I am trying to track a chirping smoke alarm. I think I found it, open it...hard wired...can't find a battery. Now 2 are chirping. Sweet puppy is trembling and hiding from noise. DH is out of town. Frustration abounds!

Can you find the breaker for it in the electricity box outside and turn that section of the home off?

Google what to do.

Turn off circuit breaker. Unhook the detector from the ceiling. Since there is no battery, press the reset or test button for 20 seconds. Connect back to ceiling. Do this will all malfunctioning detectors. When they are all back in place, turn on the circuit breaker.

We must have the same alarms. They only chirp when DH is out of town. And only the ones on the twelve foot ceilings.

When we were first married, an alarm went off in the night. DH got up and disconnected. Two hours later, the battery started. DH pulled it from the ceiling. But it had a THIRD back up of some sort and DH through it off the deck!

Your poor puppy. I would call the fire department.

We had those same smoke alarms in our old house. It only happened when DH was gone. I handled it the same way as your DH, only I put them all in the garage instead of throwing them of the deck.

Have you ever seen the episode of Modern Family with Phil dealing with the same thing?

We had a carbon monoxide detector that wouldn't stop chirping, even with new batteries. Husband found the booklet it originally came with (along with booklets for things we no longer own). Tuned out it was designed to continually beep when it needed to be replaced.

This site has some suggestions for hard wired detectors.

I have this on TV now, and not 2 minutes ago Phoebe was trying to fix her beeping detector. Her solution- she smashed it with her boot!

Good luck. Make sure it's not a Carbon Monoxide detector!
