Our carbon minoxide detector started beeping 3 beeps, but once we unplugged it it stopped beeping. Now it just beeps when we hit the reset it starts again. Should we be concerned?

SOURCE: carbon monoxide detector err code

You are going to hate this as much as I did!
In the manual you will read this ..

Manual for Kidde Nighthawk C02 Detector
On page 13
----------------------------------
Unit Malfunction
In the rare event that your alarm malfunctions,
it will alert you with a short “chirp” and the red
LED will flash once every 30 seconds. The
digital model will display “Err” as shown in
Fig. 6.
Seven years after initial power up, this unit will "chirp" every
30 seconds to indicate that it is time to replace the alarm.
The unit will not detect CO in this condition. Please replace
immediately.

SOURCE: My Kidde carbon monoxide alarm beeps once every 35

Hi,

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.

Cheers

SOURCE: My carbon monoxide detector just has one sold beep

I assume you mean your carbon monoxide detector has one solid beep, and it is probably an AC unit. It may be safe to assume that it has battery backup if it is beeping without being plugged in.

First, you may replace the battery with a new one, plug it in and hit the reset button. If that doesn't work, you could bring it in to your local fire department to have it tested.

Check the expiry date on the Carbon Monoxide Detector. It should be replaced if it is more than 5 to 7 years old, check manufacturer recommendations.

A replacement carbon monoxide detector will give you the protection you need and peace of mind. Your safety depends on how fast you deal with this issue.

SOURCE: 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.

I have two firex smoke and carbon dectectors, and 3 smoke detectors in bedrooms.


do they beep three times, pause then beep three times again? if so, they are going into alarm. since they all ring together, the only way to tell which one is causing the problem is to look for one where the leds are different than the others. If your detectors are more than 10 years old, replace them all as required by the national fire code (NFPA72). If they are only doing single chirps, that is usually an indication of a low battery...perhaps the breaker for the circuit has tripped causing them to run on battery only. good luck

4 beeps with pauses for 2 year old carbon monoxide detector


I'm pretty sure that indicates an alarm. The pattern is referred to as "temporal 4" which is the alarm pattern for CO. Either your device is in a bad place or there is an intermittent CO leak which is exceeding the ppm (parts per million) threshold for a given time period. The instructions for the device will tell you what that number is. If you have more than one of these, I would try swapping them to determine if the problen is with the device or the location. Good luck!

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.

Allow fresh AIR to flow into and see if the error message changes, maybe blow into fresh air. If not there is fault in the sensor or a poor calibration of the sensor, failure of the detector processor unit.

How to fix detector


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.
