What are the defects?
Due to a manufacturing defect, the camshaft decompressor mechanism in the engine can malfunction.
In models without an electric starter this excessive force may be required to pull the starter rope to start the engine.
In the model with an electric starter the electric starter may fail to start the motor.
What are the hazards?
There is a risk of a strain injury from kickback of the starter rope because of high compression within the engine.
