Briggs & Stratton Corp. has recalled an Ariens snow blower, the Ariens Snow-Thro 24-inch snow blower. Briggs & Stratton said the engine’s carburetor bowl nut can allow gas to escape from the unit, posing a fire hazard.
The recalled snow blower is 24 inches wide and comes in orange with black. Recalled items have the model number 920014 and serial numbers ranging from 100,000 through 119,039. The numbers can be found on an Ariens-brand label on the lower back panel of the product with the warranty code.
There is also a Briggs & Stratton engine model number 13D1370110 F1 labeled on the side of the engine with the serial number range from 12053000000 through 1207169999. Engines with a circular black marker dot located on the right side of the engine base, below the electric starter and just above the oil drain plug, have already been inspected and are not a part of the recall.
No accidents or injuries have been reported in connection with the possible hazard.
