Identifying features

Other identifying numbers

Part numbers for throttle assemblies are 5563449, 5563448 and 5563447. Serial numbers prior to 1917221xx are to be inspected and replaced (if found defective) as part of this recall.

Reasons the product is recalled

Affected throttles have an elevated risk of intermittent failure which can result in an incorrect electrical signal out of the throttle assembly. 

The hazards to consumers

If this occurs, the throttle may become unresponsive, the vessel might remain in gear causing the propeller to turn when neutral is desired and/or the engines may not restart, increasing the risk of personal injury or property damage.

What consumers should do

Consumers should check the Engine Serial Number of their engines and/or the part number on the individual throttles they have as against the identifying numbers provided in, and enclosed to, this posting. Consumers should contact their nearest Cummins distributor or dealer to arrange a time for inspection and any required throttle replacement at no cost to the equipment owners.

Until the campaign is completed on your unit(s), Cummins advises consumers to inform those captaining the vessel to be vigilant while operating the vessel under conditions which are sensitive to operation of the throttle and shift control, such as docking the vessel or when bystanders may be in the vicinity of a propeller.

Consumers can obtain further information by phoning 1300 CUMMINS (1300 286 646) or by email
