Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer
If I understand correctly, you have a box-type timer.
The brand of the timer could be Intermatic timer or another brand.
The timer has a dial
The timer dial is not keeping up with current time.
The timer functions correctly otherwise and turns the Load on-and-off.
There are a few reasons that can cause this.
1) The clock motor is bad, and needs to be replaced.
-Answer back with the brand and model of timer and we can look up a source for your specific voltage clock.
2) The gears are rusty and dirty
-Turn off power and lift mechanism out to inspect condition.
-The timer is bad and needs to be replaced.
-With some timer models, you can buy new timer and swap insides without changing box.
-Answer back with brand and model if you need help locating replacement.
3) There is a power interruption, for example a loose wire or bad breaker.
-If the clock is off by 3 hours exactly each time, then power interruption is NOT the best suspect.
-If the clock is off 3 hours this week and 1 hour next week, then electric problem is a better suspect.
-If the timer clock does not have power, it stops running
-If there is a loose wire at the timer then clock may stop now and then
-If there is a loose wire at the breaker or a loose wire somewhere between breaker and timer, then clock could run slow.
-If breaker is loose on the busbar, then there would be a burned smell inside the breaker box
Please answer back as you narrow down the cause. We will be glad to help more.
