To make your Kidde recall claim, you will need to have all of your product information handy, as well as photographic evidence of the Kidde smoke alarm for which you are attempting to make a claim for a replacement. However, navigating through the requirements can be tricky, and even one missing piece of information can keep your claim from being successful.

What Products Are Covered Under the Kidde Recall?

This recall involves Kidde TruSense Smoke Alarms and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarms. The recall applies to Kidde Model Series 2040, 2050, 2060, and 2070 Smoke and Combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide alarms.

Note that only alarms with the TruSense logo or "AMBER=FAULT" printed on the front of the alarm are covered by this recall. You can find the model number on the back of the alarm.

This recall covers the following model numbers:

  • 2040-DSR Smoke alarm

Do I Immediately Get a Recall If I Report My Product?

The short answer is no. You can't expect to get a recall immediately upon reporting your smoke alarm. The company will need to determine that you actually own a covered model, and you will be expected to provide sufficient evidence of your ownership before receiving a replacement.

As we've explained above, evidence that you'll be expected to supply includes photos of one of the covered products. Once you 've submitted your claim and evidence, you'll need to wait to hear back from the company, and often getting in touch with them through any other means can be difficult. And should they end up denying your claim, you may feel that you're on your own and without any recourse.

This is why it's better to make your claim through DoNotPay. With DoNotPay, you have assistance and backup in getting your recall claim approved with the fewest possible questions asked.
