All smoke alarms beep if the battery is too low. Getting a used battery isn't good enough for smoke alarms. Even getting a new battery from a dollar store (a cheap no name brand import store) will not do... it has to be the newest and it has to be alkaline. once you put it in... press the button for 10 seconds... first you will hear it's own alarm then you will hear the others attached to it in the whole system chime in (if you have that type) the alarm will now sit quietly.

Alarm went off without warning in the early morning.


When you said 27 years, you said a mouthful. The national fire code (NFPA 72) requires that all such smoke alarms be replaced every 10 years. Your detector is well beyond its reasonable life expectancy and needs to be replaced.

My alarm is testing multiple times a day


Check that the battery is installed the right way around. Most smoke alarms can only be tested manually (by pushing the button). If you are hearing a single beep every 50 or 60 seconds then this is the low battery indicator and this will sound if the battery is inserted the wrong way around. If the siren is actually sounding continually then your smoke alarm might be clogged with dust or other foreign matter. All smoke alarms should be replaced every 5 to 7 years as the components in them only have a limited life span.

Kiddie fire alarm model I12060, beeps once every


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.
