SOURCE: My Kidde smoke and carbon monoxide alarmmodel no. KN -COSM-8 started to beep in the middle of the night due to low batteries. I changed the batteries and pushed reset/ hush but still beeping.

If its inbetween 6 until 10 years old i recommend in that case to replace the unit because of its chemical compounds and radioactivity materials that will in most cases saturated beware of slightly radioactive material if trying to inspect for defects.

In new 3-alarm system just installed by electrician the alarms issue 3 long beeps and "FIRE" about every 10 minutes. Kidde is not available to help. Can you?

I think it could be one of three things.
The electrician may not have installed the back-up batteries.
The electrician may not have turned the primary power to the detector circuit on when he completed the work and now the battery is depleted.
The electrician may have tied the the detectors into a switched circuit which does not apply constant primary voltage.

Hopefully you can contact the installer to troubleshoot his work.

How to stop chriping problems

Usually it's just a matter of replacing the battery. Replace the unit if it's more than 10 years old (mandatory per NFPA 72) or if replacing the battery does not work.

My Kidde Frynetics 1275 smoke alarms started going off intermittently. (Slower than when there has been smoke in the house from the oven). THere was no fire and no smoke. Not sure why?

Make sure to only use a brand name alkaline 9 volt battery. Don't use a used battery or a dollar store battery (bargain store). Then press the test button for 10 seconds to reset this unit and any more down the line.

Hello I have a KIDDE FYRNETICE smoke alarm.

According to the Kidde website, this unit was discontinued in 2010. If the unit is more than 10 years old it must be replaced per NFPA 72 (assuming you live in the US)
