Legrand Circuit Breaker Wiring

When fixya appears on 1st page of search for product, then either the product number is not right or product is older or product number is not exact.
What voltage are you using?
What is a Legrand 060-12?
What is a C2 Rcd?
What controls the auto function overnight... a timer?
Which timer...?
Probably a change in wiring at timer will work, but then the timer buttons might not have any affect for override on-off.
You could put in a DPDT bypass switch or bypass timer... that connects to incoming wires before the auto timer and then connects to wires after timer.

How do you wire the ecm 175 bypass timer
The power to the equipment that will be running goes onto terminals 2 & 3.
Come off terminal 1 to bypass the switch (such as a pressure switch).
Use the time setting from the old timer.
When equipment is turned on, the Icm allows power to go around the (pressure) switch for the set period of time. After the timer times out, power goes back to the pressure switch and by now the the pressure switch controls.

Maytag performa dryer quit working

Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.
