Gas detector

By leaning against the stove, I inadvertently turned a burner ON, but didn't know it. We left for an hour or so - this was before we had Cooper, thankfully. When we returned, there was a very strong smell. But the alarm never went off. We opened all the windows, etc. found the source. How can an alarm be tested? Pushing the button only completes a circuit. It doesn't TEST the alarm.

I take a butane lighter, light it, keep holding down the flame button and blow the flame out. You are now getting butane out of the lighter. Hold it near the alarm. Works every time for me.
