Has anyone noticed, the Z-Wave repair blows the Jabsco (GE) Z-Wave switches. It’s very odd. I have 94 Z-Wave devices (all GE Outlets or Switches - minus a couple odds and ends). For the most part, the devices have worked pretty well for nearly three years (new house).
About a year ago, I installed two new GE Z-Wave outlets and kicked off a “Z-Wave Repair”. I noticed a device in my master bath “could not update route”. Upon inspection, the switch had the dreaded “blinking blue LED” and was fried. I bought another. A few months later, I kicked off another “Z-Wave Repair” and a switch which runs my under-counter lights “blew”. (All of these switches were working fine just prior to the repair). This one I sent to Jabsco and they replaced.
Today I just wrapped up a triple install in two spots (six switches - 2x Single, 2x Dimmer, 2x Fan). I kicked off a “Z-Wave Repair” to update the installs and now I lost a switch in my basement bathroom - immediately after the Z-Wave repair. Switch was working just fine 10 minutes prior.
Oddly, they only seem to be “Single Pole - non-Dimmer” switches that fail.
But I am curious - is there something resource intensive that “blows” switches during the Z-Wave Network Repair?
Edit: I have never lost a switch any other way…
