KIDDE Fire Extinguisher Recall

Postby asm777 on Thu Nov 02, 2017 5:21 pm

Not sure if all Ranger Tugs and Cutwater Boats are factory equipped with KIDDE fire extinguishers... but I just checked and both of ours are on the recall list. (Model FA5G manufactured between January 2, 2012 and August 15, 2017).

Would recommend everyone to check their fire extinguishers... wouldn't want to have an incident get worse because the fire extinguisher didn't work!

This is a big recall! Lots of models and years covered by the recall.
Both of my “on boat” Kidde extinguishers are on the recall list. Made in 2015 and used to replace the originals. One of the original Kidde extinguishers I kept (made in 2008) is also covered by the recall. Looks like I will be getting 3 new ones in a month or so.

Thanks for the online link. It made quick work of requesting two replacement fire extinguishers.

Not sure what the return process will be but don’t throw the old ones out right now! It’s hard to believe that Kidde will make all of us ship the old ones back to Kidde but until we get the replacements and return instructions I think we should hold on the the ones being recalled...

At the last recall, they provided instructions on how to discharge and dispose of them. No return was required. Haven't received my new recall replacements and instructions yet.

FYI, just received replacements and there is a prepaid shipping label inside to send back the recalled units.

What service (USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc) was used for delivery to your doorstep ? I say "doorstep" because these Fire Extinguishers will not fit into most people's mail boxes.

Mine were delivered by FedEx yesterday. Swapped them out and shipped them back today using the enclosed shipping label. Not too sure why they want them back (doubles their shipping costs).

My guess is they want them back to reduce liability. If they are not out in the field, they can't be used, they can't have something go wrong and it reduces the chance of being sued. They are doing their do diligence to remove a defective product from the field.

I wonder if the USCG inspectors will have the means to verify defective KIDDE fire extinguishers and if found decline to issue their certification to the boat owner ??????? My guess is that this will not happen, but then who knows..... :o

We had 9 that were on the recall list. They're shipping them to us one at a time. They get shipped back by FedEx (for free and they'll pick up) as hazardous material. You have to call FedEx every time to arrange the pickup.

Ya, I had two on the recall list.

I got one last week and the old one is going back to them today.
I'm wondering when the second replacement will happen.

Possibly they are doing them one-at-a-time in order to get something out there to each customer.
We'll see.
