Questions & Answers

Can the switch be on in a continuous position so it stays on till you shut it off manually ?

Asked by: timothy
No, this is designed to turn on when the knob is turned to a countdown time and will turn off when that time expires.

Does the time set elapse if the switch is not powered?

Asked by: Jeff
Yes, the timer function is spring powered not electrically driven so it will countdown weather installed/powered or not.

20 Amp 60-Minute In-Wall Spring wound Timer with White and Almond Wall Plate is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 15.

Now will only work if set to 60 minutes. The electrical portion of the timer is fine. I dismantled the switch to see why. The timer is built so that you can manually switch it back off. This however does not "unwind" the internal clockwork. The dial is connected to this clockwork by a friction based connection. Turn it to 60, which winds up the clock, manually turn it back to off, turning the switch off but the ticking continues for 60 minutes. This connection is now slipping. If you just barely touch the dial, or don't turn it fully to 60 minutes it instantly snaps back to the OFF position, turning off the light.

I had this product installed for less than 9 months and the timer quite working. Will be seeking a refund per 1 year warranty. May want to keep paperwork if you buy this as it may be the only product available in the store if you don't order online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An OK product, response to other reviews Installed about a month ago; bought it even AFTER reading the reviews here. The reason is that my Broan 255 units have 20 amp heaters. Timers rated at 20 amps are much more expensive than the commonly available 15 amp rated timers. This unit is rated at 20 amps, it's UL listed and a simple mechanical unit that doesn't even require a Neutral wire as its spring wound, not motorized OR electronic. It's also less than half the cost of other 20 amp timers. It has a 60-min max limit which fits my needs. The review by painterinAZ was most helpful in warning what I would be up against. I agree, stranded 14ga pigtails WILL be needed. If you are stuffing this in a single gang box, you will have to carefully arrange the wiring. I DID successfully put it in a single-gang plastic old-work box. I had to use orange wirenuts as the reds would not squeeze in the box. I did not have to take switch apart for access. If you rotate the decorative faceplate the screws are accessible. Reviewer Rob said the dial knob broke and he couldn't get a replacement. Note that the unit INCLUDES two knobs, an ivory and a white. Due to his review I will make sure to KEEP the spare knobs! Limited use on it so far, but it works very well to date. It shuts off reliably and it is NOT noisy! You can hear it if you try but it is not noticeable, especially as the heater itself makes a good bit of noise. Summary: if you NEED a 20-amp-rated off-delay timer, this one is the best bargain and worth dealing with the bit of install difficulty. If you only need a 15-amp-rated unit, there are many alternatives that are cheap and more compact; plus fancier electronic unit options.

Wiring is pretty straight forward. Remove wires from old switch (straighten and trim if needed) slide them through the holes in the case until they are in the terminals and tighten. No need for pigtails or wire nuts unless your house wiring is too short. I have had this in place for 3 months and used at least 3 times daily with no problems. I have installed this type/size of switch in my houses which have or had wiring from the late 50's, 2005, and my current house 1991.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad design If you are considering purchasing this timer, be warned that this isn't like similar products. Every other retro-fit timer switch I have ever installed has pigtails already attached to the switch, which you simply wire nut to your exiting house wiring. As you can see in the pictures, that is not the case with this one. You must literally take the switch apart to expose the line and load screw terminals where those pigtails should have been attached. Be very careful doing this because the whole thing will fall apart in your hands. I can't imagine connecting Romex to these terminals and then trying to get the whole switch put back together and mounted, so I just cut a couple short lengths of #14 stranded wire and made my own pigtails. Another thing watch out for is that the innards of this switch are huge, there is only about 1/8" clearance on either side (makes routing those wires coming out the side a tad challenging), and the switch has a depth of about 2" so you will need to have all of your wires seriously mashed into the back of the box. If you are installing this in a new box, remember you must also provide your own switch plate.
