This recall expansion includes certain units manufactured between January 2019 and February 2020 that were incorrectly marked.

DCT recently discovered that a limited number of evaporator coils that were manufactured during that time frame were incorrectly marked with a 2018 serial number, indicating that the unit was manufactured in 2018. The recall scope now includes about 3,600 additional units with the following configurations and coil serial numbers, as shown in the table below:


Coil Configuration

Affected Furnace Brands

Affected Coil Serial Numbers

Dates Sold

Condensing furnace system


(Coil above Furnace)


Prefixes ranging from 1901 through 2101 and certain prefixes ranging from 1811-1812

Prefixes ranging from 1901 through 2101

 and certain prefixes ranging from 1811-1812

NOTE:  Furnace systems that were repaired with a new evaporator coil drain pan between January 2019 and November 2021, with the serial number range listed above, are also included in this recall. Whether a non-condensing furnace system falls within the scope of the recall depends on the location of the burners, which, if unknown, can be verified through DCT’s model verification tool at:

Affected units can be identified through serial numbers found on the evaporator coil or the case, which sits atop the vertically installed furnace. The furnace brand and model number can be found on the furnace on the “Energy Guide” label. Consumers can refer to the instructions on Goodman’s model verification tool at:

The model number of the outdoor condenser may also be required and can be found on a label attached to the product.


DCT has received a total of 31 reports of fire involving the drain pans, including five reports since the recall was reannounced in July 2022. The incidents resulted in one reported smoke inhalation and several reports of significant fire and smoke damage to residences.
