These units are AC/DC powered and capable of hardwired interconnect. They have a Kidde logo on the face of the unit. The model number is on the label on the back of the unit.
Identified Hazard: If a power outage occurs at the same second that a unit is performing a sensor health check, the unit may go into a “latched” mode, causing it not to alert to the presence of smoke. It will sound if it receives a signal from an alarm in the same interconnected system. Once power is restored, a latched unit will sound an alert, regardless of the presence of fire and/or carbon monoxide (for combination units) until power to the unit is completely removed.
Remedy: Replace Unit. Consumers should not take the alarm out of service until they receive a replacement from Kidde. Kidde Product Support: Kidde toll-free at 1-844-553-9011 between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, except holidays, or visit our website at www.kidde.com. Calls consumers may have of a technical nature that are not related to the recall should be transferred to our toll free number.
