Kidde Fire Extinguisher Recall
« on: November 02, 2017, 09:53:16 AM »
Here's the site to check on Kidde Fire Extinguishers being recalled:

https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2017/kidde-recalls-fire-extinguishers-with-plastic-handles-due-to-failure-to-discharge-and

It has a link to Kidde's site where you enter information about any fire extinguishers you have.  If they are included in the recall Kidde will send you a replacement and tell you what to do with the recalled unit.

Thank You Dan, I had two recalls so far.  One here at home, one in the RV, and I have not even checked the Cabin yet.

I had only one that I could find subject to this recall.  In reviewing what we have I realize I need to get a somewhat smaller extinguisher my wife can handle.  The one on the recall list will be shifted to the area where she needs one.  Glad the information helped you.

I keep telling friends and relatives that the best place to keep a fire extinguisher in the house, is in the bedroom!

Reason being, if a fire breaks out in the middle of the night, you'll have immediate access to the fire extinguisher and not have to get past a fire to get to it!

Thanks for the heads up. I just checked all of mine and the one in my shop was recalled. Filled in the info online and they will be sending out a new one. :)

I sent three in and now I get an email saying that one needs to be resubmitted, but which one?  I resubmitted them all so now I'll probably get a bag of switches......or nothing   :-\

Plastic handles is what the guy a KIDDE told me!

I have a 3 pounder and a 5 pounder that I have to take out of service when the new ones arrive!

Don't know if I have to send the old ones in or just discharge them, or what!

Got my new extinguisher today and the only difference I could tell was there is a metal pin on the new one versus the plastic pin on the old one.  They included a FedEx label to return the old extinguisher to them.  They'll probably pull the old plastic pin, replace it with a metal pin, put it in a new box and ship to the store for resale.  MagicMan, you'll probably get a bag full of plastic pins. :D

Did they have you discharge the extinguishers before shipping them back?

I kind of thought they might to minimize the shipping weight!

No, they didn't have me discharge it.  Funny that the product box with the new extinguisher showed the plastic pin.
