Because of their sensitive nature, all carbon monoxide (CO) detector sensors require replacement after a period of time to remain accurate. All Guardian Avionics / CO Guardian aviation CO detectors feature a self-test at power on for each flight. If the unit shows a failure of the CO sensor upon power up, you must send the unit to Guardian Avionics for replacement or overhaul. Depending on level of use, storage environment, and flight environment, most CO sensors have a usable life of 5-7 years. Though our units have a required Time Before Overhaul (TBO) of Seven (7) years from point of installation regardless of self-test results, we recommend sending in your unit for replacement / recalibration every 5 years during your annual maintenance inspection to assure safety and accuracy of your unit.
The procedure for recalibration is as follows:

When installed in accordance with this installation manual and the limitations, the installation of our TSO
Approved models 452/454/455/551 and 553 is unlikely to have an appreciable effect on the weight,
balance, structural strength, reliability, operational characteristics, or other characteristics affecting the
airworthiness of the aircraft, and should therefore be eligible for installation as a minor alteration.
Please see the Instructions of continued Airworthiness for each model for limitations (available on downloads page). Most customers
have been able to install these as Minor installation per AC 23.1309-IE and FAR 23.109. You must
seek proper guidance prior to installation from you local FAA FISDO for clarification.
