I made the foolish decision to try and “fix” one of my GE Z-Wave switches that was showing all zeros on the raw description. Unfortunately that process has spiraled out of control and I now have a switch that won’t pair. (Don’t ask why I thought this was a good idea to mess with, I’m kicking myself for it)
Raw description that the switch is showing: zw:L type:1101 mfr:0000 prod:0000 model:0000 ver:0.00 zwv:0.00 lib:00 cc:5E,56,86,72,5A,85,59,73,26,27,70,2C,2B,7A
I initially tried to just do a Z-wave replace to fix the raw description, but that didn’t work. I forget the exact order of operations here, but I’ve tried multiple times to pull the air gap, reset the breaker, perform a general exclusion, factory reset the switch, and it still won’t pair again.
Range shouldn’t be an issue - the switch is in the bedroom directly above the room where the hub is (additionally the whole house is sprinkled with other fully functioning Z-wave plus switches).
I’ve read a dozen other posts along the same lines as mine, but i’m really pulling my hair out trying to work with this temperamental thing!
