Furnace Problems

Turned the furnace on today in my 2011 22FB. Came on fine but after a few minutes smoke detector kicked on. Opened all window and got it shut off. After a few minutes went on again. This repeated for about 15 minutes. After shutting the furnace down I waited about an hour and restarted it. The smoke detector did not trip. Carbon monoxide detector never tripped.
If anyone else had a similar problem please let me know.

Mine did that the first time I fired it up, once it ran for a while it was fine.

We have not had that problem with ours. Your situation could be a result of some kind of deposit, like insect stuff, on the plenum of the furnace. Likely it's burned off now. You may try to have a look behind the cold inlet grill below the fridge to see what might be there. If you still have the warranty coverage, maybe the dealer would check for you.

Sounds like the first time start up.

ours went off with first heater start up, and still goes off everytime we use the stove, even just to boil water and even with the exhaust fan on. we leave a vent open a little and that seems to help, i also believe that since our SLX 184 has 6 inches less head roomthan other tt that may contribute to the problem

We had the same problem with a previous trailer. Every time we used the stove or oven the smoke detector would go off.

We found some bowl covers with elastic rims. They look like shower caps. Whenever we used the stove or oven we would cover the smoke detector with the bowl cover. Remove when finished cooking.

Solved the problem.

I used some industrial Velcro on ours and I could easily place it somewhere during cooking.
It wasn't a fight to get it back in place after. Now that our trailer is larger it's not as much an issue.

Ours goes off sometimes to let us know we have burned the toast. I guess it is a blessing and a curse. Seems we verify operation every time we cook.

Our solution is to open the sensor, it is very easy to get to on this rig. The plastic cover is a good idea that may be pressed into service.

When I answered, I made the assumption the OP had run all last season without a problem, and this spring the problem appeared. Good suggestions from all for remedies.

Mine set the smoke alarm off the first time also. Glad it was in the driveway during our packing and not some chilly morning at 3:00AM
