam, sold these air conditioners from October 1995 through July 1997 for about $380.

Consumers with one of these recalled air conditioners should call Carrier Guam at (877) 467-3544 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Guam time Monday through Friday. Carrier Guam will schedule a free inspection and repair visit. Alternatively, consumers may elect to purchase a brand new unit at half price to replace the old unit
