British gas carbon monoxide detector problem

Hi, i have a British gas carbon monoxide detector
Model: SF350EN
EN50291:2001

for some reason my carbon monoxide detector keeps beeping around every 1minute, and its really annoying, on the box itself it says if it beeps every 1 minute it's a warning and you need to read the manual about it.

we've haven't got a manual about it and i can find one on the internet so i need help on the problem. its been happening a lot recently.

please post suggestions thanks.

If it is beeping 3 beeps every minute it is at the end of its battery life you can just replace the batteries by prising the cover off carefully.be aware though that the life span guarantee of these is only 5 years.

The Best solution 1 of 2 is WRONG !
3 beeps every minute means end of detector life, NOT end of battery life, which is one beep.
Who was the idiot who gave this duff info ?

Unless your detector is less than 5 years old, it would be false economy and inadvisable to replace the batteries. I understand that the sensor is only guaranteed for 5 years. I suspect that is why battery cover is not meant to be opened after fitting the initial batteries.

    The 1 minute beep shows end of life but if the unit is less that seven years old you should be able to get a free replacement from BG or the manufacturers; SF Detection (part of Honeywell) based in Poole, Dorset. These devices are sold on a "fit and forget" basis and the battery should last the expected life of the unit but may not if the alarm has been activated. The sensors in CO alarms have a limited and undeterminable life which can be effected by outside influences such as heat, humidity and cigarette smoke which can clog up the filter.

    Best practice is to conduct a sensor inclusive test with a test kit such as Detectagas which has been designed especially for this purpose.

My model CG is hardwired and was beeping full tilt, no fire or smoke. could it possibly be carbon monoxide..or is that a separate detector?


We need to know the whole model but if it is CG then that is a combustible gas detector. If it is a carbon monoxide unit, they have a fixed life span and when it is up, they beep telling you to replace the WHOLE thing.

My Kidde Nighthawk Carbon Monoxide detector was beeping shrilly and read gas. When pressed the reset button it read 221. Problem was it was sitting facedown in a box (i'd just taken it from my old...


A reading of 221 ppm carbon monoxide gas is a dangerous level that should be taken seriously. You could try a new battery and reset the detector. If in doubt, always err on the cautious side and have the apartment checked by a professional or by the local fire department.

A new carbon monoxide detector is a small investment that may prevent carbon monoxide poisoning or death.

My carbon monoxide detector just has one sold beep and is not plugged in.


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.

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.

My carbon monoxide detector keeps beeping in spite of replacing thebattery and gives an error code of E09. Also it keeps flashing an err on the led redout. I placed it outside and it is still doing it...


Hopefully you have found a solution for your Carbon Monoxide Detector issue of October 4, 2009. The best solution for a questionable CO dectector is a replacement.

A Carbon Monoxide Detector is the only thing that will read, detect and sound an alert when reads dangerous levels of CO levels in your house. A defective carbon monoxide detector will give you and your family a false sense of security and will give you no protection.

Whenever in doubt, always err on the safe side and replace Carbon Monoxide Dectectors, your life depends on it.
