WARNING: This FireAngel carbon monoxide
detector is not a combustible gas detector, nor a
smoke detector. Please install the proper detectors to detect
combustible gases, or smoke.

This CO detector should not be seen as a substitute for the
proper installation, use and maintenance of fuel-burning
appliances (including appropriate ventilation and exhaust
systems), nor the sweeping of chimneys.
WARNING: Variables relating to your fuel burning
appliances can change at any point eg. the flue or
chimney could suddenly become blocked or damaged,
appliances may stop running correctly or circumstances
in neighbouring properties may change resulting in the
presence of carbon monoxide. For this and other reasons
do not use this carbon monoxide detector on an intermittent
basis, or as a portable detector for trying to trace one source
of the spillage of combustion products from fuelburning
appliances or from chimneys.

HOW TO INSTALL YOUR
DETECTOR
NOTE: This apparatus should be installed by a
competent person who feels able to install it according
to the instructions.
Firstly write the installation date on your detector in the area
provided. We recommend that your detector is installed on
the wall.
To mount on a wall or ceiling:

the wall. Insert the plastic wall plugs. Screw in the screws.
Ensure screws are protruding from the wall by 3mm to allow
detector to slot onto screws.
To place on a shelf:
The base of the detector has been designed to allow it to stand
freely on a shelf.

WARNING: When placing on a shelf, please adhere
to the same positional recommendations as described on
pages 10,11 and 12.

on holiday. You will need to deactivate your detector when
travelling or even when storing e.g. when decorating. Fitting is
the reverse of removal. To deactivate the detector the two ends
of the metal clip must be inserted into the corresponding holes
JOUIFEJTBCMJOHTPDLFUMPDBUFEPOUIFVOEFSTJEFPGUIFEFUFDUPS
(see image). You can ensure that the product is disabled by
pressing the test button - if there is no sound from the sounder
then the clip has been fitted correctly.
The clip must
remain in the
disabling socket
to keep the power
pack deactivated.
NOTE: If the disabling tab is no longer available then
the clip can be replicated by opening out a thin metal
paper clip into a U-shape.

Testing the sensor
NOTE: We suggest the use of an incense stick or
cigarette as the way in which these products burn
produces a readable localised amount of carbon monoxide.
19
Alternative sources of smoke, for example an extinguished
candle or match, will not contain sufficient levels of carbon
monoxide to obtain a response from the detector during this
test. Please note your CO detector will not detect smoke.
CAUTION: Sensor testing should only be performed by
a responsible adult.
This test should only be performed annually. Excessive
testing will cause the life of the power pack to be shortened.
NOTE: Aerosol CO may be used in order to avoid
having to burn cigarettes, incense sticks etc. However we
recommend that incense sticks are used as they are cheap
and readily available.

IMPORTANT: This does NOT mean that the detector

If the product is still within warranty then contact technical
support. If the product is no longer in warranty replace
immediately!
IMPORTANT: The selected power pack was chosen
to provide power beyond the lifetime of the product, in
particular the sensor (under normal operating conditions). The
sensor life is ten years. For this reason, the detector should be
replaced after ten years from the date of installation.

other activities using substances that emit strong fumes.
Remember to remove it from the bag and replace the
detector when these activities are finished.
Failure of any test should be reported to the Technical Support
Team (see page 33 for contact details).
Do not attempt to repair your CO detector. Do not remove
any screws or open the main casing of your detector. Any
attempt to do so may cause malfunction and will invalidate
