Tips for a great answer:
You aren't supposed to leave the timer cocked for long
periods, probably because it could wear out the timer spring (similar to the
reason you aren't supposed to store the camera for long priods with the shutter
I thought that you set the timer by rotating the timer lever
90 degrees or more counter clockwise (when looking at the front of the camera).
The further you rotate the timer, the longer it will run. Moving the timer
lever exposes the start lever underneath the timer. Pulling the timer lever
counter clockwise (it starts out pointed straight up) will start the timer, and
putting the start lever back in it's original position will stop the timer.
Once the timer is stopped it is possible to take a picture by releasing the shutter normally, the timer can be restarted, or the timer can be reset for a longer time. After the timer is stopped it should be restarted and allowed to count down to zero before the camera is stored. I'm almost certain that the timer can only fire the camera if the shutter is already cocked, so it is safe to release the timer and let it run down any time that the camera is not cocked.
Good luck and do rate the solution if helped
