Automatic gas shut off

What happens if the gas is left on

A gas detector and gas shut off valve is connected to the cooker.

When the gas is left on unlit and the gas in the room reaches 10% of the volume of the room, the detector will sound an alarm and alert the WATCH Lifeline Control Centre that there is gas present.

It will also shut off the gas supply to the cooker.

When the gas supply is turned off, it will not affect any other gas appliances - heating and hot water will still work.

Turning the gas supply back on

The WATCH Lifeline Control Centre will contact the responder to turn the gas supply to the cooker back on or will visit to reinstate if no responder available.
