Hi,
I installed this timer to operate this fan: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Progress-Lighting-50-CFM-Ceiling-or-Wall-Exhaust-Fan-PV001-30/202639871#.
The speed of the fan has decreased. Is that normal? Are these products compatible?
Thanks for your response.

Answer: 
No. This 6161T won't work with any fan, nor any motor. It's for incandescent lights only. Leviton LTB60-1LZ 1800watt will work with fans. But it seems HD doesn't carry it.

Answer: 
It should be ok. We have 3 of these same Leviton timmer switxhes, one for an 80 cfm exhaust fan, one for a 90 cfm and one for a 110 cfm exhaust fan and all work great. Just be sure you have it wired properly. I called Leviton for our one fan that was a 3 way switch and they explained the correct wiring.

Answer: 
The leviton 6161t is not compatible with fans (or cfls). It is an obsolete product that should be completely discontinued. The reason your fan speed decreased is because this timer doesn't provide the full voltage and amperage that the fan needs to run properly.

Hi rmailmenot, Unfortunately this timer should not be used for any appliance other than incandescent light fixtures. I too, tried it on my bathroom fan and it would not work at all.

Answer: 
I would guess not. I installed one to control the exhaust fan in my bathroom, & the fan speed slowed considerably compared to running it with just an on/off switch.
I returned it & purchased an Intermatic E1210W Timer on eBay for about the same price. It works well & does not decrease my fan speed.

Answer: 
Good day,
The 6161T is not rated for motor loads, which is why the speed on your fan has decreased. You need to purchase a timer that is rated to control motor loads.

Answer: 
Because that's the correct model for motors. The Leviton timer in stock at the store will not work for bathroom fans. Instead, look at the Defiant 49816 timer, which is rated for up to a .25 hp motor. It's the same price as the Leviton and should always be in stock.

The 6161t timer switch is an obsolete product that will not provide the full power needed to exhaust fans, nor will it run CFLs. Don't buy this garbage, save yourself and whoever buys your house next a bunch of trouble.

Answer: 
Good day,
The 6161T countdown timer is only rated for 500W incandescent. If your application calls for under 500W of incandescent bulbs, then you can use this timer. If you are also controlling the exhaust fan, then you need to use the LTB60-1LZ instead of the 6161T.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have one of this switch installed by the builder of my condo bath room which controls the bath room fan. However I found the fan can never stop because the last button was set up as NEVER STOP but only at a lower speed for the fan motor. How can I have one more choice(button) to have both NEVER STOP after minutes timer, and also there is a manually choice to stop the fan especially at night time. You know it is noisy at night. At daytime I am okay to have the fan run all the time.

Thank you very much in advance!

Victor

Answer: 
The button on the bottom simply turns off the fan or what ever you have hooked up to this switch! For example, if you have a higher timmer setting than you need, before you leave, just simply press the bottom button to shut it off!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It doesn't work, I'm returning it tomorrow. It doesn't work, only one 20 minute light goes on and it doesn't shut off. September 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not for fans This switch does not have a neutral wire to handle a motor load of a bathroom fan. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fan Timer Basic electrical installation, looks great with the decora style switches. Easy use with automatic shut-off after 10, 20 30 or 60 minutes of operation. July 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good buy I felt it was a little pricey, but looks nice and works well. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leviton 500W 60 Minute switch timer Easy install, I like as the time winds down the lights on the switch move down and blink during the last minute. May 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Meh. Worked but the infamous buzz... As others have reported, this thing created a buzz. In my case, it was in the fan itself- you could hear that the fan motor wasn't working quite as well (the sound of the air rushing was weaker, so it wasn't drawing as much air through) and the motor also had a buzzing sound. The *only* thing that was different was this timer switch, which replaced a standard single-pole switch. When I took the timer off and installed a single-pole Decora style switch (new switch), the buzzing went away. Poor quality, poor value, steer clear. After I had this problem I did some Googling and it looks like this thing also creates a voltage drop, which isn't going to be great for the fan motor, either. February 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by And the answer is: Buzzzzzzz. As many other reviewers have noted... I got a buzz from this timer switch. I was replacing a standard single pole switch in my master bathroom. I installed the timer switch and turned it on and... buzzz. In my case, the switch didn't buzz very much, but the fan motor itself was buzzing; you could also hear that it wasn't moving as much air (with the regular switch, you can hear the "whoosh" of the air rushing into the vent). So not only does it make the motor buzz, but it also doesn't move as much air. I don't know if it was here or elsewhere, but I saw one review where the reviewer hooked some testing equipment up and said there's a significant (20 volts or so) voltage drop from this switch. I tried reversing the wires on the switch, even though with AC power it shouldn't make any theoretical difference (sometimes just fiddling with things...works) and it didn't, still had the buzzy motor. Took switch back. Bought one from the other big brand, installed it, no buzz and fan moves same amount of air as before. Don't buy this for a fan switch, and frankly I wouldn't get it for a light, either. February 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Darn fine print Works great for lights,but as I'm finding a common problem with all electric supplies you must read the fine print. Huge voltage drop when I used it for my bathroom fan and as labeled in the fine print using it for a fan caused it to heat up. How it made a UL listing is beyond me. Only good for incandescent lights. It's only redeeming quality is it looks nice. Almost forgot another thing that bugged me is the unlabeled on and off switch. Thought I had a broken fixture till I figured that out May 3, 2013
