Hi Sally,
Fisher is aware of the problem (or should be). I contacted Fisher
Canada about it probably a year ago or so and had them replace 4 boxes
for me. They made it seem as though this was a brand new phenomenon that
they had not heard of before but I've known it to be a sporadic problem
for years and I figured I couldn't have been the only one to have
experienced this problem! They logged my complaint and forwarded the
information on to the manufacturer (a Japonese company I believe). But
as yet, I have't seen any design improvements to the dispensers. Maybe a
Fisher person on this list would like to comment on whether the
manufacturer has made any progress toward improving the dispensers.

I have Feather dispensers with blades that I have to pry out, which is
probably not a good thing.  I've tried freezing the dispenser, putting
it in an oven for a while and whacking the darned thing on the floor
(not necessarily all at the same time..).  Have we had this discussion
before and have we solved this problem?  Help?
