  • 1 Answer sells the timer switch for $10 plus $10.58 shipping and handling. I initially called Starbucks and they gave me the old " we don't sell parts but we will sell you a new one".

I just had the same problem. It's the knob itself. You have to extract the knob by pulling, gently, and squeezing it out. The plastic housing over the metal thing is cracked. I took some super glue and duct tape and wound it tightly around it and pushed it back it and it works.

    I had same problem - twice!! My coffeee grinder is a Dualit EL60, with the Faucigny Instrument type Mi3 timer.
    To set the timer, you turn knob clockwise - if you turn other way, it jams in the 'on' position. I found ron t6's info helpful; when I took machine apart, plastic housing was fine, but the timer switch was jammed. It does come apart with gentle encouragement from a small flat blade screwdiver ;-) It is quite fiddly to put it all back together, but possible!!
    Try not to lose the tiny flat piece of metal that falls out when you first take the timer knob out!!!
    The second time I repaired it (tonight) I took some pix which I intend to post on my website.

Gardena t14 manual swich button is stuck . Cannot program timer

There is no magic cure for plastic, battery-operated, digital, water timers that are exposed to weather.
Try spraying WD40 on the button.
Turn timer upside down and spray WD40 again so debris can work it's way out of timer button.
Keep a cover over timer, do not expose to direct hot sun, and do not expose to freezing water or inner plastic valves will break.
Buy another timer.

Copy following link for Gardena manuals:
Copy following link for various other water timers, Toro, Orbit, Melnor, Raindrip etc in no particular order.

96 olds achieva wont start unless daylight running lights come on when ignition switch is turn on

You may have a key that has a transponder hidden in the plastic key head. If the security light is on, that means that you DO have an antitheft feature that is not working properly and is most likely causing your problems. Take a look at this link, it explains the security issue and some symptoms. Along with some DO IT YOURSELF solutions.

We have installed GM40 time. which control shaft on / off cycle i.e 4 hours on / 2 off. i checked selector switch postion, i.e continuous on (upper position) and continuous off (lower position) in this...

I have GM40 timer sitting in front of me.
I cannot understand your question because I do not know what the 'control shaft' is.
If you mean the black-colored FM1 clock dial with captive trippers, then this dial is supposed to rotate continually as long as timer has power.

Grasslin/Intermatic GM40 page
The manual says quote:
With the manual switch in the middle position, the GM40 is in automatic mode and will switch at the programmed times. In the upper position "I", the load is permanently ON. In the lower position, "O", the load is permanently OFF. End quote.
In any switch position, the FM1 clock dial will continually rotate.

If your Load does not turn on-and-off according to the trippers set on FM1 clock dial, then 1) wiring is suspect or 2) if dip switches are not correctly set before applying voltage, and timer could be damaged.

The timer arrives with dip switches pre-set for 277Volts.

You can also manually rotate clock dial clockwise to observe when the load turns on-off.

Add a comment and give more information.
I would like to know what the 'control shaft' is, and what voltage you are using, and what dips switch setting you have, and which wires are connected to each terminal.

Combi 2 plus one, bought in 2006. i need a new timer element type HI7 made by faucigny instruments. Where can i get hold of one of these spare parts?

I think the MI7 timer is equivalent. The best prices are on ebay. You can also check in with appliance repair shops. Electra-Craft lists Dualit timers, but again, I am not sure if these are what you need:

I can't get my fridge to turn back on after defrosting it.

Check the defrost timer.

The defrost timer could have automatically cycled to the defrost mode which means it should come back on in 15-20 min. If it doesn't then the timer could be stuck in the defrost mode.
