Robertshaw Controls Company, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), is instituting a recall of certain models of gas valves in the R110 series. The R110 Series gas control valves that are being recalled are installed in natural and liquid propane (LP) gas water heaters.
Electric water heaters are not affected. The recalled valves were manufactured between July 25, 2005 and August 14, 2005. Thus, consumers who had gas water heaters installed or serviced prior to July 25, 2005 are unaffected. If your water heater was installed since July 25, 2005 or you have had it serviced since that date, it is possible that you may have an affected valve.

If you need further assistance, please call Robertshaw toll-free at 888-225-1071 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET, Monday through Saturday. Please have the model and serial numbers of your water heater ready when you contact Robertshaw.
Safety Precautions: As with any gas appliance, if you smell gas near your water heater or in the building, immediately leave the area and call your gas company or a certified gas technician to investigate the cause.
