Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    I have the 59017 Mechanical. I set the pins and turned on in timer mode. It comes on at specified time, goes off after specified time, but then does not come on again the next night.

    I don't have repair for defective timer:
    If Load and Line wires are reversed, that could explain problem. Reverse timer red and timer black wires. Symptom of this problem: the clock dial stops rotating after tripper pin.

    Troubleshoot run-through:
    1) Use fingers and manually rotate timer dial several times and watch if Load turns ON-and-OFF
    This will tell you if load is operational, and pins are set correctly.
    2) Set slide switch to Timer.
    3) Make sure timer is wired correctly. This timer needs neutral wire to operate clock motor. Open following link to see illustration and read about wiring. Line and load wires must be correct.
    4) Check that wire nuts are attached very tight and there are no loose wires.

    I have installed a new adjustable thermostat unit (E1-BCANRT1W). Temp is set at 91 deg and I am using the timer. Two time periods are set and the switch is set to timer (not ON). The unit comes on at...

    Double check your slide switch.
    For timer: set switch to TIMER
    For thermostat: set switch to ON
    If slide switch does not operate, then Autocirc may be defective

    Laing (800) 554-6853

    1) Household AC wiring will not affect the timer.
    You can check your outlet using cheap circuit analyzer from home center.
    The clock rotates one direction and the pins push small lever down which turns motor on-off.
    When the OFF pins pass, the small lever snaps back and the motor turns ON.

    I cannot immediately find operation manual for the E-1 model.
    Typical ACT303 auto circ manual says following:

    2) If timer controlled operation is desired, set timer and move slide switch to TIMER:
    Manual says: tabs/pins are outward for ON times.
    Another sentence says UPWARD, so I don't know which way the pins are set for sure.
    So if you want timer ON for 2 hours, you would set 4 consecutive pins outward or upward.
    ON for 6 hours, set 12 consecutive pins outward or upward.
    If the timer turns ON in reverse of instructions, then set the pins that way.
    Autocirc does not make the timer, they buy timer modules from clock-makers like Grasslin, Intermatic, etc.

    3) To operate Autocir thermostatically without the timer, slide switch to ON position.
    The clock dial will continue rotating

    I want to reset the timer for hours of on-off for out water heater but can't figure out how to push the little white teeth in or out. Model is 265-1.

    1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:

    2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
    Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
    To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
    How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
    To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
    Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.

    1) There is no speed adjustment on timer clock motors.
    They are manufactured for 60 Hz, which is the controlling factor for motor speed.
    60 is the number of cycles per second that AC electricity oscillates, caused by a turbine spinning inside magnetic field at power plant. This speed is very constant, and so clock motors keep correct time for years or decades.

    2) A loose wire or loose circuit breaker could cause motor to lose power at times.
    Clock would appear to run slow.
    Check terminals. Make sure no insulation is sitting under the screw-down plate on timer terminals.
    Tighten wires very tight against copper wire.
    Move Hot wire to another circuit breaker and see if problem persists.
    Tighten screw on neutral wire on neutral busbar inside breaker box.

    3) Problem could also be bad clock motor for some reason.
    For $16 replace T100 series 125Volt clock motor

    4) Trippers contact a lever, make sure lever has bit of grease so trippers are not hanging on the lever. Off tripper moves lever one direction, ON tripper moves lever other direction.
    Double check operation of lever by moving override back and forth.
    Override should snap crisp and clean, and not be extraordinarily hard to move.

    I've set the time on/off and ive tried turning on manually but the lights wont turn on on exact time set. y? when i manually turn on the lights come on 2 hrs later or so, y doesnt it turn on right away?

    If I understand correctly, you have an Intermatic timer.
    The timer has a yellow dial that rotates around like a clock.

    Does the manual override work?
    If yes.
    a) then the circuit has electricity
    b) the lights are in working order

    Does the clock rotate?
    If yes
    a) then the timer is probably good
    b) the clock motor could be bad
    c) the gears could be rusty and dirty

    Do you have the current time set correctly?
    Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

    Do you have the trippers set on the correct time?
    There are ON trippers and OFF trippers
    Attach trippers to correct time
    Tripper pins wear out

    Suggestion: You sit in front of the timer and watch the trippers as they rotate to the bottom of the dial
    When the trippers get to the bottom, they push a lever that turns lights on and off.
    Look at the photo:

    Here's a website that sells tripper pins and clock motors for Intermatic timers.
    You can buy new trippers or clock motor

    Answer this post if you still can't figure out the problem, or need more help.

    Pump will run on manual setting but not automatic pins were put on

    If I understand correctly, this is a timer that has been in place for a while and is not a new installation?

    If timer has operated in the past, then the wiring can be eliminated as a suspect

    You say the manual override works correctly. That eliminates the question if timer has power.

    We have 2 suspects remaining:
    1) The general condition of the timer, whether the gears are rusty and dirty.
    Is the manual override snap over fully. Is manual override sluggish or crisp. The tripper pins have to move the same lever as the manual override, so if override is bad, the timer is bad.
    Turn off power
    Release mechanism using spring located top of box
    Tip out timer mechanism and look at gears for rust and dirt
    Does it look like the timer is too rusty for the trippers to click the on-off lever?
    Look at the back of timer for same problems.
    Spray a little WD-40
    You can buy a new timer of same type and swap insides without replacing whole box

    2) Clock motor
    Is the clock wheel turning as time passes? The clock wheel or dial must rotate for timer to work.
    You can replace the clock motor
    Take mechanism out as described above, clock motor is located on back and has identifying markings
    Order a new clock motor of same type:

    My Ge Mechanical Time Switch (Model number 15087) is losing time. Is there any way to adjust the timer so that it keeps correct time?

    There is no adjustment if timer clock is running slow.
    Timer clock motors run slow when the motor starts to fail.
    There are no replacement clock modules this timer.
    Buy a new timer at Home Depot, and swap out insides of timer using 1/4" hex nut driver, and then return defect timer in new box.
