Carbon Monoxide Alarm

Sitting at a state park in the woods of north Florida and the CO alarm goes off for Low alarm where CO = less than 100 ppm. Tried unplugging it to reset it to no avail. What could cause this alarm to go off?

co detector

Co detector will go off when the batteries are low (house batteries) or when the unit it self is going bad. The other source of course is co or propane being detected. I just had to replace mine. It was doing the same as yours and it was 8 years old. They do wear out. New unit bought on line. Works great.

Possible causes

I just sprayed the computers with a dust remover spray - the label does not mention propane, DW is cooking on propane stove, detector is original - as far as I know - and I will be replacing it ASAP. Thanks.

Don't ignored it as it could be a real problem. Your gas stove or furnace could be having issues but if nobody has any symptoms I would suspect your CO2 monitor is going bad. The only last 5-7 years on average. But, get it checked out ASAP.

Hi Wildman,
Sorry for your problems,but I have a 2011 Damon Daybreak and the CO detector kelp going off in the middle of the night and I would get up and check everything and couldn't find anything wrong so the next day I went to Walmart and bought a battery powered CO and Propane detector and put it beside the other one and the hard wired one was defective so mine was just 3 yrs.old.I looked at the front of the thing and it said need to replace 2015 so it didn't last that long so I had it replaced with other things that went wrong like Transfer Switch,Microwave,the TV but when the Techs hooked everything back up it took out another microwave and Transfer Switch so THOR is saying it was another bad Switch so waiting to get that replaced again.Good Luck

Thanks for all the feedback. Replaced the old detector with new CO and smoke detector and all seems back to normal.
