Try resetting timer, and reprogramming.

The GE brand of electronic box timers is not dependable long-term product. The 30-40 amp contact ratings do not appear consistent with rest of timer quality. I think the amp load is overrated from what I have seen, compared with heavy duty timers like Intermatic GM40AVE series etc.
My local home depot has replaced the GE line of box timers with 100% reliable Intermatic T100 series mechanical timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15136
15136 is not battery-operated timer, and there are no repair parts.
15136 timer is rated outdoors, with temperature range -40F to +130F, which sounds like hardened electronics.
But often these cheaper electronic devices with plastic gears and multi-voltage are not hardened for years of dependable service as found with commercial grade timers.
Nor are they protected from surge caused by local power outage or nearby lightning strike.
For most dependable timer, and cost effective, choose T100 series or T170 series with skip-a-day... repair parts available... timer will last decades

How to ground a Tork EW103B time switch wired for 240Volt since there is no ground lug in the plastic housing or on the body of the timer itself


Many plastic timer enclosures do not have ground screw.
Simply join the ground wires inside wiring space using wire nut.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-Digital-timers-and-manuals.html#ew

Since the timer mechanism is plastic, it is non-conductive.
It's like using all-plastic electric drill. The drill does not have ground wire because the electrical components are housed completely in non-conductive plastic.

You can buy the Tork 9000A metal Nema3R enclosure if grounding is preferred. Or buy Intermatic 2T511GA metal Nema3R enclosure plus buy Tork IAP adapter to fit Intermatic enclosures.
Choose the metal enclosures when conduit needs to be supported and timer could be hit by some object.

The non-grounded box and non-grounded timer is also true of GE digital timers 15132 and 15136. Which coincidentally have same wiring as EW103 when using 240Volt.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15132-timer.html

However the Tork DTU40 timer has ground screw >>> but the timer is not grounded, so ground screw is merely for joining wires together.

Ge timer 15350 110 4 wires 4 post have 2 white on post 1 1 bk on post 2 0 wires on post 3 1 bk on post 4 2 grounds to the box pump will work manually timer will not work


Unknown if this is new installation, or existing install that stopped working.
Copy following link for wiring diagram showing GE 15350 timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

Look at terminal labels, should be L 1 X and 2
Power coming from breaker should be 120Volt Black Hot wire, and White neutral wire.
Cable going to Load should be Black and White.
White wires should be on terminal X
Black Hot should connect to terminals L and 1
Black to Load should connect to terminal 2

If your timer looks different, repost question with link to photo on flickr

If timer stopped working:
GE15350 timer is 120 volt timer made by Tork.
It uses P47 trippers, and Tork 101 clock motor.

No display stop working. it controls a fan lite, the lite is on in a dimmed mode, no fan function.


Question posted under Tork SS720 timer.
I don't have repair for defective timer that worked before and stopped working.
If this is new timer, then add a comment and explain wiring in exact detail, and include what you mean by 'dimmed' mode.

Timers have 1 year limited warranty.
Timers are affected by line noise, and generally cannot be connected to a dimmer.

SS720A timer is robust 120Volt single-pole 7-day programmable timer, rated for 15Amp up to 1 HP.
The larger the amp load, the shorter the lifespan for electrical devices.

Last step troubleshoot for programmable timer is to reset timer and reprogram.
Reset timer by pushing in reset button for several seconds.
If functionality is not restored, then timer has gone bad.

Tork SS720 is identical to GE15071 timer sold at Home Depot.
Buy another timer, and return defect in new package.

Timer runs constantly. Runs cycle then shuts off and shortly later restaRTS.


Posted under GE 15069 countdown timer.
Unknown if this is new timer that is wired wrong or if load has interference, or existing timer that stopped working.

If new timer, then check wiring: This timer is for single-pole application only and requires neutral wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15067
Then check for line interference by moving timer to different Load, for example ordinary incandescent light bulb.
Make sure slide switch is set to Timer.
Slide switch works as ordinary on-off switch, so see if slide switch works correctly.

If timer stopped working:
Feel timer if it is warm to touch indicating overload or internal timer short.
Timer is rated for 1/2 HP at 120Volts. Check nameplate on motor for HP.
Check for short in line by temporarily replacing timer with on-off switch, and check wire nut connections.
Move timer to different Load, for example ordinary incandescent light bulb.

If timer has gone bad, then return it to Home Depot and swap for different timer.
If load interference is problem, then buy mechanical spring-type countdown timer like Intermatic FD60

Hello! I have a 59017 timer, and this is my problem: When I put the timer in Timer option, If I have all the pins in off, the timer run ok, but if I put one Pin in On mode, The timer run ok but when find...


You don't say if this is new timer installation.
Or if timer was working before and suddenly stopped working.

I also own Woods 59017 timer from Home Depot.

1) New timer installation:
Open following link to access manual and read wiring instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59017

2) Old timer that stopped working:
If timer dial does not rotate, then the timer is broken, does not have power, or is wired wrong.
If timer stalls when it gets to a pin, then the clock motor has gotten weak, and is overheated and will stop working.

3) Buy new GE 15070 timer from Home Depot for $18
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070
4) Buy new Woods 59017 at Amazon for $11 plus shipping

GE Wall Oven Model # JKP07G0D2BG - The clock has quit working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


I assume the display for the clock/timer is now blank. If the oven is still working the only thing you are missing is the clock. If you can't do without it you will need a new clock.
Most of the time the clock/timer stops working it affects the operation of the oven, the oven won't work. If this is the case you will need a new timer unless you can do without the clock/timer. If so a repairman should be able to bypass the clock with ease so that the oven will operate without the clock/timer.

Have GE digital timer 15117. Can't figure out how to make the display show AM/PM so I can set it correctly. Clock hour/min just cycles through 12 hours without noting AM or PM setting. Can't program...


GE 15117 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

You might try a new AA battery.
Some guy wrote in this week and said he bought 6 timers and all the batteries were bad except 1.

Some timers, like Woods TD1300, and others have the 12 hour or 24 hour option.
You press and hold Time button to choose 12 hour or 24 hour
But GE 15117 manual says nothing about this option.

GE 15117 timer is same timer as Woods 59403
Several folks have written in past couple weeks about the Woods 59403 timer skipping over functions.
The best I can guess is your timer is malfunctioning like the other people's timers.

Woods 59403 manual is identical to GE manual, and says nothing about 12 hour 24 hour option either
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59403.pdf

I test timers for programming and wiring difficulties.
Yesterday 3 timers arrived here, and 1 didn't work.
I took it apart and tested the electronics, and something went bad.
When these timers don't work, you get your money back or throw them away.

GE dryer willl not stop, drys OK


I does sound like the timer has went out on your dryer, but there could be other problems as well.  Sometimes exccesive lint build-up can cause a heat transfer issue with the thermostats.  On GE models, anything o stop or delay heat transfer could cause the timer to stop working.  If im not mistaken, this is a gas dryer correct?  It could be a number of things that could stop the forward motion of the timer, primarily a stuck or inoperative thermostat, a defective flame sensor (highly doubtful if it dries), or a wiring problem.  Be sure to check out all your wiring, then if you wanted to, try and replace the thermostats.  Just dont want to see you waste a lot of money if it was a bad timer.

Microwave won't work; timer word stuck on screen


The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
