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.

What is the problem when red light blinks but there is no green light

Check the Kidde website for the manual for your model to get specific info...I'm sure it's probably an error indication, but without the model number it's hard to look up.

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!

Don't know for sure, but if your smoke detector is more than 5 years old, than you have to purchase new one (that's their average lifetime). Take a look on amazon: Amazon com smoke alarm . I hope I have helped. Cheers

It sounds like you have a bad color wheel--it will give a fan like noise before it fails--some describe it as a high pitched whine--if it shattered the set will shut down. It faces the lamp for your set--about 2 inch in diameter with colored segments colored like a pie--this model uses 2 different wheels--label on side of set will give full model number and version number---part is about 130 on Ebay and it requires the light engine to be removed to replace it--takes about 40 minutes--I have seen dozens of these with this problem--you can research it by taking the model number and Google it--lots of sites have general instructions for replacing it---I get lots of them local where someone buys the color wheel and has me come out and replace it(I usually charge 100 for trip and labor to replace it) bottom line is a shop will try to charge you 400 for this repair---but if you can buy it and find someone to do the labor you can repair the set for a reasonable price.

I do this here for free so if this has helped you take a minute and give me a vote here.
