Is your water heater affected?

DEFECT A component of the water heater may be improperly manufactured and allow carbon monoxide into your caravan, motorhome or horse float camper.

HAZARD Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas and can cause serious illness, injury or death. Carbon monoxide has no smell or taste, is highly flammable and can only be detected with a carbon monoxide alarm. Loss of consciousness can occur within minutes and death can occur within hours.

WHAT TO DO Consumers who have not already had their unit inspected must not use the affected water heater in gas mode under any circumstances, even if they have a carbon monoxide detector.

The remedy for this recall was updated on 29 January 2024.

An inspection is no longer required, all affected water heaters that have not already been inspected will be replaced for free.
