General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of P.R.C (AQSIQ) released a notice on its website on Nov 22, 2016, announcing Ariston Thermo Group’s decision to recall some defective water heaters manufactured from Sep 16, 2009 to February 13, 2014. In Chinese mainland, 164,310 units are expected to be recalled, involving 9 models and 5 specifications. Ariston has filed its recall plan to AQSIQ.
Ariston recalls these water heaters for their risks of slightly cracking under extreme or certain condition. Two options are offered by Ariston to consumers involved: they could either have their defective water heaters repaired by Ariston free of charge, or returns them back to Ariston and buy a new water heater of appointed model at discount by Dec 31, 2017.
