Honda 2200 Watt generator recall

Just thought I'd re-post this for anyone having one. If they haven't contacted you get a hold of them before you use it or use it again.

We have been notified by AMERICAN HONDA that there may be a safety issue concerning several models of portable inverter generators.

The models and serial number ranges are listed below.

The inverter generators output 2200 watts and have a red outer casing with a black front plate. A picture is below.

FF SKU Numbers 101096090 & 101096091



Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Here's the recall info:

In some EB2200i and EU2200i generators, the screws used to assemble the fuel valve may loosen during use allowing the valve to leak fuel. If gasoline or gasoline vapors leak, a fire or explosion could occur.

Gents, my Honda dealer here in Ontario, confirmed yesterday that these units have been with drawn from the market, he didn't have an update on how long and offered that the 2500 has been greatly reduced to try and give customers a close option.

I would like to get a 2200 inverter for the noise level, I already have some larger models and a 1600 Coleman, so I looking for a quiet small one.

They don't build Honda's like they use to. It's sad what they are doing.

It's not the first time, unfortunately. There was a recall on my EU2000i as well. At least they're fixing it, and I still have faith in the products themselves.

The Japanese learned from a statistician and quality control expert, an American named Deming.

"Deming made a significant contribution to Japan's reputation for innovative, high-quality products, and for its economic power. He is regarded as having had more impact on Japanese manufacturing and business than any other individual not of Japanese heritage. Despite being honored in Japan in 1951 with the establishment of the Deming Prize, he was only just beginning to win widespread recognition in the U.S. at the time of his death in 1993." Wikipedia, 3/16/19

I think that the competition from cheaper goods has caused a decline in quality here. The acceptance of planned obsolescence, or planned failure rate over time has changed the quality of goods that we now purchase on the marketplace. A good example of this is washing machines. A lot of us can remember when washers lasted 20-30 years. Now, with planned obsolescence, they last 8-10 years.
