Napoleon recalls propane gas fireplaces

June 26, 2014 | By HPAC Magazine

A joint recall with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Wolf Steel Ltd. has been issued for Napoleon GD3200 propane gas fireplaces model number GD3200-P flush glass front and GD3200B-P with bay window. The fireplace front panels are black with gold accent designs on the outside of the product. The model is identified on a rating label located on the base of the fireplace behind the lower access door.

According to the recall, issued June 26, 2014, there is a potential for the glass to break during the lighting of the pilot burner if there is a buildup of propane gas, posing a laceration hazard. Wolf Steel Ltd received one report in Canada of the glass shattering when lighting the pilot burner, resulting in cuts to the face and neck that required medical attention. No incidents or injuries were reported in the United States.

Approximately 2428 units of the recalled fireplaces were sold in Canada and approximately 614 units in the United States from August 1992 to May 2001.
