Honda Recalls Two Portable Generators | OPE News
340,000 EB2200i and EU2200i Generators Affected
Honda just released news that the American branch of the brand has issued a recall of around 340,000 EB2200i and EU2200i portable generators. These 2200 watt 120V industrial inverter generators have both been discovered to have a possible defect, and Honda will begin recall inspections and repairs on March 23, 2020.
In the affected generators, water may enter an electrical connection on the inverter behind the control panel, potentially causing a short circuit or fire during operation. Honda tells us that, while all of the EB2200i and EU220i model generators are affected, the risk becomes much higher in applications or regions where salt water is present. Honda advises that customers desist in using these models until they can be inspected and repaired by local Honda servicing technicians.
The inspection and repair are free and will start on March 23 as repair parts become available.
To find out if your generator is affected by the recall, contact the American Honda Customer Relations Department at 888-888-3139, option 4. For any information regarding where you can find your local Honda Power Equipment dealer, visit the website at Powerequipment.honda.com.
