Arduiono uno + Snap4arduino+Grove kit

Hi
Am new to this form. I would like some help if anyone can give advice. I am using snap4arduino along with an arduino uno and a grove kit/shield. I have a Mq9 sensor for detection gas and I want an led light to turn on whenever there is gas present. It is basically a simple gas alarm.
I tried to get the light to come on when I exposed gas to the sensor but nothing happened. I cannot see where I am going wrong....I noticed that the sensor got very hot when i hooked it all up....and I read that temperature can affect performance but I do not know how to proceed.
I would appreciate any help/advice that good be given.
Thank you
Michael

this is the first I have head about programming an Arduino (or anything) with snap

read how to use this forum and #7 about posting code.
then post your code.
also, make a simple hand schematic and post that.

read the data sheet on the expected temperature of the sensor.
they do use a lot of power, so heat might be expected.

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.

Please read the first post in any forum entitled how to use this forum.
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,148850.0.html then look down to item #7 about how to post your code.
It will be formatted in a scrolling window that makes it easier to read.

Thanks.. Tom.. :slight_smile:
