How do you get a smoke alarm to stop chirping without a battery?
1. Reset the Smoke Detector
- Turn off the power to the smoke detector at your circuit breaker.
- Remove the detector from its mounting bracket and unplug the power supply.
- Remove the battery from the smoke detector (if there is a battery).
- With the battery removed, press and hold the test button for 15 to 20 seconds.
Why does the smoke detector keep beeping without battery?
A beeping alarm means that there is a problem with the unit, which typically is a dead or dying battery. The battery is necessary for proper operation. Removing the battery does not stop the beeping on most devices.
Will smoke alarm eventually stop beeping?
The Smoke Alarm Is Chirping
When that battery is getting low, the alarm chirps to let you know. It’s important not to ignore the chirping; that’s why it’s so annoying. If you ignore it long enough, it will stop because the battery is dead and you’re no longer protected.
Why is my fire alarm chirping?
As the battery in a smoke alarm becomes weak, the smoke alarm will “chirp” about once a minute to alert you that the battery needs to be replaced. Note: Only the alarm with a low battery will chirp. No signal is sent through the interconnect wire. The other alarms will be silent.
