I couldn't find anything online regarding specifications for that unit, but that seems like an awfully long cycle! Asco has a nice manual download site. You may want to see if you can locate your machine here:

I need a night light timer that I can set to be on for 50 minutes and off for 10 minutes and repeat this every hour for 24 hours.


1) If you have programmable timer, then it would require 24 ON and 24 OFF settings, with down-to-the minute programming.
1 ON for each hour.
1 OFF for each hour.
Following link shows Grasslin 50-60 Hz 230Volt din rail timer with 50 memory slots. 16 amp at 230 volts
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/talento_371_372_371_mini_plus_data.pdf

2) If you have 24 hour mechanical timer with dial, it would need 24 ON trippers and 24 off trippers with down-to-the minute schedule.
No timer has that capability.

3) There is C8800 series cycle timer. 120-240Volt 60Hz for US market. 20 amp at 120volts, or 20 amp at 240Volt. Chose 1 hour cycle, then insert 100 trippers and leave 20 blank spaces.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/027-C8800-sprinkler-cycle-timer.pdf

4) There are percentage cycle timers.
For example CT2000. Rated 120Volts 60 Hz for US market.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/CT2000_sell-sheet-with-wiring.pdf
Select 1 hour cycle, and 16% or 84% percentage to choose ON or OFF

Timer that has a 20 minutes interval up to 1 hour


More information is needed.
For example, a) what voltage timer is needed, b) what Load are you controlling and c) how does timer mount?

Easiest solution is 60 minute repeat cycle timer.
Timer knobs are adjusted, or the timer dial rotates once per hour and 20 minute timing cycle repeats each hour. The cycle repeats 24-7-365.
If you want the cycle to operate certain hours of the day, another 24 hour timer can be installed in-line.

1) Tork 8600 cycle timer, or Tork ACT percent cycle timer

Timer has worked in the past as programed. However, upon resetting timer to correct time of day then setting "ON" & "OFF" porch light seems to come "ON" two hours...


I test timers.
Timers go bad.
EJ351 has 1 year limited warranty.
Wiring is correct or timer would not operate.
Bulb is good.

I would reset timer again and re-program.
If timer still will not function, then timer has gone bad.
Following page has manual:
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20indoor%20timers/in-wall%20timers/ej351c.aspx
Reset instructions: Move the control lever to the OFF-CLEAR position for about
20 seconds. The red indicator light will go off and any previous
time settings will be cleared from memory.

I have the same school bell timer, but the bell seems to run on 50 second minutes instead of 60 seconds!


If you have old timer, a new one is probably required, especially if it has gotten wet or dirty.
If you have electronic timer, then it has gone bad.

If you have new mechanical timer ... I wonder if you have a 50 cycle clock motor? Look at the label on timer and it should show the cycles.

Electricity is actually a wave, or a cycle. When the cycle is shortened, the motor runs faster. Occasionally, 60 cycle mechanical timers controlled by electronics also run fast by 1 hour each two weeks.

All appliances and timers and clocks and motors on the shelf are 60 cycle to match electric production in the US.

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes....


Relax, some people exagerate was all I was saying.
Anyhow, go to a good parts store and ask for a Supco EDT (Electronic Defrost Timer) replacement as they are more reliable and not much difference in price.

Light works - that's it! Just quit working.


All frost-free refrigerator-freezers have a thing in the system called a Defrost Timer. The thing is a little clock of sorts that tracks accumulated running time. Every 8 hours of run time the thing cycles through a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle is necessitated by the humidity that forms ice crystals on the freezing coils, if the frost is not eradicated it can build up to the point where no air flows over the coils to chill the inside of the box. The Defrost timer in all boxes fails eventually from old age. When that happens, the coils frost over until they become pretty much just a solid block of ice. Your case may however be the exception, as it seems likely that the timer quit during a defrost cycle. Most timers are located on the front of the machine, behind that removable grille under the door. The timer has a round hollow shaft through it, and can be turned with a screwdriver. If the compressor is not running, give the shaft a slow twist until a click is heard. The compressor should start. If it does, check the fridge in 12 hours to make sure it is not stopped again. Sometimes the nudge will make the timer run for a while. You will need to get a replacement timer. If that doesn't make it take off you should call a servicer.
