Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cheburashka Doesn't last. I expect better from General Electric.
Poorly made. I have one I installed a year ago. it has a date stamp of 2/15 and it's not 9/16. It has already failed. It stays in position and the fan never shuts off. I expect better quality from GE. I hope their jet turbines aren't made this poorly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hagster HIT OR MISS!
I had purchased two of these at the same time for our two upstairs bathrooms. One works perfect and the other gets stuck in different locations and leaves the fan on! These have been installed for at least 4 years.
Like everything else made in this world, made to break and throw away so you can buy a new one! So it's a Hit or Miss!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RacerTom Installation concern.
Removing the switch and installing the timer was simple and straightforward until it came to re-installing the switch plate. The timer came with two special short screws that have smaller heads so as to mount flush to the switch plate, letting the provided cover plate to set flush to the switch plate. The holes in the timer for the short screws were not threaded on both of the timers I bought. The short screws are not self threading, so I had to use a 6-32NC tap to thread the two holes. I wish these screws would have been longer; they are very short and hard handle, the holes I threaded are plenty deep and a longer screw would work. Once mounted the timers are working great and we love having them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bert Great for Bathroom Fans
I bought this timer for the bathroom fan as i felt i never kept it on long enough after showering to remove the moisture. This way I can set it and leave and allow the humidity to drop. It also does NOT require a Neutral Wire (compared to the digital timers) so there is less to mess around with in installation. It is a bit wide so it was hard to get in (as well as the screws to clamp down on the wire), so it took a bit longer than anticipated. quality seems good, but a bit pricey. Should help control humidity in bathroom

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Looks and works great
I like to let my exhaust fan run for 15 or 20 minutes after a shower the clear the moisture from the room. Unfortunately, I often forget to turn it off before leaving the house. Problem solved with this timer. In a 2 gang box I had separate, Decor style, switches for light and fan. I replaced the fan switch with this timer and the Decor 2 gang switch plate fits perfectly. This was a simple 2 wire installation with no clearance problems in the box. Set it and forget it, it's never skipped a beat in 9 months of use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WayneB Very delicate, easily broken during installation
I bought two of these at my local Home Depot - one for the bathroom heat lamps, one for the bathroom fan. The screws that secure the wires sink into plastic, so it is very easy to strip during installation. Once that happened, the timer could no longer be installed (garbage). Also, the ground wire tab broke off the switch when installing. The second one went in OK. I had previously installed 6 Intermatic timers in the bathrooms of my other houses with no trouble - I'm going back to the Intermatic timers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldretiredGuy Solid dependable unit
This is the third unit like this that I've bought from Home Depot. I have them in all of my bathrooms. They have a solid in their operation and work as they are advertised.
They come with both white and off white faceplates and knobs and are super easy to install. All and all they are a good quality unit that is reasonably priced that will give you years of no problem service. Even better, this one was on sale...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GP63 Exactly what I needed, but it did not work like I wanted
This timer appeared to be just the ticket to control a bathroom fan. It looked a little on the cheap side, but installed easily. Everything appeared to work as intended; however, I found out later that it will not turn the fan off. I will be returning to the store for either an exchange or a refund. I would not recommend based on my current experience, but would consider changing my mind if the replacement works as intended.
