My Model S8711older 15 Amp timer has E10894

My Model S8711 older 15 Amp timer has E10894 stamped on the back. When I attach a lamp to it and am gone for a few days, the timer is hot to the touch when I return. Is this an indication that I'm about to have a failure with this device? It is normally attached to a lamp with a 60 watt bulb.

Where is the model number on a vintage necchi sewing machine

Manufacturers put the numbers anywhere on the machine. Often, they can be found under the machine and may be a plate but often are numbers stamped into the metal. It may be on the metal base and could be hidden by the cabinet. However, if it is like some older Singers, there were no model numbers on the machines. The serial number actually signifies the model, ie N-6001-N-21000 is a Model 15.

Vintage Sewing Machines

You could also take the machine to a sewing repair shop. Some of the older shop technicians are probably more familiar with these machines.

How do i set my intermatic master control II model ed811

ED811 is older analog timer for turning table lamps on-off.
Copy following link for setting analog timers.
If dial does not rotate once each 24 hours, then timer motor has gone bad, replace with new analog timer.

I cannot put the two pieces of my received versadater stamp together and my stamp did not come with instructions....

I worked for a company that sold these stamps. Xstamper made some changes to this stamp & in doing so, the dater part would no longer attach to the received piece. Contact the company you purchased this from. Xstamper fixed our problem by going back to their older model so the two pieces would join together.

How do I move the pins to change times for the time switch. It is an older model and currently at minus 40 C we want to keep vehicles heated longer overnight.They are silver, fan shaped but I cannot change...

I'm not sure exactly what timer you have.
You posted under Intermatic 'all weather timer' which is plug-in type timer with red and green pins.

1) If your timer is plug-in-type and trippers will not move, then just plug heater into the wall and don't use timer at all.

2) If you have Intermatic hard-wire timer that does not plug in, then trippers are attached to metal dial.
Remove trippers with pair of pliers. Don't use trippers and flip manual override lever to ON.

3) When it gets warmer and you have time to discuss, add a comment with timer model number and I'll look for the information.

4) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

My model TN600CL lamp timer goes on fine and turns off at the times set but when it turns off at night in about 15 minutes or so it turns on again by itself. what gives?

If timer is older: The OFF tripper may be worn so it doesn't turn switch OFF completely ... and when tripper passes the switch, the switch pops out. Same thing happens with box-type electro-mechanical timers when tripper wears out.
Make sure trippers are pushed all the way in toward the center, and tripper is snapped on place.

If timer is new, and trippers are pushed all the way in, then timer sounds defective.
