HELP! Can't turn off propane alarm!!

Our propane alarm has gone off, RV is open, propane is off, no odor detected. There were some fabric softener sheets nearby.

Can't get the alarm to stop nor find instructions for this. All the fuses have been removed and returned, nothing changes.

We are in a fairground in AR, no one nearby to help.

Beeping shrilly!

HELP!!


Maggie

As I understand it, the alarm is wired directly to the battery. I have reset mine by holding down the button for about 10 seconds.

Press the button on the monitor for a few seconds and the light should go green again. If not then you may still have gas in the AS.

Doug started to take the sensor box apart to disconnect the wires, beeping stopped and light turned green.

It was been going off for about 15 minutes.

What is happening???

Thanks, guys.

We tried holding the button down 5-6 seconds, no change, didn't go to 10.

I don't think there is a propane leak. Could the fabric softener sheets have done this?

It is off, now, Doug is putting things back together.

My head hurts.

Bug spray, or virtually anything that comes out of an aerosol can, seems to set mine off.

Once it goes off it is triggered and continues to beep. It is reset by pressing hte button. Then retests the system set to "Sample" the air again. If no gas is present it is OK. If it is triggered agin then it detects gas and there is a problem. Then of course, it is a electronic system and could have failed.

No aerosol anything in here.

Oh, to have been in a campground. Help would have been here in seconds. We are the only ones here.

Mine has gone off when the exterior shower door fell open and across the exhaust. We could smell something different but it took a bit to figure that one out.

Also lighting the oven set our off. We need more practice with that.

I had lit a small candle, but do that every evening and this has never happened before.

Fabric sheets? in an interstate? You have a dryer in there?

Check that the exhaust on it and your heaters.

Oh, you're funny.

Of course there is no dryer in here, there is barely room for us and the dog!

I do keep a box of laundry things in the bathroom, right across from the front door where the sensor is. I had moved the box near the door area to clear the bathroom. Thus, wondering was it the dryer sheets.

We turned the propane off immediately, it kept beeping and wouldn't stop!

All is quiet, alarm has remained off.

Thanks, everyone. There is always help here.

Signing off for the night,
