    When my monitor starts up the LEL level is 9%. It easily fluctuates to 10% which sets the alarm off. It does this anyway, even in the fresh air !

    Any suggestions on how to recalibrate or reset or adjust this thing ?

    Is there an option to do a fresh air calibration on it, this purges all the sensors for a period of time (maybe 10 min)?

    It does that anyway when it first starts up, maybe a faulty LEL sensor ?

    After finding some instructions online, did a calibration in fresh air, seems to have done the trick. Tested it with low oxygen, CO, and LEL and it's working.

    Cool, what function do you use to start the calibration?

    Did you not have to put a password in to get to the cal stuff? Like a 3 digit number?

    I got my batteries from ebay. Also had to get a new charger from there. It's been running since early morning with no problems until a few minutes ago, now I'm getting a fan / pump warning ffs.

    My cal section is protected by a password... yours might be too Ojay. OT how long was yours been running? Battery life isn't spectacular really with them you know? I need some batteries and an O2 sensor for mine now I think about it, it's gathering dust at the moment.

    It's been running for 9 hours so far, that's including lots of alarm testing as well. Turned it off now because of the fan warning going off.
