Question about Electronics - Others
The yellow timer wheel does not keep time. I can pull it towards me to set the time but it will not keep time on its own. So I have to manually turn the switch on and off. Is there a simple solution without having to replace the whole unit?
You need pull the interior out by pressing the clip on the top and pivoting it to release or removing the three small screws holding it in(depending on how old it is). I'm assuming it's an Intermatic brand by the yellow dial. The timer motor is bad. It will still run until it gets to the time clock trips, then it stops. It is held in by two small screws. The clock has a number in it for replacement. They run about $25. so it's cheaper than a whole clock, plus you dont have to change the whole thing. That's really all that can go bad on those. They are very dependable units.
