My ml600tw timer is not working. The unit has power, but the timer will not turn.


If the clock dial is not rotating, the clock motor has gone bad.
Easiest solution is set power pack in override so lights are on, then plug power pack into cheap plug-in timer.
Some people report being able to disassemble clock motor and add vaseline to gears to restore functionality. Other peole report not remembering how all the tiny gears fit back together.
My experience is that once motors slow down and overheat, they never work correctly again.
There are no replacement clock motors for power packs.
