Diagnostic Questions

  1.  Has the timer ever worked? If yes, the timer has likely gone bad. Comparing the timer face to the ones below, identify which timer you have and call us at 1-800-536-9495 to order. If the timer has never worked properly, proceed to question number #2.
  2. Is the power on all the time? If yes, check out our solution to “The power is always on”. If the power is never on, and the timer can’t power the unit on, it is likely a bad timer. Review the photos under question #1 and identify which timer is yours. If the model is a new installation and less than a year old, it may still be under warranty. Please call us at 1-800-536-9495

Electrical Short

Did you recently experience an electrical short or surge? If5 so, there may be too much power on the same breaker switch or an electrical short within the home. Call us at 1-800-536-9495 for further information and troubleshooting.
