Heil Heat exchanger recall


How can I find out if my Heil unit has a recall on the heat exchanger? It was installed in 1999. The flame roll out switch is tripping but there is no noticable change in flame when fan starts. Ive done a lot of searching on line and there seems to be a consensus that there was / is a recall on HE. Thanks Hammy

There is no RECALL on the heat exchanger. A lot of them fail from the furnace being overfired (gas pressure too high) or lack of airflow etc. You need to get an experienced ICP, Heil tech to check the unit and find out why it is tripping. The heat exchanger has a warranty but the labor to replace it is not covered.

Thanks for the info on the over fire of the unit. Is there any visual signs of it over firing. Damage etc. ( just for my information?) Hammy

Unfortunately not. The flame can be blue, it is just too big. Gas pressure and temp rise etc needs to be checked by a Pro.

I think this over pressure might be my original problem. Hammy
