When the AC power is diconnected and power is restored the system will chirp every 15 seconds with a lb(low battery) or CO reading. If the battery is low it will not stop chirping untill it detects a good battery(life of a batt is normally 1 year) press the test button to reset. The manufacturer recommends replacing the battery every 6 months. try the following link to obtain an owners manual: http://portal.knowledgebase.net/al/15121/16372/article.asp?aid=295593&tab=browse&bt=4&r=0.4353467

I find it interesting that the help line is only available Monday to Friday.I had called 1-800-880-6788 but to no avail. I will have to remind my unit in the future to only have problems during the week....


Everyone seems to be having problems with this Kidde Night Hawk Combo. Must be the nature of the beast. I think that once they came up with a combo unit, rather than two separate units, it was their downfall. But, that's just my professional opinion. Enough of that. Now to answer your question.

According to Kidde, if you received that E02 code, you should return it to them for repair or replacement. But, don't try to do it without a Return Merchandise Authorization. Unfortunately, you'll have to keep calling Monday - Friday. Remember, the are hundreds of other customers calling, too. Try to be patient.

My Kidde "Nighthawk" carbon monoxide


Sounds like you may be due a warranty replacement. Call the Kidde "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 with your Model number, serial number, and manufacturing date. The original sales receipt would be helpful but probably not absolutely necessary. Good luck. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle.

Golding93, you could very well have elevated levels of CO in your home. You should leave your house immediately and call the fire department. However, if your CO alarm is 7 years old, it could also be the alarm's end-of-life warning. Regardless, you should definitely call the fire department to have everything checked out. If you need additional assistance with your CO alarm, please call our customer service line at 1-800-880-6788. Thanks for being a Kidde customer. We appreciate your business!

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.

Model #KN-COPP-3.."Err" along w/occasional beeping. Tried to reset, but it continues to beeps. Other CO alarms in house show zero.


1) Does the display show "Err"? 2) When you press and hold the Peak Level button does the display change to "E09"? If so, then you have just been "had" by the grossly under-documented "planned obsolescence feature" called, rather matter-of-factly, "End of Life". This means that ~7 years after first being powered up, the unit will, BY DESIGN, cease to function, forcing you to buy a replacement. Would have been nice of them to include THAT warning on the OUTSIDE of the package. Call their "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 and tell them what you think of that policy.

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.

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
