Question about Lentek Super Bark Free Training Device - PC16

Open Question

Does not make noise except when I push test button

Product only sounds when we push the test button--makes a loud squeal like smoke detectors do. It has new batteries, operating instructions are clear and simple, we've tried every single combination of settings, tried beating drums in front of it, "whoofing", tried stirring up the dog to "whoof" , tried pretty much everything. This is a replacement product LENtek sent us for first one we bought online which didn't work either. Because the products are identical in their non-functionality, we wonder if we missed something. In our opinion, there doesn't seem to be much to miss. We understand we can't hear ultrasonic on that setting, but we'd assume our cats might wake up during testing in the living room. They don't, unless we push the test button and have it set on Audio. then everyone wakes up. Any ideas? Laura

Sump Pump Failure Warning Device

A simple inexpensive homemade device to detect a sump pump failure in your home can be made for under $15.

You will use this device in your sump pump hole or any other place in the home or business where you want to detect an abnormal level or rise of water that may cause damage due to mechanical failure.

You can make this device with the purchase of a common smoke detector which can be purchased from any home repair retail outlet for between eight to $13, and a length of speaker wire (approximately 10’) for about two dollars. Total cost $10-$15.

The smoke detector will be used to detect the presence of water at a predetermined height using the length of speaker wire as a switch to activate the smoke detector.

To make the water level sensor device do the following:

Remove the cover from the smoke detector.

Strip and separate both wires from each end of the speaker wire. Expose ¼ - ½ inch wire at each end and split the wires to separate them from one another as needed to connect to the detector. (The end of wire leads to detect water level need only about one inch of separation.)

Next, find on the smoke detector where the circuit is made when you push the button on the cover to test the smoke detector device. You will need to attach one lead end to each side of this circuit with the speaker wire leads. No soldering is necessary. Simply just slide one lead under a piece of metal which can be pried up slightly and let the pinching action be used to hold it in place. Place the second lead similarly on the other side of the circuit. Route the speaker wire to the outside of the case in a way to not interfere with the cover. Put a battery in and replace the cover to the smoke detector.

Check that your connections on the smoke detector work by touching the two leads together on the end of the speaker wire. The alarm should go off the same as if you have pushed the test button circuit.

Now you can place the smoke detector in a suitable location next to the sump and also place the exposed wire leads of the speaker wire down into the sump hole at the level you want to detect a “high water level”. Make sure the wire leads do not touch anything that will cause them to short across one another and sound the alarm prematurely.

The level at which the leads should be set, should be a couple inches higher than the level at which the sump pump kicks on to pump the water out. If the pump fails and the water level rises to the wire leads, the smoke alarm will go off, alerting you to the situation.

Why does my smoke alarms not all go off when I push test button?


I am assuming that your detectors are interconnected to all sound at the same time.
Pushing the test button is not the same electrically as an alarm activation.
The Kiddie manual does not mention the sequence of operations when the test button is pressed. You may want to contact Kiddie to find out if this is ok.
You can also test your detector with smoke to see if they all sound like they are supposed to.

New smoke detector, new batteries, red light flashing is that normal


copied from the manual, available at the kidde website

RED AND GREEN LED INDICATORS This smoke alarm features separate red and green LED indicators. The LEDs indicate the following: GREEN LED CONSTANT ON - AC power is present. OFF - AC power is not present. RED LED - Can be seen through the Push-to-Test button. Blinks once a minute - Indicating presence of a working battery. Blinks once a second - Smoke alarm senses smoke and simultaneously sounds an audible alarm. Blinks once every 10 seconds - Smoke alarm is quieting an unwanted alarm (Model ADC only). (Interconnected system only): OFF - Another smoke alarm in the network has sensed smoke and is signalling this alarm.

Loud noise burning smell


Most likely a belt problem or a worn out tensioner. You left off the year, make, model and engine so it's a guessing gamet. Read this post on how to track down the source of noise

05 neon making squealing noise while driving. the noise stops when brakes are pushed


inferior pads or improperly installed. it could be that they just need to conform to the disc and the sound will go away, but you should find out that everything else is ok. if you got one of those brake jobs with a lifetime warranty, then its definitely because of the pad material.

Kiddei12040 goes off maybe once or twice a day. it goes sometimes for 10 min at a time. It is hardwired and its not a chirpping sound either. house was built 3 months ago.


It may simply need cleaning, because there's dust or lint in the sensor.

What you'll need: A ladder to reach the smoke detector and a can of compressed air that has a straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with).

Carefully remove the cover of the smoke detector. Use the canned compressed air with the straw nozzle to blow out the interior of the detector. Be sure to hold the canned air as upright as possible while using it. Once you've cleaned the interior, clean the outer cover. Replace the cover and push the test button. Then detector may false at first, because the canned compressed air is cold. However, once the detector reaches room temperature it should stop.

That should help solve your alarming problem. Smoke detectors should be clean like this, at least once a year. More if it's a dusty environment.
