Question about Jasco 15079 SevenDay TwoOutlet Digital Timer

1 Answer

Owners Manual appears silent on two questions.

Would like to know what the operating temperature range is. Would like to use in unheated garage with temp range 10 deg F to 95 deg F. Also, by 'automate two appliances' does that mean the unit can separately program two appliances?

    Hi Gene,

  • Robert M Dec 08, 2012

    Thanks for the quick response. Based upon your input I've decided to go with a mechanical timer. Given my experience with starters in fluorescent light fixtures in the garage, I think the mechanical timer will do the job. I really appreciate your extensive reply. Have a great holiday season, Robert

    Mechanical is best choice. Not every digiral timer is rated for inductive loads, and will not work with ballasts. In some instances, fluorescent lights can cause interference with electronic devices on same circuit. Certainly electronics are changing quickly with advent of CFL bulbs, but load rating of timer should be viewed before connecting timer.

1) Question posted under Jasco GE timers.Timer is otherwise not identified as type, model or brand.Certainly this information shows on product manual.
2) Copy following link to help identify timer and download possible manual:http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html
3) Upward operational temperature for digital timers usually ranges 120-155 F. So this should not be issue in garage until global warming eliminates all electronic gadgets, batteries, and seriously affects electric transmission lines from power plant.
4) Downward operational temperature for digital timers vary widely by type and model number of timer.Some become unreliable at freezing. Some last 1 month in freezing. Some are rated to zero F. Some rated minus 10-40 F.
5) Smart plan is analog timer instead of digital timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#applianceThis type timer will operate on electric power, and not be affected by temperature fluctuations. However timing is not down-to-the-minute 7-day as with digital timers.Note appliance watt rating before buying timer.
6) Two-outlet plug-in timers are not 2-channel timers or 2 circuit.2-channel timer means that the timer can be programmed for two separate timing programs, with each timer program controlling separate load with separate schedule for each load.
7) Example 2-channel timer: Intermatic 1125 digital timer.Note operating temperature -40F to +155, making this especially hardened timer, with wide range timing applications excluding delay functions, But with 1 year limited warranty as is typical with most timers.

Can I use my freezer in an unheated garage?


No. There are units designed to operate in a garage. These units are pretty expensive. The drastic change in temperature tricks the sensing components. You have a good chance of loosing your food product in the unit. As a former service technician, if the call was for a unit in a garage, we would contact the customer, explain the situation and cancel the call.

Freezer in unheated/unairconditioned garage it stays cold in winter time but it is not freezing when the temperature is hot in the garage


The first thing is to find out if there is a fan that runs next to the compressor. If not then in the summer the machine is overheating and passing the heat up to the machine itself thawing or preventing the freezer from operation properly

What is the coldest recommended temperature a chest freezer can withstand in an unheated garage?


Hi there

It should have no problems down to -30 deg C or -20f

But it may sweat on the outside if it is damp and cold, which can cause corrosion of the casing.

Below the above temperatures the thermostat will not operate

Does ref-frezer have problems by being in the garage all year rou


Temperatures should not go below 40°F or hotter than 100°F for proper operation. If temperatures are lower than 40°F your thermostat may not allow the product to turn on based on colder than normal temperatures. The warmer the ambient temperature is (above 100°F) the more the product will run, and it will be less efficient.

Can this refrigerator be used in an unheated garage?


Yes, You can use most any refrigerator in an unheated area. Just be aware that if it is in a below freezing area for a long period of time that the cold may penetrate enough to get the refrigerator temperatures below freezing also.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
