Question about Woods 60 Minute Spring Wound Timer in White (59717)
My idea is that my customers will come in, crank it to 60 minutes, like a sauna timer and I get the satisfaction of knowing the heat isn't left on all night. I haven't had much luck locating a 24 volt timer that will work, but a local sales guy told me that I can just use a regular 110 timer, like the Woods 59717 for example, or something similar. Is that true, or do you know where I could find an appropriate timer.
1) Yes a spring-wound timer will work.
Woods 59717, Intermatic FD60, etc
There are other models depending on length of time, and color of timer
2) How to wire to 24 volts
24 volt circuit has 2 wires going to load.
Cut one of the wires and then connect cut wire to timer.
3) Buy Woods 59717 or Intermatic FD60 timers at Amazon.com in home improvement.
Both products have 1 year warranty, and both are strong companies.
Spring-wound timers last many years, and set-times are approximate.

SOURCE: switch not ticking after setting
Spring wound countdown timers turn on the load after dial is turned.
If your timer is not counting down, and turn knob is not rotating back to the start position, then timer is no good.
This timer counts down even if it's not connected to electricity, so the problem is not wiring.
