NO MORE BEEPING!

I don't now how it is in your house,but in my house there is a lot of beeping going on.
The dishwasher when done beeps 8 times.The washer beeps 2 times when finished and keeps it up until turned off.Same with Microwave BEEP BEEP...
..BEEP BEEP...
The stove beeps when finished with preheating,one lone beeeeeeeep.The fridge beeps when the door is left open to long,it never stops when my teenager comes home from school and does so continues one weekends.
Now my dryer has decided to randomly turn ITSELF on only to beep .If i turn IT off ,IT will turn Itself on,sometimes right away sometimes 20 minutes later.Can't reach the plug by myself.And to top it off Monty(three year old son) and IT are singing a duet.
That's enough beeping to drive you beeping crazy,but like they say :"Iv you can't beat them join them."
BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEEP BEEPBEEP BEPBEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP......BEEP

Re: NO MORE BEEPING!

Some people don't notice beeps. One of our fire alarms is always needing a new battery and my DH and I do not even notice them anymore. When guests come over they are like aaaggghhhhh.... give me a battery I will replace them!
maybe becasue we are usually soooo busy.
We have been trying to change and we notice then beeping we usually replace the battery ...recently at least.

Wow your house sounds v high tech! The only thing that beeps in my house is the fire alarm when the battery's dying and that's enough to drive you mad on it's own

Re: NO MORE BEEPING!

Darn beeping smoke alarms! Friday night one of them started beeping at 1:15 in the morning. It was keeping me from sleeping so I got up and spent the next hour trying to figure out which stinking one it was. I knew it was was one of the 4 upstairs (one in each bedroom and 1 in the hallway)...I ended up taking all 4 down and removing the batteries and I was still hearing a faint beep (maybe it was in my head). I finally took them all downstairs and put them in the washer/dryer closet, the furthest point from my bedroom.

And what really ticked me off is that my father changed all the batteries when they were here at Christmas. And they were fresh batteries! Grrrrrrrr!

And that reminds me, I need to go out and get batteries for them today. Need to change them all since I never did figure out which one it was.

Re: NO MORE BEEPING!

all this chat about fire alarms reminds me of that episode of Friends (The One where they're up all night - oh dear - it's a bit sad that I know that!) where Phoebe spends the night arguing with the beeping fire alarm.

It has to be one of the most annoying sounds....and always seems to kick off at night time

Re: NO MORE BEEPING!

I'm with ya on annoying beeps! The dryer my husband had when I first moved in with him was so annoying and I was glad the day that it died and we had to get a new one. I made sure it was much quieter than the previous one.

As far as our smoke alarms, we have those "integrated" ones in part of the house since the addition was put on, so if one battery goes weak they all start beeping! When that happens, cats scatter and hide, the dog stands there and barks viciously and hubby runs around the house trying to figure out which alarm it is while the kids cry that there may be a fire in the house. He's usually great at changing the batteries every 6 months along with the time changes but last year when they adjusted the time change he forgot.

Thankfully our microwave only beeps a couple times when its finished and repeats one more time in about a minute. If you forget to get the food after that second warning, too bad so sad.

Re: NO MORE BEEPING!

You would think the smoke detectors could actually have a little light on them that blinks red when the battery is low, rather than just start beeping every 10 seconds. Or an override button that when it starts beeping in the middle of the night, you can hit it and it will re-trigger 12 hours later, during the day. Or just beep once an hour when it starts to go and after a day or two escalate. I realize it's important to keep them changed, but not in the middle of the night. So now they've all been disconnected for 3 days because I haven't gotten to the store for batteries.
