Make sure that there is the correct amount of power to the unit.
then you need to check the continuity on all the thermal limiters on the dryer replace the one that has no continuity

Switch moves into on position but not enough to energize line. I have to manually move switch 1/4 of an inch

1) If manual override lever does not manually click back and forth crisp and clean, then timer parts are bad or dirty: Turn off power, and blow out the timer, and then spray WD40. Replace timer.

2) If manual override works fine when moved manually, then trippers are probably worn and need replacement. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before the timer wears out. Replacing trippers and clock motor can keep timer working for decades.

I can't seem to get my outdoor Intermatic 7 day 7night timer to work. I've had it a couple of years and use it to turn on and off a water fountain. Hwlp!!

Timer is not identified
Some Intermatic outdoor timers have a battery located in back of timer.
Some have no battery.
Some timers are hardwired, and some are plug-in.
Some are 240V and can stop working if breaker trips off on one leg.
Check that timer has power. If timer plugs in, then try timer on another load and another outlet.
Some timers have trippers and dials, and others are programmable.
Some have no repair parts, others have repair parts.
If timer is programmable, then some have a reset button you can push and possibly restore functionality. Other timers are reset when you remove battery.

1) Add a comment and say what timer you have with description of dial or description of timer buttons. Be sure to open links below to help identify timer.

2) Also include in-focus photo of timer that you posted on Flickr for possible identification, and more help. Some timers have been discontinued, while others are replaced with same model.

3) Open following links to identify timer and/or troubleshoot timer problem, depending on what timer you have.

I set timer back from 9pm to 6pm to turn on. no lights activated the last two nights. Is there an on and off button hidden somewhere? ------Jim thanks

1) Use manual override to see if ST01C timer is functioning:
Push door that covers buttons -or- open door and push ON/OFF button ... timer should make audible clicking sound >> and lights will turn On and Off.

Look on LED screen ... left side of screen is small light-bulb icon ... when lights are ON, icon is black ... when Off, icon is outline

2) Review troubleshooting steps in Manual
a) You might be in Random MODE ... Press MODE button until AUTO appears (AUTO mode lets programs to run)
b) Battery can be too low to operate timer, even if BATT warning does not show on screen >> Change SR2 battery and re-set Time-Date (Time-Date disappears if battery is dead, but programming remains in timer forever until timer is reset)
c) Timer will skip conflicting programming ... For example ST01C has 40 programs ... if Program1 says ON at 7 and Off at 8 ... and Program2 says opposite .. timer will skip these programs
d) Timer will not work on circuit where load (lights, fan. motor) is farther than 100' from timer
e) Timer might not work with underground wiring
f) Circuit breaker clicked off > reset breaker
g) Timer may be carrying too much load: 960 Watts flourscent; 1440 Watts incandescent
h) Timer has 1 year limited warranty > things wear out
i) Circuit has loose wire >> check your connections > review wiring diagrams
j) Timer connected to three-way switch, and other switch has malfunctioned
k) Last resort: Reset timer and reprogram

We recently purchased a home with an intermatic model EJ500 timer. It does not work. Changed batteries - screen does not light up. Breaker checked and working. Nothing happens when press next/on/off and...

EJ500 has 1 year warranty. The reset button sits naturally lower than other buttons.

The manual shows troubleshooting.

If timer is blank: display bulb burned out; press next/on/off, other timer or switch has turned off power to EJ500.

Maybe a new timer is needed. ST01C (1 year) & EI600 (5 year warranty) each offer same 40-programs per week.

Timers shown above are battery operated, and cannot operate load farther than 100' from timer.

EI500 & GE 15086 offer 7 programs per week ... 7 on events and 7 off events.

I am quoting above because I really need help. "When I push any of the function buttons on the oven console (Timer, Bake, Broil, Clock) the display shows 0FF in red next to the clock.
