Products Liability > Coleman Heaters

Coleman entered the market in 1980s when there were many other manufacturers already making heaters. However, the heaters manufactured by other makers are not linked a huge amount of Carbon monoxide events. Coleman is of course the industry leader in Carbon monoxide deaths.

Coleman is the foremost name in outdoor camping equipment, lanterns, stoves and heaters. Coleman sold more than a million propane tank top heaters between 1985 and 2005 without oxygen exhaustion sensors or CO protection plans. From 1984 to 1996, the company sold the propane-heating units under the name Focus heaters, and marketed them primarily to campers. Coleman promoted the BTU output capability of some of the heaters in 1996, named PowerMates, and sold them as industrial heaters.

Coleman heaters have lately been connected to many carbon monoxide deaths. Two product liability lawsuits were filed on December 14, 2006 alleging that Coleman PowerMate 5045 propane heater is the main cause that led to the death of five people.

PowerMate 5045 propane heaters produce carbon monoxide. More than one million of the hazardous heaters sold by Coleman remain in use by the public all over the world.

The first Coleman heater deaths were reported in 1991. Two grown-ups and four children in Massachusetts died while resting in a tent where a small Focus 5 propane heater was running. A federal board of judges in Miami ordered Coleman Company to pay a Lake Worth, Florida, woman $10.1 million in damages on June 29, 2005. This was relating to an out of order propane heater, which killed her husband and son in 1999.

Coleman has been connected to 65-70 deaths and more than 10 injuries caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. In this, 18 deaths were linked to their Powermate models. Despite all these incidents, Coleman still has not recalled its propane heaters. So, the CO deaths connected to Coleman heater can be expected in the future as well.
