If you are cooking a lot, especially using an oven it is really important to have a carbon monoxide detector. You'd be surprised at how many CM related deaths there are a year because people don't equip their homes with one.

I have a nighthawk carbon monoxide alarm which is showing nan error code. Please can you tell me what to do to rectify it? Thank you.


You can unplug the unit if it's an AC detector, change the battery for a new one and reset the Carbon Monoxide Detector. If that doen't work, you can have it checked by your local fire department. If the unit is more than 5 years old, it absolutely needs to be replaced.

Whenever in doubt about the efficiency of a carbon monoxide detector, a replacement is recommended. Yes, protection has a price, but a life cannot be replaced.

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 nighthawk carbon monoxide alaram is keep biping


Check your user manual for issues dealing with beeping alarms.

Your local fire department may be able to help educate you on the proper installation and use of Carbon Monoxide Detectors. A CO detector alarm should be taken seriously and you should follow the manufacturer procedures included in the package.

NEVER dismiss a Carbon Monoxide Detector Alarm for a malfunction.
ALWAYS treat an alarm as an emergency and follow manufacturer procedures.

How to fix detector


You don't mention how old the detector is. If it is more than 5 years old the detector may be beeping to indicate the end of its service life. A smoke detector can last much longer but carbon monoxide detectors have a limited life span. If putting in new batteries doesn't fix the problem then most likely you will need to replace it.

Hopefully you have found a solution for your Carbon Monoxide Detector issue of October 4, 2009. The best solution for a questionable CO dectector is a replacement.

A Carbon Monoxide Detector is the only thing that will read, detect and sound an alert when reads dangerous levels of CO levels in your house. A defective carbon monoxide detector will give you and your family a false sense of security and will give you no protection.

Whenever in doubt, always err on the safe side and replace Carbon Monoxide Dectectors, your life depends on it.

Lost manual for the nighthawk carbon monoxide detector, model no.900-0082-00 made in 11/1996. hasnt been used for several years.DON'T KNOW HOW TO SET IT.


Hold on!

All carbon monoxide detectors have to be replaced after 5 years of manufacture date. The sensors are not reliable after that time and may give false readings.

A carbon monoxide detector is your only defense against the hazards of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. I would never recommend installing a used Detector. Ask your local fire department for more professional advice on how and where you should install carbon monoxide detectors.

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.
