Product Overview

The First Alert SC05CN Combination Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector helps protect you and your family from two deadly threats: fire and carbon monoxide. Fire is a deadly threat to every household; it can strike anywhere, any time. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America, yet many people don't know they are suffering from CO poisoning until its too late. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are like the flu, and you might not even know you're in danger at first. This dual smoke and carbon monoxide alarm is an excellent way to protect your family. The SCO5CN uses an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor, the most accurate technology available. The alarm uses photoelectric smoke sensing technology which reduces nuisance alarms, making it ideal for cooking areas. Photoelectric smoke alarms are great for sensing slow smoldering fires quickly. The test/silence button both silences a non-threatening alarm or low battery warning and allows you to test the unit's functionality. The SCO5CN alarm uses different 85-decibel horns and lights depending on whether it's alerting you to smoke or carbon monoxide. A low battery signal alerts you to replace the battery and end-of-life alarm of three chirps alerts you to replace the unit. Two AA batteries are included. 7-year limited warranty. UL listed.

Answer: 
This just happened to me as well.
My wife and I were able to silence the single chirp for about a week. It would beep one time every 24 hours, mostly in the middle of the night. We changed the batteries and continued to silent it and then it wouldn't allow us to silent it anymore. The beeping increased to three times every minute! When you held the button to silence the device it would say "Error: Read More

My wife and I were able to silence the single chirp for about a week. It would beep one time every 24 hours, mostly in the middle of the night. We changed the batteries and continued to silent it and then it wouldn't allow us to silent it anymore. The beeping increased to three times every minute! When you held the button to silence the device it would say "Error: See owners manual." I googled the make and model number to see the manual and the 3 beeps indicated it needed to be replaced. My last ditch effort was to use my shop-vac to blow out the insides in case it was dust or an insect, but no luck. Looks like I will be ordering two as my other unit just started beeping as well!
The date on both of them say 10/19/2010. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 82 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A good idea I've owned this product before. It was very old and it was time to replace it because of its age. It beeped a certain way to let me know to replace it. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy Easy to install and no false alarms after two months August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by as expected Quick shipping. Exactly what I ordered. Great customer service. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased with this product I had finally had it with trying to put 9 volt batteries in a smoke alarm over my head while standing on a ladder. I selected First Alert because it uses easy to insert AAs and because my 20 year old alarms had not included a carbon monoxide detector. They were easy to install, even for this senior female. It's hard to tell how well they work. I hope I never have to find out, but I feel much safer with new alarms installed and I'm happy with the quality. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, great price I purchased this product because it had the dual function for both CO2 and smoke. I wanted the photoelectron smoke detector to stop false alarms in the kitchen and so far it has done the trick. The unit I put upstairs outside the bathroom has actually chirped from the steam after a hot shower. I run the exhaust fan and I can't see the steam however the smoke detector does. Impressive. April 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy install, easy to test - 7 yr warranty - bought 3 - this is great! great price for a combo smoke and carbon dioxide detector! unit appears very solid. April 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Smoke detecters I dont have any thing to say but they work good Battery Operated Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed The alarm was easy to install, the directions for installation and testing very clear. I needed and wanted a smoke plus carbon monoxide detector, and this one really fit my needs. December 30, 2015
