Quick Set Up Guide
We urge you to read this entire manual
in the sequence it is presented.
Listed below are six easy steps for setting up your Bryant CO alarm.
Please read this entire guide for complete information.
Setting up your alarm for first time operation:
Step 1
Determine the best location for your CO alarm(s). Usually
this is in or near bedrooms. The alarm should be located where it can
wake you if it alarms at night. Refer to page 8 for installation location
information.
Step 2
Your CO alarm is equipped to be mounted as a corded unit, a direct
plug unit or a table top unit. In the “as shipped” configuration, the unit
can be plugged directly into a wall socket. (If your outlets are mounted horizontally, please refer to page 11, “to rotate adapter”). If the
transformer/adapter is taken out of the unit, the alarm can be mounted on the wall at eye level, while the transformer is plugged into a
wall socket. The unit can also be set on a table if the support at the
bottom of the unit is pulled out (see “rear view” illustration on page
10). Refer to pages 10-12 for further information on installing your
alarm.
Step 3
A Bryant rechargeable battery pack is provided for backup in the
event of a power outage. To install the battery pack, open the back
door and align the connector with the slot in the battery. Insure the
orientation of the two alignment ribs align with the slots in the battery
case.
Press the connector in until it is fully seated. Depending on the
charge state of the battery pack (the battery packs can have different
amounts of energy stored in them due to storage time), you may hear
the alarm sound briefly to indicate the alarm is receiving power.
Place battery pack into battery compartment and replace back door
(refer to page 13).
Note: Battery backup will be limited until the battery has fully
charged. It may take up to 24 hours for the battery back up to fully
charge.
Step 4
Plug the alarm into a standard, unswitched 120 volt AC electric outlet
in one of the configurations listed in step 2.
1
Quick Set Up Guide
Step 5
If the battery pack has a full charge when first powered up, you will
see three eights in the digital display indicating the alarm is warming
up. After approximately 20 seconds, the first reading will be displayed. The number on the display should be “0”. If the battery pack
is partially charged,“Lb”(Low battery) will flash every second alternating with a “0” until the battery is charged. If this occurs, see page 13
for complete information.
Step 6
Make sure the red dot in the digital display is blinking. Test the unit’s
operation by pressing and releasing the Test/ Reset button. Within
15 seconds you will hear 4 quick “chirps” - followed by 5 seconds of
silence - followed by 4 quick “chirps”.
While testing the alarm, have someone else check that the alarm
can be heard easily from the sleeping areas. For complete testing
information, refer to page 16.
Caution: Continuous exposure to the loud 85 decibel alarm at close
range over an extended period of time may cause hearing loss.
Your Bryant CO alarm is now monitoring for the presence of carbon
monoxide.

Introduction
This Bryant carbon monoxide (CO) alarm is an important part of your
family’s home safety plan. As a new owner of a CO alarm, there are
some basic facts you should know for your protection and convenience.
Many people think that CO alarms operate like smoke alarms. Like
smoke alarms, CO alarms monitor the air in your home and sound a loud
alarm to warn you of trouble.
The way you respond to a CO alarm is quite different than a smoke
alarm. That’s because a house fire and a carbon monoxide problem are
two distinctly different situations. If your smoke alarm were to alarm, you
would quickly be able to judge the level of danger you were in with your
senses. You can see and smell the smoke, feel the heat, see, and possibly hear the fire burning. You can also readily see if your smoke alarm
is alarming in a non-emergency situation, for example someone smoked
up the kitchen with some burnt toast. Because your sense of sight, smell,
hearing and touch give you information, you can almost instantly judge
what action to take if you hear your smoke alarm.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is invisible, odorless, tasteless, nonirritating, poisonous gas that is completely undetectable to your senses. It is created
when any fuel is burned – gasoline, propane, natural gas, oil, wood, coal,
and even tobacco. When oxygen is limited during combustion, more CO is
produced. Serious problems can develop when combustion by-products
are not properly vented outside the house. That’s why it’s so important to
your safety that you have a carbon monoxide alarm.
Please take the time to completely read this guide to familiarize yourself
with the facts about carbon monoxide, how your new unit works, and
what to do if it alarms. Find a handy place to keep this manual so that it
will be readily available when you have a question.
Thank you for making Bryant a part of your complete home safety program. With proper installation and use, your new Bryant CO alarm will
provide you with years of dependable service.

Features
Digital Display
The continuous digital display shows you the level of carbon monoxide (if any) the
unit is sensing. The unit updates the digital display every 15 seconds .
Note: If the unit does not sense any CO, the reading is zero (0). In most homes,
the unit reads “0” all the time. Areading of “0” is expected under normal conditions.
The blinking dot after the number shows the unit is operating.
Test/Reset Button
The Test/Reset button has three functions:
1. Press this button to test the unit weekly (see page 16 for further
details).
2. Press this button to silence the alarm. This will reset the unit and it
will then start monitoring for CO. If the CO concentration is above 70
ppm the alarm will again sound within 6 minutes.
3. Press the Test/Reset button to reset peak level memory. (See page
19).
Peak Level Button
By pressing this button, you can see the peak CO level recorded by
the alarm since it was last cleared or unplugged. This Bryant feature
allows you (or a heating contractor or a fireman) to see exactly how
serious the CO problem you have so you can react accordingly.
Sensor
The sensor is a highly sensitive, electrochemical sensor that is COspecific to help avoid false alarms.
Sounder Alarm
This is the loud 85 decibel pulsing alarm that will sound to alert you to
a potential problem. An alarm condition is 4 quick “chirps” – followed
by 5 seconds of silence – followed by 4 quick “chirps”. This pattern
repeats until the alarm is silenced or a high level of CO is no longer
present.
Caution: Continuous exposure to this sound level at close range
over an extended period of time may cause hearing loss. We recommend you cover the sounder with your finger or thumb while testing
the alarm.
Keyholes
When the alarm is mounted to the wall, the keyholes slide onto the
screws mounted in the wall.

Features
What Carbon Monoxide Alarms Can and Cannot Do
CO alarms are designed to sense unacceptable levels of CO from
malfunctioning furnaces, appliances, gas engines or other sources.
This Carbon Monoxide alarm is not a substitute for installing and
maintaining an operational smoke alarm.
CO alarms provide early warning of the presence of carbon monoxide, usually before a healthy adult would experience symptoms.
This early warning is possible, however, only if your Bryant CO
alarm is located, installed and maintained as described in this
user’s guide.
This CO alarm is designed to act as a monitor, it is not designed
for use as a short-term testing device to perform a quick check for
the presence of CO.
CO alarms have limitations. Like any other electronic device, CO
alarms are not fool-proof.
CO alarms have a limited operational life. You must test your CO
alarm weekly, because it could fail to operate at any time. If your
CO alarm fails to test properly, or if its self-diagnostic test reveals a
malfunction, immediately have the unit replaced. See back page for
warranty information. This CO alarm also has an "operational end
of life" feature which will indicate when to replace the alarm. See
page 25 for details of this feature.
CO alarms can only sense CO that reaches the unit’s sensor.
Carbon monoxide may be present in other areas without reaching
the alarm. The rate at which CO reaches the unit may be affected
by doors or other obstructions. In addition, fresh air from a vent or
open window or any other source may prevent CO from reaching
the sensor. Please observe cautions on page 8 “Where to install
your alarm.”
CO could be present on one level of the home and not reach a CO
alarm installed on a different level. For example, CO in the basement may not reach an alarm on the second level, near the bedrooms. For this reason, we recommend you provide complete coverage by placing a CO alarm on every level of the home.
CO alarms are not smoke alarms. CO alarms do not sense smoke or
fire. For early warning of fire you must install smoke alarms, even
though carbon monoxide can be generated by a fire.
CO alarms should not be used to detect the presence of natural
gas (methane), propane, butane, or other combustible fuels.
CO alarms are not a substitute for property, disability, life or other
insurance of any kind. Appropriate insurance coverage is your
responsibility. Consult your insurance agent.

Installation
Where to Install Your CO Alarm
Your Bryant CO alarm should be mounted in or near bedrooms and living
areas. It is recommended that you install a Bryant CO alarm on each level
of a multi-level home. You may use the number and location of smoke
alarms installed in your home according to current building code requirements as a guide to the location of your Bryant CO alarm(s).
WHEN CHOOSING YOUR INSTALLATION LOCATIONS, MAKE SURE YOU CAN
HEAR THE ALARM FROM ALL SLEEPING AREAS. IF YOU INSTALL ONLY ONE
CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM IN YOUR HOME, INSTALL THE ALARM NEAR BEDROOMS, NOT IN THE BASEMENT OR FURNACE ROOM.
Recommended Locations

Two labels have been provided with important information on what to do
in case of an alarm. Add the phone number of your emergency service
provider in the space provided. Place one label next to the alarm after it
is mounted, and one label near a fresh air source such as a door or window.
CAUTION: This alarm will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide at the sensor. Carbon monoxide may be present in other areas.
IMPORTANT: Improper location can affect the sensitive electronic components in this alarm. Please see the next section describing where NOT
to install this alarm.

Installation
Where Not to Install Your CO Alarm
To avoid causing damage to the unit, to provide optimum protection, and to prevent
unnecessary alarms, follow the directions below :
It is recommended that you do not install this CO alarm in garages, kitchens or
furnace rooms. Installation in these areas could lead to nuisance alarms, may
expose the sensor to substances that could damage or contaminate it, or the
alarm may not be heard by persons in other areas of the home, especially if they
are sleeping.
In the garage, vehicle exhaust can contain some carbon monoxide. These levels
are higher when the engine is first started. Within hours of starting a vehicle and
backing it out of the garage, the levels present over time can activate the alarm
and become a nuisance.
In the kitchen and furnace room, some gas appliances can emit a short burst of
carbon monoxide upon start-up. This is normal. If your CO alarm is mounted too
close to these appliances, it may alarm often and become a nuisance.
If you must install a Bryant CO alarm near a cooking or heating appliance, install
AT LEAST 5 feet away from appliance.
Do not install in excessively dusty, dirty or greasy areas such as kitchens, garages
and furnace rooms. Dust, grease or household chemicals can contaminate or
coat the alarm’s sensor, causing the alarm not to operate properly.
Do not obstruct the vents located at the top and bottom of the alarm. Place the
alarm where drapes, furniture or other objects do not block the flow of air to the
vents.
Do not install in dead air space, such as peaks of vaulted ceilings or gabled roofs,
where carbon monoxide may not reach the sensor in time to provide early warning.
Do not install in turbulent air from ceiling fans. Do not install near doors and windows that open to the outside, near fresh air vents, or anywhere that is drafty.
Rapid air circulation from fans or fresh air from outside may cause the sensor to
display an inaccurate reading in the presence of CO.
Do not install this alarm in a switch- or dimmer-controlled outlet.
Do not install in areas where the temperature is colder than 40˚F (4.4˚C) or hotter than 100˚F (37.8˚C). These areas include unconditioned crawl spaces, attics,
porches and garages. Extreme temperatures will affect the sensitivity of the alarm.
Do not install CO alarm near deep cell large batteries. Large batteries have emissions that can cause the alarm to perform at less than optimum performance.
9
Installation
Avoid the following:
• Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel burning
appliances caused by outdoor ambient conditions, such as:
1) Wind direction and/or velocity, including high gusts
of wind. Heavy air in the vent pipes (cold/humid air with
extended periods between cycles).
2) Negative pressure differential resulting from the use of exhaust fans.
3) Simultaneous operation of several fuel burning appliances competing for
limited internal air.
4) Vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces or
water heaters.
5) Obstructions in or unconventional vent pipe designs which can amplify
the above situations.
• Extended operation of unvented fuel burning devices (range, oven, fireplace, etc.).
• Temperature inversions which can trap exhaust gasses near the ground.
• Car idling in an open or closed attached garage, or near a home.
How to Install Your Alarm
Your Bryant CO alarm with its removable adapter allows you to install the
alarm as a wall mounted unit, a direct plug unit, or as a table top unit.

take up to 24 hours to FULLY charge the
battery.
During the first 10-hour initial charge period or, until the battery has charged,
"Lb" will be displayed along with the CO level (usually "0") and without an
audible "chirp". When the initial charge is complete, the "Lb" will disappear.
If however, after 10 hours the battery is not charging properly, "Lb" may continue to flash AND there will be an audible "chirp" once every 15 seconds
indicating the battery is not charging. If this occurs, make sure the connection between the battery and the alarm is correctly oriented and fully seated.
If not, disconnect the battery and reconnect insuring the alignment ribs
match the slots in the battery. If it is properly connected and fully seated and
"Lb" is still displayed along with an audible "chirp", contact customer service.
13
Battery Backup Operation
Battery Backup Operation
When the alarm is unplugged or loses AC power and the battery pack is fully
charged, the alarm will automatically switch to battery backup operation and
you will notice the following:
• For the first five minutes of operation on battery, the alarm
will operate as if on AC power.
• However, after five minutes of operation, to conserve battery
capacity, the display will flash the CO level (usually "0") once
every 60 seconds.
Caution: If the unit detects CO and enters an alarm state while in battery back-up condition, the CO level will be displayed and the audible
alarm pattern of four quick beeps will sound once every 60 seconds.
Battery Back-up Operation in Low Battery "Lb" Condition:
When the battery pack is not fully charged, the unit will begin displaying "Lb"
and "chirp" once every 15 seconds. This will last approximately 7 hours to
warn you the battery is losing capacity. Apply AC power to charge battery as
soon as possible.
NOTE: While in the low battery "Lb" warning mode, the unit is sensing
for and will alarm if CO is detected.
Battery Back-up Operation in Trouble Alarm Condition:
When the battery pack capacity has been discharged to a state where it can
no longer provide enough power to detect CO and operate the alarm, it will
enter a trouble alarm condition. The display will go blank and the alarm will
give an audible trouble "chirp" once every 60 seconds. This will continue for
approximately 7 hours after which time the alarm will no longer "chirp" to warn
of a trouble condition.
WARNING:THE UNIT WILL NOT DETECT CO WHILE IN THE TROUBLE ALARM CONDITION, BLANK DISPLAY, AND ONE AUDIBLE TROUBLE "CHIRP" EVERY 60 SECONDS. APPLY AC POWER TO CHARGE
THE BATTERY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
When AC power is restored, the alarm will automatically switch back to normal operating mode and begin charging the battery pack to full capacity. After
continued operation on battery backup, "Lb" may flash while the battery is
recharging and will continue until fully charged.
Constant exposures to high or low humidity may reduce
battery life.
WARNING:
Replace the battery pack only with a Bryant rechargeable battery pack. Replacement battery packs can be purchased from
Bryant customer service. See page 28 for additional precautions regarding the rechargeable battery pack.
14
Operation
Normal Operating Characteristics
When you first power up the unit, the alarm will sound briefly to let you
know the unit is receiving power and that the alarm circuit is functioning.
You will see three eights on the digital display, indicating the alarm is in the
start-up mode. The three eights will remain for approximately 20 seconds.
You will see a blinking red dot to the lower right of the digital display. The
blinking dot shows that the alarm is operating.
Blinking Dot
Within 20 seconds, your CO alarm will start monitoring for CO. The number indicates a measurement of carbon monoxide in parts per million
(ppm). Note: The number will probably be zero (0). This is a normal condition for most households and shows that no measurable amount of CO
has been detected.
The alarm has begun monitoring the air for carbon monoxide and will continue to do so as long as it receives power.
15
Operation
Testing the Electronics
You should test the alarm once a week, following the directions listed
below. If at any time you test the alarm and it does not perform as
described below, have it replaced immediately. See “How to know if your
alarm is malfunctioning” on page 17 for a description of the characteristics of a malfunctioning alarm and what you should do if a malfunction
occurs.
Observe the alarm weekly to make sure the red dot is blinking, indicating normal operation.
If the dot is not blinking, unplug the alarm, then plug it in
again. This will clear the alarm for restart. If the dot does
Blinking Dot
not resume blinking, your alarm may be malfunctioning.
To test the alarm, press the Test/Reset button. If the unit is operating
properly, you should notice the following:
• The display shows three eights
, and then shows a number (usually around 200). You will then hear 4 quick beeps
– followed by 5 seconds of silence – followed by 4 quick beeps.
The unit will then show the three eights for several seconds. It
will then return to monitoring for carbon monoxide.
Familiarize yourself and household members with the alarm pattern
described above. In the event of a CO incident, this pattern will continue
to repeat as long as CO is present.
NOTE: Pressing the Test/Reset button tests the functions of the alarm’s
internal components, circuitry and micro-computer. YOU DO NOT NEED
TO PRESS THE TEST BUTTON TO TAKE A CO READING. CO readings are automatically shown on the alarm’s digital display. If the alarm
shows zero (0), then no measurable amount of CO has been sensed by
the alarm within the past 15 seconds.
16
Operation
How to Know If Your Alarm is Malfunctioning
Your alarm performs an internal self-diagnosis every 15 seconds to make
sure that it is functioning properly. The alarm is designed to alert you in the
unusual event of a malfunction.
If the alarm malfunctions.
In the rare event that your alarm malfunctions, it will alert you with one of
these signal groups (depending upon the type of malfunction that occurs):
Malfunction Signal Group 1 - Component Failure
– An intermittent “chirping” alarm will sound every 20 seconds., and
– An “Err” message will appear on the digital display
OR,
Malfunction Signal Group 2 - Microprocessor Failure
– The alarm will sound continuously, and
– The digital display will be blank, and
– The alarm cannot be shut off by pushing the “Test/Reset” button
Unplug the alarm immediately and return for warranty exchange (see
“Warranty” on back page).
What to do if you’re not sure...
PLEASE familiarize yourself with the malfunction alert, and do not confuse these signals with an alarm. After reading the information above, if you are still unsure whether
your alarm is operating properly, call the Kidde toll-free consumer hotline at 1-800-8806788 to do a quick diagnostic check of the alarm over the phone. The customer service representative will be able to assist you and answer your questions.
Never ignore a CO alarm. Atrue alarm is an indication of potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. CO alarms are designed to alert you to the presence of
carbon monoxide before an emergency, before most people would experience
symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, allowing time to resolve the problem
calmly.
17
Operation
How to Care for Your Alarm
To keep your alarm in good working order, you must follow these simple
steps:
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
• Test the alarm once a week by pressing the Test/Reset button (see

alarm. Warn children of the dangers of CO poisoning.
WHAT YOU SHOULD NOT DO:
• Never use detergents or solvents to clean the alarm. Chemicals can permanently damage or temporarily contaminate the sensor.
• Avoid spraying air fresheners, hair spray, paint or other aerosols near the
alarm.
• Do not paint the alarm. Paint will seal the vents and interfere with proper
sensor operation.
• Do not mount the alarm directly above or near a diaper pail, as high
amounts of methane gas can cause temporary readings on the digital display.
Note: If you will be staining or stripping wood floors or furniture, painting,
wall-papering, or using aerosols or adhesives for a do-it-yourself project or
hobby, before you begin, Remove the alarm to a remote location to
prevent possible damage to or contamination of the sensor. You may
wish to unplug the alarm and store it in a plastic bag during the project.
The following is a list of substances that at high levels can affect the sensor and cause temporary readings on the digital display that are not carbon
monoxide readings:
Methane, propane, iso-butane, ethylene, ethanol, alcohol, isopropanol, benzene, toluene, ethyl acetate, hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide, and sulfur dioxides.
Also most aerosol spray, alcohol based products, paint, thinner, solvent, adhesives, hair spray, aftershave, perfume, auto exhaust (cold
start) and some cleaning agents.

Operation
Peak Level Memory
The peak level feature is helpful in identifying CO occurrences below 30 PPM.
Although the unit will not automatically display levels below 30 PPM, it will
detect and store these readings in memory. By pressing the peak level button, concentration levels as low as 11 and up to 999 PPM will be displayed.
Concentrations of CO between 0 and 30 PPM can often occur in normal,
everyday conditions. Concentrations of CO below 30 PPM may be an indication of a transient condition that may appear today and never reappear.
Just a few examples of conditions and/or sources that may cause readings
are heavy automobile traffic, a starting a vehicle in an attached garage, an
appliance that emits CO when starting up, a fire in a fireplace or charcoal in
a nearby barbecue. A temperature inversion can trap CO generated by traffic and other fuel burning appliances causing readings of CO.
Normally, the digital display will read “0” and under certain conditions you may
notice levels of 30 or more for short periods of time, by using the Peak level
memory feature on the Bryant CO alarm you can view concentrations of CO
between 11 and 30 PPM. Use the concentrations shown in memory as a tool
in identifying the source of the CO. It may be helpful to purchase additional
Bryant CO Alarms to place in different locations throughout your house to isolate the CO source. Monitor the CO concentrations shown in the peak level
memory to see if readings occur in certain areas at certain times of the day,
or near a particular appliance.
Once the source is located, correcting the problem may be as easy as opening a window, venting an appliance, backing a running car out of the garage
a safe distance from living quarters and closing the garage door. It could be
possible that a weather condition caused the reading and the condition may
or may not happen again.
Some CO conditions may start out as low level leaks but could develop into
CO concentrations that could become harmful. If this happens, the CO alarm
will detect the dangerous level and alarm, notifying you and others of the conditions. DO NOT ignore high concentration readings above 30 PPM or a CO
alarming device that is in alarm.
CO concentrations displayed below 30 PPM in "Peak Level" memory are for
reference only and the accuracy of the concentration shown may not be as
accurate as noted on page 24.
To Reset the Peak Level Memory…
Step 1. Press the peak level button.
Step 2. With the peak level button still pressed, press the test/reset button for two seconds and release.
The number on the display will turn to “0”. The memory has now been
cleared and the alarm will begin monitoring for CO within a few minutes.

What You Can Do...
• Buy only appliances approved by a nationally recognized testing laboratory.
• Choose fuel-burning appliances that can be vented to the outdoors, whenever
possible.
• Make sure appliances are installed according to manufacturer’s instructions
and local building codes. Most appliances should be installed by professionals
and should be inspected by the proper authority after installation
• Have the heating system, vents, chimney and flue inspected and cleaned by a
qualified technician every year.
• Follow manufacturer’s directions for safe operation of all fuel-burning appliances.
• Examine vents and chimneys regularly for improper connections, visible rust
or stains.
• Open a window when a fireplace or wood-burning stove is in use, and provide
adequate outdoor air for furnace and water heater.
• Notice problems that could indicate improper appliance operation:
– Decreasing hot water supply
– Furnace unable to heat house or runs constantly
– Sooting, especially on appliances
– Unfamiliar or burning odor
– Yellow or orange flame
• Be aware of the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning:
– headaches, dizziness, weakness, sleepiness, nausea, vomiting, confusion
and disorientation.
• Recognize that CO poisoning may be the cause when family members suffer
from flu-like symptoms that don’t disappear but improve when they leave
home for extended periods of time.
What You Should Not Do...
• Never burn charcoal inside a home, garage, cabin, RV or camper.
• Never install, service, or convert fuel-burning appliances from one type to another
without proper knowledge, skills and tools.
• Never use a gas range, oven, or clothes dryer for heating.
• Never operate unvented gas-burning appliances, such as kerosene or natural
gas space heaters, in a closed room.
• Never operate gasoline-powered engines (like vehicles, motorcycles, lawn mowers, yard equipment or power tools) in confined areas such as a garage or basement, even if an outside door or window is open.
• Never ignore a safety device when it shuts off an appliance.
• Never ignore a CO alarm.

What To Do When the Alarm Sounds
Determine if anyone in the household is experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning. Many cases of reported CO poisoning indicate that while victims are aware
they are not well, they become so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the building or calling for assistance. Also young children
and household pets may be the first affected. The following symptoms are
related to CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING and should be discussed with
ALL members of the household:
Become familiar with these common symptoms from CO poisoning.
Common Mild Exposure Symptoms:
Headaches, running nose, sore eyes, often described as
“flu” like symptoms.
Common Medium Exposure Symptoms:
Dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting
Common Extreme Exposure Symptoms:
Unconsciousness, brain damage, death.
If you experience even mild symptoms of CO
poisoning, consult your doctor immediately!

When the CO alarm senses a dangerous level of CO, the unit will emit a loud
alarm pattern. The alarm pattern is 4 short “chirps” – followed by 5 seconds of
silence – followed by 4 short “chirps”. (Note: When the unit is disconnected
from the 120V power supply and is on battery backup, the alarm pattern will
continue for the first 5 minutes after detecting CO and then the cycle will repeat
every one minute). Know how to respond to a CO emergency. Periodically
review this user’s guide and discuss with all members of your family.
If alarm signal sounds 4 quick “chirps”, 5 seconds off:
1) Immediately move to fresh air - outdoors or by an open
door or window. Check that all persons are accounted
for. Do not re-enter the premises or move away from the
open door or window until emergency services responders have arrived, the premises have been aired out,
and your alarm remains in its normal operating condition.
2) Call your emergency services.

Specifications
How the Unit Determines When to Alarm
Your Bryant CO alarm uses advanced technology to monitor
the environment in your home and warn you of unacceptable levels of carbon monoxide. An internal microcomputer works
together with the sensor inside the alarm to determine the levels of carbon monoxide in the air and to calculate the rate that
CO would be absorbed into the human body. The microcomputer is calibrated to trigger the unit’s alarm before most people
would experience any symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. Because carbon monoxide is a cumulative poison, longterm exposures to low levels can cause symptoms, as well as
short-term exposures to high levels. Your unit has a time
weighted alarm, so the higher the level of carbon monoxide
present, the sooner the alarm will be triggered.
WARNING: This device is designed to protect individuals from
acute effects of carbon monoxide exposure. It will not fully
safeguard individuals with specific medical conditions. If in
doubt, consult a medical practitioner. Individuals with medical
problems may consider using warning devices which provide
audible and visual signals for carbon monoxide concentrations
under 30 ppm.
Replacement of Alarm
Eight years after initial power-up, this unit will “chirp” every 30
seconds to indicate that it is time to replace the alarm. A label
has been provided that has “Replace by” printed on it. Write
the replace by date on the label and affix it to the front of the
alarm so that it is visible after mounting. The date written on
the label should be after eight (8) years of cumulative power.
REPLACE IMMEDIATELY! UNIT WILL NOT DETECT CO IN THIS CONDITION.
25
Display Readings
Your new Bryant carbon monoxide alarm is a sophisticated electronic
device – yet very simple to understand. Basically, the unit will display
a “0” if it senses 30 PPM of CO or less and if you have a good backup
battery pack installed.
If it senses carbon monoxide, it will display a reading so you can see
if you have a non-threatening or emergency situation.
However, if the backup battery pack is low or missing, or if the unit
malfunctions, it will display other readings (and alarm differently) to
alert you that something is wrong with the alarm.
Please familiarize yourself and other family members to the difference
between a CO reading and a reading signifying a problem with the
alarm itself.

temperatures. Otherwise, electrolyte leakage, overheating and/or
smoke emission can occur. Also, its guaranteed performance will be lost and/or its service life will be shortened.
• Do not subject the battery to static electricity. Otherwise, the
built-in safety/protection circuits can be damaged by static voltages, possibly leading to leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not immerse the battery in liquids such as fresh or salt
water, beverages (fruit juices and coffee, etc.).
• If the battery leaks, and the electrolyte gets into the eyes, the
skin or other part of the body, rinse the body part with clean
running water and immediately seek medical attention.
• Li-Ion batteries may be disposed of in normal household
waste. Contact local landfill for disposal or recycling practices
in your area.
Battery Storage (When Detached From the Alarm)
• Store the battery in a location where children cannot reach it.
Store the battery in a cool and dry storage area. Storing the battery in temperatures above 40°C will lead to permanent battery damage. If a refrigerator is used for storage, the battery
should be placed in a plastic bag for protection against condensation.
• The proper operating/recharging temperature range is from 0 to
40°C. An operating/recharging condition outside this range
can lead to battery damage, overheating or other problems.
