Smoke Alarm Keeps Beeping

My smoke alarm keeps beeping. How do you get them to stop chirping even with new batteries? They are hard wired, so does one need to shut off the breaker? Which one?

Best Answer

The smoke alarm is chirping because:
- The battery is dead
- The unit is not receiving hard wired power
- The unit is dirty
- The unit is broke

Make sure the replacement battery is good, that the unit is plugged in firmly. Use canned air to blow the dirt out of it. If it keeps chirping replace it.
