A short circuit could occur in the equipment electronics

Husqvarna is recalling 31 walk-behind mowers sold in Canada.

A short circuit could occur in the equipment electronics during use or storage of these lawnmowers. If the operator does not follow the operating instructions after an unsuccessful restart attempt, the short circuit in the motor control unit may result in increased electrical currents flowing into a nearby component. This poses a risk of the component to overheat or burn, or cause a potential fire.

There are no reports of incidents or injuries

This recall involves two walk behind mowers both within the serial number range 201731xxxxx – 201841xxxxx:

  • Husqvarna LE116P Model 967628404 push mower
  • Husqvarna LE116R Model 967820601 self-propelled mower

The mowers have an orange body with black accents; Husqvarna is written in white on the side. The white Husqvarna logo is located on the top of the orange motor cover.

The model and serial numbers can be found on the label located on the mower deck shell, rear-right side near the discharge door.

The mowers, manufactured in China, were sold from September 2017, to October 2018.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mowers and contact the place of purchase or their nearest Husqvarna dealer to arrange for a free repair.
