1 Answer

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.

I have a Kenmore electric model 86873100 dryer the cycle timer knob does not advance and will not shut off due to not being able to advance, what's the best course of action to remedy the issue ?

Well... Your model number appears to be off, a bit. It should start with something like, 110.86873100...

Is this problem occurring in Timed dry, sensor dry, or all modes?

Before buying a new timer, I'd first look at the resistor that feeds voltage back to the timer motor. Make sure it's not open. Also, check to make sure one of the wires didn't fall off of it or burn up.

Also, if this was a Kenmore made by GE, they have two coils in them. If one of the coils burns out, but not the other, the timer will not advance. You'll know it's this type if you have a big, round coil setup right behind your drum.

Good luck!

How do I reset time on the timer unit? approx 12hrs out!

You posted under Intermatic T100R (R for raintight) series timer.

Add a comment if you have different timer.

To set timer, lift and rotate dial clockwise until current time on dial lines up with silver pointer.
If dial is lagging or falling behind, then replace clock motor.

I have an Intermatic ET70115C timer for a school buzzer system. The problem is that the timer is automatically set to adjust for daylight saving time and those times of the year have changed in the past...

ET7015C manual:

This particular timer allows Holiday settings that override regular settings.
Do a word search of the PDF manual for 'holiday' and 'HLDY' and it takes you to the pages that talk about holiday. For example page 8 talks about the Holiday (HLDY) feature

My strategy is to replace the out-of-sync fall-back and spring-forward days with holidays ... and then the holidays can be programmed to meet the correct buzzer time.

Now let me say something. I am not an expert on this particular timer. I wire and test timers, but I do not own this timer. And the manual is a pretty good slog of information. I have not read the whole manual, but you can add a comment and I am here to assist as you go along. I answer questions for free and am glad to help.

geno_3245_40.jpgSee this image at Imgur:

The image on Fixya is too small to see the buttons clearly, but the timer lets you program up to 99 Holidays.
Fall-back is off by 14 days, and Spring-forward is off by 14 days, for a total of 28 days.
The manual says 'review and revise data' on page 12 thru 17

Replacing timer motor

T-104 has 240Volt clock motor
WH-40 water heater timer has same 240Volt clock motor
T-103 has 120Volt clock motor
T-101 has 120Volt clock motor

T-100 series 120Volt and 240Volt clock motors sell at Grainger for $16

See large image of clock motor on back of Intermatic timer

To replace clock motor you need 6-sided star-screwdriver from auto parts store or hardware
You may also need tweezers or magnetic screwdriver if tiny screws fall down behind timer when replacing

Order 120 or 240 volt clock motor
Turn off power to timer
Remove plastic cover over screw terminals
Take photo of wiring or make a drawing
Note exactly which terminals the clock wires connect to
Clock motor wires can connect to either terminal, there is not a plus or minus wire to clock
Loosen screws on front of timer to remove white-colored clock motor wires
Push the spring retainer located inside box at top ... this will release timer mechanism from box
Tip timer out and then lift up to release timer
Replace clock motor that is held by 2 screws
Keep clock wires away from other timer parts on back of timer
Snap timer back into box
Re-attach wires to terminals just like they were before
Tighten screws very tight against copper wires
Turn on power
Check that dial is rotating as time passes
