CO detector can be mounted anywhere because the gas disperses, however, I would be likely to mount a CO detector high because the CO is more likely to be coming from hot than cold and would therefore rise.


Maybe this is the problem with mine going off every time I even boil water in my Boler.
The CO from gas burner rises and set the thing off even with all windows open and yes I have a vent with window right over stove but enough CO must get around it and...
BEEEP, BEEEP. BEEEP.
I just take it off the wall and place it outsidenow, knowing it will go off before I cook inside which is seldom, then place it back on wall.

Gerry, my Smoke/CO detector goes off when I cook, but warns me of "Fire! Fire!" (It has a voice warning telling you which the problem is.) I find it goes off anytime I cook unless I open the fantastic fan vent over the table (fan off, most of the time) and the window over the stove. Occasionally I'll turn the fan on as well.

If your CO detector goes off -- not your smoke detector -- you might look at the color of your stove-top flames. When there is no pot on top of them they should be all blue or white, no yellow, amber, orange, or red color at all. If you see these non-blue colors, you are creating CO gas and need to clean and/or adjust the air intakes on your burners.
