SOURCE: my kidde smoke and carbon monoxide alarm keeps

You will need to remove the unit from the ceiling to reveal the battery compartment on the back. It should just need to be rotated counter clockwise a small amount and will then come loose from the bracket. When installing a new battey be sure to press the battery reminder finger down into the battery compartment or the battery door will not close. Call the Kidde (pronounced kid-a) hotline if you have problems 1.800.880.6788

SOURCE: kidde smoke alarm won't stop chirping

Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.

SOURCE: I have a kidde nighthawk*(combo

Does the display read, "Err"? According to the Kidde web site, all of their detectors (CO anyway, not sure about smoke) manufactured since, I believe, 2002, have a built-in clock that AUTOMATICALLY and apparently irreversibly disables them ~7 years after they are first powered up, a nice little "planned obsolescence/End-of-Life", under-documented "feature" that forces you to buy a replacement. Try to find THAT warning on the OUTSIDE of the packaging. Or call their "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 and tell them how you feel about it. If yours was manufactured before 2002 it may have escaped the automatic shut-down fate, so it probably really IS malfunctioning. Don't take a chance, just replace it.

New smoke detector, new batteries, red light flashing is that normal

My Kidde Model 1285 keeps chirping even after I changed the batteries, any ideas why?

Be sure you are using a well known brand battery. The store brands, in my my opinion generally are not quite up to par. Try this and see if the chirp will stop. Thanks for asking me.

My kidde model kn-cosm1b alarm goes off and ask to check battery but the battery is good

See the instructions for that model. Sometimes you need to wait a minimum period of time between removal of the old battery and installation of the new one. Also make sure you are positioning the battery correctly; sometimes batteries can be put in backwards easily. It is also possible that the device is just bad and needs to be replaced.

My Kidde Frynetics 1275 smoke alarms started going off intermittently. (Slower than when there has been smoke in the house from the oven). THere was no fire and no smoke. Not sure why?

Make sure to only use a brand name alkaline 9 volt battery. Don't use a used battery or a dollar store battery (bargain store). Then press the test button for 10 seconds to reset this unit and any more down the line.

My Kidde carbon monoxide alarm keeps beeping every 30 seconds and we have put new batteries in it but it keeps beeping

Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (Its not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon Amazon com smoke alarm detector (watch out on reviews). I hope this was helpful. cheers

I have a Kidde combo smoke/carbon monoxide alarm and when my window air conditioner goes on the alarm goes off?

I assume your alarm is hard wired which should have its own circuit especially if there are any fluorescent lights on the same circuit.

I just fixed a new Kidde alarm hardwired with both the features CO monoxide and smoke alarm. I bought this from Home Depot. The alarm is working fine but the green led light is flicking. I don't think that...

The normal condition for the green LED is solid. A flashing green LED indicates memory of a prior alarm condition. Press the test for at least 2 seconds to reset the detector memory.
