EI151TL 150 Series Ionisation Smoke Alarm c/w Lithium Battery.

This alarm has been working fine for many years but recently it has been giving a single bleep every 2 to 4 hours, the green mains light is on, any suggestions as how to rectify this.
Thanks.

You may be able to reset it. If you hold the test button in for 10 seconds it will force a reset.

If that doesn't work then the battery may be on it's way out.

These are the new models:

Yes
(You won't like it though) Take it down and take it to your local council tip and tell them what it is. It really is radioactive (Not harmful but you can't just bin it")

Its beeping because its non replaceable battery is coming to the end of its life.

As an aside, your detector is obsolete and being ionisation is not always the best one to have (but it does depend on where it is sited)

Note to self: Must learn to type faster.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

Of course you can bin it.

Seems the jury is out on this one.

It depends where you look as to what the answer is.

Either way, the one in question has come to the end of its life.

And if the OP has two detectors then the other one will also soon fail.
