Question about Kidde Nighthawk Combo Gas/co Detector

Open Question

Hi, I have a Nighthawk carbon monoxide/explosive gas alarm (KN-COEG-3)that now is displaying "Err" and chirping every 30 seconds. It is plugged in and has a new battery. I have reset it with no change in the reading or chirping except for the loud alarm sound when I press the reset button. After pressing the reset button, the unit beeps loudly and continuously at one second intervals as it should for propane/methane detection and will not stop until I unplug it and remove the battery. I have removed the unit from its position near a water heater and am now working with it in an area with no gas sources and fresh air flow. The problem with the unit continues. What is the "Err" reading and how do I remove it? Thanks.

SOURCE: what does an err code E03 mean?

Correct. Intermittent beeping is a sign of "component failure". Time for a new one.

SOURCE: what does an err code E03 mean?

Malfunction signal - Component failure. An intermittent "chirping" alarm will sound every 30 seconds, and an "Err" message will appear on the digital display. The only solution is to discard it entirely and replace with a new gas & carbon monoxide alarm.

My unit keeps chirping every 30 seconds even after replacing the batteries. The unit is over 5 years old.


The manufacturer has written this in their manual for your unit...

"Err" displayed -battery icon may show any state of battery capacity. One quick beep every 30 seconds. Unit is Error condition

Replace batteries. If "Err" (or blank display) continues, unit has malfunctioned. Replace immediately.

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.

Chirp every 30 second


Hi,

There are 2 things you can do:
1. Check and change batteries.
2. Clean them. Ensure they are completely clean.

If that does not work, you can ask the local fire dept. to look into it free.

Other than that you will have to take it in for servicing/repair.

Carbon monoxide detector err code


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