Carbon dioxide alarm

My alarm is beeping plus the light is red which says it needs replacing. I removed it and it is hard wired in. Is there a way to change it? And how? Where to get a replacement. 2012 3852 rl

Are you talking about the Propane detector mounted low in the kitchen area? It is a wired 12V powered unit and they are only good for 5 or so years. Mine went out 4 years ago on my 2012.

The carbon monoxide detector in the bedroom is battery powered as I recall. They also have an end of life date after which they beep continuously.

In either case, here is a link to Amazon where they have a selection of propane and carbon monoxide replacements. I am sure you can find them elsewhere too.

You can get a replacement on amazon. Take the old one off the cabinet and clip the wires with wire cutters. Strip back the insulation and connect with the new alarm with wire nuts. The wires will be "hot" but only 12 volt so just don't let them short together and blow a fuse. They are hot even if you turn off the battery disconnect.

Make sure you are not connected to shore power and remove the negative cable from your battery(s) before working on anything electrical.

When I tried to pull the wires through the opening they disconnected from the wire nuts.
Which wire goes where?
Black to Black and white?
Red to white?

If you are going to do any of your own wiring I highly recommend an inexpensive multimeter. I have one I bought from Walmart years ago that has served me well. It'll show a minus sign before the voltage - XX.XX when leads are tested backwards on DC.

That's what I did.
Everything is hooked up and running fine.

Thanks
