SOURCE: fixing maxicosi seat to base

Hi,

If you have a Cabrio Fix carseat, underneath the carseat should be two silver metal bars that slot into the base, if these are not on the carseat then you have the Cabrio model which is not compatible with the base.

I hope this helps.

Good Morning

The Maxi Cosi CabrioFix can be fitted without any base, using the 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyFix base, using IsoFix points or 3 point seatbelt: With the EasyBase and EasyBase 2 using the 3 point seatbelt. It cannot be used with the Mico carseat base as they are not designed to be used together. The Mico is available in US and does not meet UK standards: Likewise the CabrioFix does not meet US standards so they should never be used together.

If you don't know how to fit the carseat into your vehicle using the 3 point seatbelt please check your user manual, or download a replacement copy at www.maxi-cosi.com before use go to an authorised retailer to check it is correctly installed as this will affect the performance of the carseat.

Hi,
we have the same problem with our family fix base - our vehicle is approved on the list, an other family fix base we tried did not have this problem, but we can not seem to find the problem with this one - it starts out of the blue to beep while driving, all three lights are green though. Is sending back to amazon (in our case) the only solution?
thanks in advance.

How do I stop smoke alarm from beeping


Smoke alarms beep in two different ways: it beeps continuously when smoke is present, and it beeps every so often (intermittently) when the battery needs to be replaced.

I have just purchased 4 Kidde fire and carbon monoxide alarms. After installing the batteries and preforming the test, two of the alarms continue to beep at a low decibal every two hours


Check the Kidde website. Chances are they have information, including manuals, which could be of help. Make sure you are using fresh, high quality batteries as well.

My Scorpion Z6 house alarm system, with fire alarms attached, beeped during the night for no apparent reason. All contoller lights were correctly on indicating it is not a battery problem. I think the beep...


I'm not familiar with your system... but, I'd suggest changing any and all batteries, if it happens again. I don't know about your controller lights, but I do know that the battery does not have to get very low in an alarm before it starts giving you an occasional warning chirp.. If your battery or batteries are over a year old, you should change them, anyway. If a new battery (batteries) doesn't fix your problem, you might try vacuuming or blowing some air into the works on the chance you might dislodge some foreign particle that might be causing this. That said, though, I have had to trash fire alarms that did just how you're describing... because, no matter what, I couldn't make them be quiet.

My alarm is testing multiple times a day


Check that the battery is installed the right way around. Most smoke alarms can only be tested manually (by pushing the button). If you are hearing a single beep every 50 or 60 seconds then this is the low battery indicator and this will sound if the battery is inserted the wrong way around. If the siren is actually sounding continually then your smoke alarm might be clogged with dust or other foreign matter. All smoke alarms should be replaced every 5 to 7 years as the components in them only have a limited life span.

Ademco motion detector false alarms


Aside from any sensitivity adjustments, after all a false alarm caused by falling objects, pets or juicy bugs is not a false alarm..it's an environmental mismatch of sensor to the area, some motion detector false alarms are caused by circuit faults, possibly during the install, where the wire terminals were turned too hard and twisted slightly and are not as solid as the manufacturer intended. This twisted terminal mount could cause false alarms when either the power circuit or the sensor circuit loses continuity. Intermittent power (caused by weak/loose/nicked/damaged wiring, a weak terminal on the board or power supply problems could cause annoying faults that are hard to trace. Diligence and a good eye to spot these problems and correct them will help you determine the cause of false alarms.

In the case of wireless devices, troubleshooting is usually limited to spotless battery contacts, good batteries and proper placement.

Replaced 9 v batteries, units still chirping


This is the troubleshooting information from the kddie site. The problem is usually related to an older battery or improperly installed battery. You might also have to do a reset as described below. If battery and cleaning don't work, it might be time for a replacement - short money to keep you and your home safe.

  1. The battery may be loose, or improperly installed.
    Verify that a battery of the recommended type is securely installed. Make sure to use a battery with a use-by date no later than four to five years in the future. Check that the battery is snapped in completely so it cannot be shaken loose. It’s possible that battery connections may not be making good contact with the battery. Disconnecting and re-connecting the battery once or twice will likely fix this condition. On units with a front-load battery, be sure that the battery compartment door is closed completely as well. Loose white neutral wire can cause an echoing chirp. (From one unit to the next)

  2. The smoke alarm sensing chamber may be dirty.
    Dust and insects can collect in the sensing chamber of the alarm. An accumulation of dust in the sensing chamber can cause the unit to chirp. It is good practice to clean the smoke alarm when you change the battery. Static electricity from the ac quick connector attracts dust and can cause false alarms.

    Cleaning smoke alarms:
    To clean your alarm, remove it from the mounting bracket as outlined here. You can clean the interior of your alarm (sensing chamber) by using compressed air or a vacuum cleaner hose and blowing or vacuuming through the openings around the perimeter of the alarm. The outside of the alarm can be wiped with a damp cloth. After cleaning, reinstall your alarm, verify the green LED is on and test your alarm by using the Test Button. If cleaning does not restore the alarm to normal operation, the alarm should be replaced.

  3. Check environmental conditions:
    • Humidity, steam and condensation can cause false alarms. Causes of condensation are:
      • Extreme temperatures changes.
      • High ambient humidity.
      • Unit being installed in an uninsulated electrical box mounted on a ceiling beneath an attic. If this condition exists you’ll want to move the alarm. Click here to see the correct alarm placement in your user’s manual found in our Download Center.
    • Check to see if there is a cooling/heating register, a ceiling fan or an open window within 3 feet of the alarm. If there is, move the alarm away from the source of the increased airflow. Click here to see the correct alarm placement in your user’s manual found in our Download Center.
    • Check the temperature of the room. Smoke alarms operate at 40 degrees to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. Carbon monoxide alarms operate at 40 degrees to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

  4. Reset the alarm.
    Some current model smoke alarms have a processor that retains certain error conditions, such as a weak battery. The error condition should reset when the battery is replaced but sometimes it does not and must be manually reset to clear the error.

    To reset an AC unit with a battery backup:
    Turn off the power to the smoke alarm at the circuit breaker.Remove the smoke alarm from the mounting bracket and disconnect the power. Remove the battery. Press and hold the test button for at least 15 seconds. The unit may chirp or alarm for a few seconds before going silent.Reconnect the power and reinstall the battery. The unit will chirp once when the power is restored and should not chirp afterwards.

    To reset a DC only unit:
    Remove the battery. Press and hold the test button for at least 15 seconds. The unit may chirp or alarm for a few seconds before going silent.Reinstall the battery. The unit will chirp when the battery is first connected but should not chirp afterwards.

  5. An electrical condition may be causing the power to the unit to be interrupted.
    If the AC power to the unit is interrupted, the unit will chirp when the power is restored. This could be caused by power surges.
    If the chirping seems to occur at about the same time in the evening or morning, it could be due to a surge created when the power company switches electrical grids to meet demand. Check to see if the chirp (or chirping) occurs when something else in the house is turned on such as an exhaust or attic fan, a heater, etc. If the smoke alarm is connected to a circuit with such a device, the alarm may chirp when the other device is switched on. If this is the case and the device is plugged into a wall outlet, move it to another outlet on a different circuit. If it is a hardwired device, have an electrician investigate it. These conditions can be minimized by installing your alarms on a dedicated circuit in compliance with NFPA requirements.

  6. Replace the alarm.
    If none of these conditions exist and the suggestions don't alleviate the symptom, the alarm should be replaced. Age may be a factor. Smoke and heat alarms should be replaced every 10 years, and carbon monoxide and combination alarms should be replaced every 7 years. Most of our alarms have a 5 year warranty from date of purchase (check your user manual for details). A date code is stamped on the label attached to the back of the unit.

Carrier 38CKC042 Air... Problem--Alarms for 60 sec. when the fan blows


Where does the alarm come from? Is it a beep noise or a siren noise? Please let us know. The reason I ask is because this is not something I have ever ran into before. Based on the model number you provided I have determined your unit to be a typical split system A/C. I do not see even an option to install any alarms for it.

Maybe it is wired in series with another alarming device like. Maybe it is not an alarm at all but a bad bearing in the motor causing an alarm sound.
