I gave Kidde a couple phone calls regarding this recall. The first person I spoke with was as helpful as she could be; however there wasn't a serial number on my fire extinguisher and she was unable to authorize a replacement. I called again and explained my case...........

The new fire extinguisher arrived today via FedEx and the old one is on its way back to Kidde!

Thanks Tiny!! thumbs_up

I sent Kidde message via their website over a week ago asking what to do with the old ones (ship them back, take them to a local FE shop), or ?) since they didn't send me a return label. I still haven't heard back. ohwell

Maybe I should try Sweet's Rocket Skateboard thingy. grin

I would assume that they don't want them back if they don't provide you with return instructions.

That would be my guess, as shipping cost to and from Alaska is expensive,but you'd think they'd at least say so.

I received my two just before Xmas. They both came with return labels I’m guessing to reuse the bottles in future returns.

Yesterday I finally rounded up the two boxes, labels and headed to FedEx. The lady behind the counter stops me just as I walk in the store to tell me they cannot accept my fire extinguishers because they are considered hazardous material.

She said I need to contact the manufacturer and arrange a pickup.

This is getting more complex by the day......

Try a different contractor; store front shipper for FedEx and others. I dropped off two and the lady there said they average at least one a day of these returns.

because they are considered hazardous material
aren't they supposed to stop hazards after they start?

Be careful calling yourself a expert,because an "EX" is a hasbeen and a"SPERT" is a drip under pressure.

Same here! Even though the two boxes that I dropped off at a storefront package place will end up not twenty feet behind those two FEDEX drones behind the counter!!!
