Truckers running the Webasto DBW 2010 coolant heater may
have a unit that is subject to a recent recall announced by the National
Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
The NHTSA-announced recall, which covers more than 10,000
units, says that certain coolant heaters made with Webasto burner tubes
manufactured between November 2002 and February 2005 have a stainless steel
burner tube that is made out of material that “is not to specification” and
could fail prematurely.
The recall notice says that should the burner tube fail, the
coolant heater could overheat and possibly result in a fire.
According to the recall, Webasto will notify its customers
and replace the affected burner tubes with new certified burner tubes at no
cost to the owner.
Owners who do not receive their free remedy within a
reasonable time should contact Webasto at (810) 593-6104.
