Check circuit breaker.
Click fully off and then back on.
Check for burned smell at breaker or loose crackling sound that says breaker is bad.

Reset timer. Then Reprogram.
Possible geyser timer manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Digital-Geyser-Timer 24H-7-Day-Timer-230V Brochure.pdf

This timer has a non-replaceable internal rechargeable battery.
If battery has gone bad, then timer is defunct.

Use manual override button to turn timer ON-OFF.
Then test across terminals 3 and 4 for 240Volts.
Turn timer OFF, and test across terminals 4 and 5 for 240Volts
If no voltage shows then timer does not have output.

If test shows 80% undervoltage, that can cause load not to activate, depending on type of load.
Have electrician check for voltage issues at power company transformer.

Unknown what load timer is connected to.
Max load for this timer at 240 volts is 3680 watts, 16 amps.
Motor load is 230 volt 8 amps.
Check label on load for watt or amp rating.
Volts x amps = watts
Watts divided by volts = amps

The other terminals are NO NC and Com
Neutral does not connect to these... only Hot
Hot connects to Com... and then connect wire to geyser to the NO contact... general illustration on link above

Hello, I have a Maytag legacy series washing machine and recently it stopped working properly, first it tripped the breaker, then in regular washing mode it washes normally but skips spinning and water...


Sounds like a bad relay array, or timer module. The little motor that makes the selector move (and then trip the function switches inside the timer module) could have trouble moving the selector past a certain point. When the machine stops, press your ear up against the timer module. Do you hear the little timer motor running? Yes? then it's probably the timer module itself, not the timer motor. I say this because you can manually move the selector to activate the modes.

How to set a Kes load control timer model ISG1201


The Geyser Load Control Timer, ISG1201, is designed to prevent geyser from operating during the Eskom's designated weekly morning and evening peak times. The ISG1201 features 4 easily selectable, pre-programmed, geysers "ON" operating profiles to ensure maximum comfort whilst not burdening the user with the complicated process of having to program the unit.
The profiles are as follows;
  • Program (1) is always "ON"
  • Program (2) "ON" after sunset to accommodate solar geysers
  • Program (3) "OFF" all the time
  • Program (4) savings program - "ON" 6 hours weekdays and 12 hours weekend days

Had burst pipe, used geyser water to bath kid. Water supply now restored but geyser switch in box keeps on tripping... Help!


Use hair dryer and see if you can dry out parts.
Often, when electronics get wet, they cannot be repaired... like dropping cell phone in bucket of water.

I heard lots of clicking, smelt a vague burning smell, then machine stopped


IT SOUNDS LIKE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR,WIRING, OR TIMER. SOMETIMES THE TIMER MOTOR WILL START CLICKING AFTER IT GETS SOME AGE ON IT. IT IS UNUSUAL FOR THAT TO CAUSE YOUR PROBLEM. THE SLIGHT BURNING SMELL COULD BE THE MOTOR. IT MIGHT HAVE TRIPPED THE OVERLOAD ON THE MOTOR FROM GETTING TOO HOT. AFTER IT HAS COOLED AWHILE, THE OVERLOAD SHOULD RESET ITSELF. YOU MAY WANT TO ADVANCE THE TIMER TO SPIN AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN NOW.

SOME RETAILERS OFFER NO CHARGE ON THE SERVICE CALL IF YOU END UP BUYING A NEW REPLACEMENT APPLIANCE FROM THEM. ASK AROUND.

IF YOU GET THAT DEAL, IT'S TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO CALL FOR SERVICE. IF HE FIXES IT, YOU HAVE YOUR WASHER READY TO GO, IF NOT, AND YOU BUY A NEW ONE FROM THAT RETAILER, NO CHARGE FOR THE SERVICE CALL.
