    Exclamation Timer not working


    Trying to upload photos from phone - hope they did

    Timer is "ticking" but not turning gears so not functioning to turn dial and turn pool on and off

    Any ideas short of call to electrician ?
    I can balance my water but that's where my know how of pool maint pretty much ends

    The printed thing that says "motor check" at about the 1 o'clock position, look thru there with a flashlight to see if the plastic gears are moving. I guessing they aren't. If not, you need to replace the motor Easy to do.

    A word of caution: When working with gas and electrical you might want to consider a licensed contractor. Consider the value of your life and others around you.

    Also check to see if it is stuck in the pull out position. Mine did that once after I pulled it out to set the time and it got stuck in the pulled out position. I had to make sure it went back in.
