All smoke alarms that connect to your household electricity must be replaced every 10 years by code (NFPA 72). Chances are the device is indicating low battery, but it is time to replace it and all others of the same age. Check your local hardware store or call a licensed electrician to replace them.
any spark, smoke and popping noises from any electrical items MUST be treated as highly suspect and a possible fire risk, until professionally tested and given the all clear.
it may just be a few bits of dust burning off, but it MUST be checked before you can assume it is safe. sparks and smoke with a little dust or grease can cause a fire.
i AM trying to frighten you into doing something rapidly, as this could be a serious fire risk, and must be considered dangerous until tested and proven to be safe. i would not be doing my job responsibly if i did not make this point absolutely clear
I just fixed my 110.73932102 model dryer, and have done about a week of web research on that problem. I got a electronic control board from AppliancePartsSolutions.com for about $60 delivered-took about 4 days. Use flat screwdriver to pop off plastic ends of top console. Under plastic ends, find one screw (phillips) on each end-remove. Then, slide console forward 1/2 inch and it should open back to expose innards. Note-follow static elec. charge abatement procedures around all electronics! Part snaps out and in after disconnecting wiring. 20 minutes, tops and you're running again. Less than the service call! Good luck.
