Answer: 
Three reason for it to be beeping.
1) Low or bad battery.
2) No A/C power
3) Smoke detector is bad and needs to be replaced.
If it is bad this is a very simple replacement. Turn the detector counter clockwise. You will see the wiring that snaps into the back of the detector. Simply un snap the wiring harness from the detector. Make sure you buy the same brand (under $15.00!at HD). Once you have the Read More

Once you have the detector out of the box snap the harness into the new detector, gentle fold the wires back into the box and screw the new detector vlockwise onto the base. There are no exposed parts so there should be no electrical hazards. Best of luck. Read Less

To temporarily stop the BEEPING, Removing Battery is not enough! It must ALSO be UNPLUGGED.
It is SAFEST to turn off the electrical circuit at the breaker box to make its green light go off.

Answer: 
Should of mentioned in my comment that before replacing the unit, you should have read the owners manual on maintenance of the unit first. Also check the manufacturing date on the bottom of the unit. Should be replaced every ten years. See NFPA recommendations

Answer: 
The unit is bad and needs replacing, or the hard wiring lost its connection, either way it is a good idea to replace the unit. Always replace with all new parts and wiring connectors.

Answer: 
It is possible that one of the other units in line with the one beeping, is in need of a new battery, or possibly the battery you replaced is not a good battery. Also, check to be sure that you have installed the battery in the correct position in the detector.

Answer: 
You would have to remove the battery backup and then shut off the circuit in the service panel if it is a "dedicated" circuit which I believe it should be. That means there should a breaker switch that controls only the alarms. I believe battery only units are better and one in each room. Many local fire departments give them away.

Answer: 
Once installed these are not designed to be turned on and off. The battery is merely a back up power connection. So you can either disconnect the wires from the back of the unit, or turn off at the fuse box the particular fuse which powers this unit. The fuse box will probably turn off other electrical outlets which use this set of wiring.

I currently have 6 FIREX installed (by a electrician) and they are hardwired smoke alarms with a plug in from the alarm to the ceiling fixture. I need to get some new ones and can't find any around here. Can they be ordered on line? The ones I have are Model FADC item#5000 120-1056E.

Answer: 
Check the manufacturers web site. They have a list of new model numbers that replace older model numbers. With the new model # you should be able to find them on line. This is what I did and found them on the Home Depotwebsite

Answer: 
You can order them and pick them up from Home depot or have them shipped to you if they still make that model. In truth, and most FireX 120 volt alarms can replace the ones you have and they should fit the same plug interface and would be a quick replacement.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 189 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hard wired, Interconnnected Smoke Alaem I Replaced a faulty smoke detector with this model. It was easy and quick to replace the faulty smoke detector with this new model. The installation instructions were understandable and easy to follow. The replacement smoke detector has been working for the last two months with no problems. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I hope I'll never need this alarm to go off! Easy to install. I like that it's "hard-wired" to electricity, and has a backup battery (9V) that looks like is easy to change, and easily accessible without having to dismount the alarm (battery was included, which is nice). June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great Value All 6 fire detectors in our recently purchased house were beyond their 10 year life expectancy and had to be replaced. These replacement units were exactly what was needed and the wiring harness provided was an easy install. Order came quickly and I can now sleep in peace knowing the fire detectors are working properly. On line ordering was a breeze. I encourage you to check your fire detectors and replace them immediately if they are expired. There typically is an expiration date on the back or a manufacturing date. If older than 10 years, be safe and replace them. September 8, 2016

I purchased replace my old smoke detector as it began to go off every couple of hours without cause. I purchased this one has a replacement and only took a minute to install. It was easy to use and set up August 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Replacement for previous version Didn't realize it until just recently that our smoke detectors were 16 years old but were only good for 10, so we were looking for replacements. Considered looking for something that would work with our alarm system or something with a 10 year battery, but also investigated replacements for the FIREX wired alarms we had. Found the FIREX were the least expensive and would replace our present alarms AND were least expensive. Replacement was relatively easy with one minor exception - the plug connecting the detector to the power and network (alarms are connected to alert every location) needed to be replaced. Power to that circuit shut off (lights on circuit with alarm system off) and each connector changed :-( It was easy enough for me to do including getting to one that was very hard to reach. If you have this system in your home and it has been ten years - use this. It is effective and efficient. August 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works The product works as expected, but the material used seems very low quality. When I opened the package, it looked like used piece, so returned and got another. The look and feel is same, then realized, the quality is very low. August 30, 2016
