Gas Heater Safety Alert – Cannon inbuilt gas heaters

Cannon & Energy Safe Victoria have recently issued a safety alert for Cannon Fitzroy and Cannon Canterbury inbuilt gas heaters

“A safety alert has been issued relating to Cannon Fitzroy and Canterbury inbuilt gas heaters built between 20 March 2001 and 8 October 2009.

Laboratory testing suggests that it may be possible that Cannon Fitzroy or Canterbury inbuilt gas heaters built between 20 March 2001 and 8 October 2009 under AGA Approval 6118 could produce potentially hazardous levels of carbon monoxide if the heater is subjected to certain conditions, including the operation of rangehoods and other exhaust fans.  This risk may be increased if the inbuilt heater has not been installed properly, or if it has not been serviced regularly, or if your house is tightly sealed.

The build date and AGA Approval number of the heater appear on the heater’s ratings label, which is located within the lower fan chamber, and which a suitably qualified person can access by removing the lower fascia panel of the heater.

If you think you have one of these inbuilt gas heaters, you should not use it until you have had it checked by an authorised Cannon service technician to ensure that the operation of exhaust fans or the installation of the heater does not affect the safety of your heater.  You or your technician should call Cannon on 1800 035 410  with any questions or concerns.”


Don’t risk it.  Have your gas heaters serviced and safety checked.
