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.

My camper has been in storage for 2 months. The carbon monoxide detector beeps every 30 seconds. I pushed the reset button and it does no longer beep. Is it still safe to use this detector?


Dale, My alarms beep like that to warn me of batteries needing replaced. What I do is hit the test button and ensure it sounds. I would still replace the battery(ies) and retest when you do.

My Kidde carbon monoxide alarm keeps beeping every 30 seconds and we have put new batteries in it but it keeps beeping


Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (Its not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon Amazon com smoke alarm detector (watch out on reviews). I hope this was helpful. cheers

Beeps every 30 seconds. New batteries and still beeps every 30 seconds


If the replacement battery you used was fresh out of a package and not a recycled battery, the unit may simply need cleaning. As they do become clogged with dust and lint.

To accomplish this, you will need a can of compressed air that has a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). Remove the newly installed battery and us the battery compartment as a portal to blow air (using the straw nozzle) into the detector. Don't just blow in one place, shift the nozzle around as much as possible. If you can get the cover off, so much the better. Then blow out the sensing vents on the front. Wait a few minutes and reinstall the battery. If it continues to chirp, press the reset button.

This should solve your problem. Remember to clean any and all smoke or carbon monoxide detectors at least every 6 months.

My nighthawk Kidde carbon monoxide detector keeps beeping every 25-30 seconds. Do I need to buy a new one?


Some models of Carbon Monoxide Detectors will give an audible beep every 25-30 seconds after it has sounded an alert alarm. This may have happened when there was noone home to hear it. A periodic beeping sound may also indicate it is time to change the battery.

Solution: Install a new battery and check your manual for instructions on how to reset the system. Check the expiry date on your unit, it needs to be replaced after 5 to 7 years, according to the manufacturer specifications.

If you are in doubt that your Carbon Monoxide Detector is not working effectively, REPLACE IT. Your safety and your peace of mind is worth it.
