Product Overview

The Maestro Countdown Timer helps you save money and energy by automatically turning off the lights and fans after a preset time. Using the Maestro Countdown Timer on bathroom exhaust fans can reduce the chance of a costly mold problem, and timers attached to garage lights can add an extra layer of safety when you return home at night. Use the large tap switch to turn the timer on and off, and use the rocker on the side to set the timer to the desired time-out option, anywhere from 5-60 minutes. Softly lit orange LEDs indicate the time remaining before turn-off. Save energy by using the Maestro Countdown Timer in closets, attics, basements, and other low-traffic areas to ensure the light is never left on for a long time. Coordinating Claro wallplates and accessories sold separately.

Customer Questions & Answers

Compatibility with ceiling heater

Can this be used with a bath room ceiling heater?
Asked by: Craig
Unfortunately the MA-T51H is not rated to work on a heater, only lighting loads and fan motors.

Is there a minimum load, if so what is it

One review indicated that this did not work on a high efficiency fan because that fan did not draw enough current. Is the reviewer confused or is there in fact a minimum load?
Asked by: Bill
There is a minimum load on these timers of 40W of incandescent or halogen bulbs, or 0.3A of a fan motor. Lutron offers a MA-T51MN-AL which has the same function but bring the minimum load down to 5W, however as a note this will require a neutral connection to operate.

Can I connect a fan AND a light to this timer?

it says fan or light in the info.
Asked by: Tim
Yes you can control both a fan and a light with this control at the same time but it can only handle 3 amps of combined motor load and lighting load in this case.

Is there memory for timer?

Will the timer remember the last timer setting or do you have to use the rocker switch every time you turn on the main switch/power?
Asked by: Piggy
Yes. It stays on your last setting until you change it.

I have an old house with no ground wires - will this particular item work with the ground wire capped off?

I bought a different brand previously and after closely reading the description, the instructions stated that it was designed not to work unless the ground wire was properly connected. Thank you.
Asked by: JimB
This timer will not require a ground wire for it to operate properly.

Will this work with the Panasonic Whisper Quiet bathroom fans? I'm installing a Panasonic FV-08VQ5 WhisperCeiling 80 CFM bathroom fan. Reviews on Amazon state this switch won't work and I need the Lutron MA-T51MN instead. I don't want to buy this more expensive switch if I don't need to.
Asked by: txpack
Since the fan you specified has a total amperage of .12 amps, you would need to use the MA-T51MN because the MA-T51 needs at least .3 amps to operate.

Asked by: Rama
Yes. I have it hooked up to a standard Broan bathroom exhaust fan and it works great.

Maestro 5 Amp In-Wall Digital Timer - Stone is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has one issue. I returned the unit after I read the instructions in the box. The timer is designed to power "blink" when there is a minute left. If I was only running lights through the unit that would be fine, but I also wanted to run electronics and I didn't want everything taking that kind of on/off/on bounce. I saw no way to change that setting. Other than that, if you want a glossy "black" timer it's one of your few choices. I ended up getting another brand and it's bright white, not very attractive.

Deceptive packaging. while this site shows that the switch will not work with fluorescent lights, the packaging does not. So i installed two of them. One actually works with a 2 bulb t8 fluorescent light. I completely installed and re-installed the second switch twice (thinking that is miswired it the first time) before calling the tech support line and being informed that it doesn't work with fluorescent lights. Very aggravating at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Digital timer - brown We bought 3 of these for bathroom fans. They work well and were easy to hook up. Unfortunately we had already put brown outlets and covers in one bathroom so we had to buy one in brown. It was over two times as expensive for the color vs white. I felt this was an excessive up charge.

It matches my existing Lutron dimmers and I love the ability to set a default time but easily override it by pressing the switch twice. I don't know if it exists but a 3-way version would be great.

It does not require a neutral (white) wire when you wire it up. I purchased this timer for my bathroom fan. I had installed a 100 CFM Delta Whisper quiet fan, quiet and low power consumption. When I connected this timer to the fan, it started up, then slowed down, then cycled fast and slow every second or two. I checked the directions again, and found an issue in the troubleshooting section - this timer needs to be connected to a fan that draws at least .3 amp or 40 watts. I removed the timer and connected it to a different, larger fan in another bathroom. Here it works OK. Strangely, as it reaches the end of it's time interval, the fan stops, then runs for about 10 more seconds, then shuts off. The unusual operation and wiring arrangement of this timer leaves me a little uncomfortable. We'll see how long it lasts. I think the outside packaging should indicate that this timer needs a 40 watt load to function so the customer knows if it will work.

I like that they show how much time is left, and the faster flashing at the one minute mark. The only thing that concerns me is whether visitors will know they are fan switches – leaving me to wonder if I should label them as such.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from To high minimum load. Good product, but keep in mind, that it needs some minimum load to operate properly. If You load it with not enough mA, like low power exhaust vent with it's load characteristics, it won't work properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and works well I purchased for bathroom to Help keep moisture in check with newly renovated bathroom. The black looks sleek and elegant and is functional.
