Reminder Alerts

ALERT SETTINGS – (SMART Models Only)

You can choose to have an Alert Reminder beep 5 seconds before the device will shut off the stove. Go to Alert Settings

Choose Select to toggle the audio alert between on and off. The factory default is Off.

The Intelligent model is customizable between 3 and 30 seconds.

Gas Sensors – (Gas iGuardStoves Only)

There is an Upper and Lower gas sensor. The lower is designed for pipe leaks. The Upper is designed for open unlit burners.   They are both designed to pick up DANGEROUS levels of unburned gas. The Upper MAY NOT pick up unburned gas before the 5 minute Auto Shut Off Timer times out if you have left the kitchen because it might not have reached dangerous levels.  It may smell bad but it’s not dangerous.

The Intelligent model will send out text alerts of gas alarms if configured to do so.

If the Upper Alert triggers and shuts off the gas valve you may Silence it or if you need to finish cooking you can use the Override to relight the burner. If it still smells a leak after 5 minutes it will again go into alert. If this continues shut off the stove and call a repair person to look at the stove.

The Lower Sensor is designed to pick up leaks from home piping or stove plumbing.  It’s a confined area and leaks should be picked up easily. Because these leaks are more serious there is NO Override option.  If the leak Alert goes off then CALL A GAS PLUMBER to come and check out your system.

Gas Sensor Management

Under the Gas Settings you will find the Zeroing feature as well as the ability to disable either of the Upper or Lower sensors.  Sometimes the sensors just might not work for your application.  These features will allow you to reset or establish a new clean air level or to simply disable the sensors.

What is the Zero Feature?

When you know FOR SURE there is NO GAS PRESENT you can use the Zero function which will tell the sensors that this is the new normal which should help to eliminate false alerts. Every kitchen is different and if you find the sensors do not work for your kitchen then you can disable either or both.

Before you press the Zero button be sure that there is NO GAS PRESENT.  When Zeroing the sensor it is telling the sensor that this is the normal level and that if you detect anything more than this level that it is ok to activate the Alert.

Disable The Sensors

Move down to either of the two sensors and then using the Select button you can toggle that sensor between On or Off.

Set Phase Switch

The iGuardStove controls the stove by turning the power on and off. There are 2 power phases that are controlled by the relays. One of the relays will also power the stoves clock. If the iGuardStove turns off the stove and the clock goes out then you need to choose the opposite phase found in this setting.

Your options will be either Phase A, Phase B or Both Phases.

Use Select to enter this area and after making your selection use the Back button to return to the Main Screen.

If you have a small 120 volt utility outlet on the stove and want that to go out as well then choose Both Phases. Keep in mind this setting will also cause the clock to go out.
