Marine engine throttles with part numbers:
5563449, 5563448 and 5563447.
Throttles sold individually, or as installed in certain Cummins B, C, L, and M marine engines. (See list of Engine Serial Numbers (ESN) enclosed to this posting for the specific engines that may be affected by this recall.)
What are the defects?
Affected throttles have an elevated risk of intermittent failure which can result in an incorrect electrical signal out of the throttle assembly.
What are the hazards?
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 should consumers 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
