Q:what do you do to stop the blinking green light?
by|Oct 2, 2020
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  You don't. That is to let you know the alarm is active and working.

A:  Not sure. Went out by itself

by|Aug 11, 2022

A:  Hello. This unit should have a blinking red light that flashes once a minute for the first 10 minutes after you test the alarm and then should only had a red flicker once every 10 minutes. There is a hidden green LED that should only flash at the manufacturing plant when putting the alarm through diagnostics. Call us with the alarm in hand at 1-800-880-6788 so we can figure out what is going on with this alarm.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello Mtr, This is an indication that something has gotten into the unit and tripped the alarm. The red and amber lights are alarm memory. Use a can of compressed air to thoroughly blow out the unit through the side gaps.

                Malfunctions
                The unit malfunctioned and started alarming about a fire when there was nothing wrong. The unit clearly has on and off feature however this was not functionable. You couldn't twist it on or off. We had to compromise the battery and ruin the unit after 15 mins of not getting it to stop. Terrible. This is not the first time. Just the 1st time we couldn't get it to stop. These things malfunction frequently. 10yrs is not a true statement 4 years is a better estimate. Disappointing.

                Hello. You can't twist the screwslot to off until you break the tab on the back of the alarm. But we do understand. It sounds like some dust or debris or an insect got into the smoke chamber of the alarm and the alarm mistook the debris for smoke.False alarms are most commonly caused by something interfering with the sensor. To clean, hold the unit by its edge and thoroughly blow through the gap on the side of the unit with compressed air (like keyboard cleaner). We recommend cleaning out all of your smoke alarms at least every 6 months to a year and at this point we would recommend cleaning out all of your other alarms as well as a preventative.

                Some of your alarms may be in one the locations to avoid listed in the owner's manual. This would especially include alarms being installed within 3 ft (.9m) of a forced air supply ducts used for heating or cooling, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high air flow areas. We recommend that alarms not be installed near vents, flues, chimneys, or fans. We recommend that alarms not be installed near doors or windows near areas directly exposed to the weather. We strongly recommend not to install these alarms in garages, attics, and crawl spaces as you will get temperatures, dust, insects, and chemicals that can cause nuisance alarms.

                Call us with that unit in hand at 1-800-880-6788 and we will see what we can do for you at this point.
                  Randomly Goes Off and doesn't reset
                  I don't know what to say other than I'm greatly disappointed in Kidde. Purchased this at HomeDepot back in July 2020 and over the past few months only this one unit keeps randomly going off in the hallway. Others in rooms or close proximity don't and yes, I cleaned it and blew air in it a month ago due to this issue before. Now last night was the final straw when at 1:30am it went off and I pushed to hush, then around 2am and again around 3am to where it wouldn't even shut off. I wound up taking it down and shoving under some pillows after I finally got the hush to work, but funny in some ways I guess as it went off a short time thereafter even under the pillows though not very loud thankfully. I just wound up disabling the unit per the direcitons on back since enough is enough with this just randomly going off. Broke the tab and turned the disable & discharge and now have to find a replacement though doubt it'll be another one of these since others have similar issues I see. Go QC team!!!!

                    Though 10 years have just started the units preform well and functioned when tested with a very small amount of smoke from a cigarette burning about 4 feet away with normal room air currents moving the smoke. If you put these in and smoke, do so outside as you will set them off.

                    Kidde claims the battery has a ten year life span at which time you discard the smoke detector and replace with a new one. Kidde claims you will never hear that annoying beep indicating it’s time to change the battery. At the end of its ten year life span is the only time you will hear a beep indicating it is time to replace the smoke detector. Have no way of knowing if you will actually get a ten year life but Kidde stands by their product and their claim. If you’ve ever had the battery fail and start beeping in the middle of the night, waking you from a sound sleep, this product eliminates that.... at least until year ten. Finally, installation is a breeze. This smoke detector is probably worthy of 5 Stars, but we’ll see how it performs over the next ten years.

                    Peace of mind for 10 years.
                    Good to have a Smoke alarm that does not bother you about changing the battery. Those battery chirps can be really annoying. The smoke alarm works well and the LED ESCAPE LIGHT is a great safety feature to have. My biggest grudge with the smoke alarm is the mounting hardware which was a bit challenging to mount on a popcorn ceiling.Intentions were right but the design is faulty. Once installed then it is set for 10 years (as stated on the box) We will have to wait to validate :-)

                    Peace of mind...
                    No home should be without this product. Clean, compact and set it and forget it. Honestly don't know that the battery will last 10 years - I guess I can check back and update this review then - HA! One thing I want to mention is the easy open clam shell packaging. I typically DESPISE this type of packaging un-eco friendly and there are more injuries because of it - HOWEVER this was truly an easy open package with perforations for easy removal of the smoke alarm.

                    Easy install and peace of mind
                    Got this smoke alarm to replace a very old one with a dead battery. The main feature that drew me to this unit was the 10-year battery. Most 9v batteries in other alarms I've used only last about a year and always seem to start chirping in the middle of the night! Out of the box I was impressed with the ease of Installation for this alarm. There is a plastic circle mounting bracket with a self-tapping plastic toggle. You will also want to use the supplied screws and anchors to keep the bracket from turning. Once the bracket is installed you twist the alarm onto the bracket and its activated. If you don't use some extra screws then the bracket will turn making it difficult to get the alarm to lock in properly. This install took me a couple minutes and seems much more secure on the wall than the old metal bracket my old alarm used. The test button on this model is also about 2" across. I was easily able to press the test button from the ground with a broom handle so testing this unit is very quick and easy. The old alarm had a small button and took a ladder to reach so it didn't get tested as often as it should have. Finally, this unit has a small LED light to provide some illumination which seems very handy to me in the case of an emergency especially if there was a power outage. Overall, I'm happy with this alarm since it was easy to install, has a long life battery, and comes from Kidde who has a good reputation in the fire safety industry.
