Checking your smoke detector
Your smoke detector is a round, white alarm located on the ceiling.
There is a small test button on the alarm which is usually colored. Push and hold the button for several seconds until you hear an alarm sound.
If after 15-20 seconds there is no sound, change the battery and then repeat this test.
Your smoke detector may be powered by any of the following sources:
- Wired to the house wiring
- 9-Volt Battery operation
- 9-Volt Battery Back-up
Remember: Never reinstall your smoke detector without a fresh battery!
