Smoke detector red light flashes 4 times every 10 seconds

After changing the battery in smoke detector, red light flashes 4 times every 10 seconds for a few hours already. Yellow light is steady and no any sound. Is anyone experienced similar issue?

Hi @yjstar,

The solid yellow light means that the Smoke Detector is not completely on its mounting bracket. Try turning the detector a little bit more clock-wise until you feel it click into place. Once it clicks into place, the yellow light should turn off and the Smoke Detector should resume normal operation.
