Customers should immediately contact their security or fire system provider to determine if any of their units are included in the recall. You have no items in your shopping cart. Searching for information about the cause for false alarms from smoke detectors led me to understand that the optical chambers sometimes referred to as smoke chambers are often the cause and that periodically cleaning them by vacuuming the ports of the detector or blowing them with compressed air can exl the problem. I have seven GE Security CC smoke detectors that are about 8 years old as far as I know house is 8 years old but I bought it 2 years ago. Customers also shopped for.

A pulsed infrared light-emitting diode serves as the light source, and a high-speed photo-diode as the sensing element. This design has superior protection against false alarms caused by dust, insects, RF, and ambient light.
These smoke detectors are especially suited for residential occupancies, including hotels, motels, and dormitories, as well as other commercial and industrial fire-system applications.
This series is designed for two-wire and four-wire connection to VDC fire alarm control panels, UL Listed for commercial or household fire protection. Self-diagnostics including automatic sensitivity testing. Each detector in the series continually monitors its own sensitivity and operational status see Maintenance. A wide range of optional features are offered as shown in the Product Selection Guide. To provide for almost any application, these options include a built-in sounder, an auxiliary relay, an integral heat detector, and an isolated heat detector.
Selecting a Location Selecting a suitable location is critical to the operation of smoke alarms. See Figure 1. The major threat from fire in a family living unit occurs at night when everyone is asleep. The principal threat to persons in sleeping areas comes from fires in the remainder of the unit. Therefore, a smoke alarm s is best located between the bedroom areas and the rest of the unit. In units with only one bedroom area on one floor, the smoke alarm s should be located as shown in Figure 1 A.
In family living units with more than one bedroom area or with more than one floor, more than one smoke alarm is required, as shown in Figure 1 B. In addition to smoke alarms outside of the sleeping areas, the installation of a smoke alarm on each additional story of the family living unit, including the basement, is required.
These installations are shown in Figure 1 C. The living area smoke alarm should be installed in the living room or near the stairway to the upper level, or in both locations. The basement smoke alarm should be installed in close proximity to the stairway leading to the floor above. Where installed on an open-joisted ceiling, the alarm should be placed on the bottom of the joists.
The alarm should be positioned relative to the stairway to intercept smoke coming from a fire in the basement before the smoke enters the stairway.
