HOW DO YOU FIGURE THAT FURNACE WAS NEVER USED? YOU CAN SEE THE BLACK PIPE AND PRIMER FROM THE PVC WHERE IT WAST CUT OUT FROM IT'S FORMER LOCATION
Dont use that furnace if you value your life.
That may have FEDDERS mane on it but it was made by Consolidated Ind.
There is a court order removing them from service due to many defective parts:
Stefanyshyn v. Consolidated Industries
Tippecanoe County Superior Court
For the State of Indiana
Case No. 79 D 01-9712-CT-59
If you own or owned (or have claims regarding) a residential furnace, you could get a payment or other benefits from a class action settlement. A court authorized this website. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
UPDATE: As mentioned on this web site and elsewhere, the potential benefits available under the class action settlement depend, in part, on the availability of funds from the Consolidated bankruptcy estate. On February 6, 2009, the bankruptcy trustee for Consolidated entered into a settlement with Enodis Corporation and related persons and entities for $69.5 million plus interest until such amount is paid in full. To obtain a copy of the notice of motion and opportunity to object to the trustee's motion to approve the Enodis settlement, which could affect your rights, please click here
. Timely objections must be received by the bankruptcy court and by counsel by no later than March 5, 2009. If the bankruptcy court approves the Enodis settlement, it is likely that a portion of the proceeds will be available to fund the potential benefits under the class action settlement described on this web site.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit regarding furnaces manufactured by Consolidated Industries Corp. ("Consolidated") prior to January 1, 2001
. Most, if not all, of the furnaces manufactured by Consolidated contain one or more defective
parts, including the burner, heat exchanger, and/or expansion joints.
THE CONTINUED USE OF FURNACES COVERED BY THIS SETTLEMENT POSES A SERIOUS RISK OF FIRE AND/OR CARBON MONOXIDE LEAKS.
Prior to 2001, Consolidated manufactured furnaces under many different brand/trade names, including: ACPO, Addison, Air Star, Airco, Amana, American Best, American Standard, Arcoaire, Arkla, Armstrong, Bard, Carrier, Century, Climate Control, Comfort Aire, Coleman, Consolidated, Day & Night, Ducane, Duomatic-Olsen, Franklin Electric, Goettl, Goodman, GMC, Hamilton Electric, Heat Controller, Heatmaster, International Comfort Products, Janitrol, Johnstone, Keeprite, Kenmore, Lennox, Liberty, Magic Chef, Northrup, Olsen, Pameco-Aire, Payne, P.F.C., Premier, Sears, Square D, Sunbelt, Sunburst, Sundial, Sun Glow, Trane, Weatherking, York, and possibly others. If you have a furnace with any of these brand names, it might
be covered by this settlement. However, many of these companies also manufacture their own line of furnaces, which are not part of this lawsuit and are not covered by this settlement
