Product Description

Amazon.com

The Intermatic digital seven-day programmable wall switch timer controls lighting, including fluorescent, and heavy-duty loads such as fans and appliances. The device can be used with four separate programming options: same settings Monday through Friday; Saturday and Sunday; all 7 days of the week; and individual daily settings. The timer features an LCD digital clock readout, as well as to-the-minute accuracy. Program up to six on/off settings per seven-day period accurately to the exact minute, and a total of 42 on/off settings per week. Other features include manual override, easy-to-set six-button programming, battery backup, and a random setting feature, available to avoid predictable timer-controlled look. The product also maintains programming up to three years (even during power failures), and includes a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty.

That one lasted about a month.

This has to be the worst product I have ever purchased and I have never written a review like this.

I bought my Intermatic SS8C timer at LOWE's(sorry, Amazon.) It was about 10 month ago. The first one I brought home was No OP in the beginning as soon as I put the battery in. I returned it and the second one worked fine for 10 months. I died eventually. No OP.

I know it works mechanically(I heard gear noise and clicking sound whenever it switches.) I opened the back cover and tried to fix it.

A tiny motor drives geartrain which actuates a microswitch. The switch itself is very reliable, but the motor was not strong enough. When the friction of geartrain increase, the motor cannot drive the mechanism any more. So I lubricated the geartrain with high quality sythetic grease I have. When I put them back, it works. For two days so far so good.

I have to stick with this model because I switch CFL lamps(small fluorecent lamp) for my porch. Electronic switch models cannot turn on CFL but only handle incadescent lamp. Only mechanical switch models like this can do it. Therefore I will fix this timer if it fails again. I am sorry that no other manufactures are interested in this specific application. I think the interest will increase when more and more consumers want to use timer for CFL lamps.

I got the dreaded Intermatic noop problem -- you try to turn teh lights on or off, the unit appears to "try" to switch (flashing display), then gives up and says "noOP," which is computerese for "no operation" -- in other words, it failed, and it is teling you so.

Most people end up throwing it out. I resset the unt, and scheduled an automatic (timed) on/off cycle. he clock switched the lights off at the appointed minute, and worked normally thereafter.

So, if you get a noop, pull teh abttery, reset the unit, set the clock to 12:01 AM, then program an off cycle for 12:02 AM (if you were stuck with the lights on -- schedule an on cycle for 12:02 if they were stuck turned off). Put the unit in Auto mode, wait a minute, and when the switch changes successfully you should be back in business.

Lost mine to a No Op after just 6 months. The other reviews seem to suggest that this is a common problem. I will not be buying another.

Reviewer H Won below ("I fixed a No Op timer") mentioned that most electronic timers are not compatible with compact fluorescent light bulbs. Fortunately Aube Technologies (of Canada) does manufacture two electronic programmable timers compatible with CFL light bulbs: the TI-033 and the TI-035. Both feature a "soft-start" technology that won't shorten the life of CFL light bulbs.

(...)

"Works with motors and all types of lighting (compatible with electronic ballasts, compact fluorescent lights and tungsten lights up to 5 A)"

I do not find a listing on Amazon for the TI-033. Amazon lists only its 40-500watt cousin, the TI-032 (listed as "Aube 7-Day 40-500w Light Switch Timer (White) ") So an electronic timer *is* available that works with CFL light bulbs - however Amazon currently only lists for sale the version that doesn't work with CFLs.

(...)

"40w minimum" ...
"Works with incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting (compatible with electronic ballasts)"

Amazon does have a listing for the TI-035 under the name "Aube Solar Timer Switch (White)". And Amazon has a listing for it's 40-500watt solar cousin, the TI-034-3W. The TI-035 and TI-034-3W "solar" models will turn lights on at sunset and off at sunrise without a photo-eye, simply by inputting your location (they provide the settings for most major U.S. cities). Unlike a photo-eye, you can program them to turn off in the middle of the night if you want.

Unfortunately while the TI-035 listing is there, the Aube TI-035 is currently unavailable on Amazon. Once again, only the 40-500watt version (the Aube TI-034-3W) is currently available for sale on Amazon. Hopefully this will change soon, as more and more people are buying compact fluorescents.

After a few months, I got 'No Op' message and couldn't even manually turn on/off my outdoor lights. This is my 2nd timer. Both died for the same reason and both didn't even last a year. The company Intermatic is continuously selling this product for years now and is still a piece of JUNK!!! Don't waste your money on this product. I wouldn't waste money for ANY of their products since they don't seem to care to fix it or stop selling such crap.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me three (!) times, shame on me. Terrible quality. Units simply fail (the dreaded "No Op" sign - those of you who have seen this know that means you get to rip the thing out of the wall again) in less than a year. This last one, my third, lasted three months. The heck with the one year warranty. I do not want another one in my house. This has to be the worst product I have ever purchased and I have never written a review like this. Do not buy this timer.

I had the NoOp show up on my unit after two years, but I fixed the problem. I pulled the battery and the case that holds the battery, and with the battery still removed, I pressed the manual on/off button. (It's the button labelled next on/off) I heard a faint sound like the unit typically makes when automatically turning the lights on or off. I put the battery back in and it works fine again. It's worth a try for the rest of you if the unit stopped working. I love this timer, but wish the NoOp problem didn't effect so many buyers of the product.
