How to Test Kidde Smoke Alarms

Save

Any home should have at least one smoke alarm to provide personal security in the case of a fire. Kidde is a manufacturer of smoke alarms that run off your home's electricity and have a battery backup should the home happen to lose power. Kidde recommends a weekly fire alarm test to ensure safety for the home and family. Each Kidde fire alarm has a built-in testing feature which gives instant results.

Place a chair, stool, or other sturdy object beneath the Kidde alarm. Stand on the chair or stool to get easy access to the alarm.

Locate the “Test” button on the face of the alarm. The test button is the only visible button on the alarm.

Press and hold the "Test" button for a minimum of two seconds. As long as the alarm has power, the sound should activate automatically. Check the alarm's batteries and the home's circuit breaker box if the alarm doesn't sound.

Press and hold the "Test" button for two seconds to deactivate the test.
