Will your timer work inside a cold garage though the winter?

Fixya doesn't make timers.
Honeywell makes the Aube Timer
Aube timers are a new product with a rechargeable battery.
Batteries are susceptible to cold temperatures just as you suspect

    Aube replied: The operation temperature of Aube battery-operated timer is normally 0 Celsius (32F) to 60 Celsius (140F). The Engineering department says that it should still be working below zero, even if they haven’t tested it at those temperatures. So we don’t know what effect it will have on the battery under cold temperature. The important is that the timer is inside and the humidity doesn't condense on the circuit. The display will gradually dim and react more slowly. It could even disappear. Best regards

I have a Mitsubishi wd-60735 TV. it is in an unheated garage. Will the cold winter temperatures damage anything? Do I need to bring it inside?


it used to be an issue from when older projection TV's were fluid cooled , but modern lcd projection tv (like this one) don't have any issues in cold weather other than it will take several minutes till picture comes into focus in extreme cold weather , but should not give any long lasting effects once its up at operating temps one thing though don't move it once its hot during cold weather or lamp light source will go out , one thing that will cause long term problems is if its subjected to high humidity (water) this causes all sort of corrosion problems in sets of all types

How do I keep my refrig/freezer from defrosting in the winter when store in the garage.


There is only one source of cold in many refrigerators. If yours is a top freezer, then most likely it is in the freezer.
But the thermostat that you set temperature with is in the refrigerator, not the freezer.
In the cold garages, what can happen is that the refrigerator stays cold enough that it does not call for cold. So the freezer does not get enough cold.
The freezer control works by diverting cold air into the freezer WHEN THE RERIGERATOR HAS TURNED ON THE COOLING. If it is not turned on, oh well.
The best you can do for this is to put both on max cold. Then the refrigerator will call for more cold at a lower temperature, and the freezer will get it more often and will divert more when it is cooling.
This can result in the refrigerator freezing things too. You can try raising the refrigerator setting JUST A LITTLE and see if both work, but keep freezer on max cool.
This works for my situation, but ambient temperature fluctuations in the garage make this dicey. We don't put things like lettuce in the refrigerator in the garage in the winter because freezing damages them.
Good Luck

It could be a problem depending on how cold your garage gets in the winter. Most refrigerators depend on the compressor turning on to cool the freezer section and that cold air is used to cool the refrigerator section. If your the temperature in your garage gets in the 30-40 degree range in the winter. The compressor may not turn on sufficiently since the refrigerator is typically around the 35-40 degree range. This will cause the freezer to warm up to the fridge temperature and your freezer items will defrost.

During the Winter: I have a garage door that will not close unless I stand inside and hold the button. The door closes but then reveres as if something is underneath it. this happens only in cold weather....


I'd guess that the lights that sensse that something is in the way are dirty or not aligned properly and the cold makes it worse. Also make sure to get some WD40 on the door track and wheels and then the chain on the opener if it's a chain type.

Is a kerosene heater good for working in my garage during the cold winter? Is it safe to breath?


Is it safe? That depends on what you are working on. Having a fire/heat source on the floor is a possibly of an explosion if you have gasoline fuel vapors.

For the most part it is safe, you will smell when you leave the garage, but as long as it is not a real air-tight garage you would be ok.

I run a propane heater in my garage during the winter to get away for a bit. I also have a well ventilated area and don't work on gasoline related items during the winter with that on.

Frigidaire Freezer Runs Warm in Cold Weather


hi there the problem you have is that the temp in the garage is to low, the fridge part of your fridge freezer has priority and will only activate the compressor when req'd ie. in cold weather the fridge may not need to switch on the compressor for days at a time this is when the freezer will defrost.
All you can try doing is having some very low heating in your garage in the cold weather

hope this is of help.
