Fire extinguisher recall
« on: November 02, 2017, 03:25:54 PM »
There is a big recall on fire extinguishers dating back as far as 1973. Not real clear to find out if yours is covered. Here is the link.

Thanks Diablo!
I went out this morning and checked mine and sure enough I have one.
But I'm glad I have 2 onboard and my main one is a rechargeable fire extinguisher that I get certified.

2 out of 3 of mine were affected............

Here's the better links I sent to my family:

All this is easily done online from this Kidde web page:
    https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/Kidde284US/

And here’s a better link to an ID Guide for plastic handle models:

Check 'em -- before you need 'em and wreck 'em!

WOW!!  What an eye opener for me.  I have a recalled model, but not the right year...  I bought my first Arima in 2009 but my extinguisher, which I bought at the same time, has a date label from 2002...

I can still feel the powder move when I shake it so I guess still good and not among those units recalled...  Strange that it would be 7 years old when I bought it???

Thanks Old no7 for posting those links, both of mine were on the list so I registered them and received a reply that I will be sent 2 new ones in 15-20 days! It is good to see that they are standing behind them and replacing them. I am sure this is going to cost them many million's of $$$$$

Check your date again. It’s not the last five numbers. It’s the fifth to ninth. I didn’t do it right and thought mine was not covered.

“Digits five through nine represent the day and year of manufacture in DDDYY format. Date codes for recalled models manufactured from January 2, 2012 through August 15, 2017 are 00212 through 22717.  For units produced before 2007, a date code is not printed on the fire extinguisher.”

That date is only for models H110G many other models are covered. I have one from my shop that I was going to take to the dump. Built in 1974 and it’s covered.  :bigshock:

Correction. The extinguisher above from 1974 was not covered. Dang that is a nice big one.  :doh:

Glad to help!

I'm now up to 3 OUT OF 4 of ours here at the house will be replaced!

And to think for all those years, I had "trusted" the Kidde name.............

I just might keep the old ones as "backups" too... But use NEW ones if/when, you know.

Called Kidde today. The guy with whom I spoke didn’t instill a lot of confidence. Perhaps it was his first day on the job. 2 of 3 extinguishers I keep in the boat are involved in the recall.

Diablo  -  Big thanks!!  I called Kidde today and they were very helpful.  And gave me the info to find the date by looking on the bottom of the unit.  Turns out this is one of the items that fits the recall standards.  They say I should be getting a new unit within 15 or 20 days.  Once again, thank you.  Oh yeah! They asked where I found out about the recall. Told him about our great site.

I got a replacement for one of three extinguishers today. You get a new extinguisher plus a return shipping label. Use the new box plus the shipping box to send back the old extinguisher. You can even call FedX for pick up. Eazy peazy. I didn’t really think they would want the old extinguishers left in service.
Thanks for the new extinguisher Kiddy.

The old extinguisher is one less bottle they need to manufacturer -- plus-- the defective units are taken out of circulation thus reducing their legal exposure...  Smart move in my opinion.

I have two that will be heading back to kiddee tomorrow.

If the web page tells you your extinguisher is "unaffected" you might want to call the number to confirm. One we have from 1986 that very clearly has a plastic handle and nozzle came back "unaffected." I called to have them explain how they could be sure this plastic one could be trusted where the others could not. The operator said they've had many times where the web page says an extinguisher is "unaffected" but if the operator puts in the same info it comes back as "affected." Which is what happened in my case.

Long time happening, and a thread resurrection... but thanks Diablo!!

   My extinguisher was under the recall, and although I filed for a replacement before Xmas, I just got my new one last week.  Installed and looking pretty.  My 2014 extinguisher is now a 2018...and for FREE!

  So any of you guys actually send the old one back?
