Default Partially Rooted Kindle?

1st time post but I've used the board in the past to root my incredible and now my Kindle Fire 1st Gen. To root my Kindle I used the Kindle Fire Utility and it worked great. I was able to download from play store and I still am. Here's the issue. About two weeks ago my kindle's battery drained overnight. When I powered it back up I noticed the bootloader option didn't come up and I didn't get the blue Kindle Fire logo. I didn't think much of it until I noticed that all my Kindle Apps were working without the OTA Rootkeeper fix. I went into root keeper and it does not identify my Kindle as being rooted. I plug it into KFU and it says it is Rooted. I try to mess around with ES File Explorer and it too says I'm not rooted and I can't get to root section of the programs. Sorry for the long post but I'm confused as to whats up with my machine. I'm hoping someone might be able to suggest a fix before I do something that bricks the kindle. Same kind of thing happened with my incredible where I was half rooted...if that's a thing.

I get that and I agree - but how do you explain the two programs and a root checker indicating that my machine is not rooted or at least does not have root access?

Figured it out - I ran KFU again and I have Root access.
