Bought MA-T530G-MH timer switch for bath exhaust,I installed it now the exhaust fan pulsates when fan is ON, when fan is off fan continues to stay ON but spins very slow


The manual states that on-and-off blinking of load indicates the load is less than minimum.
Minimum load draw is .3 amps and 40 watts.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Lutron-MA-T51-T53-timer-manual.pdf

Generally a bath fan is 1/6 Hp or 3 amps... exceeding the minimum.
Manual indicates that wiring error can also cause on-off blinking.
MA T530 replace single pole switch,,, and either wire from switch can connect to either brass screw on timer.
This timer will not replace 3-way switch.

Defective product is also possible/ call Lutron 800-523-9466 day or night

What is the intermatic e 1020 used for just moved into a house andits in the bathroom and makes a lot of noise.


The E1020 timer is reliable heavy-duty 24-hour on-off analog timer with replaceable trippers and manual override, rated 12 amps.
This timer replaces ordinary single-pole on-off switch.
Timer has extra white wire that connects to white neutral wires inside box to run timer mechanism, while mechanical single-pole switch does not need this wire.
I don't know what it is doing... maybe running the vent fan periodically, or turning on attic vent fan?
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#E1020
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html

For same timer, with less noise, install E1100-1200 aka the KM series in-wall analog timer. Or install digital in-wall timer, or replace timer with on-off switch.

I do not have an instruction manual for the Intermatic E1400WC timer switch and I can't figure out how to program the on/off times.


Intermatic makes heavy duty Ei400 series 1HP 120V or 240V countdown timer that can be wired for single-pole and 3-way.
Open following link to identify Ei400 timer and download manual:

Coundownt timers are used to control fans and lights that need to run certain length of time, and then turn off. For example bathroom fan or whole house attic fan

I have a paragon 8145-20 defrost timer. do you wire the compressor to the timer? I cant seem to find a wiring diagram on how to wire this correctly


Link below has wiring diagrams and wiring manuals for 240V 8145-20
http://waterheatertimer.org/Paragon-timers-and-manuals.html#defrost

I am not expert installing defrost timers.
According to information from Paragon, 8145 is for hot gas defrosting. 8140 series are time initiated, and pressure-or-temperature terminated.
Wiring diagram does not show compressor wired to timer.

The cycle works like this:
Timer is running but defrost is not switched ON.
Fan is ON.
Timer switches ON and activates defrost cycle.
Fan turns OFF. Hot gas valve turns ON for defrosting.
Cycle limit switch is temperature or pressure sensitive.
Cycle limit switch reaches trip point, timer switches OFF.
Hot gas valve turns OFF. Fan turns ON.
So fan is off during defrost cycle.
Hot gas valve turns ON when timer switches ON.
Timer is switched OFF by pressure-or-temperature limit switch.

I purchased the Legrand RT1 Time Switch to run a bathroom fan. It is installed and I see indicator lights. Every time I turn the fan on, it runs for a second and stops (hearing clicking in the switch);...


You connected red and white wires together.
No problem, nothing burned out, and it's simple to fix. Steps below.

RT1 is electronic countdown timer, and electronic timer clock inside needs separate circuit, just like your alarm clock needs to be plugged in. >> that's why timer has white wire. White wire completes circuit to timer clock.

Manual says:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-red-wire to Load (lights)
Timer-white-wire to Neutral.
Heres what to do
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push countdown button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

My house has a T1033A which controls the bathroom fans. There is no display and even when I turn the unit to the off position, I cannot switch the fans on. Is the unit shot? I can't determint which breaker...


Open following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Aube-timers.html

The reset button is small round button and can be pushed with toothpick or paper clip.
If reset doesn't restore timer, then timer is probably shot.
Also check all breakers to make sure one isn't tripped.
To test which breaker controls timer, open up box so you can test wires, and then use electrical tester and process of elimination to identify correct timer.
Add a comment and say if this is new installation or if timer suddenly stopped functioning.

I lost my Leviton 6230M 30 mins timer installation sheet.


Switch has 2 black wires. One black is hot wire. One black is wire going to fan. Turn off power. Remove wires from switch and separate. Turn power back on. Using ordinary tester, test each black wire to bare copper ground wire. Only one of the black wires will test hot. The other black wire goes to fan.
Timer black wire connects to black hot
Timer blue wire connects to black wire going to fan
Timer white wire connects to white neutral (in absence of white neutral, connect Timer white wire to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground wire

OLD wall timer Model E1020 ticks really loud


You probably can't get the existing mechanical timer to operate any quietier, since it's old and likely starting to wear out. You can either swap the timer out for a new automatic digital timer, or install a standard single pole switch in its' place.

I believe the code you refer to regarding the fan having to be wired onto a timer switch was a local requirement from many years ago.

Some local jurisdictions have impossed more stringent requirements, but frankly, having an exhaust fan is normally a good idea. If the fan is vented into the attic space, it can cause some serious problems in cold weather with condesation of the warm, moist exhaust air.

Building Code requires that bath fans be piped/vented to the outside of the house and not into the attic space.

There are newer preset timer switches that will turn on the exhaust fan for a fixed amount of time, based on which button you push. These are great as they will run the fan long enough to remove condensation from showers, etc.

If you're going to replace the timer, disconnect or turn off the breaker or power to the switch. Then simply install a new timer or switch by connecting the black supply wire to the bottom of the single pole switch, or to one of the black leads of the timer. Then connect the black wire going to the fan to the top screw on the single pole switch, or the other lead on the new timer. The white (neutral) wires should already be connected with a wire nut inside the box. Connect the ground wire to the ground wire in the box and if the switch box is metal, attach the ground wire to the box with a green grounding screw too.

You can now operate the fan with either a manual on/off switch or the new digital timer, whichever you chose to install.
