Question about Kidde Nighthawk Combo Gas/co Detector
The alarm went off and the digital reading said GAS-then flashed a code: 226. Any idea what that refers to? The gas company came over and got zero redings for explosive gas.
I just had the same problem (second time in about two months this has happened). I went to the manual, as recommended, and they had this helpful bit of information:
Q. What do the numbers mean on the digital display when
I press the “Test/Reset” button?
A. The numbers you see when you press the Test/Reset button
are NOT a CO reading or a Gas alarm. This is a simulated reading
the alarm displays as it tests its electronics. The numbers displayed
when the Test/Reset button is pushed should be between
100 to 400 (usually around 200). These numbers are shown after
the “Gas” test is complete.
Then later, they give another helpful tip...if the system does not work as described, replace it immediately. Good advice. I wonder what manufacturer I'll try this time. Repeated false alarms render these things utterly useless.
