Honda Recalls Over 200,000 Portable Generators

The EU2200i, EU2200i Companion, and EB2200i Portable Generators have been recalled due to fire and burn hazards.

American Honda has recalled more than 200,000 portable generators due to fire and burn hazards. The recall involves the Honda EU2200i, EU2200i Companion, and EB2200i Portable Generators, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Honda advises customers to immediately stop using the recalled generators and contact a local authorized Honda Power Equipment service dealer to schedule a free repair. The CPSC reports that Honda is contacting all known purchasers directly.

The generators were sold February 2018 through February 2019.

What is the problem?

In some EB2200i and EU2200i generators, the screws used to assemble the fuel valve may loosen during use allowing the valve to leak fuel. If gasoline or gasoline vapors leak, a fire or explosion could occur.

A fuel leak caused by this issue typically is identified by a strong smell before, during, or after operation, or the presence of fuel underneath the generator.

What should you do?

If you own an EB2200i or EU2200i generator, you will need to check to see if the serial number is within the affected serial number range and has not been previously repaired. If it is within the affected range and has not been previously repaired, stop using your generator until it has been repaired by an authorized Honda dealer. Also:

·         If your generator was registered with American Honda and is affected, you will receive a letter.

·         If your generator was not registered with American Honda, contact your Honda Power Equipment servicing dealer.
