IMPORTANT! Please read carefully and save.
This user’s manual contains important information about your fire
extinguisher’s operation. If you are installing this fire extinguisher for
use by others, you must leave this manual—or a copy of it—with the
end user.
Read extinguisher label and the entire user’s manual carefully before
installing or using the unit. Make sure everyone in your household is
completely familiar with the operation of the extinguisher, and review
the instructions regularly. In an emergency, you will not have time to
read instructions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

NOTE: Be sure the extinguisher is rated to fight the type of fire most
likely to occur in the area you choose to install it. Since household
fires commonly start in the kitchen, you should always install an
extinguisher in the kitchen. For added security, you should also install
additional extinguishers in utility areas, and other living areas in your
household.
FE3A40GR is rated Class 3-A:40-B:C.
FE4A60BC is rated Class 4-A:60-B:C.

READ BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING

THIS FIRE EXTINGUISHER!

Fire extinguishers are classified by fire type. The A, B and C
rating system defines the kinds of burning materials each fire
extinguisher is designed to fight. The numbers in front of the
A, B, or C indicate the rating for size of the fire the unit can
extinguish. Using the wrong type of fire extinguisher can do
more harm than good. Make sure you understand which fire
extinguisher to use on each class of fire!
Class A rating: The agent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires involving wood, paper, cloth,
rubber, and some plastics.
Class B rating: The agent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires involving grease, oil, gasoline,
kerosene, and other flammable liquids.
Class C rating: The agent/powder is suitable for
fighting small fires in "live" electrical equipment.
If your First Alert
®
fire extinguisher came with a wall hook:
1. Install the wall hook on a wooden stud or other solid surface that
will support the weight of the extinguisher using the screws or
bolts purchased. Since wall surface types vary, mounting screws
are not included. Purchase screws or bolts specifically designed
for the surface on which you will mount the fire extinguisher.
The fire extinguisher label lists its maximum weight.
2. After installing the wall hook, place the extinguisher on the hook
with the label facing outward, so the label can easily be read.
If your First Alert
®
fire extinguisher came with a metal bracket:
1.
Install the metal bracket on a wooden stud or other solid surface
that will support the weight of the extinguisher using the screws or
bolts purchased. Since wall surface types vary, mounting screws
are not included. Purchase screws or bolts specifically designed
for the surface on which you will mount the fire extinguisher.
The fire extinguisher label lists its maximum weight.
2. After installing the metal bracket, place the extinguisher on the
bracket with the label facing outward, so the label can easily be read.
Raise and wrap the
bracket straps around the cylinder and snap
the buckle closed.

INSTALLING THE MOUNTING BRACKET IN A

MARINE CRAFT (using metal bracket only)

According to the NFPA Standard 302 (Fire protection Standard for
Pleasure and Commercial Motor Craft):
• On marine craft, portable fire extinguishers shall be located to be
readily accessible. Extinguishers shall be secured with a marine
bracket to permit immediate release.
• On marine craft, extinguisher agent cylinders shall be mounted a
minimum of 2 inches (5 cm) above moist or wet surfaces to reduce
the danger of corrosion.

CHECKING AND INSPECTING THE

FIRE EXTINGUISHER

1.
Inspect the extinguisher once a week.
Remove the extinguisher
from the mounting device and inspect the gauge. If the gauge pointer
is anywhere in the green band, the extinguisher is properly charged
and ready to use. If the gauge reads "RECHARGE," the extinguisher
has lost pressure and must be refilled.
2. Check for signs of damage or misuse. Make sure you can still
read all the text on the label. Carefully examine the surface of
the extinguisher for corrosion. You can help prevent corrosion
by cleaning the extinguisher if it gets wet or dirty. If you notice
corrosion during the warranty period, return the unit to First Alert
®
(see "Limited Warranty" at the end of this manual).
3. Make sure the tamper indicator ("safety seal") is still intact and
the nozzle is clean and unobstructed.
4. Record all inspection and maintenance dates on the tag included
with the fire extinguisher.

OW TO INSTALL THIS EXTINGUISHER

MOUNTING YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER

WHERE TO INSTALL THIS EXTINGUISHER

A Fire Extinguisher Should Be Mounted:
In the vicinity of (but not on or in) a potential source of heat
and/or fire, like an oven or stove.
Where it is easy to reach, near an exit or an escape route from
the room.
In a location that is convenient, in plain sight, and 3-1/2 to 5
feet (1 to 1.5 meters) above the floor.
Store the extinguisher high enough to keep it out of the reach
of small children.
On a clean, dry surface where the temperature does not go
above 120° F (49° C) or below –40° F (–40° C).
Do not mount the extinguisher on drywall or plaster without
adequate support. Use strong screws or bolts to mount the
bracket securely into solid wood or metal that can support
it, like a wooden partition stud. Secure mounting is needed
so you can remove the extinguisher quickly and easily in an
emergency. Also, if the extinguisher is not held securely, it
could drop to the floor and injure people or damage the
extinguisher.
Do not break the plastic loop holding the safety pin in place!
This loop prevents accidental discharge of the fire extin-
guisher. Break the loop only in an emergency before using
the fire extinguisher.

HOW TO OPERATE YOUR FIRE

EXTINGUISHER IN A FIRE EMERGENCY

TO FIGHT THE FIRE

1. Lift the extinguisher off the mounting device and remove nozzle
from the holding strap. If your fire extinguisher came with a metal
bracket, unbuckle the metal strap to remove the extinguisher
from the mounting device.
2. Hold the unit firmly in an upright position. Pull out the safety pin
to break the safety seal or tamper indicator. Make sure the extin-
guisher nozzle faces away from you.
3. Stand back from the fire at least 10 feet (3 meters), and make sure
the fire is not between you and your exit.
4. Hold the extinguisher upright and aim the nozzle at the base of
the fire.
5. Press the lever to discharge the powder.
6. Sweep the spray at the base of the burning material, using quick
side-to-side motions. (If the spray scatters the fire, move back.)
7. Move slowly towards the fire as the extinguisher spray pushes
the fire back. Maintain a 10-foot (3 meter) distance between you
and the front of the fire at all times.
8. Completely discharge the contents of the extinguisher and make
sure the fire is completely out. Flashbacks are common with fires.
9. For kitchen fires on a kitchen stove, turn off the stove immediately
if possible, otherwise as soon as it is safe.
10. If you suspect a fire had an electrical origin, shut off the electrical
power, if possible, without eliminating your escape route. Do not
touch electrical wires or appliances.
11. After you have completely discharged your extinguisher, leave the
building and close all the doors behind you.

AFTER THE FIRE IS EXTINGUISHED

Do not turn the electrical power back on or plug in any appliances
until the area has been cleaned up completely. It is very important
to remove the powder from electrical equipment after a fire. If the
powder gets wet, it can conduct electricity. (Using a dry chemical
extinguisher on wet electrical equipment may be hazardous for this
reason.) This may worsen an electrical leakage problem, impair the
equipment’s insulation, or create an electrical shock hazard.
Continued...
Make sure your extinguisher may be safely and effectively
used on the small fire you want to fight. Always use extreme
caution when fighting any fire. Fight a fire only where there is
a clear escape path to allow you to get out safely if the fire
gets worse.
Avoid breathing smoke and heated fumes; stay low if
n
ecessary. Burning materials will release toxic fumes.
I
nhaling these fumes may cause injury or death.
Always stand back far enough away from the fire—near
a
n exit—and make sure nothing is between you and your
e
scape route. If you get too close to a fire, you risk getting
b
urned or hit by splattering material like grease. If the fire is
t
oo hot or smoky for you to get within 10 feet (3 meters), DO
N
OT try to fight the fire yourself. Evacuate immediately and
c
all the Fire Department. Stand back no less than 10 feet
(
3 meters) from the fire.
For fires on a kitchen stove, turn oven or burners off
immediately if possible. If you can’t reach the oven or burner
controls safely, extinguish the fire first, then turn them off.
Fight the fire from an upwind direction with your back to any
strong air current. Trying to fight a fire with currents blowing
towards you can result in serious injury.

IF YOUR EXTINGUISHER NEEDS SERVICE

This fire extinguisher is rechargeable by a certified fire equipment
dealer, regardless of how much of the content was used.
Once a year, a certified fire equipment dealer, in accordance with the
service manual identified on the fire extinguisher label, should service
the fire extinguisher. Please refer to your local telephone directory for
a certified dealer.
D
o not try to service or repair this fire extinguisher under any
c
ircumstances. Do not try to remove the hose, nozzle or valve
a
ssembly. This is a pressurized device that can cause serious
i
njury if tampered with.
I
f there is a problem and it is still under warranty, please see “How to
O
btain Warranty Service” in the Limited Warranty.

DISPOSING OF A USED EXTINGUISHER

If you choose not to have a used extinguisher refilled or a non-working
unit repaired, take it outdoors, turn it upside down, and discharge it
completely. Dispose of the empty unit properly, and replace it with a
new fire extinguisher.
Never puncture, burn or expose this fire extinguisher to tempera-
tures over 150° F (66° C) even if it is fully discharged. The contents
are under pressure and it could explode.
