The power light flashes quickly and will light up and then go right back out. Thanks

    Will probably disassemble and assess damage
    first,check for DIY repair options...but will definitely keep that suggestion in mind.

    Thanks

Repair of the board may run up to $150...instead, search ebay for another unit (AS-IS) and use it for part swapping

Hey guys, the 15079 GE timer has 20 on/off settings. Are they for the whole week?


Eeeckles,

The timer you mention 15079 does has 20 on/off settings that can be set during a 1 week period that will then repeat each week. For example Setting 1 could be to come ON on Monday at 5:00pm and turn OFF Monday at 11:00pm while setting 2 could be to turn ON on MWF at 3:00pm and OFF MWF at 3:30pm.

You can find all of the UPDATE GE Timer manuals at the manufactures website: http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/timer-quick-start-guide.asp

Blessings!

My home air conditoning compresor doesn't always come on.


All timers are located on the main control board in the air handler " inside unit ". There is a circuit board in it near the heat strips and it has a couple of relays that are notorius for going out. Replace the board and the condenser unit " outside unit " should start to operate properly.

DVD Tray will not open


I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!
