It could be two things. One the timer needs to be replaced. or two, the amount of load on the timer exceeds its limit. Check the wattage of all the things this timer is controlling and compare it with the max wattage of the timer.

Fantech FD60EM electronic timer control makes a loud buzzing sound and does not operate the fan


This timer appears to be Leviton LTB60
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Timer has 1 year limited warranty, evidently from manufacturer.
If timer is making humming sound, then it is defective, possibly receiving undervoltage on the line, or wiring installed incorrectly.

Switch noisy timer with one of the other timers, and see if problem follows the timer, or is related to the specific location.
Otherwise replace with LTB60 from Amazon for $24.
Or buy Intermatic Ei200 timer, or replace non-electronic with spring-wound timer such as 60-minute Intermatic FD60, or 30-minute FD30, etc.

My Leviton 6260M is wired to a bath fan according to the diagram provided: Green wire connected to ground, White neutrals connected together, Black wire connected to 'line' feed wire, Blue wire connected...


Countdown timers are made to work with bath fans.
Leviton countdown timers are stout product with 1HP rating.

It sounds like timer is bad.
Wiring sounds good. Make sure you don't have Load and Line wires reversed. Try reversing Load-Line wires and see what happens.
Another thing that affects electronic timers is line noise/interference. If replacement timer does same thing, then noise is suspect. Try timer on another circuit without fan. Try another brand timer. Update to newer LTB60 Leviton timer. Use cheap circuit tester from home center to check outlet on same circuit.

My leviton countdown timer switch makes my bathroom exhaust fan rotate much more slowly than a regular switch. Why?


If this is a new installation, I believe you have a Leviton dimmer instead of a timer. For example, Leviton countdown timers like the 6260 and 6230 have times printed on face, while the similar-looking Leviton dimmer has no times.
Look at instruction sheet that came with product and make sure it says 'timer' and not incandescent 'dimmer'

If this installation worked before and suddenly stopped, then timer has gone bad.
Use circuit analyzer and check nearby outlet to make sure line is clean. Ground faults and circuit noise can adversely affect electronic timers.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have the unit wired and it does not wotk.I have black to black,red to red green to ground and white to white,any thoughts? Thank you


Electrician test wiring before connecting anything.
First of all, you don't mention what type of switch was replaced.

1) Leviton 6230 countdown timer is made to replace single-pole light switch only.
Single pole is where 1 switch controls the Load (light fan motor)

Your wiring sounds like 3-way switch.
3-way is where 2 switches control same Load.
For example a hallway usually has 3-way switches.

To confirm. If old switch has 1 dark screw, 2 brass screws, and 1 green screw, then that is 3-way switch. Use Leviton LTB15, LTB30, LTB60, LTB02, LTB12 countdown timer for 3-way.

2) If old switch has 2 brass screws and 1 green screw then that is single-pole switch.

3) If you are replacing single-pole switch, here are testing & wiring instructions for Leviton timer.
Remove device and separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not untwist wires that were twisted together before you started.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now you know Hot wire.
Test Hot wire to each of the other wires, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral. Timer white wire connects to Neutral wire.
If box does not contain Neutral wire, then timer white wire connects to bare ground.

Timer green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Timer red wire connects to wire going to Load.

If I want the TIMER 6230M to stay in ON position for longer than 30 minutes, how can I make it works like a toggle ON/OFF switch?


The Leviton 6230 is a countdown timer with maximum time of 30 minutes.
The other times are 15minutes, 5minutes and 3minutes.
The timer has a manual override.
Push the bottom button and the timer works like a switch.

Leviton also make the 6260 countdown ... with 10-20-30-60minute times.

My leviton timer is flashing on the 10 minute timer. What could be causing this?


Try turning off power to the timer for a few minutes, and then turn back on.

If an electronic countdown timer stops working, there are no repairs, and you need another one. Fortunately, inexpensive replacements are available at Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart.
Be sure to mark your wires, or take photo, before removing old timer so new wires connect without confusion.
