Maybe you can relocate it or figure out a way to keep the chair leg from hitting the button. Maybe make a cover out of that black punched steel https://www.google.com/search?q=blac...ml%3B310%3B280

It would allow fumes to still be detected but protect the button.
That is a good idea. Even just a U shaped rod would stop the chair leg from hitting it. It is located on the heater chase, just a bit in front of the refrigerator, on the passenger side. EVERY time you slide the kitchen table chair back, you need to be aware of it.

The sensor being down low is fine. It is the switch that sticks out that is the problem! One needs to worry about either breaking it off, or turning the propane off by accident. A refrigerator and freezer full of warm food is NOT good.

Melvin, I put a piece of plexiglass over the switch with 3/4 inch standoffs so it would be almost teenager proof. Had a hole for the push button switch.

My gas sensor keeps going off on this trip and I do not smell propane and my ultrasonic leak detector does not indicate a leak under the frig. I may take it apart and see why the sensor thinks it smells propane...maybe a new FireBoy-Zintex is in the near future!

Someone told me years ago to vacuum the sensor. It hasn't gone off once since then....still works when the cat goes past it and farts, it goes off and scares the cat!!!!
