Harbor Freight Tools

Harbor Freight Tools is planning to recall 295,000 fuse sets that may be linked to electrical fires. The Chinese made after market fuse sets, which were supposed to be 5-30 amps, apparently had the wrong amperages, which can lead to damage to a vehicle's wiring system. Harbor Freight stopped selling the fuses in August, but still has not publicly disclosed the problems with the items. The fuse sets can still be purchased on eBay. The recall was initiated after four customer complaints were filed with Harbor Freight Tools and two complaints filed with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Between August 2005 and August 2007, Harbor Freight sold 295,000 fuse sets, each with 120 fuses, which means as many as 35 million fuses could be involved. The kits sold for between $3 and $10.

In August 2007, General Motors Corp. sent an internal bulletin to dealers discouraging them from using the Harbor Freight fuses and reminding dealers that the fuses are not GM parts.

I have photos of this damage, and mower sits untouched as of now.

I had recently installed a 20 amp fuse from this pack of fuses from Harbor Freight. The fuse and it’s container are melted, and most of the wires in and around the motor and dash have been burned.

I can supply photos of the damage to my riding mower.
