If your model number is in the Sharp R-1500 series, then that's a problem with the bottom door switch or its mount.

Programming to command other switches


Question is not clear.
Add a comment and say specifically what timer you have and what type of switch(es) you want to control, and add what voltage you are working with and what color wires you have.

You posted under Leviton 6230 30-minute countdown timer.
Generally, a countdown timer is not considered a programmable timer since the countdown program is already inside the timer.
With countdown timer, you push a button that turns circuit ON, and after countdown expires, the circuit turns OFF.

Countdown timer can easily switch a contactor ON, and then turn it off after countdown expires.

We have a fan 60 minute push button timer we purchased and installed with a 3-wire system. WE need to purchase another one but they all have 4 wires now. Where can we purchase a 3-wire one.


It sounds like you have mechanical push-button type timer.
I need more information to avoid guessing which timer is best for your situation.

I'm not sure what a 3-wire system is?
Add a comment
1) How many switches control same fan
2) What color wires inside box.

Is this
3) low-horsepower bathroom fan?
4) other fan, for example: higher horsepower attic fan, 3/4 horsepower industrial kitchen fan, or 1-horsepower whole house fan?
5) Is this your home or is fan for continual commercial use?

6) Is this a countdown timer that turns fan OFF automatically after 60 minutes?
7) Or what kind of timer are you looking for.

Open following link for list of home-use countdown timers and horsepower ratings of countdown timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html

Spring-wound timers do not require extra Neutral wire, and can control 1 HP whole-house fan.
The push-button timers each require Neutral wire to run electronics inside timer, and they range from 1/6 HP to 3/4 HP which will work for any bathroom fan.

What is the purpose of the countdown timer? Can you program for just 1 program setting for the full week? When setting program time is the manual on/off switch in the on or off position?


You posted under UPM programmable timers
Open following link to identify product and download manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-timers-and-manuals.html

Q1) Some UPM timers, and other brands, offer countdown feature in addition to regular programming.
So you choose between regular programming and countdown.
Countdown is for a bathroom fan for example.
Push the button and fan turns on for set amount of time.
After countdown is over, fan turns off automatically.

Q2) Yes all days of the week can be selected.
Set event 1 ON for all days.
Set event 1 OFF for all days.
Do not set more events unless you want more on-off events.

Q3) Switch position depends on model number.
Add a comment with model number to identify product and I will look at manual alongside you.
Or try the switch in different positions.

I am having a problem setting the UPM ETW350 timer, can't seem to have it go off at a certain time. What do I do about the countdown? IS that what I press to go to the time to shut it off?


You posted under UPM 350 programmable timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/UPM-timers-and-manuals.html

Manuals for all UPM timers are missing key explanations, despite the lengthy manual.
I think there are 3 things to look for:
1) Program1 is ON and program2 is OFF and program3 is ON etc.
2) When setting days, be sure that ON and OFF are set for same days so there are no conflicting programs.
3) Timer gives three modes: Countdown and Random and Programming. Countdown is for a bath fan when you want to turn on fan with push of button and have timer turn off fan automatically after the countdown expires. Do not use countdown or random functions when you want timer to perform ordinary on-off functions.

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.

Wiring. # 2 is neutral # 3 is hot in. # 1 will be hot out when 6&7close


http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Dayton-Off-Delay-Timer.html

You are correct.
#3 is Neutral from breaker
#2 is 120Volt Hot from breaker
#1 is Black wire to load
#6 and #7 are activated with a push button

When activation takes place, the timer turns on power to the load
The timer begins a countdown
The load cannot exceed 1 amp
Power to the load remains ON until the timer countdown is finished

If you have ordinary switch instead of a push button, then you turn on the switch, and timer countdown begins after you turn the switch off.

Alarm setting??


Try "playing" with the CountdownTimer feature: Setting the CountdownTimer 1. Press TIMER ON/OFF to enter timer setting mode. The red TIMER icon will flash on the display. 2. To select countdown time, use the TRK (SEARCH?TUNE) / buttons to select the correct time. Press and hold to fast forward or fast reverse countdown time. 3. Press TIMER ON/OFF again to activate the timer. The unit will beep twice to indicate countdown has started. The red TIMER icon will remain lit during countdown. 4. Press TIMER ON/OFF to turn timer off at any time or after it has sounded. good luck
