The Brinks Model 42-1014 fails after a few weeks. The motor that turns the timer dial is not strong enought to trigger the on switch. I can move the dial by hand to turn it on and it does turn off but...


I agree.
I test timers.
Brinks timers are near lowest quality of all timer brands, yet all timer manufactures sell lower end products to meet price points. Brinks are probably made by one of the bigger brands.

Test your outlet with cheap circuit analyzer from box store to make sure that polarity of outlet is not reversed. Notice that Brinks timers, like most plug-in timers, have polarized plug.
Polarized plug has wide and narrow blades so they plug into outlet correctly.
Wide blade is for Neutral, and narrow blade is for Hot.
If outlet has polarity reversed, this will adversely affect timer motors, and other appliances.

My brinks 44-1020 digital timer was set up right and dose not work. i bought a new one and that one also dont work am i doing something wrong or is there a lil trick to it


1) I posted Brinks 44-1020 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Brinks-44-1020-manual.pdf
Folks can order Brinks manuals from hamptonproducts.com

2) Manual shows phone number for defects 800-562-5625

3) I test timers, and some arrive defective, and people occasionally tell fixya they got 3 bad timers in a row. I tell them buy different model: for example buy quality timers at Lowes and Home Depot

4) Timer manuals have more words than allowed for free answer, but I suggest you write out steps shown in manual. Most timers have same basic steps so once you know how one timer works, all other timers work same way. This will eliminate human error as possible cause.

5) Here is a list of common problems with timers:
If plug-in timer doesn't work
a) Check receptacle for power
b) Check lamp is turned ON
c) Check bulb is good.
d) Check tabs or pins are set
e) Check override switch pushed fully in position
f) Try timer in different plug and with different lamp
g) Test circuit with inexpensive circuit analyzer from hardware
h) Don't exceed maximum wattage
i) Programmable: check for overlapping programs, and conflicting days.
j) Programmable: write out programming steps
k) Outdoor with photo cell > test with black tape over photo eye
l) Turn photo eye away from light source
