Why does my smoke detector 755SMA keep false alarming?

Published date: 24 August 2020

Smoke detectors are very sensitive to insects and dust particals. In the event of false alarming you may need to clean your alarm. The alarm can be vacuumed or brushed with a soft brush to remove dust, dirt or kitchen grease that has accumulated. Apply a small amount of insect surface spray to a cloth and wipe around alarm/s every 3-6 months to mitigate insect ingress. It is recommended that the smoke alarm is inspected monthly to ensure it is free from dirt, dust and insects. If this doesn't resolve the false alarming you may be requied to have it serviced and/ or replaced if necessary.

ALWAYS TEST THE SMOKE ALARM AFTER CLEANING
