Hi,

My apartment's hard wired 240V smoke alarm is malfunctioning so our property manager said that if I buy a new smoke alarm, he will reimburse me for the costs.

 

I have no idea where to buy a new smoke alarm of the same type (Kidde 1275) picture below:

Any help appreciated! Thanks guys! Maybe I need to somehow replace it with a different kind if the current model is irreplaceable?

What is the malfunction? Even though it is mains powered it still has a battery that can go flat and result in the usual flat battery chirp. The same unit appears to be sold under the Quell brand. If you don't own the apartment since it is a mains fitting you should let the property manager arrange for it to be sorted as it has to be disconnected to change battery.

New battery in it after first signs of malfunction. The malfunction is the alarm fully goes off in the middle of the night repeatedly.
