Defective Furnaces

This is a settlement for the Defective Product lawsuit.

Washington, DC: (Jan-04-08) A class action lawsuit was filed against Carrier Corporation, alleging that Carrier Corporation brands Bryant, Payne, and Day & Night furnaces were defective. Sources close to the case stated that the company had reached a settlement agreement to resolve the class action. Under the agreement, anyone with a Carrier Corporation furnace manufactured after Jan. 1, 1989 in their home or business could now be eligible for benefits extending from the settlement. At the heart of the dispute was that investigations had revealed that a component in the furnaces could crack and release carbon monoxide. Under the agreement, Carrier is offering owners compensation for repairs or credit to put toward a replacement furnace. [CHANNEL 3000 NEWS: DEFECTIVE FURNACES]

Our furnace heat exchanger went out yesterday Jan.6th,2018. Company wants to put an entire new furnace in. At their cost of course. I'm wondering why the heat exchanger cannot be replaced with a new one. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I bought a Carrier furnace in 2009. The heat exchanger cracked in 2016, costing $3,500 in labor cost not covered by the warranty. Seems like a defective dedign problem. Is there a way to claim labor costs to repair against Carrier?

I bought a new Carrier high efficiency hvac in 2006. Since, the blower motor and coil, two very ecpensive parys, had to be replaced. This cannot be normal.
