Customer Questions & Answers

How do the LEDs function?

The timer works, but I don't understand the LEDs. I expect that the time I select would light the adjacent LED, but it only flashes for a fraction of a second every 15 seconds. Is that intentional?
Asked by: Anonymous
I bought a timer years ago. You push the time button and a green led turns on and stays on for the time you pushed. It works exactly the way most of the people on this review thought it should work. I thought I was buying the same switch because it looked exactly alike. The new switch just flashes when you push the time you want. The LED is blue. I thought I had wired something wrong until I read these reviews. Turns out the old fan timer is Pass & Seymour. So if you want your timer light not to flash but stay on buy the Pass & Seymour. The GE is just fine for me though I found it a nuisance at first because I didn't know the difference. So be aware of how different timer brands act and choose to your tastes. Just wish I knew the differences before I bought the second timer may have chosen differently.

Works for one minute and then is unresponsive

I successfully set up this timer in the upstairs bathroom, and now I'm trying to install one in the downstairs bathroom. After getting it all set up and switching the breaker back on the fan turned on for one minute (as expected). Then it turned off (as expected). But now none of the buttons on the switch will turn it back on again. Thinking it may have been a faulty switch, we exchanged it for a new one. The new one exhibits the same behavior. Any idea why this is happening?

Purchased 2 and they did the same. Came on for one minute, turned off, pushed all the buttons, nothing. they maybe made buy GE but had Home Depot name on them. Note last week sold for 19.95 1/27/16, this week 1/30/16 reduced to 9.95 looks like a clearance to me. Bottom line 2 and a half hours plus gas out of my life.

can this be installed for fan only? Using only +,_ and a ground wire?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. That's exactly what I used it for in a restroom.

On/Off override switch

Hi, I understand the timer funtion, select a time button and the lights stay on for that amount of time and then switch off. What my question is; when you push the large on/off button do the lights stay on indefinitely until the button is pushed again or does it just turn off the current timer setting. i.e. does the large button act as a normal light switch (on indefinitely / off indefinitely)
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the big switch does cause it to function the way you imagine. But in my experience the reliabillity of this switch is just not good enough to employ. Mine failed after working for a week.

In-Wall Digital Countdown Timer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 87.

In my experience, mechanical timers always broke after a short time, which was the situation that required me to find this product. I like the easy push-button action with the short LED affirmation light. It installed easily - just be aware grounding the device (i.e. connecting the device's green wire to the electrical supply bare-wire ground lead) is REQUIRED for the device to work at all, which should be no problem if your home is properly wired.

I have a black and white and green wire coming from my wall and a red, black and green wire coming from the timer. Hooked it up but the timer wouldn't shutoff after 10 minutes. I'm sure this is a good product but it may be I have two hot wires in the single pole box that I put the timer on to. Need to do more investigation. I hooked the red to the white wall wire and the black to the black wall wire and grounded the timer. Gotta find out which wall timer is the load.

Works on 2104 Panasonic Bath fan as should. Other one installed 1 year ago is on an older bath fan age 6 years maybe older, works as should. No problems with either. Timer only switch with no speed control, I didn't care.
