How old is the unit. Carbon Monoxide alarms do wear out and are no longer effective after approximately years. You may need to replace it.

Kidde nighthawk model KN-COPP-3 has error code 09, can anyone tell me what that code means?


Congratulations, error code "E09" is the grossly under-documented "planned obsolescence feature" called, rather matter-of-factly, "End of Life". This means that ~7 years after first being powered up, the unit will, BY DESIGN, cease to function, forcing you to buy a replacement. Would have been nice of Kidde to include THAT warning on the OUTSIDE of the package. Call their "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 and tell them what you think of that policy. If it is still under warranty (5 or 7 years depending on date of manufacture) they should replace it. In any event, buy another one; if they replace your first one you will have twice the protection. Not a bad thing. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle. Words to live by: "Every creative act results from a sudden cessation of stupidity." -Edwin H.

The unit gives a constant Err message and continues to beep...Test Reset has no effect. Is the unit "shot" or can I fix the problem? Kidde Nighthawk Mfg 2003


If the display shows "Err", push and hold the Peak Level button. Does the display change to "E09"? If so, then you have just been "had" by the grossly under-documented "planned obsolescence feature" called, rather matter-of-factly, "End of Life".

My nighthawk Kidde carbon monoxide detector keeps beeping every 25-30 seconds. Do I need to buy a new one?


Some models of Carbon Monoxide Detectors will give an audible beep every 25-30 seconds after it has sounded an alert alarm. This may have happened when there was noone home to hear it. A periodic beeping sound may also indicate it is time to change the battery.

Solution: Install a new battery and check your manual for instructions on how to reset the system. Check the expiry date on your unit, it needs to be replaced after 5 to 7 years, according to the manufacturer specifications.

If you are in doubt that your Carbon Monoxide Detector is not working effectively, REPLACE IT. Your safety and your peace of mind is worth it.

WE PURCHASED A NIGHTHAWK CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM TWO YEARS AGO FOR $50.00. THE OTHER EVE. IT WENT OFF WITH A CODE THE SAID ERROR AND THEN WHEN I RESET, IT SAID 888....IS IT SHOT OR IS THERE SOMETHING WE CAN...


I had this problem as well...and if you look at the date of manufacture on the back of the unit and it's more than 7 years old then the unit is out of warranty and needs to be replaced. If you have a receipt from wherever you purchased it proving that you only owned the unit for a few years, then they will replace it at no charge. Call the Kidde customer service # at 800-880-6788. Good Luck!

I have 7 year old smoke and carbon monoxide alarm...I have put a new replacement battery and detector is chirping every 15 seconds or so


Check the expiry date on this unit. The manufacturer recommends replacement usually after 5 to 7 years depending on the model.

You bought a Combo Gas/CO Detector for protection against the hazards of Gas and Carbon Monoxide poisoning. A new unit will give you the peace of mind you are looking for.

Carbon monoxide detector err code


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