Suburban gas hot water heaters - serious


A CO issue has caused these heaters to be the subject of a "don't use" notice - see attached.

NB. The affected heaters have been manufactured over the past year of so, older ones are fine.

Question, Why don`t gas stoves in caravans create the same issue? They burn the same gas.

The problem detected in the Suburban units is that the flue duct doesn't effectively remove noxious gasses produced. Note all gas appliances in caravans (or homes for that matter) must only be used with adequate ventilation. Strongly suggest that all caravans be fitted with a carbon monoxide detector and alarm, note that is additional to smoke alarm (which won't detect Carbon Monoxide).
