Urgent recall on sleeper cab heater option
The type of Icepack unit involved

 

A recall notice is issued over a potentially deadly weakness in Haultech Engineering’s Icepack Electric Heater option for the Icepack ES Sleeper Cab Air Conditioner

The notice relates to units sold between April 30, 2018 and April 30, this year.

The units involve a "heater installed into the sleeper cabin of trucks to heat the sleeper cab while the truck is not operating", the notice states.

"The electronic relay located in the front of the evaporator assembly may fail.

"Gas and smoke may accumulate within the sleeper compartment and may present a risk of poisoning or smoke inhalation, which could cause serious illness, injury or death."

Owners are advised strongly to stop using the Icepack Electric Heater function and contact an authorised Icepack repair agent to arrange for the electronic relay to be replaced with a mechanical solenoid, free of charge.

For more information or to locate an authorised dealer, owners can phone 1800 625 746 or visit http://www.icepack.com.au.
