This is a good detector at a great price. Highly recommended for anyone that installs combustible gas lines or gas appliances. Even more highly recommended for homeowners and do-it-yourself-ers that do install their own stoves, gas logs, and water heaters. You will not miss a leak with this detector.
When I first unpacked the detector, I was surprised at how light and cheap-feeling it was. It did not come with batteries, so I had to dig out my own AAAs. When I got the batteries installed, it device wouldn't turn on. Assuming the batteries were dead, I put in some new ones. Still nothing. It turned out that the springs that are supposed to make contact with the battery terminals were so flimsy they were being pushed aside by normal battery installation. With a little prodding and coaxing, I managed to get them into proper position, and then finally the unit turned on. Then I put the battery cover on, and it died. Even the slightest bump or nudge throws something out of alignment, apparently. I took the cover off again and poked and prodded some more, and it turned back on.
So I ran my tests without touching the battery cover, and it did seem to work. I tested it on the stove burner without any flame, and it did register gas. Then I took it downstairs to where my wife thought she had smelled gas near the furnace, and I did not get a reading anywhere. So I assume I'm fine and the detector is working, but it's constructed so cheaply, it's hard to know for sure.
At the end of the day, it seems like it works, and that ought to be good enough for most home users. For this price, it's not worth griping too much about. But you definitely get what you pay for with this thing. Keep it away from the kids, and don't bump into anything while you're holding it, and it should be fine.
finally ordered this detector - and sure enough the valve was leaking -
great for peace of mind
the detector needs a warmup phase (sensor needs to heat up) - where one has to hold down the button for a fairly long period -
which is tedious and also annoying as the alarm sound is on until sensor is ready -
also holding the button down the whole time gets old
but it works - and is reasonably priced

A waste of money. I bought one from a local RV supply store and took it back a week later. Kept getting gas leak readings as soon as I turned it on, even when I was miles away... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Amazon Customer
