Generac Portable Generator Product Recall

An emergency generator is invaluable during a power outage. However, these unwieldy machines can do more harm than good if used without the right care — or if manufacturers fail to properly safety-check their products.

One popular brand of home generators, Generac, is currently the subject of a recall after a design flaw caused several consumers to sustain serious injuries. According to the recall notice issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a number of Generac’s 6500- and 8000-watt generators contain a defective pin-lock handle that’s been known to crush users’ fingers against the generator frame when the generator is moved. Of the eight injuries reported at the time of recall, seven have resulted in finger amputations and one in finger crushing. Generac has responded by offering a free repair kit to affected consumers, but this is only a band-aid solution to a much deeper problem: an organization that is acting irresponsibly and flooding the market with dangerous products. With more than 320,000 defective generators sold in the U.S. alone, Generac is gambling with the health of its many thousands of customers.

Product liability laws exist to protect consumers from the consequences of an unsafe product and hold culpable organizations to account for their actions. Generac’s negligence during the product testing phase and weak response to the recall is not your burden to bear. The manufacturer is liable for any harm its products cause once they are sold, and you’re entitled to pursue legal action should you suffer at the hands of one of its defective products. 

While a lawsuit won’t reverse the damage, it will set an example for other organizations to follow and protect innocent consumers in the process. Our industry-leading attorneys are experts in the field of product liability law and will be able to deliver the best results in your case. If one of Generac’s products causes you harm, Morgan & Morgan is ready to take your call and help you achieve success in your legal challenge.

  • Are Portable Generators Dangerous?

    Portable generators pose several risks if used improperly. These include carbon monoxide poisoning, electrocution, contact burns, crushing hazards, and fires. In the case of certain Generac models, defective design properties have led to the crushing and amputation of users’ fingers when the generator is being moved.

  • Which Generac Products Are Considered Dangerous?

    The recall involves 6500- and 8000-watt Generac portable generating of the following unit types:

    • XT8000E
    • XT8000EFI
    • GP6500
    • GP6500E
    • GP8000E
    • HomeLink 6500E
    • PRO 6500M
    • PRO 6500E

    If you own one of these products, stop using it immediately, unless the locking pin has been inserted to secure the handle before and after moving the generator. You should also contact Generac for a free repair kit.

  • Can a Lawyer Help With an Unsafe Product?

    While legal action won’t reverse your injuries, it will force the at-fault organization to answer for its actions and help recover some of the damages suffered in monetary value. An experienced attorney will take the lead in any legal proceedings and work hard to secure the best compensation package possible.
