    Oh, why am I feeling bad? I used the fire extinguisher to put out a propane tank that had flames burning out of the valve handle!!! Worked great!!!
    I too get those feel bad feelings sometimes, they usually last for about 59 seconds............

    Well,, BOO HISS on KIDDE!!

    My recalled fire extinguisher is a Kidde 10-B-C,,, they sent a Kidde 5-B-C

    The new extinguisher is half the size of the old one, and weighs a pound less (about 1/3)

    After 4 calls, I have been on hold for 15 minutes (thank goodness for speaker phones, and volume control)

    I assume the one sent is 1/2 the capacity of the old one?

    They sent a note that I should put the old one in the same packaging, and return,,,
    that is a JOKE, it should be a similar extinguisher, not half the size,,,
    My old extinguisher will not fit in the little box they sent,,

    I have been on hold long enough to get a pic,,,

    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I am glad some of you got your returns quickly. I guess mine will be in the 15-20 day range. Been 10 days so far. Both of mine have lost pressure and no longer in the green zone.

    It's my understanding that all the FX models with plastic handles and a welded neck are recalled. Some of the ones with plastic handles and no welded neck are not recalled.

    Yours appears to still be pressured up so I would keep it till they send the right one to you.

    They have sent me 3 of the 4 that were recalled. All 3 of them were the correct item. I have no idea when (or if) the 4th one will show up.
    I also got a letter from Kidde which says "disregard the original shipping instructions". Basically that change amounts to calling Fedex for a home pickup instead of dropping off the returns at a Fedex store.
    I am not planning to send back the 3 that I have until the 4th one arrives. Too much of a PITA to deal with Fedex multiple times.

    I called on the 10th and was told both of mine were shipped. I haven't received them yet. After that I discovered I had a push button model on my tool box that was on the list so I filled out another form for that one.

    Did you get an email or tracking number or any acknowledgement that they received the claim? Been three weeks now and I'm not sure if it fell through the cracks due to the (probably) massive volume of claims or if someone mexicaned it off the porch.
    Whoever said that you can't fight city hall had obviously never met Marvin Heemeyer.
