INSTALLATION

WHERE TO INSTALL CO ALARMS
T
he National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that a CO
A
larm should be centrally located outside of each separate sleeping
a
rea in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms. For added protection,
i
nstall additional CO Alarms in each separate bedroom, and on every
l
evel of your home.
If your bedroom hallway is longer than 40 feet (12 meters), install a CO
Alarm at BOTH ends of the hallway.
In a Single-level Home:
Install at least one CO Alarm near or within each separate sleeping
area.
For added protection, install an additional CO Alarm at least 20 feet
(6 meters) away from the furnace or fuel burning heat source.
I
n a Multi-level Home:
Install at least one CO Alarm near or within each separate sleeping
area.
For added protection, install at least one CO Alarm on each level of
the home. If you have a basement, install that CO Alarm at the top
of the basement stairs.
For added protection, install an additional CO Alarm at least 20 feet
(6 meters) away from the furnace or fuel burning heat source.
This unit should receive continuous electrical power. (The battery
is meant for emergency back-up only). Choose an outlet where it
cannot be accidentally unplugged or switched off by children. Keep
small children away from the unit. Teach them not to play with it or
unplug it. Explain what the alarms mean.
WHERE CO ALARMS SHOULD NOT BE
INSTALLED
DO NOT LOCATE THIS CO ALARM:
In garages, kitchens, furnace rooms, or in any extremely dusty,
dirty or greasy areas.
Closer than 15 feet (4.6 meters) from a furnace or other fuel burning
heat source, or fuel burning appliances like a water heater.
Within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of any cooking appliance.
In extremely humid areas. This Alarm should be at least 10 feet
(3 meters) from a bath or shower, sauna, humidifier, vaporizer, dish-
washer, laundry room, utility room or other source of high humidity.
In areas where temperature is colder than 40˚ F (4.4˚ C) or hotter
than 100˚ F (37.8˚ C). These areas include non-airconditioned crawl
spaces, unfinished attics, uninsulated or poorly insulated ceilings,
porches, and garages.
In turbulent air, like near ceiling fans, heat vents, air conditioners,
fresh air returns, or open windows. Blowing air may prevent CO
from reaching the sensors.
In direct sunlight.
In outlets covered by curtains or other obstruction.
This CO Alarm is designed for use inside a single-family home
or apartment. It is not meant to be used in common lobbies,
hallways, or basements of multi-family buildings unless working
CO Alarms are also installed in each family living unit.
CO Alarms in common areas may not be heard from inside
individual family living units.
This CO Alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete
detection systems in places which house many people, like hotels
or dormitories, unless a CO Alarm is also placed in each unit.
DO NOT use this CO Alarm in warehouses, industrial or com-
mercial buildings, special-purpose non-residential buildings, or
airplanes. This CO Alarm is specifically designed for residential
use, and may not provide adequate protection in non-residential
applications.

BASIC SAFETY INFORMATION
Dangers, Warnings, and Cautions alert you to important
o
perating instructions or to potentially hazardous situations.
P
ay special attention to these items.
THIS IS NOT A SMOKE ALARM! This CO Alarm is designed to
detect carbon monoxide from ANY source of combustion. It is
NOT designed to detect smoke, fire, or any other gas.
This CO Alarm is approved for use in single-family residences.
This CO Alarm will only indicate the presence of carbon
monoxide gas at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be
present in other areas.
The Silence Feature is for your convenience only and will not
correct a CO problem. Always check your home for a potential
problem after any alarm. Failure to do so can result in injury or
death.
This CO Alarm should receive continuous 120VAC, 60 Hz, pure
sine wave electrical power. (The battery is meant for emergency
back-up only). Do not use in an extension cord or outlet
controlled by a dimmer or switch. In order for the emergency
battery back-up to work, a working (fresh) battery must be
p
roperly installed.
NEVER ignore your Carbon Monoxide Alarm if it alarms. Refer
to “If Your CO Alarm Sounds” for more information. Failure to
do so can result in injury or death.
Test the CO Alarm once a week. If the CO Alarm ever fails to
test correctly, have it replaced immediately! If the CO Alarm is
not working properly, it cannot alert you to a problem.
This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of
family living units. It is not designed to measure CO levels in
compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) commercial or industrial standards. Individuals with
medical conditions that may make them more sensitive to
carbon monoxide may consider using warning devices which
provide audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide con-
centrations under 30 ppm. For additional information on carbon
monoxide and your medical condition contact your physician.

HOW YOUR CO ALARM WORKS
GENERAL INFORMATION
Leave your CO Alarm plugged in year-round. CO problems can
occur any time during the year, and this Alarm can only alert you if
it is plugged in and receiving power.
This CO Alarm is intended for use in a standard, unswitched 120V AC
wall outlet. It is not intended for use in extension cords, power strips, or
outlets controlled by a switch or dimmer. These may not provide contin-
uous power to the unit. When fully powered, the unit samples the air
and takes a new reading about every second. A microchip inside the
unit stores each reading, and remembers the levels of CO it has been
exposed to over time. The Alarm sounds when it has been exposed to
a “critical” level of CO (measured in parts per million or “ppm”) within
a specified time (measured in minutes). This CO Alarm features a
permanently installed sensor, an indicator light, and an 85dB alarm horn.
It also has a Silence Feature to temporarily quiet the alarm horn.
MALFUNCTION WARNING
This unit performs self-diagnostic tests. If the Alarm malfunctions, it
should be replaced immediately. See "IF THE CO ALARM IS NOT
OPERATING PROPERLY" for more information.

___________________________________________________________
A
larms have various limitations. See "General Limitations of CO
A
larms" for details.
USING THE SILENCE FEATURES
The Silence Feature is for your convenience only and will
not correct a CO problem. Always check your home for a
potential problem after any alarm. Failure to do so can result
in injury or death.
NEVER remove the batteries from your CO Alarm to silence
the horn. Use the silence feature. Removing the batteries
removes your protection! See “If Your CO Alarm Sounds” for
details on responding to an alarm.
T
he Silence Feature is intended to temporarily silence your CO Alarm’s
a
larm horn while you correct the problem—it will not correct a CO prob-
l
em. While the alarm is silenced it will continue to monitor the air for CO.
When CO reaches alarm levels the alarm will sound— repeating horn
pattern: 4 beeps, a pause, 4 beeps, etc. Press and hold the Test/Silence
button until the horn is silent. The initial Silence cycle will last approxi-
mately 4 minutes.
NOTE: After initial 4-minute Silence cycle, the CO Alarm re-evaluates
present CO levels and responds accordingly. If CO levels remain poten-
tially dangerous—or start rising higher—the horn will start sounding again.
While the detector is silenced:
ALARM-MOVE TO FRESH AIR”
I
f you hear the alarm horn and the red light is flashing, move
e
veryone to a source of fresh air. DO NOT unplug the CO Alarm!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CO

WHAT IS CO?
CO is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas produced when fossil fuels
do not burn completely, or are exposed to heat (usually fire). Electrical
appliances typically do not produce CO.
T
hese fuels include: Wood, coal, charcoal, oil, natural gas, gasoline,
k
erosene, and propane.
C
ommon appliances are often sources of CO. If they are not properly
m
aintained, are improperly ventilated, or malfunction, CO levels can rise
q
uickly. CO is a real danger now that homes are more energy efficient.
Air-tight” homes with added insulation, sealed windows, and other
w
eatherproofing can “trap” CO inside.
SYMPTOMS OF CO POISONING
These symptoms are related to CO POISONING and should be
discussed with ALL household members.
Mild Exposure:
Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (“flu-like” symptoms).
M
edium Exposure:
T
hrobbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast heart rate.
Extreme Exposure:
Convulsions, unconsciousness, heart and lung failure. Exposure to
carbon monoxide can cause brain damage, death.
Some individuals are more sensitive to CO than others, including
people with cardiac or respiratory problems, infants, unborn babies,
pregnant mothers, or elderly people can be more quickly and
severely affected by CO. Members of sensitive populations should
consult their doctors for advice on taking additional precautions.
FINDING THE SOURCE OF CO AFTER AN ALARM
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas, which often makes it
difficult to locate the source of CO after an alarm. These are a few of
the factors that can make it difficult to locate sources of CO:
House well ventilated before the investigator arrives.
Problem caused by “backdrafting.”
Transient CO problem caused by special circumstances.
Because CO may dissipate by the time an investigator arrives, it may
be difficult to locate the source of CO. BRK Brands, Inc. shall not be
obligated to pay for any carbon monoxide investigation or service
call.
HOW CAN I PROTECT MY FAMILY?
A CO Alarm is an excellent means of protection. It monitors the air and
sounds a loud alarm before carbon monoxide levels become threatening
for average, healthy adults.
A CO Alarm is not a substitute for proper maintenance of home
appliances.
To help prevent CO problems and reduce the risk of CO poisoning:
Clean chimneys and flues yearly. Keep them free of debris, leaves,
and nests for proper air flow. Also, have a professional check for
rust and corrosion, cracks, or separations. These conditions can
prevent proper air movement and cause backdrafting. Never “cap”
or cover a chimney in any way that would block air flow.
Test and maintain all fuel-burning equipment annually. Many
local gas or oil companies and HVAC companies offer appliance
inspections for a nominal fee.
Make regular visual inspections of all fuel-burning appliances.
Check appliances for excessive rust and scaling. Also check the
flame on the burner and pilot lights. The flame should be blue.
A yellow flame means fuel is not being burned completely and CO
may be present. Keep the blower door on the furnace closed. Use
vents or fans when they are available on all fuel-burning appliances.
Make sure appliances are vented to the outside. Do not grill or
barbecue indoors, or in garages or on screen porches.
Check for exhaust backflow from CO sources. Check the draft
hood on an operating furnace for a backdraft. Look for cracks on
furnace heat exchangers.
Check the house or garage on the other side of shared wall.
Keep windows and doors open slightly. If you suspect that CO is
escaping into your home, open a window or a door. Opening
windows and doors can significantly decrease CO levels.
In addition, familiarize yourself with all enclosed materials. Read
this manual in its entirety, and make sure you understand what to
do if your CO Alarm sounds.
WHAT LEVELS OF CO CAUSE AN ALARM?
U
nderwriters Laboratories Inc. Standard UL2034 requires residential CO
A
larms to sound when exposed to levels of CO and exposure times as
d
escribed below. CO levels are measured in parts per million (ppm) of
C
O over time (in minutes).
U
L2034 Required Alarm Points*:
If the alarm is exposed to 400 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM
BETWEEN 4 and 15 MINUTES.
If the alarm is exposed to 150 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM
BETWEEN 10 and 50 MINUTES.
If the alarm is exposed to 70 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM
BETWEEN 60 and 240 MINUTES.
*
Approximately 10% COHb exposure at levels of 10% to 95% Relative
H
umidity (RH).
T
he unit is designed not to alarm when exposed to a constant level
o
f 30 ppm for 30 days.
C
O Alarms are designed to alarm before there is an immediate life
t
hreat. Since you cannot see or smell CO, never assume it’s not present.
An exposure to 100 ppm of CO for 20 minutes may not affect
a
verage, healthy adults, but after 4 hours the same level may
c
ause headaches.
An exposure to 400 ppm of CO may cause headaches in average,
h
ealthy adults after 35 minutes, but can cause death after 2 hours.
T
his CO Alarm measures exposure to CO over time. It alarms if CO
l
evels are extremely high in a short period of time, or if CO levels reach
a
certain minimum over a long period of time. The CO Alarm generally
s
ounds an alarm before the onset of symptoms in average, healthy adults.

TESTING AND MAINTENANCE

WEEKLY TESTING
Press the Test/Silence button on the Alarm cover until alarm sounds.
During testing, you will hear a loud alarm sequence – 4 beeps, pause,
4 beeps, pause.
The alarm sequence should last 5-6 seconds. If it does not alarm, make
sure the unit is fully plugged into an unswitched outlet. If the unit still
does not alarm, replace it immediately.
If the Alarm ever fails to test properly, replace it immediately.
Products under warranty may be returned to the manufacturer for
replacement. See “Limited Warranty” at the end of this manual.
DO NOT stand close to the Alarm when the horn is sounding.
Exposure at close range may be harmful to your hearing.
When testing, step away when horn starts sounding.
NEVER use vehicle exhaust! Exhaust may cause permanent
damage and voids your warranty.
R
EGULAR MAINTENANCE
To keep the CO Alarm working properly:
Test it every week as described in “Weekly Testing.”
Vacuum the CO Alarm cover at least once a month, using the soft
brush attachment. Never use water, cleaners, or solvents, since
they may damage the unit. Test the Alarm again after vacuuming.
Replace the battery immediately when you hear the “Low Battery
Warning”.
The Low (or Missing) Battery Warning: The horn will “chirp” once a
minute.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
Choosing a Replacement Battery:
This CO Alarm requires one standard 9 volt battery. The following
batteries are acceptable as replacements: Duracell MN1604, Energizer
522, and Ultralife U9VL-J-P. These replacement batteries are commonly
available at local retail stores.
Always use the exact batteries specified by this User’s Manual.
D
O NOT use rechargeable batteries. Clean the battery contacts
a
nd also those of the device prior to battery installation. Install
b
atteries correctly with regard to polarity (+ and -).
Please dispose of or recycle used batteries properly, following
a
ny local regulations. Consult your local waste management
a
uthority or recycling organization to find an electronics
r
ecycling facility in your area. DO NOT DISPOSE OF BATTERIES
I
N FIRE. BATTERIES MAY EXPLODE OR LEAK.
T
o Replace The Battery:
1. Open the battery compartment.
2. Use the thumb guide to remove the old battery.
3. Insert the new battery, making sure it snaps completely into the
battery compartment and cannot be shaken loose.
4
. Close the battery compartment, then test the battery back-up by
p
ressing the Test/Silence button.
5. Plug the CO Alarm back into the outlet.
Keep battery out of reach of children. In the event a battery
is swallowed, immediately contact your poison control center,
your physician, or the National Battery Ingestion hotline at
202-625-3333 as serious injury may occur.
DO NOT spray cleaning chemicals or insect sprays directly on
or near the CO Alarm. DO NOT paint over the CO Alarm. Doing
so may cause permanent damage.
Household cleaners, aerosol chemicals and other contaminants
c
an affect the sensor. When using any of these materials near the
C
O Alarm, make sure the room is well ventilated.
If your home is being fumigated, unplug the unit temporarily and
put it where it will not be exposed to chemicals or fumes. When
fumigation is complete and all traces of fumes clear, plug the unit
back in and retest it.
This CO Alarm is intended for residential use. It is not intended for
use in industrial applications where Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) requirements for carbon monoxide detectors
must be met.
CO Alarms may not waken all individuals. If children or others do not
readily waken to the sound of the CO Alarm, or if there are infants or
family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is
assigned to assist them in the event of an emergency.
CO Alarms will not work without power. This CO Alarm requires a con-
tinuous supply of AC power. Plug into an unswitched 120V AC outlet only.
CO Alarms for Solar or Wind Energy users and battery backup
power systems: AC powered CO Alarms should only be operated with
true or pure sine wave inverters. Operating this CO Alarm with most
battery-powered UPS (uninterruptible power supply) products or square
wave or “quasi sine wave” inverters will damage the Alarm. If you are
not sure about your inverter or UPS type, please consult with the
manufacturer to verify.
This CO Alarm will not sense carbon monoxide that does not reach
the sensor. This CO Alarm will only sense CO at the sensor. CO may be
present in other areas. Doors or other obstructions may affect the rate
at which CO reaches the CO Alarm. For this reason, if bedroom doors
are usually closed at night, we recommend you install a CO Alarm in
each bedroom and in the hallway between them.
CO Alarms may not sense CO on another level of the home. For
example, a CO Alarm on the second level, near the bedrooms, may not
sense CO in the basement. For this reason, one CO Alarm may not give
adequate warning. Complete coverage is recommended. Place CO
Alarms on each level of the home.
CO Alarms may not be heard. The alarm horn loudness meets or
exceeds current UL standards of 85 dB at 10 feet (3 meters). However,
if the CO Alarm is installed outside the bedroom, it may not wake up a
sound sleeper or one who has recently used drugs or has been drinking
alcoholic beverages. This is especially true if the door is closed or only
partly open. Even persons who are awake may not hear the alarm horn
if the sound is blocked by distance or closed doors. Noise from traffic,
stereo, radio, television, air conditioner, or other appliances may also
prevent alert persons from hearing the alarm horn. This CO Alarm is not
intended for people who are hearing impaired.
C
O Alarms are not a substitute for a smoke alarm. Although fire is a
s
ource of carbon monoxide, this CO Alarm does not sense smoke or
f
ire. This CO Alarm senses CO that may be escaping unnoticed from
m
alfunctioning furnaces, appliances, or other sources. Early warning of
f
ire requires the installation of smoke alarms.
CO Alarms are not a substitute for life insurance. Though these CO
Alarms warn against increasing CO levels, BRK Brands, Inc. does not
warrant or imply in any way that they will protect lives from CO poisoning.
Homeowners and renters must still insure their lives.
CO Alarms have a limited life. Although the CO Alarm and all of its
parts have passed many stringent tests and are designed to be as
reliable as possible, any of these parts could fail at any time. Therefore,
you must test your CO Alarm weekly.
C
O Alarms are not foolproof. Like all other electronic devices, CO
A
larms have limitations. They can only detect CO that reaches their
s
ensors. They may not give early warning to rising CO levels if the CO
i
s coming from a remote part of the home, away from the CO Alarm.

END OF LIFE SIGNAL. CO Alarm needs to be
replaced.
Immediately replace the CO Alarm.
If you have any questions that cannot be answered by reading this manual, call Consumer Affairs at 1-800-323-9005.
Why is this important? Because you need to be warned of a potential
CO problem while you can still react in time. In many reported cases of
CO exposure, victims may be aware that they are not feeling well, but
become disoriented and can no longer react well enough to exit the
building or get help. Also, young children and pets may be the first
affected. The average healthy adult might not feel any symptoms when
the CO Alarm sounds. However, people with cardiac or respiratory
problems, infants, unborn babies, pregnant mothers, or elderly people
can be more quickly and severely affected by CO. If you experience
even mild symptoms of CO poisoning, consult your doctor immediately!
Standards: Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Single and Multiple Station

A
ccording to Underwriters Laboratories Inc. UL2034, Section 1-1.2:
Carbon monoxide alarms covered by these requirements are intended
t
o respond to the presence of carbon monoxide from sources such as,
but not limited to, exhaust from internal-combustion engines, abnormal
operation of fuel-fired appliances, and fireplaces. CO Alarms are
intended to alarm at carbon monoxide levels below those that could
cause a loss of ability to react to the dangers of Carbon Monoxide
exposure.” This CO Alarm monitors the air at the Alarm, and is designed
to alarm before CO levels become life threatening. This allows you
precious time to leave the house and correct the problem. This is only
possible if Alarms are located, installed, and maintained as described in
this manual.

v
enting: corroded or discon-

Improper use of appliance/
device: operating a barbecue
grill or vehicle in an enclosed
area (like a garage or screened
porch).
Transient CO Problems: “transient” or on-again-off-again CO problems
can be caused by outdoor conditions and other special circumstances.
T
he following conditions can result in transient CO situations:
1. Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel appliances caused by
outdoor conditions such as:
Wind direction and/or velocity, including high, gusty winds. Heavy
a
ir in the vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods
b
etween cycles).
• Negative pressure differential resulting from the use of exhaust fans.
• Several appliances running at the same time competing for limited
fresh air.
Vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers,
f
urnaces, or water heaters.
Obstructions in or unconventional vent pipe designs which can
a
mplify the above situations.
2. Extended operation of unvented fuel burning devices (range, oven,
fireplace).
3. Temperature inversions, which can trap exhaust close to the ground.
4. Car idling in an open or closed attached garage, or near a home.
These conditions are dangerous because they can trap exhaust in your
home. Since these conditions can come and go, they are also hard to
recreate during a CO investigation.
POTENTIAL SOURCES OF CO IN THE HOME
If the CO Alarm...
Is silent for only 4 minutes,
then starts sounding loudly—
4 beeps, pause,
4 beeps, pause
This means...
CO levels are still potentially
dangerous.
If the CO Alarm...
Remains silent after you
pressed the Test/Silence
button
This means...
CO levels are dropping.
