I have something that is beeping at me exactly every two minutes. I have
ruled out the usual suspects of smoke alarms, the microwave. And even
some stranger ones like my cell phones, oven timers, etc. Sounds to me
like a battery is going dead, but can't figure out what it might be.
Having trouble tracking down where it is because of the long time frame
between beeps. Any suggestions of things to look for?
"Even I realized that money was to politicians what the ecalyptus tree is to
koala bears: food, water, shelter and something to crap on."
dishwasher door opened before the cycle finished, and not relatched?
seen that on two GE's. if you unload it while the "heat dry" cycle is
still going, it'll sit there and beep plaintively at you until you latch
the door (and then it'll finish the cycle.)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Hmmm... On our microwave, if you let it finish, it will beep every few
minutes to remind you there's something in there until you open the
door... Of course, in this case, it's the same sound it normally makes
when it finishes, which is pretty obvious.
My smoke detectors continue to chirp after the batteries are removed. The
first time it happened I continued to look for the culprit for some time after
it was taken care of. Happened again Sunday morning at 4:00AM (though this
time I knew it was going to continue). Stupid things!

Other than that. Two minutes isn't that long of a wait to locate the
beeping. Now if it beeped ever 30 minutes I might give up but not 2
minutes to sit it out.
Giving me ideas.
I bought a Fart Machine in a joke shop in Florida.
Put it anywhere. I like to tape it under a chair.
Then hit the little remote control. Always a different fart,
Yeah, yeah, lowbrow. The 3 Stooges crack me up too.
But I'm thinking a little faint beeping sounder might sell too.
Could work with remote, could be a random timing, never too close
together. Could be real tiny.
Good way to drive the spouse crazy.
I'd get 2, with different signal remotes.
Hide one under a couch, beep it a couple times so the wife gets close,
waiting to pin it down.
Then I'd hit the remote for the one hidden in another room.
Yep, I'd buy.
No, I'm not a prick.
