Question about Paragon 7007-00 Electromechanical Indoor 7 Day Timer
Paragon 7007-00 is 120V 7-day timer with spring-wound carry-over for power outage. Indoor outdoor enclosure. Heavy duty terminals and industrial motor. Sounds like it should last many years. Exposure to heat, moisture, dirt might shorten lifespan.
1) Flip manual override. Does it work crisp? If loose or hard to move, then mechanical lever might be worn or dirty. Take timer free and inspect for dirt, rust, loose parts that might indicate if new timer is needed
2) While timer is free from housing, inspect gears. Are they clean?
-Use blower & after gears are clean, spray with WD 40
Note:WD 40 is extremely flammable, turn off power.
3) Pins on timer wheel make contact with lever ... they push lever on and off - add touch of white grease to metal pins where they come into contact with on-off lever. Inspect pins for rough spots that might catch on lever.
4) Clock motor might be bad
Found links showing Paragon 7000 series motor, so motors must be failing. Motor is attached to back of timer.
