    Intermatic Timer - crapped the bed!

    Just went outside to continue painting the pool house when I noticed the filter wasn't running..
    After checking all "fuses" turning on and off main power, I now know the clock motor in the timer is dead.. or the whole thing-
    The override switch isn't allowing the filter to turn on either..
    I think I need to buy a new timer. Lowe's only available for delivery. Any thoughts?
    Should we continue with this type of timer?
    I need to get my filter running asap. I do hope it is just the timer and not the filter motor as well. (My husband just texted me that the power went out this morning for a few minutes)
    Any advice please and thank you

    Can you hear the timer running? You should be able to hear if you put your ear close to it

    Home Depot also carries Intermatic timers. Have you tried there?

    I forgot about HD. Will try them! I can hear a slight hum.. but the time is not changing. I thought I used to hear it ticking.

    I don't know if yours is the same model Intermatic as mine, but I had a devil of a job removing the mounting screws, to the point where I posted on TFP to make sure I was in fact removing the retaining screws. It was straightforward once I got confirmation that I was proceeding correctly.

    How does the pesky timer motor come out??

    I think my timer is running.. when I just rebooted the main power again, I hear"electricity" running in the timer. Waiting to see if the time thing moves enough to see that it works.
    I am afraid that my filter has died. I have a 1hp USQ1102 MOTOR.
    How do I check it out to see if that is what has died? I would hate to call the pool company. Oye
