Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Lawn Mowers are subject to this recall:

  • Husqvarna LC 141Li Lawn Mowers, battery operated lawn mowers sold with a serial number ranging from 20173200001 to 20183200144

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the ACCC, when the Lawn Mowers is in use, a short circuit in the electronic system may occur which could be caused by a possibly defective transistor in the motor control. This short circuit leads to the failure of the device and restart attempts will be unsuccessful.

If this occurs and the operator places the Lawn Mower in a garage or storeroom and does not comply with the operating instructions by removing the battery, and turning the safety key to “0” or removing the key completely, the short circuit may persist resulting in increased electrical current flowing into an adjacent component. If so, the adjacent component may subsequently overheat and catch on fire.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Lawn Mowers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to your local authorised Husqvarna dealers for repairs.

Always use appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) when working with Lawn Mowers fixtures, including gloves, protective eyewear and protective footwear.
