Answer: 
The OLD device was chirping BEFORE I read the old directions & then I bought the new one - a plug-in with a battery back-up. Easy to put in the back-up battery of the new one and then plug it in & get a green light. No problems!

Hello. In reference to your question, it sounds like the battery has gone low from the alarm running just on battery. This unit can only run on battery alone for up to 20 hours. You can not use this alarm as a battery-only alarm. If this doesn't answer your questions, please call us at 1-800-880-6788 with the alarm itself in hand and with the battery, and we will be happy to help you. Thank you for your Read More

The monitor should be at least 15 feet away from gas appliances in order to avoid false alarms. Additionally, it should be kept away from dusty areas and areas that are prone to have insects.

Hello Maryann. We recommend keeping the carbon monoxide alarms at least 15 feet away from gas appliances to avoid nusiance alarms and out of areas prone to dust and insects. If you only have one, it should go near the bedrooms and not the gas appliances. We are Kidde Product Support at 1-800-880-6788. Thank you for your interest.

Answer: 
Hello Dana, a 60 second chirp is a low battery chirp. Please try unplugging the alarm and see if it chirps on battery only. If not, it is chirping because it is not getting battery power. Please uninstall, then reinstall the batteries. If you have any issues after doing so, please call Kidde Product Support when you are with the alarm and they will be able to walk you through resolving the issue Read More

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Effective product Un packaging was the hardest part, pull the battery tabs, and plug right into the wall for instant operation. Well designed product. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install, reasonable price. All you have to do is insert two fresh AA batteries into the battery compartment in the back of the device and then plug it into a standard wall electrical outlet. The green light indicates they're working. I had to buy these for an appraisal inspection in connection with a refinance on my house (needed one for each floor), and they did the trick. They're easy to test and squeal loudly when tested, but the sound is very brief. My house is a newer one, so I doubt I will ever have a CO problem. I assume these would work if there were one, but I hope I never have to find out. If I had not been required to have these for the re-finance, I would not have bought them. But for about $100 for the two, it was well worth it in order to qualify for a great rate with no points. Cheap, easy to install, test without difficulty, and satisfied the appraiser. I'm happy with the purchase. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by straight-forward plug-n-go product I plugged it in the outlet and hit the test button and it sounded. So I suppose the unit will work when and if it is needed! July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase Instructions clear, easy to install, includes battery July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great! Plugs right in and good to go. So far so good! Thanks! June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I needed I like the plug in feature. Hard to really test out since I don't have CO in the house. But seems like it's working fine. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install, peace of mind I thought I was going to have to wrestle this unit out of the plastic, but it has an easy open design with perforations in the plastic (see photo). Item looks nice, functions well and is reasonably priced. Only wish Kiddie, "the worlds largest manufacturer of fire safety products," had a recycling program and/or cradle to grave business model. They state in their core values that they "are environmentally responsible and drive to sustainability." By doing what...? July 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good alarm This alarm is powered by an AC outlet but also has a battery backup in case you lose power. The batteries come already installed. All you need to do to use the battery backup is to remove a plastic tab that is coming from the battery compartment. The light on the front indicates if something is wrong with the unit or air quality. Green is good, red is bad. The instructions state that the unit does self checks to ensure everything is working correctly. There is a test button on the front. When pressed, the alarm sound is nice & loud & will certainly alert most people that something is wrong. I would definitely take the 5 minutes to read the instructions when you install this. There is a lot of good info in there, and some minor details that are good to know about this device. Lastly, this alarm is good for 10 years once powered up. After 10 years, annoying alarms will force you to throw it away. August 4, 2015
