I got the first of four replacement fire extinguishers on Friday. They want the old one back and provide the box and prepaid shipping label.
The new one has all metal handles and lever. Same size and rating.
Pretty nice for trading in a 20 year old one!

Three more to go.

Received an email from Kidde stating my replacements are on back order.

I just got two more replacement fire extinguishers from Kidde via FedEx. Unfortunately, one of the boxes was heavily damaged on the end. When I took opened the inner box, it had the extinguishing agent (powder) all over in the box. The metal operating handle sill had the pin and seal intact but had bent down almost to the cylinder allowing the "burp" that dusted the inside of the box.
30 minutes on the phone with Kidde and I have yet another extinguisher on the way to replace the damaged new one.
They asked me to pack the box tightly with extra Styrofoam on the valve end to prevent it from happening again. I offered to discharge the extinguisher but they want to see it in an unmolested state to evaluate the valve pinning system.
