    Quattro Gas Furnaces

    Can anyone direct me to the real story on Quattro Gas Furnaces. I heard they went out of business due to a lawsuit in California. Is this true?

    Consolidated made the furnaces in the recall. They are not the same furnaces as the Quattro. The design of the Quattro and the 90 are still made today by Texas Furnace.

    Those things were the biggest POS ever, even without the NOx rods. More than half of the bad HX I have found were in the non CA version of those furnaces, with no NOx rods.
    I think the NOx rods just made them more prone to belching fire out the sides, the actual HX failure rate was probably about the same as without the rods.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    This is from memory, and what I can recall, so all may not be factual.

    Quatro was made by Consolidated industries, I think around Indiana.

    I was told that the issue was the blower wheel housing that did them in.

    Consolidated went up for Auction, Texas Furnace bought all the machinery from the plant and shipped it to Texas.

    Texas furnace will still supply parts (and expect to pay) however, heat exchangers are no longer available.

    I thought their new line was named Meridian, however, that was some time ago and it could of changed by now.
