I have one of these GE switches in my garage. I also have a couple motion sensors controlling the this switch. It turns on if there is motion and turns off after 10 min.
I’ve had this switch replaced under warranty 4 different times in the past 2 years.
I have 120V at the outlet. The temperature ranges between 35F and 90F depending on the time of year. The switch seems to work fine for a few months(3-5mo) and then stops responding. It makes a “clicking” sound when activated like the relay inside is trying to close or is operating but nothing happens. When the switch fails, it is always in the ON position.
Resetting the switch using the reset procedure(3x UP / 3x DN) only resets the Zwave module and does nothing to the switch. Also removing power from the unit does nothing.
The company Jasco has no answers. I’ve sent them switches that have failed and they have no solution. My only thought is that the lights turn on/off probably 20 times a day so after a few months, the switch is shot based on duty cycle or something.
I have 6-8 other GE switches that I’ve had for 5-6 years with no issues. Its only the switch in the garage location.
Anyone else have experience with this or have any other ideas?
