Smoke Alarm Information
Why is my smoke alarm chirping?
If this is a battery powered detector, a chirp approximately once a minute typically indicates a low battery. Try replacing the battery, if that does not solve the problem replace the detector. For assistance, please call Clermont Fire Department's non-emergency dispatch center at 352-383-1200.
My smoke detector goes off for no reason, but only for a few seconds, what could be wrong?
This may be caused by dust or a small insect in the sensing part of the detector. Try vacuuming the outside of the detector to remove dust or pests that may have accumulated on the inside of the detector. If this does not solve the problem replace the detector.
