American Honda recalls portable generators

Heavy-duty equipment recalls are some of the most important to take notice of. As of December 21st, 2017, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a statement recalling the American Honda portable generator due to a defect that can cause gasoline to leak from the hose, posing a fire hazard.

The leak increases the risk of a fire starting within the component. Although the media has not reported on any burn injuries related to the generator as of this writing, it is still critical to remain vigilant and take your generator back to the supplier if you have one. 

Which generators have the recall notice?

If you have purchased a Honda portable gasoline generator within the last couple of years, then you need to check the model number. Units with a model number of either EB2800i or EG2800i need to go back to the supplier. All of the recalled generators have a black frame with a red front cover. The serial number range for the EB2800i is EAAA -1000037 through 1015421. Meanwhile, the range for the EG2800i goes from EABA -2000047 to 2020152. These generators were in production from July 29th, 2016, until September 20th, 2017, so if you bought your generator between that time period, then you need to return it. 

What is the remedy?

Honda recommends consumers to halt using the generators immediately and to get in touch with a local Honda Power Equipment dealer. The people there will conduct a free inspection and repair the generator at no cost. As of this writing, there have been 38 reports of the hose leaking. There have not been any injuries reported yet. Anyone who wants to learn more about the recall can contact Honda at 888-888-3139. This line remains open between 8:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

Do not put yourself and anyone else in your household or at your business in harm's way. Burn injuries are serious matters, so make sure your generator receives the necessary repairs.
