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

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".

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 do you test the detector?

A carbon monoxide alarm has to be replaced every 7 years from the date of installation – the unit is designed to advise you that it has reached the end of his cycle – after seven (7) years from initial power up, this alarm will “beep” every 30 seconds to indicate that it is time to replace the alarm. Replace the alarm immediately! It will not detect CO in this condition.

To test on Carbon Monoxide Alarm – simply press the test/reset button. If the unit is operating properly, you will hear 4 quick beeps – followed by 5 seconds of silence. Ensure that the unit has a working battery (replace them every year) and plug-in to non-switch outlet to ensure full protection at all time.

Question

My alarms are beeping for service.

I bought seven Garrison CO detectors three months ago. After a power outage three weeks ago, we replaced all the batteries. But each of the detectors has started beeping for service. What else could it be?

First make sure you use Duracell or Energizer alkaline batteries. heavy duty and store brands will not be strong enough for the CO alarms.

When replacing batteries, while disconnected and the battery is out, press and hold the test button to make sure the capacitors are emptied. Then insert the battery and press the test button to make sure it is powered - put your hand on the hole in front to reduce the volume.

If the alarm is giving you a long piercing noise without break (solid tone), press down the small pin at the back and using a pointy tool (i.e. pen), slide the small switch towards the pin. This is the power disconnect feature - it is in the manual. It is meant for young children so you know the alarm has been pulled out of the wall.

Any further questions? call tech support at 1-800-880-6788.
