Smoke Alarm beeps but I can't find a battery to replace
by Jan Jones on December 18th, 2014

Does anyone know how to stop beeping smoke alarms? I have two of them beeping so I bought batteries to install/replace, but when I opened up the alarm I found no battery to replace.

My hard wired ones are a little different from the battery only ones. Instead of opening up the entire unit, they have a little battery compartment on the side. It's a little awkward to fit the batteries in, but they only fit one direction.

Have you tried searching on YouTube for your particular model? A lot of people have "how to" videos on there. Or just Google your model along with "manual PDF" and you can find a manual for it.

Thank you. I took the cover/unit down completely and finally found the secret battery compartment!

I had not been successful searching YouTube before, but I tried again with other search wording and finally found some firefighter who clued me into taking the cover/unit down completely and I was finally able to find the super secret hidden battery compartment! Thanks for the encouragement.

Hi, I know smoke alarms. They are a vital safety feature. I used to carry a fire alarm installation superintendent license with the state of Texas, which was required when I worked for a company who sold and installed these devices They can be pesky especially when the have false alarms. It is important that they are installed in the correct locations to insure timely warning. First alert sells good ones and can be found at home depot for about $20 each, Most homes in Mueller have detectors that are wired into the home electrical system and have a battery backup. When the batteries begin to die as all batteries are wont to do, they begin to beep or chirp. This can be maddening. This requires climbing a ladder and replacing batteries. The other common occurrence, especially in an area like Mueller where there is constant construction is dust or tiny insects who will block the small light sensitive beam that is designed to detect small particles of smoke. I will be happy to evaluate any issue and advise. $25 minimum. I can also give preventive maintenance advice so you can avoid future problems.
