YES!!!! If this unit is working properly you should not be in the house. Maximum allowable safety level for an 8 hour period is 50! If you think it's working properly call the fire department! This will cause dizziness,nausea,etc. Let your fire department find the problem! If you don't believe me follow this link to owner's manual but do it quickly: http://www.kiddeus.com/utcfs/ws-384/Assets/KN-COB-B(9CO5)en.pdf

SOURCE: what does an err code E03 mean?

Correct. Intermittent beeping is a sign of "component failure". Time for a new one.

SOURCE: My Kidde carbon monoxide alarm beeps once every 35

Hi,

1. Change batteries.
2. Clean it.
3. Swap it with another location if you can.

If it still does not work properly consult the local fire dept. for free.

You may have to take it in repairs if all fails.

SOURCE: Nighthawk Combo Gas/co Detector: is 218 a high read of carbon monoxide levels in a ...

A reading of 218 should be treated as an emergency. When a Carbon Monoxide level reaches over 70 ppm, you should have a professional inspect and repair the appliance that is causing this issue.

Carbon monoxide levels above 70 ppm will cause headache, fatigue and nausea. Levels above 150 ppm can cause serious injury or death.

My night hawk carbon monoxide reads L6. Then Err.


Lb (rather than L6) indicates a low battery. You need to replace the 9V battery in the carbon monoxide detector. The Err suggests an internal error but could just be due to the low battery.

If the Err persists after you replace the battery, press the peak level button (the right hand button) and check for an additional error code. If the Err message continues, replace the Night Hawk unit. If the unit is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer. Most of these units have a 10 year warranty. There are several models available from Kidde. The manual is available on the product site. For the KN-COPP-3 Night Hawk carbon monoxide detector, the documentation is available here: http://www.kidde.com/home-safety/en/us/products/fire-safety/co-alarms/kn-copp-3/ . Click on the Documents tab. The manual for the KN-COPP-3 999-0100 is here: http://www.utcccs-cdn.com/hvac/docs/2001/Public/06/User_Guide_KN-COPP-3_900-0100.pdf .

I hope this helps.

What dose the numbers on a carbon alarm mean after it goes off. we think for no reason we only have a gas water heater and that only a year old. Thank u


The numbers on my CO detector indicate the concentration of Carbon Monoxide in the room. The manual for most Kidde Alarms are here: https://portalgb.knowledgebase.net/display/4/kb/browse/cat.aspx?cid=88327&kb=16372&L1cid=88309&L2cid=88327&level=3&r=0.06986403&tab=browse . For some models, it will display the peak CO detected (if the peak level button is pressed).

Do not assume that the alarm is in error. Please have the exhaust vent, pipe and intake (for some tankless water heaters) checked for blockages or disconnected pieces. (You can check some of the vents pipe yourself - like the connection from the water heater to the pipe. Depending on your building, you may need a professional to check the vent on the roof and the pipe from there.) Also check the flame color of the water heater. For natural gas, you should see a blue flame. LP usually has a little bit of yellow in the flame tips. CO is the result of incomplete combustion. See this page for an idea of the flame color: http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_flames.shtml . If the flame is the wrong color, get the unit fixed.

I hope this helps.

When a carbon monoxide detector sends an alarm, there is cause for concern. You mentioned that the other CO detector did not go off, but maybe it is too far away to monitor the carbon monoxide levels that was in this area.

The instructions in your manual would direct you to evacuate the house immediately and ventilate. Your next step is to get a professional to inspect what may have caused the carbon monoxide leak.

A reading of 19 indicates that there is carbon monoxide in that area of your house, unless your CO detector is not working properly. Your local fire department will give you the best advice for what action to take when a carbon monoxide detector sends an alarm.

Be safe, don't assume a carbon monoxide alarm is cause by a defective CO detector, have it inspected.

My Kidde Model # KN-COEG-3 keeps going off and lists 217 now 205 now again 217 and this is with the door open and fresh air coming into my place ??


I took the following from the Kidde website. They only answer the phone Mon-Fri, from 8-5, EST. I checked it out because my almost new Kidde CO detector is showing an Error code.
The next time your carbon monoxide alarm has ERR on the display, push and hold the Peak Level button.You will see an E and an O followed by a number.Contact our hotline at 1-800-880-6788 and provide us the error code, along with the model number, assembly number and date of manufacture from the back of your unit.If your unit is under warranty, a replacement will be mailed to you.

Carbon monoxide is on


When a Carbon Monoxide Detector alarm goes off, you should follow the procedures that came with the manufacturer manual. Even when the alarm sounds, you cannot smell, taste, or see this dangerous silent killer known as Carbon Monoxide.

Have your house checked by your local fire department for possible levels of CO gas readings. If this all checks out, you can go online to Kidde Nighthawk website and find the manual for your Carbon Monoxide detector model.

Hopefully, you found your solution since you posted this question back in Dec, 2008. Go to my website to read industry information and to view most Brands and Models of Carbon Monoxide Detectors.
