Door Lock Recall and Safety Issue

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Fastec Industrial Corp. (FIC) is recalling 2,864,670 model 43610, 40610, and 44610 door locks manufactured between Jan. 2006 and April 2013 with a keyed paddle handle and deadbolt for use in recreational vehicles. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt in locks with certain key codes.

If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the recreational vehicle at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

FIC will notify the original equipment door and recreational vehicle manufacturers and the consumers of record and instruct them on how to determine whether they have a defective lock. Consumers of record will be sent replacement cylinders with instructions, free of charge. The vehicle manufacturers will notify their consumers. The recall is expected to begin Sept. 10, 2013. Owners may contact FIC at 1.800.837.2505.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY 1.800.424.9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

FWIW this happened to us.. but we were locked OUT.. not in. (the kitties were locked in.. and those rascals woudn't open the door for us either!! )
Flagstaff 832IKBS.. single door. and lock is FIC.. Sunday night call-out for a locksmith was $90!!!!

Emailed FR warranty and was told:
" WE PURCHASE THE DOORS FORM A COMPANY CALLED DEXTER WE DO NOT HAVE AMY
RECALL ON THE LOCKS AT THIS TIME. "...

Called FIC per the recall PDF.. and was told that based on what happened with our, YES it was under recall and they're sending me the replacement kit.

What irks me is that FR denied having these locks.. I think somebody owes me the $90 locksmith bill!!

woody9, I'd push harder. Ask for management. $90.00 is 2/3rd a tank of fuel where I am, and that's worth a phone call or two for sure.

Oh, it's NOT dead yet! i sent him a photo of the lock.. had sent him the PDF about the recall. Also have another email address I'm going to use shortly. Just have another warranty issue that needs to be nailed down (converter had a hit-pitched screech to it. now THEY are telling me it checked fine. It may have been fine electrically, but audibly, it wasn't right ... or maybe i have dog hearing??)

Disappointingly, my list of issues on this trailer is growing way too fast!

Are you sure it is the converter? I had a high pitched whistle in our V-Lite when we first got it and I was the only one who could hear it. I tracked it down to the propane gas leak detector. Dealer sent me a new one right out and I changed it and life has been good since. Of course the detector is right beside the converter in ours so it could have been mistaken as the converter.

A fan going out on a wfco converter will. Have a high pitched squeal.
Which is why I added a third fan I can turn on and off.
If were camping its on.

I ran their troubleshooting checklist and all results pointed to the board (not the fan, darn it). NOW they're saying it checked good, sent 'mine' (??) back and zapped the CC for one + shipping/handling.. dang them! Turbo - added a 3d? sounds like a good preventative measure! There a thread on that?

Can anyone tell me where the original thread is about the lock recall. I wanted to show it to DH since our locks are included. We also had to call a locksmith after our puppy was locked inside. Dealer replaced the locks and new lock is still in recall

as for an update on my situation.. FR is kicking the can on this over to FIC. FIC has been VERY good in providing replacement/tool to do it. I'm still thinking i SHOULD NOT be out the $90 for a locksmith visit to correct a defective lock!!!
Supposedly my request is floating around within FIC. and supposed to hear back next week. Will update what happens..

I looked at the number on my RV key and called. They told me that the one I had was on the recall list. They took my address and told me that they would sent a new one with instructions for the install and an SAE to return the old recalled one to them. I will let you know how it went when I receive and install it. Looked like there were many recalled.
