As rlitman said, this is for Homeowner Units ONLY!

Models affected are as follows:
HT56C
FC56C
FS40C
FS50C
FS56C

With Serial Numbers between 501830112 and 504083576

STOP using unit and return it to your dealer for inspection/repair of fuel tank vent that could leak!

Yes, thank you. Some of us 1 man operations could be on a tight budget and using some cheaper equipment.
