From the manufacturer
Place at least 10 feet from kitchen/stove, and on the ceiling or high on a wall, no more than 10 inches from top.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide alarms can be placed anywhere, not just the ceiling or high on a wall. They should be replaced every 5 to 7 years.
Keep in the kitchen and garage, but make sure to have the right grade for the type of fire that might occur.
Have at least one if your home has more than one story. Each room needs 2 escape routes; in most bedrooms it's the window, so have a ladder nearby.

UPDATE; Finally received response from First Alert factory in TX. Basically can't/won't honor warranty on products sold by Amazon. My response to First Alert was; in my experience never had a 'manufacturer' not honor valid warranty. That was today Fri 11/8. If I don't get help from F A staff I'm going to their CEO and Board of Directors. It's not the lousy $21 purchase price it's the principle of the thing.
Even if F A solves the problem I'll probably go back to buying Kidde replacements for 20 locations in my business.
UPDATE: The party I was referred to claims to be a product distributor as is Amazon, avoiding assistance except a staffer gave me and 800 number to call. I'll check it out but now have no confidence in suppliers or First Alert. Kidde gets my business from now on.
Flash forward about two weeks, and it's time to replace the taillights on his Subaru, because I'd borrowed his in order to get an inspection, since they weren't cracked. When I go to install them on his car, a wasps nest had been built inside the quarter panel and my friend determined that the only way to deal with this was to burn it with brake parts cleaner and fire - which was quite successful at destroying the wasps nest.
He immediately, after stamping out the fire (inside the quarter panel), walked away and went inside. I started to follow, but turned around before walking around the corner decided to look back at the car, to see a growing flame coming from behind the taillight that I'd just put there - which was starting to melt away.
I looked around the car for the extinguisher - ran inside to grab anything and found his car one sitting inside by the door, so ran back out and pretty easily put out what has turned into a five foot tall flame coming from the tailgate.
I gotta say that if I hadn't had this, there's a solid chance that his car would have burnt to the ground, and possibly his house too. It's a hugely helpful thing, and I will continue to keep one in stock probably for the rest of my life.
