1. INFORMATION ABOUT CARBON MONOXIDE
WHAT IS CARBON MONOXIDE?
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a highly toxic, invisible, odorless, and tasteless gas.
HOW IS CO GENERATED IN THE HOME?
Carbon monoxide is generated through incomplete combustion of fuel in various
home appliances. Faulty ventilation of furnaces, water heaters, fireplaces, wood
burning stoves, and space heaters are the major cause of high CO levels in the home.
Automobile and small engine exhaust are another source of CO.
HOW DOES CO POISON PEOPLE?
The human body depends on oxygen for the burning of fuel (food) to provide us
with the energy that allows our cells to live and function. Oxygen makes up
approximately 21% of the atmosphere and enters our lungs when we breathe. In our
lungs the oxygen combines with the hemoglobin in the blood (oxyhemoglobin), and is
carried in the blood stream throughout the body where it releases oxygen to the cells.
Carbon monoxide is dangerous because it bonds more tightly to the hemoglobin
(carboxyhemoglobin, COHb) than oxygen does. When CO combines with hemoglobin,
the hemoglobin's ability to combine with oxygen is lost. As the COHb concentration
rises, people become nauseous, unconscious, and ultimately die.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING?
Many people often confuse carbon monoxide poisoning with the flu, the initial
symptoms being very similar. Different concentrations of CO over various lengths of
time cause different symptoms.
Many cases of carbon monoxide poisoning indicate that while the victims were
aware they were not well, they were also too disoriented to save themselves by either
calling for assistance or exiting the building. Also, due to size, small children and pets
are generally the first affected.
The following are the symptoms related to CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING.
Discuss them with all members of the household.
MILD EXPOSURE: Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often described
as “flu-like” symptoms)
MEDIUM EXPOSURE: Severe throbbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast
heart rate
EXTREME EXPOSURE: Unconsciousness, convulsions, cardiorespiratory failure,
brain damage, death

RECOMMENDED LOCATION OF ALARMS
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends the use of "at
least one CO alarm per household located outside each sleeping area." (See diagrams
"A" and “B”)
CO poisoning can happen anywhere in the home, but because most CO poisoning
cases occur while people are sleeping, the best location for the CO alarm is near the
sleeping area in the home. If there is more than one sleeping area in the home or on a
different floor, or if bedroom doors are closed during the night, you may need more than
one CO alarm.
Carbon monoxide at room temperature [68oF (20°C)] is slightly lighter than air
(density of 0.96716). However, at 32oF (0°C) carbon monoxide is much heavier than air
(density of 1.250). Because the density of CO at room temperature is close to the
density of air, it disperses easily through the air, similar to the scent of perfume
dispersing uniformly in all directions. This characteristic makes it possible for CO alarms
to be mounted anywhere in the room or hallway, including both wall and ceiling areas.
1. Locate the first alarm in the immediate area of the bedrooms. If more than one
sleeping area exists, locate additional alarms in each sleeping area.
2. Locate an alarm inside every room where someone sleeps with a door closed. The
closed door may prevent the alarm from waking the sleeper.
3. Locate an alarm on every level of the home. (See diagrams “A” and “B”)

6. FEATURES AND OPERATION
OPERATION: The CO alarm is operational once a battery is installed and testing is
complete. The green LED will blink once per minute. For models 7035/7035SL, the
LCD will also continuously display “ On” to indicate that the CO alarm has power.
LOW BATTERY CONDITION: When the battery voltage drops below an acceptable
level, the alarm will chirp once per minute and the green LED will blink for 5 seconds at
the same time. For models 7035/7035SL, the LCD will also continuously display “bAt”.
The battery should be replaced immediately for uninterrupted protection. Please see
Section 5 for information regarding battery replacement.
SERVICE (TROUBLE) CONDITION: An internal microcontroller continuously monitors
the sensor function and other critical components. If an internal failure of any of these
components should occur, the alarm will chirp twice per minute and the red LED will
blink for 5 seconds at the same time. For models 7035/7035SL, the LCD will also
continuously display “Err”. The trouble condition indicates a problem with the unit.
Please see Section 12 for information regarding service.
LIFE MONITOR (END-OF-LIFE) CONDITION: The electrochemical sensor has an
estimated life expectancy of five years. Once the battery is installed or activated, a
microcontroller monitors the total time that the alarm is under power. After five years of
service, the “End-of-Life” signal will be activated; the alarm will chirp once per minute
and the red LED will glow for 1 second at the same time. For models 7035/7035SL, the
LCD will also continuously display “End” to indicate that the sensor life has expired and
the alarm should be replaced.
ALARM CONDITION: When CO gas is detected at a level and duration specified in
Section 2 CO RESPONSE TIME, the horn will sound and the red LED will flash. The
alarm signal will sound 4 short beeps every 6 seconds for 5 minutes, and thereafter 4
short beeps every minute until manually or automatically reset. The red LED will flash 4
times every 6 seconds until the CO gas which caused an alarm activation has cleared.
See Section 8 for information about manual and automatic alarm reset.
TEST/RESET BUTTON: The TEST/RESET button is used to check the alarm for proper
operation and to temporarily mute horn for 5 minutes when alarm is activated, for 24
hrs. during the first week of a “Low Battery” signal activation, or for 60 hrs. during the
first month of an “End-of-Life” signal activation.
LCD DISPLAY FUNCTION (FOR MODELS 7035/7035SL): When alarm is operating
normally, the LCD will continuously display “On”. If room temperature exceeds 120°F
(48°C), the LCD will display “On” for 1 second every minute. If a CO level of 40 ppm or
more is detected, or alarm is activated, the LCD will display current CO level detected
up to 600 ppm. The LCD will display 600 ppm for CO levels detected above 600 ppm.
MEMORY RETRIEVAL OF CO LEVELS DETECTED (FOR MODELS 7035/7035SL):
To display the current and highest CO level detected, tap the TEST/RESET button. The
LCD will display the recorded data in the following order:
1. The current CO level detected from 10-600 ppm,
2. The peak or highest CO level detected from 10-600 ppm, and
3. The total length of time the alarm has detected the peak CO level from 0-999
minutes. Each reading will appear for five seconds.
To erase the record in memory, press and hold the TEST/RESET button until all three
readings have been displayed, the alarm bursts a long beep, and the display reads

ON OR NEAR YOUR ALARM: Certain kinds of aerosol chemicals will damage the
sensor and cause improper operation. The dwelling must be well ventilated when using
household cleaning supplies or similar contaminants.
8. WHAT TO DO WHEN THE ALARM SOUNDS
! WARNING
Actuation of this device indicates the presence of carbon monoxide (CO) which
can KILL YOU.
If alarm signal sounds:
1) Operate reset/silence button;
2) Call your emergency services (tel. no. _______________________________)
[fire department or 911];
3) Immediately move to fresh air - outdoors or by an open door or window. Do
a head count to check that all persons are accounted for. Do not re-enter
the premises or move away from the open door/window until the emergency
services responders have arrived, the premises have been aired out, and
your alarm remains in its normal condition.
4) After following steps 1- 3, if your alarm reactivates within a 24 hour period,
repeat steps 1-3 and call a qualified appliance technician (tel. no.
________________________________) to investigate for sources of CO from
fuel burning equipment and appliances, and inspect for proper operation of
this equipment. If problems are identified during this inspection, have the
equipment serviced immediately. Note any combustion equipment not
inspected by the technician and consult the manufacturers' instructions, or
contact the manufacturers directly, for more information about CO safety
and this equipment. Make sure that motor vehicles are not, and have not
been, operating in an attached garage or adjacent to the residence.
MANUAL RESET: You can temporarily silence an audible alarm signal by pressing the
TEST/RESET button. The red LED will flash 4 times, and the models 7035/7035SL will
display “OFF” for 5 seconds and then continue to display CO levels detected for 40 ppm
or more. If 70 ppm or more continues to be detected, the audible and visual alarm
signals will be automatically reactivated within 5 minutes. Do not wait to see if the alarm
is reactivated; follow above instructions immediately.
-9-
AUTOMATIC RESET: If a CO alarm activation is not manually reset, the horn will
sound for at least 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, the alarm will automatically reset itself
and return to normal operation if the CO which caused the alarm activation has cleared.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM HOME and you return to find your alarm(s)
sounding, DO NOT ENTER YOUR HOME. Call the Fire Department from a
neighbor's home. DO NOT RE-ENTER YOUR HOME FOR ANY REASON UNTIL
YOU HAVE BEEN ASSURED THAT IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.
Conditions which can result in transient CO situations:
1) Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel burning appliances caused by
outdoor ambient conditions, such as:
i) Wind direction and/or velocity, including high gusts of wind. Heavy air in
the vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods between cycles).
ii) Negative pressure differential resulting from the use of exhaust fans.
iii) Simultaneous operation of several fuel burning appliances competing for
limited internal air.
iv) Vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or
water heaters.
v) Obstructions in or unconventional vent pipe designs which can amplify
the above situations.
vi) Poorly designed or maintained chimneys and/or vents.
2) Extended operation of unvented fuel burning devices (range, oven, fireplace, etc.).
3) Temperature inversions which can trap exhaust gases near the ground.
4) Car idling in an open or closed attached garage, or near a home.
If “service” (trouble) signal activates (chirps twice every minute, red LED blinks
for 5 seconds at same time), see Section 12 for service and return instructions.
9. LIMITATIONS OF CARBON MONOXIDE ALARMS
! WARNING!
This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of family living units. It
is not designed to measure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) commercial or industrial standards. Individuals with
medical problems may consider using warning devices which provide audible
and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm.
Carbon monoxide alarms respond to the presence of CO. They do not detect
smoke. If the alarm does activate, follow instructions in Section 8 WHAT TO DO WHEN
THE ALARM SOUNDS.
- 10 -
Carbon monoxide alarms are devices that can provide an early warning of the
presence of CO gas at a reasonable cost. However, alarms have sensing limitations
and may not always sound a warning in the presence of CO. The alarm will not operate
if the battery power is low or dead, or if the battery is missing. CO alarms must be
tested regularly to ensure that they are receiving power and operating properly. Carbon
monoxide alarms cannot sense CO that does not reach the alarm, and therefore CO
alarms may not detect CO which is in another area of the home. Furthermore, if the
alarm is located on a different level of the home, or on the other side of a closed door, it
may not waken a sound sleeper. The use of drugs and alcohol may impair ones ability
to hear the alarm. If you have a multi-level home, install CO alarms on each level of the
home. If the alarm is installed in a hallway and the bedroom doors are kept closed at
night, install a CO alarm within each bedroom.
Although CO alarms can help save lives by providing an early warning to the
presence of carbon monoxide, they are not a substitute for an insurance policy.
Homeowners and renters should have adequate insurance to protect their lives and
property.
10. GOOD SAFETY HABITS
DEVELOP AND PRACTICE A PLAN OF ESCAPE:
Make a floor plan indicating all doors and windows and at least two escape routes
from each room. Second story windows may need a rope or chain ladder.
Have a family meeting to discuss your escape plan, and show everyone what to do
in case an alarm sounds.
Determine a place outside your home where you can all meet if an alarm sounds.
Familiarize everyone with the sound of the alarm and train them to leave the home
when they hear it.
Practice a CO fire drill at least once every six months. Practice allows you to test
your plan before an emergency. You may not be able to reach your children. It is
important that they know what to do.
Discuss the symptoms related to CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING with all
members of the household. (See Section 1 WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF CARBON
MONOXIDE POISONING?)
