Rheem is recalling Rheem, Ruud and United Refrigeration Oil-Fired Furnaces sold nationwide from January 2006 to December 2008. If the furnace is not properly wired, the oil burner can continue to operate when the blower shuts off, posing a fire hazard.

Only the models beginning with the model numbers listed in the chart below and with date codes ending in 0106 through 5206, 0107 through 5207, or 0108 through 4808 are included in this recall. The model number and date code (designated by the four digits following an "M" in the middle of the serial number) are printed on the unit's rating plate, which is on the left wall of the furnace's interior just above the burner.
