How to test a FireAngel CO-9D Carbon Monoxide Detector

Alarm Test
Test the sounder, power pack and circuitry by pressing and releasing the Test/Silence button to confirm that the alarm is operating properly. The alarm should sound as soon as the Test button is pressed, and the Alarm LED will illuminate red indicating that the sounder is working and the power pack is providing power to the unit. This test should be performed on a weekly basis. Perform the Sensor Test annually
