Usually indicative of low battery. To locate the device, try using a piece of tape to cover the sound port. You'll know you've found the right one when the sound level changes. Don't know, but I'd bet there's more than one chirping as well.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Our smoke alarm with battery

You didn't mention if you had replaced the battery, yet. If you haven't, then that's more than likely the problem. Also, it probably needs cleaning. You can accomplish this by using canned compressed air (like you clean your computer with). Use the straw nozzle to reach all the nooks and crannies. Clean after removing the old battery and before installing the new battery. Batteries should be changed annually and at the same time clean the unit. When using the canned compressed air, try to keep the can in the upright position, as much as possible.

I have the Firex i4618, after changing the battery it continues to chirp, have tried 2 new Duracell proper model batteries with same result.


Smoke Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (Its not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon Amazon: Amazon com Smoke Alarm. I hope this helped you. Have a nice day

They only chirp for two reasons:
1. The sensor is past its useful life and needs replaced
2. There is a power issue with the battery. Even the ones that are hardwired into the electrical system need a battery.

Home security alarm keeps beeping


Most wired-in smoke detectors work off of two sources of power, electric and battery. If the beeping occurs every 30 seconds or so it most likely means you need to replace the battery in the detector. On the other hand if by beeping you mean the alarm is going off, I would first try cleaning the unit with your vacuum. If that doesn't solve the problem then the next step would be to replace the unit. Hope this helps.

A/C motor smokes and stops about 30 seconds after i turn it on


How may times have you tried this then? lol if I were you I would ask an A/C Engineer to pop round and check your supply to the system, and all other electrical systems. Please stop what your doing its quite obvious now there is a fault on the site.

Be safe.
