Replace backup battery. Clean or replace detector if still chirping after battery replacement and cleaning. All detectors have a service life and if it is old better safe than sorry.

My nortron smoke detector hard wire has no battery does it need one

It should make a noise if it has no battery after all, electrical fault means house burns and no mains power so no smoke alarm. A bit fundamental.

Where are batteries on model ac12w

Am unable to find much information on Nortron Model AC12W detectors. I do know they are pretty old and may not have a battery back up. Because of the age you may want to think about replacing the detector.

I have 6 smoke detectors & two CO2 detectors hardwired in. The smoke detector in the kitchen went off and now all the detectors will not stop alarming. How do I reset?

First of all, you really should not have a smoke detector in the kitchen as it will be far too prone to false alarms, especially since most household smoke alarms are ionization type, which respond to the presence of gases caused by combustion. A proper system as recommended by NFPA will have one detector in each bedroom, one in each bedroom hallway, and recommended one per floor thereafter, with placement being near exit points to help guide you to the exit during an actual fire (by sound, since it's difficult to see through smoke). I would be inclined to remove that device or try to find a heat detector replacement, such as Kidde Model # HD135F. For now I would vacuum out the device or try a can of compressed air to blow it out, but I would not leave that device long term.

How do I troubleshoot an intermittent problem with a 2 wire system sensor smoke detector

Intermittent problems are often difficult even for professionals. That said, I would need more specifics on the problem if you want to continue on your own first. The model of the system, keypad indications, whether the problem is a trouble or alarm, what make/model the detectors are (there could be more than 1 type on a 2-wire fire zone), etc.

Had customer with CO detector sounding quick double chirp about every five minutes. What is this?

This is not a beeping smoke detector. It is probably a CO detector that was installed by your alarm company. GE model 240-COE will give a double beep every 5.5 minutes when the device reaches end of life. Call your alarm company to have it replaced.

Nortron smoke detector

bro there is a possibility that the sensor is going off due to power surges while using the dryer, turning it on and off will cause power fluctuations, you need an electrician to measure the current\voltage while you which on the dryer, if this is the cause he will advise you on how to avoid future false alarms.

BRK smoke/co2 detector - won't stop beeping

sometimes the alarms are ganged to other apartments .. that's so if there is a fire in one apartment then others are alerted as well .. so the low battery warning could be from a neighbor ... also there may be a common ceiling space that will allow you to hear your neighbors detector .. at any rate someone around you has a low battery in their detector .. if they are ganged then that may be an apartment management maintenance item ..
