We purchased a 2009 Phaeton back in March. Within 3 months our combo detector started going off intermittently as well and was becoming quite a nuisance as the frequency began increasing. After researching the issue, I found that the detectors can simply "go bad" within 3 - 5 years of manufacturer. Since ours was about 4 years old, I simply opted to replace the unit since we didn't want didn't want to risk sleeping without a detector. I found a new one on eBay for about $100 less than anywhere else and it's worked like a charm. Best of luck!

Seems like it always needs atrigger to set it off. Can be as simple as turning on a light switch. It is usually something electrical. I am suspecting the sensor is very sensitive to electrical voltage spikes? Planning on replacing the sensor now that we are back from our trip

co monitor

Mine started going off for no reason also. I finally gave up and disconnected it. Called the company and got a return number to send it in and have it serviced, Just before I packaged it, i hooked it back up and tried it one more time. It has worked ever since. What the heck ?????

Some things just need to be taken a part and put back together every so often. Shake out the dust, push something back into alignment wake up the genie (or put it to sleep).

I used compressed air from my compressor. That canned stuff has nasty chemicals in it to keep kids from huffing it. Took a couple tries, but it does work now.

All CO detectors have a useful life. I think they are made to work for around 5 years although some may function longer. At that point they must be replaced. There is an internal chemical process that diminishes over time. This was the case for a CO detector that was used in my home.
