26 rr CO alarm going off for no known reason

I do not have propane on, I'm not living in it. Just plugged in to land power and it started going off. Any suggestions how to fix. ??

I have found them to have a limited shelf life. How old is yours?

It's a 2016, just plugged in to get batteries recharged. Than it went off.

Short of unplugging and pulling battery off, is there another way to turn off ??

I took the two screws out, pulled it out of the wall and cut the wire. After finding the reason it was going off I re-spliced the wires. Not the right way but it worked. OBTW the DW left a bottle of swifter cleaner next to the trash that was next to the sensor. Vapors, wow.

Ok thanks, I do know about vapors and other products that can set off. So I should cut wires ? Is there a fuse that can be pulled ??

So I pulled the alarm from the bracket, unscrewed the mounting plate, pulled wires out and found 2 wire nuts to alarm, undid one. No more alarm noise. Will now have to get a new one. Thanks for your help.

Usually goes off because the battery is low, as it's probably hard-wired.

On my Georgetown a drawer is behind the alarm and there is a fuse back there. You can pull the fuse. FYI, pulling the fuse will shut off propane. My alarm was do to fumes from battery which is directly below alarm. There was a bad cell and would overcharge. Good Luck!

Safe T Alert senser

Mine chirped every 30 seconds with a solid green light when I let the battery get a 'little' low. According to the leaflet that came with it, that is by design. Once I plugged in to shore power and the battery charged up 'enough' the chirping stopped completely by itself.
