Customer Questions & Answers

Are there a lot of false alarms for the explosive gas component of model KN-COEG-3?

Asked by: SuzyQ
My experience after 2 months of use is NO false alarms....I have located it in a small furnace room that contains both a natural gas furnace and natural gas water heater. As for placing it in the furnace room when the instructions say not to place in furnace rooms--It was my only common sense option in the raised ranch home.-----In any event if i had a gas leak and had placed the detector in an upstairs location or down stairs bedroom far from the furnace and incoming gas lines It may be tooooo late as the gas would never reach the detector in time.... Am I missing something by placing It in the furnace room for earliest possible detection of a gas leak? Agan,I have had NO false alarms and like the units, but you must take time and educate yourself thru the instructions.

propane

I have propane heat in a room in my garage. I never knew that you had to have a combination detector to have it to detect a propane leak. This unit does detect propane leaks? Just want to be sure before in purchase.

Plug-In Combination Explosive Gas/Carbon Monoxide Alarm Detector with Battery Back-up is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 226.

It's certainly a low-budget smoke detector and feels every bit as much (including the flimsy way it clicks to its mounting plate). The real detractor for me was that it's too small to use as a replacement for normal-sized smoke detectors (the traditional First Alert detectors). Unlike what's shown in some of the pictures, the mounting plate is the same diameter as the rest of the unit. That means the screw holes are too close together to use the existing holes - if you use one of the existing holes in your ceiling, the other hole will be exposed on the outside of the mounting plate.

If you are looking for a basic, affordable and easy to install smoke detector, then this is the one. According to studies, the photoelectric is preferred, but I'm ok with the Ionization smoke alarm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good Bought this to replace the similar unit which aged out (10 years). This has combustible gas in addition to CO. Installs easily: put in the included battery and plug it in.

Especially important for older folks who may have lost part or all their sense of smell. I just turned 74, and was concerned that I may not be able to smell a gas leak if it occurs. Now I feel a lot more secure. The instructions are a bit long, but for good reasons. I encourage each user to read and understand these instructions, to avoid the instinctive mistakes that I might have made otherwise; i.e. placing it in the garage or near the heater in the attic. Sensible design allows the unit to be placed in an easily visible but inconspicuous part of my bedroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to Use Gas/Carbon Monoxide Detector with 9V Battery I wanted a simple to use and reliable gas/carbon monoxide detector with replaceable battery backup. The instructions were straight forward and understandable to setup and use. The provide a 9V battery which is nice. I did have some initial issues with false warnings and indicators that battery was low. The remedy is to remove the battery and re-install as required to eliminate the false warnings. It my case it was three times before success. I checked the battery with a meter which read correct voltage. It was not the battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It could save your life! I purchased these on an impulse buy. I was walking down the water heater isle and saw these at such a great price. I figure I should pick up a few and install them throughout the house. I install them that weekend and forget about them. A few months later, I'm in my bedroom and I hear a loud beeping coming from downstairs. I go to investigate and find my living room full of smoke. The smoke was caused by frayed wires on a home entertainment system. If it wasn't for this alarm, the smoke would go unnoticed leading to an actual fire. At this price, I would say to buy one for your friends and relatives as well. There aren't many gifts that you can give that can save someones life.

Base is way too small, cheap price, and cheaply made. Returned these and swapped for "First Alert" brand. Perfect - price is a little higher than other products like this, BUT, this base is broad enough to cover replacement area, easy to install, comes with a 10 year iodized battery, has a nice look on the outside - hard white plastic. Well worth the price - buy the "First Alert" brand I'm describing.
