I have to change the batteries on our smoke alarm but I cannot stop it beeping when the batteries are inserted. Can you advise on the problem and the solution.


There is not much that is repairable with smoke detectors, BUT they need to be replaced every 8 to 10 years as the sensitivity declines, MUCH more in homes with smokers....
Just change the detector out, your life is worth it.

Replaced smoke alarm battery and also took down from ceiling--still chirping every 30 seconds. Any thoughts?


The chirping is definitely the low battery warning. Are you sure the battery you put in was good? I would definitely double check the battery using a meter.

Lanson smoke alarm model LANSD240B S/N 139606 Alarm alert beeping. Replaced battery, tried 2 new battries, still beeps. No smoke or fumes found.


try this, remove the unit and take out the battery you will see 4 small rubber plugs in the back.
remove these and take out the 4 screws, you will find a lot of dust and insects in there, gently blow out with compressed air and the sensor as well.
I did 2 problem ones in my house and now they are working fine

Hi I have a wired kidde alarm with a lithium battery. The alarm keeps chirping. How do i replace?


Most of these types open from the side, or have a press-to-release mechanism that operates similar to a ball point pen clicking mechanism. Most have the release directions embossed on the casing; feel around for the raised print.

Regards,

Our carbon monoxide dectector model CO910, bought several years ago (10+) beeps every 30 seconds with an "err" message. All windows where it is are open. No one is feeling ill. Is it just an error on...


CO2 and Smoke detectors have an internal sensor that has a design life of 5 years from the date of manufacture. After the 5 years you start getting false alarms due to the sensor itself exceeding its average life span. On the combination CO2 and Smoke deterctors you will often see a manufacture date or a replace by date inside the cover on the main board.
On AC powered models such as this one you will just get the error when the sensor fails. If you got the full 5+ years out of your CO2 sensor then you should be happy that it served a full life expectancy.

Some Wiki data on CO2 detectors:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_monoxide_detector

This paragragh appears under installation

The gas sensors in CO alarms have a limited and indeterminable life span, typically two to five years. The test button on a CO alarm only tests the battery and circuitry not the sensor. CO alarms should be tested with an external source of calibrated test gas, as recommended by the latest version of NFPA 720. Alarms over five years old should be replaced but they should be checked on installation and at least annually during the manufacturers warranty period.
