My 1st alert smoke alarm keeps chirping. Changed the batteries in all of them. Have 4 & they are connected (they all go off). After changing the batteries, just one keeps chirping every 20 min or so.

It could be that you put one of the old batteries back in that one, or the new battery was defective.....

My Kidde Model 1285 keeps chirping even after I changed the batteries, any ideas why?


Be sure you are using a well known brand battery. The store brands, in my my opinion generally are not quite up to par. Try this and see if the chirp will stop. Thanks for asking me.

Does this model have a battery backup?


All smoke alarms that connect to your household electricity must be replaced every 10 years by code (NFPA 72). Chances are the device is indicating low battery, but it is time to replace it and all others of the same age. Check your local hardware store or call a licensed electrician to replace them.

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.

Battery connection on new alarm Light Your Way Smoke and Fire alarm


If the battery will not make a connection, it may not be installed properly. The connector requires firm pressure.

My First Alert instructions say to "press and hold the test button on the cover for 5-20 seconds, or until the alarm sounds".

I changed the battery in my smoke alarm and it is still chirping. What can the problem be?


Use a quality battery duracell or energizer. Not ones from the dollar store.

Chirping means low battery.

My alarm and smoke detector keeps beeping a single beep every few minutes


Ours keeps chirping even after we replaced the battery. I'm not sure how to fix it.

We are going to try and clean it but if it keeps doing it after that then I guess it means it needs to be replaced, right?
