Smoke Detector Keeps Beeping
My hardwired smoke detector keeps beeping. I tried turning off all breakers, but it still beeps. I tried vacuuming the unit and wiping, that didn't help.
It beeps about every 60 seconds. I disconnected the detector from the wiring, but it still beeps from the hardwired sensor. How can I get it to stop?

Replace Hard Wired Smoke Detector Battery
Some hard wired smoke detectors have a battery in them for back up if there is a power failure. If the battery is running low the smoke detector will start making a chirping sound just as you described.
Call the manufacturer-if all else fails-you may need to get it fixed or buy a new one Good Luck. : )
It's worn out. Replace it.
How old is it? It may need to be replaced. I think they're worn out at about 5 years.
Mine did the same thing and sure enough even though electric it had A battery back-up! Good luck with getting it open which was my problem. May God Bless!
