Leak Size Indicator
The digital leak size indicator remains off normally but once a leak is
detected, a number from 1-9 will be displayed for all combustible
regardless of the sensitivity setting.
The number will continue to increase or decrease depending on the
amount of combustible gas sensed. The maximum value will be
displayed once the leak source has been located.
Low Battery Indicator
Replace the 4 AA alkaline batteries when the red LED on the control
panel is lit. Follow battery installation Instructions under
Press the ON/OFF button once to turn
on and again to turn off
The detector automatically starts
heating the sensor. During the heating cycle, the
digital leak size indicator will flash
detector will sound a slow “beep”. Warm up is
usually less than 10 seconds.
The detector is ready to begin searching
for leaks when the flashing
stops and the green
sensitivity LED turns on. The audio “beep”
increases in frequency and probe LED begins to
Audio Mute Function
To silence or mute the audio beep and alarm signal, press the MUTE
button. To restore the audio sound, press the MUTE button again.
Note: a few seconds is required to restore the sound if the mute
button is pressed in rapid succession.
Adjusting Sensitivity Levels
The Leak Detector will default to the NORM sensitivity level automatically once the unit comes out of the warm up cycle and the
green LED will turn on.
To change sensitivity levels, press the SENS once for HI sensitivity (red LED will turn on) and again for LO sensitivity (yellow LED
will turn on).
Leak Test Vial
The leak detector comes with a Leak Test Vial that allows
the user to ensure the detector is performing properly. To
Remove the plastic seal cap on the Leak Detector Vial
by pulling it off (see Fig. 1)
Turn on the detector and allow the unit to complete
the warm up cycle.
Place the sensor close to the small hole in the top of
the Leak Test Vial. The beep rate should increase and
the Digital Leak Size Indicator should display a
number from 4-6 indicating that the sensor and
electronics are working properly.
NOTE: always remember to
replace plastic seal cap after
leak test is completed. Replace
Test Vial when the green
colour is no longer visible.
Remove screw located at rear end of unit
and pull down hinged battery door to open as shown. Always
insert all four batteries into the battery compartment in
the same direction. Note polarity mark on the inside of the
battery door for proper battery orientation.
Remove sensor by unscrewing sensor cover.
Install the new sensor by aligning the notch in sensor
socket with the raised tab on sensor socket holder. (see
Unscrew cover to replace sensor
Push straight on (do not twist) to
Do not force sensor into socket. Misalignment can
damage the sensor pins.
Ensure sensor is fully inserted for proper operation. The
detector will stay in warm-up mode and the on/off
switch will become inoperative if the sensor becomes
loose or is not fully inserted.
