Deta smoke alarm constantly sounding

I bought a new home with the deta smoke alarms fitted in 2017, one alarm started chirping, so replaced the battery with a 9v Varta battery. 


When I replaced it and flipped the fuse on the box it started alarming straight away setting the whole house off - rather annoying, so I removed battery and replaced and again alarm sounding.


Am I doing something wrong?

It does appear that the detector has developed a problem, as you say, it is not supposed to do that.

As there are no user serviceable parts all you can do is change it. I would also suggest you consider changing it to an optical smoke alarm as they are better, you could of course call DETA on 01582 544 548
