I'm not clear on if you have been using the stove for 3 years or has it been in storage for three years.

Is it only the broiler sets off the CO2 detector or does the oven also set the alarm off?

If the unit was not used for 3 years then there may be so lint/dust or other debris blocking proper air flow.

You can reply with a few more details or questions for further assistance.

Sorry The range has been used for 3 years. It was installed brand new 3 years ago. The oven does NOT set of the CO detector. The broiler did this one time. ( I was using the broiler for an extended time...30 minutes.) So loads of flame. I know unburnt propane will create CO so I'm not too surprised. However what I'm concerned about is the "plasticy" smell when the broiler is going. Was I cooking off the coating (if there is one) on the inside of the oven because the flames were 3" inches not the 1" the manual says. I imagine there is a porcelin coating in the oven? Regardless is there anything that could be burnt and cause a poisoning of the food? Kindof like burning a teflon pan is supposed to be thrown out. Thanks for the help. Jason
