    Paragon 8145-10/20 (10-110 V 20-220 V) Every 6 hrs 45min is your starting point. Adjust hr's & Min for the application and area.

    Thank you for your response however, it sounds a little too generic for what I was looking for. I was looking for something a bit more specific seeings how it is an unusual time clock

    Don't recognize the #, but an LNGH with electric defrost would call for 60 minutes, terminating at 48 degrees, once every 24 hours.

    Hussmann LBN6.......

    As I recall, the LBN was a Gloversville case called the "Lowboy", hence the LB. The N stood for no front glass. They had standard Paragon (or Precision) clocks like the 8145-00 or 8141-00.

    The defrost heaters only defrost the upper gravity coil and often only one defrost per day is necessary, like Dave said. You want to make sure the heater limit and termination is working or you'll be replacing the element real soon.

    It is a low boy but it does have sliding glass doors, they are oriented horizontally and open from front to back, hoping the customer closes it all the way. There is an upper deck with electric heaters. The case is used for ice cream. The clock is mechanical clock but instead of 24 hour it is a 48 hour??. Just never seen a 48 hour clock. The face of the clocks dial has 24 hour increments. Does the clock run at half speed. I can get the clocks model # on Monday.

    Paragon makes a 48 hour timer, but it doesn't have a 24 hour face on it, that I know of. I've never seen it used in a defrost application.

    They also make 3,5 and 7 day timers.

    What's telling you that it's a 48 hour timer?

    Oh well, could be worse, could be a Precision....
