Kohler Power Systems Recalls 7,000 Generators

No injuries have been reported in connection with these generators, but consumers should immediately stop using the recalled generators and contact Kohler to schedule a free repair by the closest authorized dealer.

Kohler Power Systems has recalled about 7,000 portable generators because the units have a wiring error that can result in an electrical shock risk if an electrical device is plugged into the generator, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Aug. 9.

The recall involves these Kohler portable generator models: PRO3.7, PRO3.7E, PRO5.2, PRO5.2E, and GEN5.0 with Spec Number PA-GEN50-3003. They have black frame assemblies and blue fuel tanks; while the PRO3.7, PRO5.2, and GEN5.0 models have manual recoil start, the PRO3.7E and PRO5.2E have both manual recoil and electric start. Only generators with serial number 4528733735 or lower and a manufacture date prior to June 2016 are included in this recall. Model numbers, serial numbers, spec number and manufacturing date codes are on a silver label placed on each generator on the lower black frame assemblies.

Consumers who possess one of these models should contact Kohler Power Systems toll-free at 866-667-4835 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT weekdays, email generator.feedback@kohler.com, or visit http://power.kohler.com and click Contact Us on the upper-right side of that page.

About 230 of the units were sold in Canada, according to CPSC's announcement, which says the generators were sold by authorized Kohler distributors and dealers from June 2014 through May 2016 for between $740 and $1,400.

No injuries have been reported in connection with these generators, but consumers should immediately stop using the recalled generators and contact Kohler to schedule a free repair by the closest authorized dealer.
