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.

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.

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?

answer 1
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

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

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.
