SOURCE: GE/ADT DIY system will not accept master code./beeps twice/2 hour

Press the system status button on the top right and the system should announce the error message that is keeping it from accepting the code.

My smoke detector is chirping even with new battery

Hello, Julie -

1. Try removing and resetting the new battery in the smoke detector.

2. If the smoke detector still chirps, I suggest just purchasing a replacement smoke detector unit.

We have a "main" smoke detector (along with others inside bedrooms and in corridors.) When the "main" smoke detector chirps, we have found we have to replace it, with a fresh battery, entirely. To make sure we purchase the right unit, we remove the entire thing from the ceiling mount and take it to the hardware store.

Best wishes.

I have a kidde smoke detector. I have changed the battery and it is "hard wired", however it continue to chirp. What is my problem and how can I fix it?

Hello -

When our Kidde hard-wired smoke detector "chirps" we have to purchase a replacement unit.

Your local hardware store or home supplies store should carry them. We remove the hard-wired smoke detector and take it to the store to compare to make sure we purchase the right model.

Best wishes.

I have disconnected all smoke detectors, but there is still a chirping coming from one of the locations. there is no smoke detector at that location any longer. why is there still chirping?

The chirping must be coming from some physical object. Sometimes it can be difficult to locate a chirp. Maybe there is a CO detector nearby. Those chirp also.

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.

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

Can you pleas ensure that you have cleaned the unit as well. If it is not broken, that would be the probable cause. You can ask your local fire dept. to assist. They do that for free :-)
