It has to be taken apart and the sensor has to be cleaned with a mild soapy solution and completely air dried before you apply power to it again.

Will Kidde wireless smoke alarm model interlink with Kidde wireless smoke and carbon monoxide model

My Kidde Model 1285 keeps chirping even after I changed the batteries, any ideas why?


Be sure you are using a well known brand battery. The store brands, in my my opinion generally are not quite up to par. Try this and see if the chirp will stop. Thanks for asking me.

My Kidde Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide detector was beeping shrilly and read gas. When pressed the reset button it read 221. Problem was it was sitting facedown in a box (i'd just taken it from my old...


A reading of 221 ppm carbon monoxide gas is a dangerous level that should be taken seriously. You could try a new battery and reset the detector. If in doubt, always err on the cautious side and have the apartment checked by a professional or by the local fire department.

A new carbon monoxide detector is a small investment that may prevent carbon monoxide poisoning or death.

How can I shut off my Kidde carbon monoxide detector when beeping


Here is the link to the manual for your Kidde model KN-COB-LCB-A
Carbon Monoxide Detector. This may help you solve your issue.

You may find more related information on my website. If you need a replacement or you need to add additional Carbon Monoxide Detectors in other levels of your house, you can purchase them here.

This issue should be solved immediately, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning can only be avoided by making sure you have good working CO Detectors in your house, camp or recreational vehicle.

Kidde smoke alarm won't stop chirping . I have replaced the batteries and nothing seems to fix the problem


Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.

We have a Kidde and it beeps and flashes a 16, then goes back to 0.


I think you mean it flashes lb (low battery). Change the 9v battery in the unit. Be sure to use a fresh alkaline battery.

My kidde smoke and carbon monoxide alarm keeps beeping and saying low battery and i don't have a manual how do i open it so i can change the battery?


You will need to remove the unit from the ceiling to reveal the battery compartment on the back. It should just need to be rotated counter clockwise a small amount and will then come loose from the bracket. When installing a new battey be sure to press the battery reminder finger down into the battery compartment or the battery door will not close. Call the Kidde (pronounced kid-a) hotline if you have problems 1.800.880.6788
