Questions & Answers for Garrison Garrison Plug-in Carbon Monoxide Alarm

Question

What is the estimated battery and sensor life of this model?

If it starts beeping periodically does that mean it needs to be replaced? We think it is probably 3-4 years old.

This alarm uses the AC power as its primary source.

The battery is in case of power failure. It should be changed on a yearly basis even if still "good". Even though it seems a waste, remember that if there is a power failure and for some reason CO is released in the house, the battery then needs to power the alarm to make sure you get out safe. That alone requires a fair amount of power.

Never use non alkaline batteries or even rechargeable ones as they are unlike to have enough power to stay at 9V for long.

Question

How to do the testing?

Unlike models with obvious "test button" on the front pannel(eg. 46-0315-4) , this model(46-0019-0) doesn't seem to have "press button".

Without the testing button, then how am I supposed to perform the testing?

In the upper center of the detector is a place to press for testing, on the left of this location it says, "Press to test".

There is a switch on the back to disable the 'removal from power' shrieking. You'll need something with a point to switch it on and off. This will not switch off the detector but it will switch off the warning if it isn't being properly charged. The detector will eventually fail if it isn't properly powered or charged.

The unit is designed to work only if electrical power and battery are installed and functional. The unit will continue to beep to alert you that the unit is disabled.

As a follow up to Garrison's answer, any readings above zero on digital display alarm MUST be taken seriously. It means 1 of 2 things, your alarms is testing (in teh 200's, and quickly changes to zero - may show "888") or there is CO. at 117, that is a significant number and you need to get out and call the fire department - from outside the house. DO NOT VENT the house, it will delay your leaving but also, if it is a slow leak, by the time the FD arrives, they may not register anything. just get out.

Question

What is the lowest level in parts per million (ppm) that this alarm will respond to?

asked 2 years, 4 months ago

answer 1
As dictated by CSA, the CO sensor meets the alarm response time requirements as follows:
At 70 PPM, the unit must alarm within 60-240 minutes.
At 150 PPM, the unit must alarm within 10-50 minutes.
At 400 PPM, the unit must alarm within 4-15 minutes.

A digital display alarm will meet the same requirements but will show low levels down to 11 ppm and higher without alarming.

Is there a minimum distance from the floor that the plug needs to be? Eg. Can I plug it into a receptacle that is about 1.5 feet off the floor

CO does not sink or float in air - it weighs practicaly the same. The only considerations you need to have for CO is within earshot when you sleep (CO makes it harder to wake up) so outside the bedroom area, not in a corner or behind furniture/curtains etc., try to avoid windows and appliances that could produce CO and if you have a smoke CO combo, it must be on the ceiling because of the smoke alarm component.

Question

The CO2 detector is emitting a beep every 30 seconds....says it requires service?

Any idea what kind of service? I replace the battery every year. This is the second CO2 detector that seems to just have failed. (Both Garrison models, manufactured in 2012. So both well before the expiry date.)

There are two immediate possibilities:
1- Make sure you have changed the battery - or if new, that you have removed the yellow tab that stops the battery from connecting.
2- If not new, have a look at the manufacturing date. CO alarms have a limited lifespan based on the CSA approval they have received. Until 2013, no model of CO alarm had a lifespan of more than 7 years and they must be programmed to warn you at the end by chirping every 30 seconds. If it is 7 years or more, then please purchase a new one right away.

If neither situation applies and it is not resolved, please call Kidde Tech Support at 1-800-880-6788. They will be able to help, including warranty replacement if needed.

Please haev a look at the manufacturing date. IF the alarm is 7 years old or more, it is at the end of its lifespan. IF it is less than 7 years, then call the Kidde Hotline at 1-800-880-6788.
