Hi - I have a new Lakota LQ. I was prepping it tonight for our first show this weekend. I wanted to make sure the furnace was working properly because it going to be very cold this weekend. After a few minutes, the smoke alarm went off. I opened the door and cleared the air and it went off. Shut the down and 10 minutes later it went off again. Any ideas why? I didn't think the smoke alarm should go off unless there was actual smoke, which there was not. The carbon detector did not go off - just the smoke alarm.

Probably because it is a new unit......oils on the metals from the mfg. process remain until burned off....usually only takes 5-10 minutes before it clears up. If it continues, take it back to dealer for inspection.
