Question about Hardware & Accessories

We have moved into a rental house and we have a exhaust fan that has a ME1020 timer on it. The on off switch works but the timer does not seem to make any difference no matter where you put it.

In most of the timers, the ac motor that is turning the shaft has not enough strength to turn it on, especially when it gets dirty or worn out.

The whole mechanical gear should be opened, cleaned, lubricated and so on, but it is not sure that it will manage turning.
Also check if the voltage is coming to the motor.

Wiring placement inside housing on ceiling fan


Is this a small fan around 120mm square, if so you need to ensure that the wiring is run in from the correct wiring inlet, there is usually a small spigot the wiring has to go round too, otherwise cover catches wiring. This is general on Xpelair, Vent Axia and GET fans.
If this doersnt help, let me know what the fan is, ie; model No

Hi, I am trying to install a Leviton time switch. in the wall box I have a single black, a single white and a copper wire. Here's how I plan to wire it up: wall switch black (hot) ...


The white wire is used to power electronics inside timer:

Single pole switch has two insulated wires.
Remove both insulated wires from switch.

Timer black connects to one of the insulated switch wires, or to Hot wire from breaker
Timer red connects to the other insulated switch wire, or to Load wire going to fan, light, motor.
Timer white connects to Neutral wire from breaker box. Neutrals are white wires that are twisted together and pushed to back of box.
If box does not have Neutral wires, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire.
Timer green connects to bare ground.

Turn power on, and check if timer is working. If timer is not working, then reverse timer black and timer red wires.
This wiring information has been tested and is accurate.
If timer does not function correctly with correct wiring, then move timer to another location to see if timer is defective, if timer does not work on specific Load, then noise or interference on line can be suspect. Also check ratings for timer and compare with Load ratings.

If you have countdown timer connected to whole house motor/fan, then horsepower rating is important consideration. If timer is rated 1/6 HP and whole house fan is 1/2 HP, then timer will not work.

My bathroom exhaust fan has a dial timer. Sometimes lately the fan does not come on for a couple of minutes after starting the dial timer. Is that likely to be a problem with the dial timer, or with the...


This could be the timer or the motor. The timer could be going out or not starting up in the right position. Has anyone worked or removed the timer knob, it could have been put on just a little off causing the switch to be off just a bit. Again the motor could be going out,such as the bearings inside. I would see what type of warranty is on this fan. I know these exhaust fans can get a little pricey, so I would see what warranty options I have.

Timer is wired correctly but not working


Could be bad timer motor. You can replace these easily. Be sure timer motor wires are on the same terminals that incomming line wires are connected to. You can find parts and info at www.intermatic.com

I am installing a intilitech 7 day in wall timer replacing an old mechanical 12 hr timer. The load is a 1/4hp 2 speed attic fan. The original wiring had hot in hot out of the timer. This has hot in, hot...


Utilitec does not make a 2 speed timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitech-LW60419.html

1) One possible option is a timer with NO and NC terminals like Intermatic-Grasslin FM1 series rated 1 HP. This example timer would have the motor running continually on either one speed or the other.
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/grasslin/fm1%20series%20time%20switches.ashx

2) Inside a 2-speed motor are two separate windings.
Windings are loops of copper wire that cause the fan motor to rotate.
For 2-speed, each winding has to be connected to a different 'switch.'
For example, like a ceiling fan. You pull the chain once, and electricity flows to one winding. Pull the chain again, and the switch sends electricity to another winding.

3) The following wiring diagram shows ordinary on-off timer connected to 2-speed switch: This is the basic plan for Broan Nutone 2-speed switch timer, which might be the product you are replacing
http://blog.airscapefans.com/wp-content/uploads//timer_option1_1-1024x768.jpg

4) Nutone makes a 2-speed whole house fan timer.

5) And open following Broan Nutone manual that show the two spped timer wiring

OLD wall timer Model E1020 ticks really loud


You probably can't get the existing mechanical timer to operate any quietier, since it's old and likely starting to wear out. You can either swap the timer out for a new automatic digital timer, or install a standard single pole switch in its' place.

I believe the code you refer to regarding the fan having to be wired onto a timer switch was a local requirement from many years ago.

Some local jurisdictions have impossed more stringent requirements, but frankly, having an exhaust fan is normally a good idea. If the fan is vented into the attic space, it can cause some serious problems in cold weather with condesation of the warm, moist exhaust air.

Building Code requires that bath fans be piped/vented to the outside of the house and not into the attic space.

There are newer preset timer switches that will turn on the exhaust fan for a fixed amount of time, based on which button you push. These are great as they will run the fan long enough to remove condensation from showers, etc.

If you're going to replace the timer, disconnect or turn off the breaker or power to the switch. Then simply install a new timer or switch by connecting the black supply wire to the bottom of the single pole switch, or to one of the black leads of the timer. Then connect the black wire going to the fan to the top screw on the single pole switch, or the other lead on the new timer. The white (neutral) wires should already be connected with a wire nut inside the box. Connect the ground wire to the ground wire in the box and if the switch box is metal, attach the ground wire to the box with a green grounding screw too.

You can now operate the fan with either a manual on/off switch or the new digital timer, whichever you chose to install.

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

Not sure what parts should be moving on new Fossil Me1020 watch.


I have a Fossil Twist ME1011, basically the same idea behind the one you have. What happens is there is a weighted third-circle that is in the back of the watch behind the battery (you can't see it) that spins a spring (the spring is the bottom seethrough part that ISN"T moving!) the spring then moved the UPPER seethrough part, which in turn spins the second hand!

IF the second hand stops working, carefully take the back off the watch and you'll see the weighted third-circle that I was talking about. It should spin, and in the middle there is a tiny flat head screw. The screw can get loose, so gently tighten it and the second hand should work again!
