SAFETY AND EMISSIONS

RECALL NOTICE

EU2000i Portable Generators

FUEL TUBE LEAK

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

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled generator and contact

a Honda Power Equipment dealer to have it inspected/repaired free of charge.

What is the problem?

A tube clamp that connects a fuel tube to the bottom of the fuel tank may have been improperly positioned

during assembly, and use of the generator may cause the clamp to wear a hole into an adjacent fuel tube. If the fuel tube is worn sufficiently, gasoline and gasoline vapors may leak out and a fire or explosion could occur.

What should you do?

Stop using any generator within the affected serial number range until it has been repaired. Please contact a

servicing Honda Power Equipment dealer to make an appointment to have your generator inspected and if

necessary repaired, free of charge. If you need assistance locating a servicing dealer, please visit our website:

www.PowerEquipment.Honda.com, or call us at our recall line (888) 888-3139.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission,

California Air Resources Board, and the Environmental Protection Agency
