lost power last night and the alarm went off saying warning carbon monoxide for a couple of minutes and stopped. is this normal because the power was interuped ? model kn cope-1c
Asked by: nh
Hello NH. No, this is quite unusual. It could have been a power fluctuation causing the alarm to act abnormally. Try this. Turn off the circuit breaker for your alarms for about 15 minutes, and then unplug some of these alarms and run them on battery alone on a table for 15 minutes. If they don't go off for carbon monoxide, then it probably was a power fluctuation. If they do off, take down these KN-COPE-IC that are doing this and call us at Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788 with those alarms and batteries in hand and we will investigate further and help you with your alarms.

Interconnectability of multiple units

Hello, can I run 6 regular smoke detectors and 1 of these units in the kitchen because we have a gas stove? Currently we have 7 total detectors but they are only smoke detectors. It is time to replace all 7 (10 years old) but I want the ability to detect carbon monoxide in the kitchen since we have a gas stove. I wanted to make sure I can do that and retain the interconnectability of all 7 since they are all hard wired together (on one circuit, when one beeps, they ALL beep).
Asked by: Daniel
Hello DJ Mixmode. In reference to your question, yes, as long as all of the alarm are Kidde brand hardwired products, they will all interconnect with each other through the 3 wire circuit. However, you should know that if the smoke and carbon monoxide alarm goes off for carbon monoxide, it will not set off the smoke detectors. The smoke detectors ignore the signal for smoke. And we wouldn recommend putting a carbon monoxide alarm directly in the kitchen, to avoid nuisance alarms. Carbon monoxide alarms should go near the bedrooms, and there should be one carbon monoxide alarm per floor. If you put one near the kitchen, it should be at least 3 to 5 feet away from the kitchen door. If you have further questions about this, we at Kidde Product Support would be happy to help you with this at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Can I use this model to replace my expired FireX FADCQ units?

I currently have a hardwired system with smoke detectors and two FireX FADCQ smoke and CO detectors. The smoke and CO detectors need to be replaced. Can this model be used to replace them and will they mount on the existing bracket/plates and wiring?
Asked by: Moroti
Hello Moroti. In reference to your question, the new alarms will not work with your older alarms and they will not have the same plug or the same bracket. You will need to take down all of the old alarms on the interconnected circuit before putting up new ones and you will need to re-wire each plug at each location, and you will need to change out the bracket at each location. The new alarms will come with new plugs and new brackets. We do make an adapator, the KA-F adaptor, Model # 900-0153-012, Internet # 202563783, Store SKU # 484927. This adaptor will modify the wiring harness plug from FireX so it will work with the new Kidde and FireX-Kidde alarms. The adaptor will plug into the old FireX plug and the new Kidde alarms will plug into the adaptors. You will still have to change out the brackets. If you have further questions about this, we are happy to help you at Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your help.

Kidde 4 feet from wood stove on ceiling

Model #i12060A. New house, new wood stove and four alarm situations. Now unit shows two red lights each about a second long with a chirp after the second red. Replaced battery. Now have one short red flash and no chirp. Haven't seen a green since one of the previous episodes. Is this unit bad?
Asked by: Gomerpile
Hello. In reference to your question, the green LED (when illuminated) indicates the presence of AC power. In normal standby condition, the red LED will flash every 40 seconds to indicate that the smoke alarm is operating properly. This smoke alarm is equipped with an alarm memory, which provides a visual indication when an alarm has been activated. The red LED will illuminate for about 1.5 seconds every 20 seconds to indicate the memory condition. The memory will remain activated until pushing the Test/Hush Button resets it or will time-out between 11 to 13 hours. In an interconnected installation only the memory of the originating alarm will be activated. In HUSH mode, The red LED will illuminate for 1.5 seconds every 10 seconds, indicating the smoke alarm is in the Hush® mode, or that it will be less sensitive to smoke for about 8 minutes. Sometimes when you press the test button, the alarm will go into HUSH mode. If you are not getting a solid green light, then you are not getting AC power. If you have any further questions about this, you can call us at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

My alarm did one long loud beep the small ones after trying to change battery but battery door won't close?

I slide the door open and now it won't shut
Asked by: Shelby
Hello Shelby. Let me get you to go to: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/ff/ff19ec17-4474-46ce-9ac0-e7b84e15d650.pdf : and look at page 18 and figure 6::: { This alarm also has a battery carrier tamper resist feature which helps prevent the battery carrier from being opened. This feature is effective in preventing the removal of the battery from this device (which will render the unit inoperable during the loss of AC power). To activate the battery carrier tamper resist feature, remove the unit from the trim plate, disconnect the AC quick connector and locate the small cutout in the middle of the product label on the back of the unit. With a small screwdriver, or similar tool, slide the switch towards the top of the label. (see Figure 6) The tamper resist feature is now active and the battery carrier can not be opened until the tamper resist feature is deactivated NOTE: Before activating the battery carrier tamper resist feature, make sure a fresh battery is installed in the unit and that the battery carrier is properly closed. IF THE BATTERY CARRIER TAMPER RESIST FEATURE IS ACTIVATED WHILE THE BATTERY CARRIER IS OPEN, THE BATTERY CARRIER WILL NOT CLOSE and the unit will be inoperable during the loss of AC power. TO DEACTIVATE THE BATTERY CARRIER TAMPER RESIST, in order to change the smoke alarm battery, REMOVE THE UNIT FROM THE TRIM PLATE, DISCONNECT THE AC QUICK CONNECTOR AND LOCATE THE SMALL CUT-OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PRODUCT LABEL. USING A SCREWDRIVER OR SIMILIAR TOOL, SLIDE THE SWITCH TOWARDS THE BOTTOM OF THE PRODUCT LABEL. The battery carrier can now be opened and the battery changed.} I have capitalized the parts relevant to your issue. It sounds like the battery carrier tamper resist has been activated, or that the battery is not being put in properly. If this doesn't resolve your problem, take down the alarm and call us at 1-800-880-6788 at Kidde Product Support with the alarm and new battery in hand and we can help you from there over the phone.

Where do the wires connect to?

The picture shows 3 wires, white, black, and red. Are the white/black connect to the house grid's white/black? What to do with the red wire?
Asked by: GadiK
The red wire is for the interconnect feature - when one alarms goes off, they all go off. This requires that they were wired with 3-wire. If there is no red wire in the house wiring when you go to replace the detector, just leave it capped off as it came.

Had no luck getting any kind of refund from Kidde for the recall, they just offered me a 50% off coupon at an online store, this is not Home Depots problem but It would be nice if Home Depot carried more brands than just Kidde as I wanted a different brand. Hope this one does not get recalled as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Replacement for Old Wired Smoke Detectors Replaced 30 year old hardwired smoke detectors. The box came with a base plate, a detector and a wiring harness with a plug on the end. All I had to do was untwist the old wire nuts, remove the wires to the old plug, match up the wires for the new plug and retwist the wire nuts. I unscrewed the old base plate from the wiring box, put in the new base plate and screwed it in. I connected the new plug to the back of the unit, push it up in place and rotated until it clicked in place. The whole process took less than 5 minutes and was relatively easy. The included battery was dead, causing a slow chirping sound. I replaced it with a new battery. The battery holder is easy to access on the outside of the unit. However, it is tricky to pry open the clip holding the battery in. The clip is quite stiff. I found it impossible to hold open the clip with my fingers. I ended up using a screwdriver to pry it open. Not a good design, particularly for something that needs periodic replacement. I would have given it 5 stars had the included battery been working and had I been able to press the battery clip down with my fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hope I never need to use this purchase I used this alarm as a replacement for a smoke detector that renovator should have installed with CO monitor on two basement levels. Installation was easy because of prior wiring. Originally seemed to be a problem with a smoke detector in a bedroom only connecting with this new smoke detector/CO monitor on same level and not to smoke detectors on other levels of house. Telephone call to Kiddie support suggested that I had not pushed the test button long enough, 10 seconds, and when I did that it showed that all smoke detectors/CO monitors and smoke detectors on three levels and in four bedrooms would alarm from an incident at one monitor. As header says, I hope I never need this purchase for its intended use.

Last night at 3 AM the power outage from heavy rain then the Smoke&CO alarms go off and make a loud noise. Only way to shut off the alarm is to pop open the battery door or reset alarm. This is really annoying me. I have to find a ladder in the dark in a power outage to turn it off. I can't imagine if this happen during I'm on vacation. who is going to turn it off?

Replaced 9 year old units from a different manufacturer that were giving false alarms. After removing the mounting plate and wiring plugs for the old units these wired right in and installed easily. So long as you respect electricity and turn the power off this is an easy project for the DIYer. So far so good after a few weeks. No false alarms! The fact that it talks and tells you what the alarm is instead of trying to interpret lights and beeps, especially when the issue is a backup battery going out. The battery access is nice on this one as well. Opens easily by pushing on it and the batter is held in lightly with a clip. My previous units came out the side of the detector and did not do so easily.
