My alarm is chirping. I have turned the master electrical switch off, put new batteries in, twice, and disconnected the wires to the SOB, and it still chirps. Help, please.


Check that power is actually coming into the wires with a meter. Clean out any dust. Also did you test the detector after replacing the battery? The chirping also can mean that the detector needs to be replaced.

My hard wired smoke alarm has had a new 9 volt battery installed and even a second new one installed and is still chirping 4 times every 30 seconds.


On many of the newer smoke alarm installations, all of the units are wired together so that if one goes off, it triggers all of the others so that no matter where you are you will definitely hear the maddening noise of the alarms! And if one of the other units has a bad or weak battery not only will it chirp but so will the others.

Only way around this is to cut any and all wires going to each smoke detector. They will still work because each has its own battery but there will be no more triggering of other units.

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.

Smoke detector removed from ceiling. Only wires visible, but I still hear chirping.


Look at the detector you removed, and all others that may still be wired in.
They all have battery backup. Although the detectors are hardwired, the chirping is coming from one of the detectors to let you know to change the battery.

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.

Kidde # 1276 chirps indicating low battery. Battery replaced and chirping continues. Why?


Don't know for sure, but if your smoke detector is more than 5 years old, than you have to purchase new one (that's their average lifetime). Take a look on amazon: Amazon com smoke alarm. I hope I have helped. Cheers

Kidde smoke alarm won't stop chirping . I have replaced the batteries and nothing seems to fix the problem


Most smoke detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-10 years. On the underside of the detectors should be a sticker with installed dated or replace by date. If changing the batteries doesn't stop the chirping it is most like time to replace the detector. If you check the manufacturer website they will give you a life expectancy for your detector.

Smoke alarm keeps chirping.


I am having problems seeing if you have any more data besides "smoke alarm keeps chirping." so I will ask; have you tried changing the battery?
