About :

A chirping or beeping sound from a smoke detector indicates that it needs a new battery. It’s really easy to do and can be done in about 2 minutes. To unmount the smoke detector, give it a twist. detector will still be connected by a wire connector. This simply pops off to take the detector down to change the battery. The connector actually covers part of the battery door so it has to be removed before the door can be accessed. There’s a little tab that helps pop out the old 9 volt battery.

When replacing the battery, make sure you get the polarity correct. To insert the new battery, the spring loaded tab needs to be folded down with the battery. This tab may look slightly different on different brands of detectors. But the battery door won’t close if this is still popped up. Once the new battery is in, plug the wire connector back into the smoke detector and twist it back into place. That’s it and you won’t have to worry about your smoke detector beeping or chirping for quite a while.

Changed batteries , old battery still good , but changed it anyway .. no chirp.. for an hr or two.. red light flashes now and then .. so canned air, blew out any dust.. still no difference .. chirps every now and then .. windows wide open.. so no fumes..
Unit is just over a yr old , installed in new house .. going to change it out for new one .. and swap it for one in another location in house ..just to see what comes about ..

Best explanation in about a minute. Detectors vary in size and shape and brands, but the principle is the same for every one of them. Just change the battery.

There’s other reasons for chirping like the unit is too dust.... You should’ve added that into your video

I have followed the directions for changing the battery in a wired smoke detector and have blown canned air to remove dust and bugs. The thing continues to chirp. But wait - even with the battery removed and holding the detector in my hand, the mount still on the ceiling continues to chirp. There are three interconnected detectors; only this one is having a problem. What do I do now?

How stupid is it to build WIRED smoke detectors WiTHOUT rechargeable batteries? They HAVE power to them 24/7...ya know? The ONLY time the battery comes to play is when the power goes out.....DUHHH ....rechargeable batteries! Right? But noooo these in my house are regular old batteries that you have to keep risking life and limb to change every so often ....like in the middle of the night

What if it still chirps after installing the new battery, which is frequently the case? Well, here is what I do:
I take it down and vacuum it. Dust, cob webs, insects, and various debris can get inside and fool detector causing it to chirp. Next, I put the battery in and let detector sit near me for couple of hours (while I watch TV), making sure it does not chirp. Then I reinstall it. In many cases I was able to reuse the same battery since chirping had nothing to do with it.

My fucking smoke detectors won't shut up and they've been consistently chirping for TWO HOURS NOW, It's three beeps and they're loud as shit, everyone in the house is screaming at one another over this damn thing, is it still a battery issue? I looked it up and it said I could've been set off by dust or smth

Purchased to replace a very old Fyrnetics Lifesaver 1255 smoke-only alarm that came with the house. Replacing the mounting bracket and wiring harness was simple for those who are at all handy.>>>ur2.pl/986 Linked flawlessly with an existing model with 9V backup, and sounds both alarms correctly when tested. It is loud and audibly announces the type of alarm, and the easily-accessible backup battery compartment is a great plus.

pretty sure this is my exact smoke detector.. mine is by kidde intermittent chirping .... usually at night .. I have tried changing the battery with new batteries 2 times... I tried vacuuming the vents, I turned off the breaker and have checked the wiring where it is hardwired in... everything seems tight, I pushed down the button to drain any charge remaining, and then put it back up and turned back the breaker... it is still chirping intermittently .. I do not know what to do... the date on the side of the detector says 2026 ... it has been up for about a year and 2 others went in at the same time on the same line .. there is no problem with them.. only this one ... I am ready to take it out altogether .... I tried to find a number to phone someone at kidde but I cant find one on line only where you fill out a form and send it.. I have done that and no one has answered so far... I think I will try the fire dept tomorrow.... no one should have to listen to this days on end... uggg

Worst self help video ever. THAT'S what this guy knows about smoke detectors? Replace battery?? There's nobody watching this video that didn't replace the battery first. IT'S OKAY YOU'RE IN THE SAME BOAT WE ARE HOWEVER IN THE FUTURE IF YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE VARIOUS HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCES FEEL FREE TO NOT MAKE A VIDEO.

I’m a kid so I can’t do this and it is 3:15 am and it’s chirping every like 1 or 2 minutes. So I guess I have to wait until morning because the smoke alarm is in my room so there is no way I’m falling asleep. 😰😰

how long the battery last for wired smoke alarm? .. I bought a new smoke alarm near kitchen which got activated may be couple of times in the last month during cooking. Now its started chirping, It may be battery change required but I am skeptical whether it will drain so fast.
