IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING
Grundfos has recently issued a safety warning about model of its CONLIFT pumps produced on or before week 47 in 2007. Pumps from that period may pose a dangerous fire risk under certain circumstances.
CONLIFT is a series of professional range compact condensate removal pumps that are installed both in commercial buildings and private households. These products are used where condensate cannot drain naturally or when the condensate source is located below the backwater level. The typical application is the removal of condensate from condensing boilers, chimneys, air-conditioning, dehumidifiers and refrigerators. Grundfos came to the conclusion that under certain conditions, including the use of household fuses above 10A, the motor of a prior model of the CONLIFT pump produced up until week 47/2007 (inclusive) may overheat, which may cause the pump to catch fire.
The product needs to be replaced when the date indicates 0747 or before (week 47 in 2007). See explanation and example above. For further product identification, end users can also contact their local installer.
