BATTERY REPLACEMENT Always turn off power to smoke alarm before replacing battery.
Replace battery at least once a year, or immediately when the low
battery signal sounds (a beep once per minute indicates low bat-
tery). Batteries should be replaced regularly as necessary, even
when the smoke alarm is receiving AC power.
Use only the following batteries as replacements in this smoke alarm: Eveready 216, 522, 1222, Duracell MN 1604, or Ultralife U9VL-J [Alkaline batteries 9Volt] DO NOT USE RECHARGEABLE
BATTERIES.

1. Turn off power to smoke alarm at main service panel.
2. Turn smoke alarm counter-clockwise to detach from mounting plate.
3. Gently pull down smoke alarm. Be careful not to separate wire
connections.
4. Pull out power plug from back of smoke alarm.
5. From back of smoke alarm, lift tab to open battery pocket door.
6. Remove battery from pocket. Disconnect and discard bad battery from battery connector.
7. Connect a fresh, 9-volt battery to connector. The battery will fit
only one way. Be sure battery connector is securely attached to
battery terminals.
8. Place battery into battery pocket.
9. Close battery pocket door. Push down until it snaps into place.
10. Replace connector plug. Connector will "snap" into place.
Gently tug connector to be sure it is attached properly.
11. Reattach smoke alarm to mounting plate by turning smoke
alarm clockwise until it snaps into plate.
12. Turn on power and test smoke alarm using Push-to-Test button

Hi,

Here are the steps:
Was this always like this? If not, change the batteries, clean it up. Consult the local fire dept. The help for free.

If that does not work, you will need to get it serviced/repaired.

I have a FX1218 and I can't get the lid off to replace the battery


This appears to be a smoke detector, not a camera

I have two firex smoke and carbon dectectors, and 3 smoke detectors in bedrooms.


do they beep three times, pause then beep three times again? if so, they are going into alarm. since they all ring together, the only way to tell which one is causing the problem is to look for one where the leds are different than the others. If your detectors are more than 10 years old, replace them all as required by the national fire code (NFPA72). If they are only doing single chirps, that is usually an indication of a low battery...perhaps the breaker for the circuit has tripped causing them to run on battery only. good luck

My new Firex 21007581 with a new battery keeps chirping. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Thanks Sal


He said it had a new battery so he already did that and why would you service a $12 throw away smoke alarm? This FIREX he identified is the 4618 and will also chirp while the LED light blinks, chirp is about 30 seconds after blink if the unit itself needs to be replaced because there is something wrong with it as opposed to a different chirp pattern for battieries. If still unerwarrantee FIREX will replace otherwise go buy a new one.

How to replace battery back-up in hard-wired ceiling mounted residential Firex Smoke Detector? Model number unknown but units about 10 y.o. - circular in shape and cream coloured.


Those battery holders are not easy to find on that model. However, look for a small screw on the outer perimeter of the detector. That's the door that needs to removed to replace the back-up battery. Some models don't have the screw, but can be popped open with gentle pressure using a flat tip screw driver.

Hope that helped to solve your problem.
