The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled Honda snowblowers because the fuel tank joint and o-ring located on the underside of the fuel tank can seep or drip fuel over time, posing a fire hazard.
This recall comes after Honda received 90 reports of fuel seeping or dripping. No fires or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Honda snowblowers with model numbers and frame serial numbers listed below:
Model Frame Serial Number
HS724 SZBE-1037913 through 1046577
HS928 SZAS-1151080 through 1169012
HS1132 SZBF-1018734 through 1025998
The snowblowers are red and black. The frame serial number is located on the rear of the machine just below the engine. The name Honda and the model number are located on the side of the front scoop.
Consumers should stop using the recalled snowblowers and contact a Honda Power Equipment dealer to arrange for a free fuel tank joint and o-ring replacement. Registered owners of the recalled snowblowers will be mailed a notice.
