WASHINGTON (AP) -- American Honda Motor is recalling more than 18,000 snow blowers due to a potential fire hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the snow blowers were sold nationwide.

No fires have been reported, but the company has received 90 reports of fuel either seeping or dripping. The fuel tank joint and O-ring on the fuel tank's underside can allow fuel to escape fuel over time.
The devices were sold at Honda Power Equipment dealers from April 2005 through November. The prices ranged from about $2,000 to $3,400.

American Honda says customers should immediately stop using the snow blowers and bring them to a dealer for a free fuel tank joint and o-ring replacement.

Snow blowers involved in the recall contain model number HS724 with frame serial number SZBE-1037913 through 1046577; model number HS928 with frame serial number SZAS-1151080 through 1169012 and model number HS1132 with frame serial number SZBF-1018734 through 1025998. The model numbers can be found on the side of the front scoop. Frame serial numbers are located on the rear of the snow blower just below the engine.
