1) You performed correct troubleshoot steps down the line.
Last thing would be to install defect timer on another light circuit in house, and see if problem is the timer or wire going to coach lights.

2) EJ351C has 1 year limited warranty.
Buy new EJ351c and install single pole light switch until timer replacement is available.
Timer has easy 2-wire installation. Turn off power. Connect new timer just like old one was connected. Either timer black wire connects to either wire in switch box.

Hi,first you need to check if fuse has not been blown out.Because when POWER comes back after an outage there is a surge voltage flowing through electrical lines.It is advisable that when their is a POWER outage you have to turn off your FUSE box or SAFETY box to make sure that it won'tdamage appliances when POWER comes back>Technically when POWER SOURCE or SUPPLY has been shut off for a period of time.When POWER is back, expectantly there is an abnormal flow of current/line; current will not be as stable until a period of time..AC current behaves like a wave,values changes from time to time especially when POWER SOURCE has just been TURNED ON..So better turn off FUSE BOX when experiencing POWER OUTAGE so that when power comes back SURGE VOLTAGE wont flow within the circuit>Hope this helps..

My xbo was working last night and we had a power outage , then this morning when i check if any electronics r working , everything was fine but when i went turn on my xbox it is stuck on standby mode and...

It sounds like it may have had a power surge. Was it plugged into a power strip, or straight into the outlet? If it was in the outlet, or if the power strip is old, it may not have been protected and you could have fried some of the internal components. Also, did you have an ethernet cable plugged into it? My Xbox got fried a few years ago because of a power surge through my router. If the internal components are broken, the only reliable place to send it, in my opinion at least, is Microsoft's own repair site.

Freezers compresser will not kick on it trys reason:power outage tried un plugging all night still not working

Good day,
Good chance the compressor was damaged. First however, you can check the compressor starting components.
These components are clipped to the side of the compressor and are held on with a retainer clip.
First, unplug the machine, remove the retainer clip and pull the components off of the compressor.
The components are made up of the thermal overload protector, start relay and on most models a start run capacitor.
Take them to an appliance parts house. Most are more then willing to test them for you.
Take the complete model number with you.
If any test bad, replace. If they test O.K. then you will need the services of a qualified service tech to test the compressor.
If the parts test O.K. and the machine is under 5 years old, then call your dealer for a warranty service call, since the outage may or may not have been the cause of the problem. If it is a bad compressor, and no sign of storm damage is apparent, the warranty dealer would replace the compressor free of charge.

Trouble indicator came on after a power outage and

When was the last time the backup battery was checked? The trouble indicator could mean a weak or non-working battery. If the system is 12 years old, the battery should be changed.

This TV might have been affected by the power outage even if it was not ON at that moment. There is a standby voltage still present even when OFF and connected to the AC line.
There might be different failures on this TV:
1. The power supply might be defective after the power outage.
2. The main board could also be defective since the power supplies for today's TVs are not well regulated and once the voltage getting to the power supply increases, the standby voltage voltage will also increase damaging voltage sensitive components like the microprocessor or memory circuitry.

Let me know if you require further assistance.
