gas sensor

hi I have put gas sensor in a vacuum chamber and tried to study its behavior
I was expecting the sensor to read low value but as the vacuum goes down the sensor shoots up to the maximum it reads max ADC value 1023
I tried with different MQ gas sensors also but all the sensors show the same behavior
when gas is not present the sensors should read low but it is reading max Why ?
can any one help out

gas sensor is electrochemical

gas sensor is electrochemical sensor, it measures concentration of a subject gas with a reference....it is not meant to measure volume of any gas...so gas sensor will obviously behave unexpectedly in vaccum
