    I tried calling and waited forever. They dumped my 1st call. Called back and waited another 6 or 7 mins then just hung up. Maybe email them they might respond.

    Most likely easier to just buy a new one :-(

    I went online and filled out the form with shipping address, said it would be 15 - 20 working days for replacements. You'll get a tracking and phone number if you have problems. Just follow the link I posted and you'll get there. I didn't even try the phone deal, figured it would be unreachable. We'll see how it goes.

    From the video a local news station did, the plastic handle broke when trying to discharge the extinguisher. She just took the handle, laid it across the brass plunger and re-activated it. A bit clumsy but still worked. I'm not saying that's the reason for this recall, but just the situation I saw.

    They claimed an out of spec lubricant was the reason. And they were the ones made in Mexico only. Mine is USA. Must have caused a leak in the valve it-self.
