Manometer Loaner Program
Do you have a detector that registers a level/peak level or did the alarm sound? If it has a display showing a number, have you been checking it daily or did you just notice it today? Just wondering if there has been CO in your home other than just today.
If you give us some details of your set-up (chimney, stove setup details, etc) maybe we can figure something out. This is a new installation right?

I guess that was too much for it, I couldn't get it to stop, then it went into beep every 30 seconds and "Err" on the display. Read the instructions and realized it was toast. Happens to be 5 1/2 years old.
I really didn't want to be without a functioning detector, so out I went for a new one.
For $45 I could get the same plug in unit with a battery back up, a 5 year warranty and a 7 year lifespan. For $5 more I bought the sealed battery unit with a 10 year warranty and a 10 year lifespan.

Don't forget to write the purchase date on the new unit in Sharper marker. That's a date you are sure to forget but need to keep track of. Lisa
