You posted under Intermatic raintight timer.
Add a comment with your model and brand and I have extensive files on timers.

The best diagnostic is the manual override.
1) Click manual override and see if Load (lights, fan, motor) come on.
If manual override clicks on-and-off crisp and clean, but the lights do not come on, check your electric power.
If the manual override does not click crisp and clean, then the timer may be rusty, or timer may need to be replaced. Buy replacement timer and swap out timer mechanisms without changing the box.
If the manual override works fine, and Load turns on-and-off with manual override, then the clock or trippers are next suspect.

2) Check if the dial is turning as time passes.
If the dial is not turning, then the clock motor is bad and you can buy a new clock motor.
If dial is turning, and manual override turns Load on-and-off, then the tripper pins might be worn out, and you can buy new trippers.

3) To buy replacement parts: Timer door has model number of timer. Timer clock located on back of timer mechanism has identifying numbers. You can snap out the timer mechanism using metal spring locate top inside box.

If the timer does not keep the time of day then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Timers have adjustable tabs to turn the timer on and off at a set times of day.

T104R3 Timer moving but automatic turn no longer works I mistakenly released the pointer metal (should not do that) and reattached it, probably pointing to different time. the clock is working, but...


Replace trippers.
If timer dial is rotating and keeps good time, and manual override turns load on-and-off, then replace the trippers.

Stationary pointer points at 6:00 and moving it does not affect timer function.
The pointer is reference point for setting current time.

Have a GE tfx28ppdabb and the frig side gets hot, defrosted the freezer but the problem comes back after a week


Is it an automatic self defrosting unit? If so, defrosting the freezer will cure your problem temporarily. When the defrost timer fails to defrost automatically, ice builds up again and plugs the chute between the freezer and the fridge and the fridge gets hot.....If this action is repeatable,(meaning you can manually defrost but it only lasts a few days) then for some reason, the automatic defrost timer is not working. It's either the timer itself or one of the fuses.....there is always the chance that the thermostat, which tells the timer when to turn on and off, is also defective, but most of the time, the defrost timer is the culprit. Check the fuses first, then the defrost timer.

If manual override works, and dial rotates on time each 24-hours, then worn trippers are suspect.

How can i set the on and off of my legrand timer switch


You posted under GE timer, but say you have Legrand, and don't include the model number or type of Legrand timer.

1) The only Legrand timer I have in my files is the RT1 countdown timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Countdown-timer-horsepower-ratings.html#RT1
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/RT1-timer.jpg
To set RT1, you push one of the buttons, and fan-or-light turns on for a duration of time, then automatically turns off. Use the large button as ordinary light switch.

2) Legrand also makes commercial line of timers, including din rail timers and pin-type timers
http://www.legrandcommercial.com/control_timers.htm

3) If this is not your timer, add a comment and include in-focus photo of your timer for possible identification.

I have set program 1 on and off times and program 2 on and off times but do not know what mode to choose to get it to work!!


People are writing in with problems about HB88RC.
Problems seem to revolve around MODE button and setting automatic for timer to operate programming.

One guy said his timer skipped over automatic.
Another fellow today reported that timer programs would not work.

So maybe your timer has similar problem.
I'm going to e-mail Intermatic with recent information.
I need clarification on your exact question.
Intermatic generally e-mails back and is concerned with their products and customers.

That being said, let's look at your timer problem.
When you finish programming 1 and 2, press Clock button to exit programming and current time shows on display.
At this point, timer should function.

According to manual:
If you press MODE button once, timer will enter override, and lights will turn on.
Press MODE button again, RDM shows on screen and timer enters random mode and lights turn on-off randomly so it looks like folks are home.
Press MODE again and timer returns to Automatic and programs 1 and 2 should run.

Add a comment and let me know what is happening so I can report to Intermatic.
I will post results on this thread.

The timer on my dryer isn't working properly


HI. the timer motor is damaged at this point. The Auto sector is dead. This is not a serviceable part, and you will need to replace the entire timer mechanism to correct this issue.

I moved the time pinter by accident. now the timer


Did you mix up the pointers? One of them is for off and one for on. Dont know any other reason. If the timer is working all the pointers do is manually trip the lever as it comes past. On and Off should be stamped on the pointer.
