Dunno if it adds any value, but I typed /knock sensor F3 in the bestlinks and this came up which may be of some help:

Resistance on all sensors actually gone up slightly, now it's about 4.98 MOhm, which I think shows that the original insulation already was beginning to conduct.

Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
