Aprilaire Model 5000 Air Cleaner Recall Information

Research Products Corporation has determined that the plastic inner housing and chipboard edge in the filter media of the Aprilaire Model 5000 Electronic Air Cleaner may pose a fire hazard. Owners of the Model 5000 should immediately unplug or shut off the unit. Research Products Corporation has voluntarily notified and are working with the C.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on this issue. No other Aprilaire products are affected.

To eliminate the possible fire hazard, their engineers have developed a new, easy-to-install, flame-retardant inner housing and filter media that they will ship directly to homeowners.

If you have any questions, please call Aprilaire at 800-931-0014.
