    I have found this problem to be fairly common with the grasslin clocks

    Is it a relay that welds shut?
    Or have you ever determined the cause?
    I usually install the Intermatic/Grasslin DTMV-40 or the newer one with the automatic voltage selection - can't remember the model number...
    Is there a better defrost timer on the market? I suppose I can go back to the 8045, 8145 Paragon mechanicals but they seize up a lot, burn out their contacts, etc. and are almost twice the price at times.

    I ran into this last week. These are the mechanical clocks with the small rockers around the outside of the dial. I had one defrost that wouldn't terminate, the rest were fine. Must be part of the rocker broken or worn.

    I like the paragon 8145 it's a workhorse. They all have problems but in my neck if the woods the grasslin clicks don't seem to hold up due to the salt in the air. The boards corrode out to quickly.
