    How to Install and Use

    1. Plug your GasKnight into an electrical outlet. You may also use an extension cord to plug in.

      Note: Immediately after plugging in, the device says “welcome to use the gas leak alarm” and the 3-minute-long warm-up process will begin. The blue LED light will blink during the warm-up process.

      2. During the warm-up process, lightly tap the “GasKnight” logo on the front of the detector to test that it is working. 

      Note: After you tap the logo, the red LED will flash and the detector will play the 1st level voice alarm. Wait 5 seconds and then tap again (while 1st level alarm is still sounding) to hear the 2nd level alarm. Wait 5 seconds and then tap again (while the 2nd level alarm is still sounding) to hear the 3rd level alarm. See below for details.

       Alarm Level
      Gas Level Voice Alarm Says… Sound/Flash
      1 2.5 % LEL “Suspected gas leak, please check it.” Yes
      2 6% - 8.8% LEL “Gas leak! Please open the doors and windows." Yes
      3 >8.8% LEL “Danger! Serious gas leak!” Yes

       

      3. Wait for the 3-minute warm-up process to finish and then enjoy the added safety of having a GasKnight in your home.

      Note: After the warm-up process, the detector is operational. Tapping the GasKnight logo will not trigger any test alarms after the warm-up. The blue LED light will blink once every 5 seconds showing that the detector is operational. If a gas leak occurs, the red LED light and voice alarm will both go off. Tap the GasKnight logo to silence the alarm.

      Maintenance: Recalibrate each 6 months by unplugging and plugging back in.

      Replace detector 5 years after purchase date.

      Testing: Unplug the detector and plug it back in to restart the warm-up process. To test, either tap the GasKnight logo during the warm-up process or use a live gas/propane source. Test weekly.

      Note: The GasKnight logo is the test button, but does not work while the detector is operational. The test button only works during the 3-minute warm-up process.
