IF IT GOES BACK UP WITHIN 5 SECONDS OF CLOSING IT IS THE DOWN LIMIT.

IF MORE THAN 30 SECONDS SEE BELOW.

Anytime a door opens and/or closes by itself I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Have Malibu ML300RTW Transformer...


Doesn't seem to me it could be the transformer/controller as it either puts out voltage and current or it doesn't. I can't think of any way it would selectively operate certain bulbs. You said wiring is fine, but you should check voltage at the end of the line to ensure it's getting close to 12 volts all the way down the wiring. If not, there may be a problem between transformer and misbehaving bulbs. Doesn't seem likely that 5 bulbs would go out a once, but that would be all that's left.

The on/off button quit working. I can't manually turn lights on/off. In wall timer ST01AC


Thank you for including timer model number.
You have almond-colored ST01AC timer that worked before and then stopped working.

The manual override no longer turns lights on-and-off.
Manual override works by pushing in timer door, and also by pushing on-off button on face of timer.
1) Try pushing on-off button directly instead of timer door, in case little plastic point on timer door has worn down. If timer door is worn down, maybe add a few layers of tape so door can push button again.

2) If timer on-off button is not working, then timer may be defective -or- timer CR2 battery needs to be replaced, and then timer reset and reprogrammed.

3) Defective timer: timer has 1 year limited warranty against workmanship defect
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service.aspx

4) Replace CR2 battery, reset timer, and reprogram timer and see if functionality is restored.
If timer is not restored, then timer is going bad.
Open following link for illustration of battery replacement, steps for resetting timer, and illustrated re-programming steps.

Pool timer turns filter on, then off as requested but 15 minutes later it turns itself back on again, as if the off was not complete. Do the metal dogs (on / off setters) wear out?


Yes that is what is happening.
The tripper is designed to wear down and preserve timer mechanism.

Your tripper is pushing lever part of the way over causing contacts to open.
After tripper passes, the lever goes back and contacts close.

Buy new trippers at Graigner:

Notice also that Grainger sells clock motors.
Clocks are also replaceable.
T104 uses WG1573 240V
T103 and T101 use WG1570 120V

Outdoor lights timer: Intermatic HB851 photo timer with dial. How do I set it for dusk ON then off in 8 hrs.


Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.
To set for ON at dusk, and off 8 hours later, rotate dial to the number 8.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk.
Timer set to 8 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 8 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on again.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 8 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 8 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until dawn.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

How do I get it to start at dusk and run for 4 hours


You posted under Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

To set for ON at dusk, and off 4 hours later, rotate dial to the number 4.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk because timer has photo eye.
Timer set to 4 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 4 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 4 hour countdown.
A car pulling in driveway can cause feedback.
If timer resets because of feedback, it begins 4 hour countdown again, so lights will not turn off until much later than planned, or not turn off until dusk.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

I set the timer for 6 hours, it went on at dusk but it blinks instead of staying on.


Two things can cause problem.
1) defective timer
2) feedback from nearby lights

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on again.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 6 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 6 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until much later, or at dawn.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

I baught a 3-outlet timer yardstake #15137. why does it blink on all settings except the on at all times?


Your yardstake timer has photo-eye that automatically turns lights on at dusk.
And then lights remain ON until set-time expires, or dawn arrives.
Timer automatically turns off at dawn, no matter which setting, unless timer dial set to ON
Photo-eye has to be turned away from outdoor lights or lights will blink.
That's because outdoor lights cause photo=eye to sense it's dawn, and timer turns OFF >>> a moment later photo-eye senses it's dark, and turns lights ON again.
Thus the timer turns ON-OFF.
Test this by putting black tape over photo-eye, or turning timer toward dark area. Timer should turn ON and follow set-time on dial.

Sectional Garage door won't open after wire coming off rollers - chain can't lift door. I had to take wire off to close as it had come unspun.


I WOULD SUGGEST CALLING IN A PRO.

REWINDING THE SPRING (DANGEROUS) AND FINDING OUT WHAT WENT WRONG IN THE FIRST PLACE (HARD TO DETERMINE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR).

Dryer knob sticks in one spot- won't move


 Door switch / Door switch actuator leverThe dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
