So after killing the power to install some new switches today, an old GE toggle switch stopped manually switching the load. At first I thought I’d miswired something upstream, but the switch is connected to the line/neutral of the switch next to it (which isn’t one I was working on). My meter confirms the switch has 120v, and when it is putting out 1.2v whether it is on or not. Of course my warranty expired a week ago.
Any ideas? Does anyone know how to reset these things? I tried excluding it, to no avail. I deleted it in the IDE and it re-added fine.
I actually see the switch presses in the event log. But I can’t turn on the load either manually or via zwave.
I noticed the problem when I tried to do a zwave repair and the front switch failed… The switch worked fine yesterday.
