I have 3 Firex G-6 smoke detectors in my home and today the upstairs one(hardwired only) began "chirping". Freaking my dog out! LOL I removed it from the ceiling plate and it is STILL chirping in the ceiling. What should I do? The other 2 are quiet...since the units are 10 yrs old, I need to replace them anyway.

I solved my problem by replacing my alarms; they were over ten years old and were prone to chirp whenever the room temperature where they were located dropped below 50 degrees or whenever there was a power outage.

If your FireX smoke alarms are over 10 years old, it's time to replace them. The alarms are warranted for five years and each alarm has a date of manufacture on the back.

Compatible FireX model numbers are 406, 428, and 41216.

What are compatible Kidde detectors. Firex was bot out by Kidde and Firex no longer exists.
