Manawolf: 2; Smoke Detector: 1

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. It started beeping again. Several smacks later and it won't stop.

Aside from calling the landlord (and aside from bashing it to death with a broom handle), ideas?

EDIT: Smoke detector removed from wall. Now, the wall unit won't stop chirping - and so does the detector, even though it's both removed from the wall AND the batteries are out.

Must... resist... use of hammer...

EDIT 2: I think... THINK... It may have stopped. *cautious sigh of relief*


In my 5am research about the subject, I found that smoke detectors shouldn't go just anywhere. Check out the last question here.
Ironically I have one right next to the kitchen and it never goes off while cooking. The one in the front of the house goes off when cooking and it's no where near the kitchen. ^^;; It's the same thing with the one in the bedroom. The one in the hallway is right near there and never goes off with shower steam. Ah well...
Well there's location, and then there's air circulation. The one by your stove might actually get better air circulation than the one in front!
