I have a Kidde model 0976 9V battery powered ionization smoke alarm. It chirps roughly every 45 seconds. I have changed the battery but did not cure the problem. Any ideas as to what the problem is? Thanks

Hi - I think I just fixed the problem for mine. I had the exact same problem. Literally just got back from the store with 2 brand new 9v batteries with an exp. date of 2013 (I made absolute certain they would be years away from expiring). I installed them, and I'll be damned if they didn't start chirping again. As I read the instructions one more time, it occurred to me that it was in hush mode. I pressed the "Push and and Hold To Test" button for about 2 seconds - not long enough to set it off. It hasn't chirped since, and it's been nearly an hour. Try that and see what happens. Good luck!

My Kidde Model 1285 keeps chirping even after I changed the batteries, any ideas why?


Be sure you are using a well known brand battery. The store brands, in my my opinion generally are not quite up to par. Try this and see if the chirp will stop. Thanks for asking me.

My kidde AC smoke alarm I12020 chirps at night then come daylight it makes no noise


Most "chirping" is indicative of low batteries. Perhaps your smokes are improperly wired through a light switch? As to locating, try using a piece of tape over the sound port to change the sound; with these problems there are often more than one causing it. Check also to see if you have any CO alarms that were plugged into a switched outlet. Most of these also have battery backup. Good luck!

I have the Firex i4618, after changing the battery it continues to chirp, have tried 2 new Duracell proper model batteries with same result.


Smoke Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (Its not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon Amazon: Amazon com Smoke Alarm. I hope this helped you. Have a nice day

Kidde smoke alarm won't stop chirping . I have replaced the batteries and nothing seems to fix the problem


Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.
