How do I get my fire alarm to stop beeping every 30 seconds?
When you start to hear the beeping or chirping, replace the battery with the exact same type that is in it. This will reset the smoke detector and will make it stop beeping and chirping.
How do you turn off a fire alarm in an apartment?
Manually pressing and holding the “silence” button on the smoke detector/fire alarm will cause it to stop sounding but not permanently turn it off. On older models, you may need to unscrew the alarm from the wall or ceiling and hold down a button on the back.
How do you remove a fire alarm from the ceiling?
Confirm whether the smoke detector is battery-operated or hard-wired. Grasp the detector in your hand and twist the unit in a counterclockwise rotation. This will free the body of the detector from the mounting bracket. Gently pull it away from the bracket when it is free.
