Red Max Back pack blower- problem

Don't know if this has happened to any of you with Red Max Blowers but I thought I'd make you aware of it. Last fall I noticed that the plastic cover for the air filter was rubbing a hole in the sparkplug wire. Caught it in time but it would have rubbed through. Ended up cutting a notch out of the cover as there is no way to move the wire out of the way. Just something to keep an eye on.

Thanks, I just checked mine. It's 2 1/2 years old and it only scraped a little bit. I checked my Shindaiwa too. The spark plug wire goes behind the air filter cover. So I pushed the Redmax wire behind its air filter cover also.
