    Split Kindle Fire

    My Kindle Fire, that was NOT dropped, or subjected to any other form of impact, just began - and continue - to split open along its right side. Not overcharged, nothing that I can put the blame on. Has something like this happened to anybody?

    I've seen several reports of the problem on various forums. In some cases it appears to be the result of heat generated by the battery. Have you contacted Kindle Support? If not, I'd urge you to do so. You're not alone and as long as your KF doesn't show any telltale signs of abuse you should be able to get an exchange under your warranty. If they give you trouble, mention that you've seen reports of the battery heat causing the problem.

    Hope you were able to get a replacement.

    Ours is doing the same thing. It started about a week ago with a bump in the back cover like something inside was swelling and it has gotten progressively worse. Did you get yours replaced.
