Check the Kidde website for the manual for your model to get specific info...I'm sure it's probably an error indication, but without the model number it's hard to look up.

Don't know for sure, but if your smoke detector is more than 5 years old, than you have to purchase new one (that's their average lifetime). Take a look on amazon: Amazon com smoke alarm. I hope I have helped. Cheers

The Kidde website does have a lot of manuals but you need the model number. Try going to this URL, then browse by subject. You'll probably find the answer there.

I assume your alarm is hard wired which should have its own circuit especially if there are any fluorescent lights on the same circuit.

Change the 9V backup battery,with a new one.Push and hold the reset button for a minute or two for the alarm to to go off like about 30-40 sec. for the smoke detector to dectected the 9V backup battery power sourced.The green power LED light indicator will stop flashing also the beeping sounds too.

You didn't mention if you had replaced the battery, yet. If you haven't, then that's more than likely the problem. Also, it probably needs cleaning. You can accomplish this by using canned compressed air (like you clean your computer with). Use the straw nozzle to reach all the nooks and crannies. Clean after removing the old battery and before installing the new battery. Batteries should be changed annually and at the same time clean the unit. When using the canned compressed air, try to keep the can in the upright position, as much as possible.

Ours keeps chirping even after we replaced the battery. I'm not sure how to fix it.

We are going to try and clean it but if it keeps doing it after that then I guess it means it needs to be replaced, right?

Check to see if the unit has a replaceable battery. If not, you will likely find instructions on front or back that tell you exactly what the beeping means.

New battery may be faulty, need a good quality battery in smoke alarms

Kidde Home | Answered on Aug 24, 2014

The chirp means the battery you chose wasn't good enough... it has to be the newest '''alkaline''' you can get hold of. If it isn't alkaline that's why you are having trouble. Upon replacement press the button to do a hard reset.
