Yesterday my bath flooded through the ceiling. it sent my fire alarms crazy. they were just beeping and screetching. I turned off all my electric hoping they would dry out. this stopped them but this morning they are doing it again. even withthe electric off, every few minutes. Its extremely loud! worried the neighbours will complain or call the fire brigade! They are still doing it even with the electric off and There seems to be no way to get it off the wall! any ideas what I should do??

Can you remove the unit. You can unclip the actual aimlarm bit usually. I took mine down when the malfunctioned and just started going off for fuck all reason.

The units will have a back up battery in them. Take the battery out and it will stop beeping.

any ideas which one that is?? I have 3 of the blooming things and they are all going off. My neighbours must hate me!

Nope, mine has an obvious battery compartment for a 9v battery (the rectangular ones).

At this stage I’d put them in a box and take them outside, or bury them under a pile of cushions and duvets in another room!

Yes they came and removed them all and said they were very old. They will be replacing them at some point. thanks for asking!
