I have 2 propane
sensors on my boat, and one just died.
Returned home to an alarm
plus amber light, indicating malfunction
. After turning the house bank off and back on, no light on the panel at all indicating no sensor detected.
I'm trying to figure out which one I actually need to replace. On another board a few people suggested holding a lighter by the sensor. Well I tried that trick by both sensors, light the lighter then blew it out while still holding the button so fuel
is still coming out, and didn't get an alarm
on either one.
If I press the test button on the panel, for the sensor that I still have a green light for, the alarm goes off, indicating that everything is working.
Am I doing something wrong? Held the lighter down there for quite some time. Does that trick not really work?
I have a cat, with one sensor in each hull
...and had water
in one hull
, so I'm guessing that's the bad one. If I remember correctly the light that's out now, is the one that set off the alarm when it got wet.
I'm really trying to figure out if I'm doing something wrong here, or potentially have 2 bad sensors or what, though?
