You should note that it only effects model EU 2000i with serial numbers between EAAJ-2260273 and EAAJ-2485025

Thanks for the head's up. I passed this along to a friend who also has a Honda 2000. Tomorrow I'll check my serial number.

Re: Honda 2000 generator recalled

right you are, jeremiason. i should have made that clear in my original post. i apologize for frightening all 2000i owners when only some of them are involved.

i myself have owned a 1000 for several years and swear by it....

Re: Honda 2000 generator recalled

Where is the S/N typically located on the unit? Mine is currently some distance away.

EDIT...never mind!

What to do if you have one of these units? simply check connection and adjust?

Re: Honda 2000 generator recalled

You're supposed to send it to a Honda depot for free repair, but frankly, it doesn't sound like a difficult fix.

My S/N is below 200000, so I'm good.
