Check the terminal voltage of the charger, if its equal to the voltage the batteries are suppose to be then you probably need new batteries.

Two fire/smoke sectors occasionally beeping - no battery inside - connected to NetworX 1448E security system. We have changed the large battery in security - still beeping


If the units are more than 5 to 7 years old they have reached the end of life cycle and need to be replace. Smoke detector typically are only good for 5 to 10 years.

We replaced the batteries but the alarms are still beeping with the low battery warning.


Either the new batteries are out of juice, or they have been installed incorrectly.

Golding93, you could very well have elevated levels of CO in your home. You should leave your house immediately and call the fire department. However, if your CO alarm is 7 years old, it could also be the alarm's end-of-life warning. Regardless, you should definitely call the fire department to have everything checked out. If you need additional assistance with your CO alarm, please call our customer service line at 1-800-880-6788. Thanks for being a Kidde customer. We appreciate your business!

Alarm beeps every 5 mins. I have changed battery and problem still persists.


Tell me what brand your alarm is and I can help you with the beeping. Usually if you hit # it will silence the beeping for 24 hours. Something you can try is finding your main control box. Its usually located in the garage or in a closet. It is tan and 6 x6. First disconnect the battery inside the control box by jiggling off the black/red leeds. Then unplug the power supply. Wait five minutes. Reconnect the battery and plug in the control box. This is completely powering your system down and then repowering it up-essentially "re booting." If this does not correct the issue, give me the brand and I can further help you.

I have a British Gas carbon Monoxide alarm - recently changed the batteries but it now beeps once every minuit, instructions on the inside of the cover says refer to manual - but I can't find. Any idea...


I am having exactly the same problem. It says that the batteries cannot be changed (ccould just be ploy to get us to buy a new unit). mine is only 4 yrs old, and has never beeped before - the light used to blink once when i entered the kitchen. It is now beeping intermittently once per minute same as a smoke alarm needing a new battery.

My refrigerator starts beeping (randomly) when I open the door.


Recently I thought one of my kitchen appliances was beeping and it took an hour to discover that the real culprit was a dying battery in a nearby smoke alarm.
