Health Canada has issued a recall for Valor H5 series fireplaces due to risk of breaking glass that can cause a laceration.
This recall involves propane H5 Series Fireplace models 1150ILP and 1150JLP with various trims.
In the Valor H5 Series fireplaces, component degradation may cause a delay in the main burner ignition.
The pressure from this delayed ignition can then cause the glass front to break, posing a laceration hazard, Health Canada says.
There have been four reports of delayed ignition, two reports of the fireplace glass shattering in Canada, and one report of glass hitting an individual’s leg.
Consumers should stop using the affected fireplaces and contact the dealer where the fireplace was purchased to schedule a service or replacement.
The recalled fireplaces were sold in Canada and the United States from July 2014 to March 2020.
The manufacturer, Miles Industries, can also be contacted at at 866-420-3360 or by email at H5@valorfireplaces.com.
