March 18, 2020 — Honda recalled 340,000 portable generators after 10 fires were reported.
This recall involves Honda EB2200i, EU2200i, EU2200i Companion and EU2200i Camo portable generators.
About 200,000 of the generators were previously recalled in 2019 due to a fire hazard posed by gasoline leaking from the fuel valve.
Honda is recalling those generators again, plus another 140,000, after 13 reports of a short-circuit in the generator’s inverter assembly while the generator is in use. The short-circuit occurs in the presence of salt-water, which can cause the generator to smoke or catch on fire.
No injuries or property damage were reported.
They were sold at Honda Power Equipment Dealers, The Home Depot and other home improvement stores nationwide, and online between February 2018 and January 2020 for $1,100 to $1,300.
