Re: timer

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door located on the right side of the innards. The damper closes and opens depending on cooking mode. See the attached sample photo.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

Cook works microwave timer stuck

If by "manual timer" you are referring to a knob that you turn to set the cook time, then you may have a failure of the motor that turns the timing mechanism, or a lack of power to it.

INtermatic Model ST01 timer is to be used in a 3 way switch arrangement. The unit works in one switch position but fails to allow the light to turn on in the other switch position. Several other switches...

ST01C timer replaces one 3-way switch and the other 3-way switch remains.
The ST01C timer does not work exactly like a 3-way switch.
When the timer blue and red wires are connected together, they reverse whatever program is in effect.
When the timer is wired for single-pole, the red wire is capped off. When timer is wired for 3-way, the red wire is used to reverse the timer, thus causing the 3-way effect.
So if timer is ON, and red and blue wires are put together, the timer turns OFF.
That's why the remaining 3-way switch has to be rewired.
The remaining 3-way switch is rewired so it will connect and disconnect the red and blue wires, causing the timer to reverse program each time, and creating 3-way effect.
Other requirements of ST01C is that the black wire must connect to Hot wire, and the blue wire must always connect to Load. This means that you have to correctly pick which 3-way switch to replace, where the hot wire from breaker arrives.
Open following link for wiring diagram showing how to wire for 3-way:
All 3-way timers require rewiring second 3-way switch to create 3-way effect.

I don't have the Manuel to program a WESTEK TE22DHB timer. Can you locate one or tell me how to program it?

Many timers are sold under different brand names with different numbers.
For example Westek TE06WHB is same as Woods 59377

Sometimes different timers are packaged under same number, for example Utilitec TE06WHBL is shipped as the old Woods TD1300.

GE and Utilitec sell the same timer with different numbers.
Westinghouse and Stanley and Utilitec and Woods overlap.

I got manuals for some, and can sometimes cross reference if you describe the timer.

1) take a minute and add a comment with description of button layout with button names, or describe the dial and switches. Be as detailed as possible.

2) Look through timers on following links and see if your timer shows:

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

I have a Montgomery Ward "Household Microwave Oven, Model No. KSA-8200A, Manufactured April 1979." The analog timer has gone bad. How do I get a replacement timer?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

The Repair Clinic has parts for your Montgomery Wards Microwave but, they are NOT listed on the website. Call them with your model number and they can look it up: Make sure to tell them it is a mechanical clock timer.

  • 1-800-269-2609, 8 am to midnight ET, 7 days (Repair Clinic)

  • And...... if you can find a number on the actual timer assy other than the timer motor, there are still many of these mechanical timers out there deep in the parts supply shelves. I would bet your could still find this timer pretty close to home in a local Appliance repair shop.

    Just a note on older appliance parts (+25 years) .... sometimes the cost of replacement parts is far more than the unit cost new.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978

    Operating functions:
    To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer button to save the time.
    To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button again.
    When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
    This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer begins counting up.
