“The electronic start/stop button on the pressure washer can malfunction and self-start, posing a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if the unit is in a confined space,” CPSC said. “The firm has received nine reports of the pressure washers self-starting and operating without being connected to a water supply.”

The electric start pressure washers have an electric start/stop button for the unit’s gasoline-powered engines, as well as a rechargeable battery used to power the button. The model and serial numbers are printed on a label located on the product’s frame.

The recalled pressure washers were sold online and at major home improvement and hardware stores nationwide including Ace Hardware, Amazon, City Electric Supply, Costco, Do It Best, eBay, Essendant, Fastenal, Home Depot, Lowe’s Stores, Menard’s, Orgill, Power Equipment Direct, Ravitsky Bros., Tractor Supply, True Value, and Walmart from February 2018 through February 2022 for between $450 and $650.

If you purchased a pressure washer that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately unless you have removed the rechargeable battery, and contact Generac to arrange to have an authorized dealer replace the start/stop switch on the pressure washer free of charge. The pressure washer can continue to be used with the battery removed but using the pull-start option to start the unit.

This recall began on April 28, 2022.

The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 22-127.
