MADISON, Wis. -

Trane is recalling some air conditioning systems due to a possible shock hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission website, the Trane XB300 and American Standard Silver SI air conditioning systems are being recalled.

The ground screws used in some units do not have the two threads required to provide sufficient grounding, which poses a shock hazard to consumers, according to the recall posting.

No injuries associated with the possible hazard have been reported.

Thirty-seven models of the Trane XB300 and American Standard brand Silver SI split system outdoor cooling units have been recalled. The units are gray, have a black grated front, and were sold in two sizes – 25.5 inches deep by 23.5 inches wide by 28.83 inches tall and 28.83 inches deep by 28.48 inches wide by 29.28 inches tall.

The units were sold from February 2010 to March 2014.

According to the posting, consumers should immediately turn off the unit via the main breaker switch and check the model information. Consumers with recalled units should contact Trane or their installer for instructions on scheduling a free inspection and repair.

The Trane or American Standard logo is on the front and the model numbers are printed on the silver nameplate on the back of the unit. A full list of the models being recalled can be found on the CPSC website.
