Another recall on an Amana made PTAC huh.......
I see alot of problems with Amana PTAC's. Mostly the GFCI on the cord wears out (alot)and problems with the digital control board. Ive seen some of the cords where the GFCI's actually melt. Not suprised about the recall.
It was just posted as an FYI, anyone who has one should look into it!
