(Meredith) -- About 3,850 Kubota Z100 Series Zero Turn Mowers sold nationwide are being recalled because of a potential fire hazard.

The recalled product is the gasoline-powered Kubota Z100 Series Zero Turn Mowers with model years of 2018 and 2019 and are orange and black in color.

The recalled mowers include the following model numbers and serial numbers:

  • Model Z122EBR-48, serial number beginning with 21408 and ending with 22007
  • Model Z121SKH-48, serial number beginning with 31302 and ending with 32882

The model number is printed on the side of the mower. A data plate with the serial number and model number is located on the lower frame of the mower.

The recalled mowers were sold nationwide at authorized Kubota dealers from July 2018 to January 2019 for about $5,000-$6,000.

The mowers are being recalled because a throttle cable can make contact with internal electrical wiring, posing a fire hazard.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled mowers and contact an authorized Kubota dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. Kubota is contacting all known purchasers directly.

Users can contact Kubota Tractor Corporation at at 800-752-0290 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
