    Customer Reviews:

    • Kidde Nighthawk alarm KN-COEG-3
      We have been looking for a home monitor/alarm that could detect carbon monoxide and explosive gases. We wanted it to be portable as well as reasonably priced. We selected the Kidde Nighthawk alarm with battery backup after reading a lot of reviews and recommendations. The instructions were helpful and easy to understand. We were able to test that the unit works and now have it plugged into an outlet near the stairs in our home. It is comforting to know that our family is protected especially at night. I think this product is as necessary as a fire alarm and recommend that everyone consider purchasing a unit for your family's safety.

    • Piece of Junk!!
      Amazon should add a ZERO-star rating. False "gas" alarms have averaged every 4-6 weeks during the year we've owned this detector. Air fresheners, food cooking, and pee diapers have all caused alarms in addition to random alarms without any obvious cause. The gas company confirmed no leaks on multiple occasions. This product is headed to the dump. Don't waste your money!! ...more info

      This was a gift for our college-aged daughter. She lives in a basement apartment, this gives her and us peace of mind. Easy to install and reliable company....more info
    • Kidde Nighthawk Explosive Gas/CO Alarm Saved Me
      -----I was cleaning with 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) when my Kidde Nighthawk 900-0113 explosive gas/carbon monoxide (CO) detector went off. It was built to detect methane--Natural Gas--and propane, but I guess it detects anything explosive, fortunately. There was a lit pilot light in the room; the alcohol vapor did not reach explosive concentrations before the alarm sounded or I would not be typing this. The detector is five years old; I am not sure the CO part still works, but the explosive gas part sure does. I am ordering two more; I will mount one high up and the other low down, as some gasses--like alcohol--are heavier than air. "Isopropyl alcohol *vapour* is heavier than air and is highly flammable.... It should be kept away from heat and open flame. When mixed with air...it can explode...." --Wikipeda Free Encyclopedia. ---Jim...more info
    • Had two of these - both failed
      I have owned two of these devices. I got rid of each of them because of false alarms with the gas detector. I tried unplugging it and waiting, but the gas alarm continued to sound. I tried vacuuming the unit, but still no help. I'm going with a CO-only detector this time. I have used the Nighthawk CO-only detector in the past and was happy with it. I wish that I had not switched to the CO/gas detector....more info
    • False alarms like everyone else: GAS
      This is the worst product in the history of products. Like so many others, I would get false gas alarms for no reason. I called the gas company and they didn't detect any leaks.

      Kidde better do something about this. People are unplugging these darned devices and since they're probably sold by the thousands, it may lead to some fatalities. ...more info
    • explosive Subway sandwich
      After just getting my second false alarm for explosive gas in the last month, I decided to jump online and see if others have been having the same problem. I've been reading the reviews about how different odors are setting these things off, and now I'm chuckling because I think it may have been the smell of my Subway sandwich bread that may have set it off. I agree with a lot of the other posters - I think I will switch to a CO only detector....more info
    • false alarms
      more false alarms... GAS... around 420... really wish I read these reviews before I bought it. Alarm went off while cooking on a gas stove and we couldn't smell any gas. I'm pretty certain that the noise is slightly deafening. ...more info
    • Great Relieable Product
      Product was recommended by a service technician. I was able to find it through Amazon's site at a tremendously reasonable cost along with free shipping. The product certainly provides for a safer environment and is well worth the money spent. ...more info
    • False Alarms -
      Fortunately, Kidde customer service has responded well to our false alarm problem with the GAS side of these devices.

      Now on our third, the other two each lasted about a year before giving us false GAS alarms, this one is up only about 2 months and here we go again!

      This time, I asked Kidde if they would replace the unit with the Carbon Monoxide ONLY product... They were kind enough to do so.

      Thank goodness Kidde stands behind their products with representatives trained to listen and respond to consumer issues.

    • Explosive Gas False Alarms
      This is the 2nd Kidde Carbon Monoxide/Explosive Gas detector I've had. The first one kept having false alarms for explosive gas. Kidde was kind enough to replace it with a new one a couple years ago.

      I am now having false gas alarms again. I am in touch with Kidde about getting a carbon monoxide detector instead. I am hoping things will go smoothly with customer service again this time around. ...more info
    • Cat Urine?
      I cannot vouch for the effectiveness of this item in detecting explosive gasses, however, it does seem quite capable of detecting cat urine. We had mounted ours about three or four feet above a litter box and if our did not cover after peeing in the box, the explosive gas alarm would go off. Simply relocating the detector to another outlet in the room solved that problem but we thought it was interesting nonetheless....more info
    • Just had a false gas alarm
      We just had an explosive gas alarm tonight. I picked up the baby and ran out of the house into the 27 degree night, the fire dept came out and found nothing wrong. I decided to see if there were any reviews on this unit. I wish I had read the reviews before I bought this. I don't want to throw it out just in case it does detect gas one day, hopefully there won't be any more false alarms. I know gas has a smell, but I used to live in an apt. before where there was a gas leak and I didn't know it, so I'm sort of paranoid now. The fire dept. gave us a new battery so we'll see. Why can't anyone make a reliable gas detector?...more info

    • False positives continued....
      As many have already written this unit gives too many false positives on the GAS side. The first time (about 8 years ago)I had the fire department out. No gas detection. I then bought a second identical unit, and placed them side by side to have a "second reading". After a year, the original GAS/CM unit was discarded because of going off all the time, while the second unit showed nothing. I bought a Carbon Monoxide only unit instead. Now my second Nighthawk is going off all the time and there is zero gas smell. I may try replacing the battery, however I'm not optimistic. I'll call Nighthawk, as others have suggested, to see if I can get a replacement CM unit only. ...more info
    • False Alarms Galore!
      My wife and I bought one of these Kidde Nighthawk alarms and it has alerted us a total of FIVE TIMES WITHIN THE PAST THREE MONTHS that there was explosive gas present with a measurement around 215. Not once has there actually been any sort of a danger. We've had nothing but false alarms with this product, and today, after it going off three consecutive times within the past fifteen minutes, it's getting the boot.

      The other reviewers are correct in saying that explosive gas has a distinct smell. The only thing *I* was smelling when this alarm went off was the soap I had just used to wash my hands. Deadly and explosive? I think not!...more info
    • False alarms!
      I would NOT recommend this item. Like others who've written reviews, I had false alarms for explosive gas. I had the gas company come and check and they reported many reported problems with these combo detectors. He recommended just a CO detector. I threw this away and went with their recommendation. What a waste....more info
    • Kindly spoke: Explosive gas "false" alarms may be wine, alcohol, solvents--clear the room, vent the alarm, reinstall
      "No reason to get excited"--

      many of these grievous complaints may be caused by true "flammable" solvents, like the Old Spice complaint from one reviewer (probably alcohol in the toiletry's compound).

      You "fix" the alarm by clearing the room by ventilation and "venting" the alarm by taking the alarm out into the outside air for about 10 minutes.

      The question for the user is whether you want an alarm that sensitive?
      If I had a baby in the house I would say, yes I do.

      Adults, drinking wine or using solvents, maybe you don't. Your own nose will tell you when the solvent fumes are too intense, and as for wine, that's a bouquet issue anyway.

      In any house, however, you need a carbon monoxide (CO) detector. That gas is odorless and it can kill you or at least make you real sick.

      A friend had a CO detector go off, in their basement where their bedroom and their new baby's room were. Fire department came. Cause--the gas water heater "deflector" on top had tipped just a bit, causing a buildup of poisonous gas. That family is a believer now. So am I.

    • Too many scary false alarms
      I had nothing but problems with this unit and eventually threw it away (wish I had read the reviews and called Kiddie to get it replaced). If the power went out, it would alarm. If I used hairspray two rooms away, it would alarm. If I used the stove or something burned on a unit, it would alarm. The final straw was during a power outage at about 2:00 am when it went off and, not knowing what to do, I called 911 and had the fire department come out. There was no explosive gas or CO at all. It was just blaring for no reason. ...more info
    • Flawed Design - Eats Batteries
      Product has potential, but has a serious design flaw that makes it a battery eater. When you lose commercial power, the battery backup takes over as it should. The problem is that when power returns, the unit will continue to run off of the battery until you manually "reset" it. Even worse, there's NO INDICATOR to show you its running off of battery power, so you never know that it needs to be reset. Only when you start getting the "LO BATT" indicator do you realize its been sitting there on battery power for who knows how long. By then, its too late and all you can do is feed it another battery. Finally got tired of wasting batteries so I no longer use the device. Stay away....more info
    • Most stupid thing I've seen in my life
      1. Battery dies in about 1 month even it is always on wall plug. When battery dies, it alarms no matter when. So be aware that you may have to get up at midnight to buy/change battery for it.

      2. It is very sensitive to cosmetics and wines. When my wife applies some certain cosmetics, it always alarms. When we gather together with friends for some alcohol, it alarms too.

      3. It is very insensitive to carbon monoxide. We once had some problem with our gas stove. The smell was so bad that we all evacuated, but this stupid thing was as silent as a rock.

      So buy it if you:

      1. like to get up any time when you are asleep.
      2. never let any one drinks or uses cosmetics to get into your house.
      3. don't mind that it doesn't detect carbon monoxide....more info
