SOURCE: every hour my detector beeps and the green lights

If it only beeps once and then pauses, the batteries are suspect. The batteries should be replaced twice each year. I like to change them when we change the clocks back and forth.
I hope that this helps.

Hint you can test them with a match (blow it out) and let the smoke rise into the detector. I recommend that this be done at lease once a year.

Hope this helps

New smoke detector, light flashing green, is that right

did you connect it to the electricity? this unit is not battery only; it requires connection to the household electricity. the only thing i could find in the manual makes it look like it's indicating low battery, but if it's not chirping once per minute as well then i would guess that it's looking for power

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

copied from the manual, available at the kidde website

RED AND GREEN LED INDICATORS This smoke alarm features separate red and green LED indicators. The LEDs indicate the following: GREEN LED CONSTANT ON - AC power is present. OFF - AC power is not present. RED LED - Can be seen through the Push-to-Test button. Blinks once a minute - Indicating presence of a working battery. Blinks once a second - Smoke alarm senses smoke and simultaneously sounds an audible alarm. Blinks once every 10 seconds - Smoke alarm is quieting an unwanted alarm (Model ADC only). (Interconnected system only): OFF - Another smoke alarm in the network has sensed smoke and is signalling this alarm.

I have 6 smoke detectors & two CO2 detectors hardwired in. The smoke detector in the kitchen went off and now all the detectors will not stop alarming. How do I reset?

First of all, you really should not have a smoke detector in the kitchen as it will be far too prone to false alarms, especially since most household smoke alarms are ionization type, which respond to the presence of gases caused by combustion. A proper system as recommended by NFPA will have one detector in each bedroom, one in each bedroom hallway, and recommended one per floor thereafter, with placement being near exit points to help guide you to the exit during an actual fire (by sound, since it's difficult to see through smoke). I would be inclined to remove that device or try to find a heat detector replacement, such as Kidde Model # HD135F. For now I would vacuum out the device or try a can of compressed air to blow it out, but I would not leave that device long term.

Do you have to have a propane detector in your house?

Hello .. In most places , there are no requirements for detectors in a single family residence. It is advised that the bedroom areas be protected wioth smoke detectors and each floor haver a CO2 detector , If you have propane in use in your house , then you may want a detector for that also.
In a multi family or commercial residence, the smoke and CO2 detectors are required, for each bedroom area, the common stairways, and basement.

RTealistically , with a normal sized propane tank , like on a grill , it would not be as dangerous in a large home as it would be in a camper, The propane is heavier and will stay down, and you would probably smell it before it was at a dangerous level.

I believe that they are standard on most new RV's

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.

All alarms go off; 1 of 6 alarms has a flashing green light

Your alarms are interconnected, meaning when one alarm goes off, they all go off. The alarm with the flashing green light is the one that triggered the alarm. If it only went off once, it was probably just fluke thing, and you can reset the alarm memory (flashing green light) by pressing the test button. If it happened more than once, you should try cleaning the alarm. Do this by removing the alarm, and blowing compressed air into the sensor opening (located around the back side perimeter of the alarm). If this fails, replace it.
