I have a low flame on stove even though gas is on high?

How do I test my LPG Control and Detection unit?

Testing a LPG Detection system for function.  You can test the system by using a propane source (disposable cigarette lighter or a 1 Lb. disposable propane bottle) at the sensor, discharge a burst of propane at the sensor, the sensor should alarm and send a signal to the panel to shut down the system.  It is a good idea to check all wiring connection for possible corrosion and/or loose connections.

My Propane system does not turn on.

If your LPG Detection System will not turn on, make certain you have power coming into the unit, check all wiring connections and check the fuse. If you have power to the control unit, ensure that you have propane and that the cylinder is turned on.

The alarm continues to sound.

If your LPG Detection System is in alarm and will not silence, disconnect the incoming power to the control panel.  An alarm will sound in the presence of LPG, Butane or many other Hydro-Carbon fumes (battery fumes, fuel, exhaust, cleaners, paint, varnish, etc.).  Always check your LPG system first for possible leakage.  Assured of no LPG leakage, suggest relocating the LPG sensor to an open wall area of the galley, 3 to 4” from a floor surface.  The sensor may be in an area which there is little to no air movement and it may be detecting other fumes or gases other than LPG.

The flame comes on and then slowly burns out, and then I can't light the sove again.

If the flame at the burner or oven ignites but slowly the flame goes very low or goes out, it is an indication the solenoid valve is becoming extremely weak and will stop working.  Time to replace the solenoid.

How do I know that my detector is working?
