-Possibly it toasted. Try an other battery, if it's working then you're fine. If not then it totally toasted.


Good Luck

3 new Kidde i4618 smoke detectors were put in last week. Last night one of them began chirping. I went to the store and bought brand new batteries and replaced them and tested the units which all worked....


smoke detectors work by smelling the air across a radioactive anode which upsets the electronics and sets off the alarm
it can be set off not only by smoke but by heat and gasses in the air
the new and better product is a photo electric detector which alerts earlier and can be installed connected to each room and into the house power or they come with a 10 years lithium battery
It could be a faulty unit so take it back for a warranty exchange unit

Try lithium batteries in it to see if that works better.

Seth thomas autoset wall clock not functioning. replaced both sets of batteries (AA and CR2032), still not working.


I wish I had a solution... I'm in the exact same situation. I put in new batteries, and all I get is a faint reading of gibberish from the LCD screen, and that's it. I've tried following the instructions, but I can't set the time in the LCD clock, since it's unreadable, and almost completely gone. Seththomas.com has a web page indicating that "they will be back with info", but no support or FAQ pages. Disappointing... I have three of these clocks, and they are all behaving the same way.

GE Simon says that the smoke alarm has a low battery. Replaced the batteries, and still receive the same alert. ???


I know some of this sounds obvious but the problem is usally related to 1 of 3 things.

1 Battery oreintation is wrong
2 Replacement batteries were old and were already below the low battery threshold (1.35 volts per battery/ 2.7 volts combined)
3 Didn't use the correct battery - manufacturer recommends lithium batteries (quality alkilines will work but they will have a shorter life)

Beyond this I will need more information to diagnose the issue.

Hardwired smoke detector ocassionally beeps


I ran into this problem about a year after my buddy moved into a new luxury home in Orange County.
The problem is that the battery needs to be replaced! Yes, there is a battery in your hardwired smoke detector!
Since most of these are in extremely high vaulted ceilings, and very hard to get to, you want to replace the alkaline battery with a Lithium battery.
It probably takes a 9-Volt battery. Go to Frys or RadioShack or Smart & Final (they have the best Lithium battery prices here) and buy a 9-Volt lithium battery.
THEN climb up the tall ladder and opo the case open and replace the battery.
The battery is a backup power supply, in case a fire hits when the power is off (happens more often than you might think). This (battery back-up power) is a REQUIREMENT in California, part of the fire code.
Have fun!
