I've got an older trident gas control panel
(see pic) and the alarm
keeps going off. I had the tanks
serviced and they haven't been reconnected yet. They're definitely not leaking, it was sounding even when they weren't on the boat
tends to go off at the coldest part of the day, like 5 or 6am. It's very hard to reset, sometimes I can stop it with a pin in the reset hole or by turning house power off and on but other times it just keeps blaring no matter what I do and I have to leave the power off to go back to sleep.
Any likely explanations or solutions here? Honestly I'm not even sure how the alarm works. I thought it was based on pressure changes which would make sense with the timing and would imply that when the tanks
are reconnected it will work
, but the more I search the more it seems likely to be a sniffer which would imply a faulty sensor. The alarm/sensor is located behind the stove
And unless it was a lucky false alarm, the alarm did work
correctly by alerting me that I had a leaky valve at the tank a couple months ago.
