Description:

This recall expands the scope of a previous recall that involved certain evaporator coil drain pans installed with condensing gas furnaces in an up-flow coil configuration. The recall now also includes those drain pans installed with certain configurations of competitor branded (not Goodman, Daikin or Amana-branded) non-condensing residential gas furnaces in a vertical, or “up-flow,” coil configuration, as shown in the table below:

TypeCoil ConfigurationAffected Furnace BrandsAffected Coil Serial NumbersDates Sold
Condensing furnace systemUp-Flow (Coil above Furnace)  AllPrefixes ranging from 1901 through 2101Jan. 2019 through Nov. 2021
  Non-condensing furnace system (Certain configurations)  Up-Flow (Coil above Furnace)Any “competitor” brand (excludes Goodman, Daikin or Amana branded furnaces)  Prefixes ranging from 1901 through 2101  Jan. 2019 through Nov. 2021

NOTE:  Furnace systems that were repaired with a new evaporator coil drain pan between January 2019 and November 2021, with the serial number range listed above, are also included in this recall. Whether a non-condensing furnace system falls within the scope of the expanded recall depends on the location of the burners, which, if unknown, can be verified through DCT’s model verification tool at: https://www.recallrtr.com/drainpan.

Affected units can be identified through serial numbers found on the evaporator coil or the case, which sits atop the vertically installed furnace. The furnace brand and model number can be found on the furnace on the “Energy Guide” label. Consumers can refer to the instructions on DCT’s model verification tool at: https://www.recallrtr.com/drainpan.

The model number of the outdoor condenser may also be required and can be found on a label attached to the product.

Remedy:

Consumers should contact Daikin Comfort Technologies Manufacturing, L.P. (DCT) to determine whether your unit is included in this recall and to register for the free repair by a qualified technician. DCT is contacting all registered consumers where records indicate their gas furnace system is subject to the expanded recall.
