Where is sensor located? As you can see,they are very sensitive to several gasses.Also,the sensor is not very tolerant of dampness.
Had a service
call on one that got fan belt dust on it.
compartments (fumes-I suppose) can set them off.
If it uses a TGS 813 sensor,replacement elements are available from Xintex,ebay,etc.
