Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.

These will display errors after 5 years of use. There is an internal timer. They want you to replace them because they are no longer reliable after this time period. If you have smoke detectors in your house, you should also replace them every 5 years regardless of whether they self-test okay.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
