WASHINGTON - Diamond Coach Corp. is recalling 1,320 model-year 2006-2010 buses because of a potential fire risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The recall covers IBD, PS, PT and VIP models that are equipped with Carrier GENV EM-1 evaporator units. Over time, the fuse may loosen in the fuse holder, resulting in high resistance and arcing. If enough arcing occurs, the fuse holder may melt and create a fire risk.
Diamond Coach will notify bus owners of the recall and inform them how to obtain the retrofit kit from Carrier along with repair instructions.
Bus owners can contact Carrier at (800) 793-4741.
