Briggs & Stratton recall

Just a post to remind anyone with a Snow Thrower, that has certain Briggs & Stratton OHV Snow Thrower Engines sold from June 2000 through February 2007 , that there's a recall out that states:


Hazard: When the engines are primed, excess fuel can overflow into the carburetor and ignite, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

I have a 2 year old Craftsman that applies. This link lists the snowblower model and serial identification numbers:

Just wondering if anyone had the recall performed yet, and if so how long does it take to do?

sorry I can't give you any good answers, and you've probably already done this, but have you contaced sears? If I'm not mistaken it's their store brand, and they've been around for a while, so their customer service manager (maybe not a regular clerk) should have a pretty good idea of the turnaround time. Probably worth a call to them if you haven't already. good luck :thumbsup:

Hi joeyboy,

Thanks. I decided to have the recall done.
I called Sears with my model/serial numbers, and it was on the list. So Sears sent the parts to my house, and I have a tech coming here in October to do the work.
I thought that service was cool. At least I don't have to bring the snow thrower to them. :cool2:

I always fill out those warranty cards that come with the equipment I buy. That's how I heard about the recall.
Not sure what someone would have to do if they buy the equipment second hand, or didn't fill out the warranty info.
