Jordan and Tate from Florance Electrical with another handy electrical tip. We are going to show you how to replace a 9V battery in your Brooks 240V smoke alarm. This brand of smoke alarms are a little bit trickier than usual to replace the battery in. Rather than having a button on the side that simply depresses to allow access to the internal areas of the smoke alarm. Brooks smoke alarms have a flat slot of the side that needs a tool pressed into it to allow the smoke alarm to be pushed away and clip off of the ceiling. Ideally a small flat head screwdriver should be used but essentially anything that will fit the slot without damaging the smoke alarm is perfect. Such as a butter knife, bobby pin or anything close by that fits.
If your smoke alarm is chirping intermittently typically this means that the smoke alarm has a flat 9V backup battery. Simply, press the flat tool into the side identified by a label stating this instruction, also identified by the small flat gap for the tool.
Push the smoke alarm away from your person.
Replace the battery with new. Place the battery back into the battery compartment.
Re-install the alarm in the opposite manner. Place against the smoke alarm base and move towards your person ensuring that the clips are lining up.
