Mine was (was) mounted right above the stove. It went off every, and I mean every time we cooked.
It is now mounted on the side wall about 6" from ceiling above the dining table. No issues since.

Just a note on range hoods not all exhaust to the outside my 3029W Windjammer has a recirculating range hood witch makes it worthless for anything but having a nice light over the stove!

Agreed, replace it. Get one with a silence feature. This allows you to cancel the alarm for a preset amount of time without having to remove the battery. I would also wager that different brands of alarms have different alarm thresholds (i.e., will go off with different amounts of smoke). Maybe the one you have is hyper sensitive. The smoke detectors in planes will alarm with vapor and even super high humidity. That is why vapor sticks and ecigs are not allowed to be used on planes.

Hi, this is DW...I rarely use hood vent. I always open/turn on exhaust fan in kitchen ceiling and also open the small window in kitchen. I don't know if you have this option when you cook, but it helps.

Check Home Depot. They have all sorts of smoke alarms. Some are specifically made for kitchens (maybe those aren't as sensitive to the kitchen odors).

Smok Detector sounding while cooking

This has happened to me several times. Vent fan open and working. I had to replace some detectors in the house. They came with little "shower caps" for dust or painting. I just cover the trailer detector, if there is a problem, then remove and store when finished.
