What’s the Problem?
This CPSC Recall affects:
- Valor H5 propane gas fireplace model 1150ILP with serial numbers ranging from 20001 through 20365
- Valor H5 propane gas fireplace model 1150JLP with serial numbers ranging from 20366 through 21502
The recall was issued over concerns that delayed ignition due to pilot degradation can cause gas in the fireplace to accumulate prior to burner ignition, CPSC said. When ignition takes place, it can cause the glass window to shatter, posing burn and laceration hazards.
CPSC has received at least 1 report of delayed ignition in the U.S.
The recalled fireplaces were manufactured by Miles Industries Ltd., of Canada, and sold at Southern Fireplaces & More, Custom Hearth, On Fire, Abercrombie & Co., Southern Hearth & Patio stores and other Specialty Hearth stores from July 2014 through March 2020 for between $3,700 and $5,500.
Consumers who purchased a recalled gas fireplace should stop using it and contact their Valor fireplace retailer or contractor for a free repair.
The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 20-768.
