The gas turned off when the temperature is detectd by a thermal sensor. The timer is not working therefore the motor keeps running until you turned it off. The timer need to be replaced.

Timer starts and stops whithin 3 seconds, how do I adjust the run time to operate as normal?


Most likely the timer has suffer failure, for example the small gears wear out, or motor begins to slow down and then motor overheats causing motor failure.
Might try resetting the timer by turning Frequency Knob to Reset, and then reprogram:
Copy following link for more recent timer manuals that may not apply to older timer:

I cant get the older (10 yrs) timer out to see if my junction box will hold a newer digital model. I tried to pull the knob out but it doesnt budge. There doesnt seem to be a set screw.


If following information does not apply, then add a comment with in-focus photo of timer posted on flickr, for possible help.
All timers are attached to electrical box with 2 screws that are usually hidden by a cover plate.
Some really old timers have a set screw on the knob itself.
Most 'knob' timers fit onto a shaft by friction. Put a pry bar under it and force it off.
If timer is attached to cover plate, see if you can break the cover plate.

I have an Darlac Electronic water timer DW253 but haver mislaid the instructions, where can I download a set?


I cannot find a manual for the Darlac DW253.
It appears the timer is set by moving each selector knob.

Knob on right is Run Time:
This is how many minutes timer will run each time.
Set run time from 1 minute to 120 minutes.
Knob on right also has ON-OFF override.

Knob on left is Frequency:
This is how frequently the timer will turn ON. Once per hour, once per each 2 hours ... once per 24 hours ... once per 72 hour ... once per week.

So set frequency to 48 and set run time to 20, then every 48 hours the water will turn on for 20 minutes.
To turn timer off, move right knob to OFF.
For continuous watering, turn same knob to ON.

This timer is battery-powered, probably 9 Volt, but maybe AA.
Battery carriage appears to be located on front below the function knobs.
Typically, water timer batteries last one season.

Timer can be connected to household spigot, or connected to any passive water supply for example rain barrel or tank.
Appears to have standard female hose thread on top, or possibly 1/2 pipe thread, and quick connection on bottom.

Plastic water timer exposed to freezing temperatures can crack. Drain water out of timer during cold weather.
Generally if water timer stops working: replace battery, clean battery terminals, and if functionality is not restored, then buy another timer.

Add a comment to fill out the missing details.

Fridge is 14 yrs old but in good condition. Several new timers have been installed and the defrost term. unit checks out ok, but the timers will not operate consistently. Model #970-450020.


I would say the new defrost timers are just made too cheaply. The old ones would seem to run for years on end. Maybe whoever installed the timers are just buying the "generic" cheapos?

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

Washer control knob just spins


The knob is prob stripped, very common for this washer.
Get it off and look at the teeth. To remove the knob you need a pair of surgical pliers. Reach behind the knob and yank the retaining clip out. If the teeth are smooth you need to replace the knob. Oil the timer so it will be easier to turn by the way. To put the new knob you simply slide it in place with the clip on it. So easy you won't believe it.
