Powermate Sx 5500 Gas Powered Electric Generator recall announced - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - Around 7,700 Powermate Sx 5500 portable generators are being voluntarily recalled due a leaking fuel filter that could cause a fire. The generators were sold exclusively at Home Depot stores in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast United States between February 2012 and August 2012 at a price of around $550. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) made the recall announcement today.

A China company, Am Pride Chongqing Senci IMP & EXP Trade Co., manufactured the generators. Pramac America LLC, based out of Kearney, Nebraska, was the importer of the recalled products. Pramac received 51 reports from consumers of the fuel filter leaking. While the leaking fuel could cause a fire, no fires or injuries were reported to the company.

The gas powered portable generators have two wheels and a handle bar that folds down. The words “Powermate 5500” are printed on the side. The generator is black with a red metal tube frame. The model name is Sx5500 and the model number is PM0125500. Both of these numbers are printed on a plate that is fixed to the back of the generator. The serial numbers involved in the recall range from K003xxxxxQ through K090xxxxxQ. The ‘x’ represents various numbers.

Consumers who have the recalled generator should not use them until they can get a free repair kit from Pramac America. The free repair kit includes a replacement filter, hose, and fuel line hose clamps.

Pramac America LLC can be contacted toll-free at (800) 445-1805 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. More information is available as a PDF document posted at the company’s website at http://www.powermate.com/generators/ServiceNotification.pdf.
