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.

If the display shows "Lb", the battery is probably low; replace it. If the display shows "Err", push and hold the Peak Level button. Does the display change to "E09"? If so, then you have just been "had" by the grossly under-documented "planned obsolescence feature" called, rather matter-of-factly, "End of Life". This means that ~7 years after first being powered up, the unit will, BY DESIGN, cease to function, forcing you to buy a replacement. Would have been nice of Kidde to include THAT warning on the OUTSIDE of the package. Call their "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 and tell them what you think of that policy. If it is still under warranty (5 or 7 years depending on date of manufacture) they should replace it. In any event, buy another one; if they replace your first one you will have twice the protection. Not a bad thing. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle. Words to live by: "Every creative act results from a sudden cessation of stupidity." -Edwin H.

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.

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.
