Some advice on a mysterious beeping noise in my house. 19:28 - Jan 11 with 4164 viewsDanTheMan

So a few nights ago it sounded like the fire alarm was beeping. Even though the fire alarms are mains powered I replaced the batteries in both and the noise seemed to stop beeping after I tested the alarms.

Last night the beeping returned. Took the alarms off again thinking maybe one of them is faulty and the beeping continued. Sounds like it's coming from the hall but there is nothing else electric there other than a light. At around 3am it just stopped beeping.

Now it's started again so did the same thing, took the alarms and and stuck them in a completely different room to the sound. Turned the mains off and... Still bloody beeping. Checked the loft, moved the insulation and there's nothing there.

Any idea what the fook it could be before I get an emergency callout? I can't have another night's sleep with it going.

UPDATE:

After a week of beeping, we gave in and got someone over to help us find it. Carpet up, floorboards up and....



There it is. Basically sandwiched between the stairs and the kitchen.

Right now I can hear no beeping and it is fooking bliss.

I'm going to enjoy smashing it into tiny pieces tonight.

It's a signal Bird Box is about to happen and you are one of the chosen ones marked for survival. If you translate the beeping into morse code you will get the co-ordinates of where you need to go. Good luck friend.

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

Well the translation is pretty simple.

"e e e e e e e e e e e e e..." (repeat until you reach 10080 e)

That little yellow box at the back is a fire alarm. It was running out of battery.

Some dodgy wiring there...recommend you install some sort of warning system in case they get too hot and start smoking...

It could be that in the floor. But the only one we have we also stuck outside to eliminate.

We've come to the conclusion that the lazy bar steward here before us has left a battery smoke alarm in the floor upstairs.

Another exciting find from the man who:
- Wired the house himself but didn't earth any of the plug sockets
- Built the conservatory (that he bought off eBay) with his mother which is held together with tape
- Left a clamp behind the shed
- Buried a sink in the garden
- Planted a Eucalyptus tree in the corner of the garden next to the fence, telling next door it was only a small bush, which then obviously grew incredibly large and nearly ripped their shed up.

I'm going to get a new build next time.

‘Buried a sink in the garden’

Not sure why but that really tickled me.
