Ok: any suggestions why a realitively new Carbon Monoxide Detector (hardwired into our 2007 Fleetwood Southwind) has decided to scare the #*%t out of me once a day...never at the same time.
One, nerve-jarring BEEP, and if I'm not home to press the test button, it will wait 3 minutes and issue another single, ear-splitting BEEP.
No dust or webs...(I vacuumed it anyway). Once I've pressed the TEST button, and it goes thru several BEEP cycles, then it's quiet...til the next day.
Currently hooked-up to 50amps and nobody parked around us. Label says it's good til 2011.
Any ideas?
Really don't want to yank it from the wall: just tired of having to jump-start my heart each day!

Even though it is hard wired, does it have a battery backup? Maybe that battery needs replacing.

No battery...(which I thought was odd).
Found the instruction manual: not much help. (Vacuum and press TEST button).

Sound like a power interruption or maybe a defective CO detector. I would call Costar for help and maybe get an exchange unit from them.

Thanks Gary and Jim for your replies. Much as I hate too...sounds like I'll have to disconnect til we obtain a replacement.

Anyone else have (or had)one of these monitors with a crazy streak?

Bludog, our fire alarm and carbon monoxide alarms are both battery operated. Only the propane detector (in the kitchen area below the fridge) is hardwired. It goes nuts if DW sprays deodorizer in the cat box which we keep close to there. The propellent in some aerosols can give some of the alarms a workout.
