If you bought a Kiddie Duel sensor smoke alarm in the last couple of years you need to check to see if it one that they just recalled. Models PI2010 and PI9010 are being recalled due to a yellow cap left on during production. This covers one of the sensors and compromises the smoke alarms ability to detect smoke. The model number and date code are printed on the back of the alarm.
|PI9010 (DC/battery powered)||2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13|
|PI2010 (AC/hardwired)||2016 Sep. 10 through 2017 Oct. 13|
Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap. Consumers should not attempt to take apart the alarm, open the casing, or otherwise remove the yellow cap themselves. If a yellow cap is present, the consumer should immediately contact Kidde to receive instructions and request a free replacement smoke alarm. They should remove and discard the recalled smoke alarm only after they receive and install the replacement alarm. If no yellow cap is present, consumers should reinstall the smoke alarm and no further action is needed.
