SAFETY RECALL NOTICE

EB2200i • EU2200i Portable Generators
SHORT CIRCUIT

Check below to see if your generator is affected by this recall.

What is the problem?

In certain EB2200i and EU2200i generators operated under certain environmental conditions, water may enter into an electrical connection on the inverter (located behind the control panel) and cause a short circuit failure and/or fire. This concern predominantly occurs in applications or regions where salt water is present.

Symptoms of this concern are typically identified by the overload alarm flashing continuously, the smell of melting or burning plastic during or after operation, or the presence of smoke or fire.

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.

If you need assistance locating a servicing dealer, please visit our website: powerequipment.honda.com, or call us at our recall line (888) 888-3139, option 4.
