Depending on manufacturers and such, the catalyst detector element itself may need to be replaced occasionally. Usually cheaper and faster to just get another detector.

This happened to me, my smoke detector started chipping so I changed the batteries. A few seconds later it started chirping again. The answer is in the way you put the batteries in. The smoke detector allows you to put the batteries in wrong and makes a slight connector. This slight connector tricks the detector into thinking the batteries are weak. Simply turn the batteries around so the fat connector of the battery touches the skinny connector of the device. Mine was, fat side on the right.

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.

Remove the battery again and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts inside the detector. Also get a brand new battery as often batteries sit on the store shelf or your own shelf and gradually lose power. J.
