Maintenance of your Alarm;
To keep this Smoke/CO Alarm in peak condition:
- Verify the unit's alarm and LED lights operation by pushing the Test/Reset/Hush® button once a week.
- Remove the unit from mounting plate and vacuum the alarm cover and vents with a soft brush attachment at least once a year to remove dust and dirt. Reinstall immediately after cleaning and then test using the Test/Reset/Hush® button.
- Never use detergents or other solvents to clean the unit.
- Avoid spraying air fresheners, hair spray, or other aerosols near the Smoke/CO Alarm.
- Do not paint the unit. Paint will seal the vents and interfere with the sensor’s ability to detect smoke and CO. Never attempt to disassemble the unit or clean inside. This action will void your warranty.
Move the Smoke/CO Alarm to another location prior to performing any of the following:
- Staining or stripping wood floors or furniture
- Painting or wall-papering
- Using adhesives
- Storing the unit in a plastic bag during any of the above projects will protect the sensors from damage.
WARNING: Reinstall the Smoke/CO Alarm as soon as possible to assure continuous protection.
When household cleaning supplies or similar contaminants are used, the area must be well ventilated. The following substances can affect the CO sensor and may cause false readings and damage to the sensor: Methane, propane, iso-butane, isopropanol, ethyl acetate, hydrogen sulfide, sulfide dioxides, alcohol based products, paints, thinner, solvents, adhesives, hair spray, after shave, perfume, and some cleaning agents.
