We would advise to check the manufacturer's website in order to attain a copy of the testing instructions. 

However, if you can't find such instructions you can try testing your device by pressing and holding the test button on the smoke detector. It can take a few seconds to begin, but a loud, ear-piercing siren should emanate from the smoke detector while the button is pressed. If the sound is weak or nonexistent, replace your batteries or the detector where non-replaceable batteries are fitted.
