Travelers Rest, SC—About 1,500 Sno-Trek snow blowers in the U.S. and 300 snow blowers in Canada were voluntarily recalled by Liquid Combustion Technology, LLC (LCT), the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada. The CPSC announced the recall on February 17, 2011.
The product recall was initiated after discovering that the snow blower’s engine is missing a safety shield above the side mounted electric starter, which poses a laceration hazard to consumer’s fingers.
“The recalled snow blowers have a LCT StormForce engine with ‘Sno-Tek’ printed across a metal handlebar plate. Snow blowers with model numbers 920402 and 920403 and UPC codes 5105803094 and 5105803095 are included in this recall. Only snow blowers with engine model number PW1HK18650781DE-ABGOQUVE1M with serial numbers ranging from 1065H04008325A through 1065H04012104A are affected by this recall. The product model number and UPC codes are printed on a label attached to the outside of the gear box near the left wheel,” reported the CPSC press release.
Consumers are advised to contact LCT for a free repair kit and installation instructions. Consumers can also return them to an authorized LCT service center location for a free repair. LCT’s Service Network toll free number is (800) 558-5402.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact LCT at (800) 552-8094 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.LCTUSA.com
