If you're looking for a timer that will always work and never catch fire as well as being waterproof this is the one you want.
UL-listed, of course!
All the internal components are high-quality and electrical connections are on par with any high-quality electrical panel.
And, rather than using a micro-font to fit 3 languages on the interior label, there are two extra labels (French and Spanish) included.
Caution, wear gloves or just be very careful when removing the timer board from the enclosure... ALL of the metal edges are knife-sharp.
The enclosure itself is well-made, extremely well finished, and has no sharp edges whatsoever.

Perhaps when GE moved the manufacturing to China, they no longer smoothed those sharp edges.
Although for my purposes, I only need one "on" and one "off" time, it should really include another pair of "trippers," if for no other reason than as a spare.

This item is solidly built and works well. I am dropping it two stars because the instructions are printed with an installation error. Pay close attention to the illustration not the written instructions and you should be fine. You will also want to regularly check the timer clips as they will work themselves lose over time. Noticed after a few weeks that the accent lighting was not turning off when I set them for and checked the box. Sure enough, the clips had shifted and felt pretty lose. The inherent flaw with a mechanical timer is that if something works itself lose, it will, by desgin, shift around because it activates and shuts off based upon physically pushing against the on/off switches. Once it works ose, it will just slide along until it snags on something then forces the switch on or off. Not a major issue, just be aware this is not a completely maintenance free item once installed.

I wired this into two extension cords to run my pool pump. It is heavy duty and works well. I had previously used a "heavy duty" timer of a different brand and it burned up after one season. This is why I decided to go to a real heavy duty timer, which is much more substantial than the others. The price is great too. Don't waste your money on a cheap plastic model if you want your timer to last for a pool pump.

I bought this to replace an older one which controlled my pool pump and was very pleased initially when unpacking to see that it seemed to be well made and at $40, was good value. My views changed after installation, as you will see below. It was relatively easy to install and I found the instructions to be fairly straightforward.

One thing that I found surprising, regarding the instructions, is that there is a note in the 'Warning' section which states "grounding must be continuous and in proper electrical contact in all grounding conductors, metallic conduits and grounding terminals" Nothing wrong with that, however, the instructions only state that the bare (ground) wire is to be connected to the ground lug on the metal box. No mention is made of connecting this to the ground terminal provided on the metal plate of the timer module. Without physically connecting these by an additional ground wire, grounding of the module is dependent only on good metallic contact between the module and the box. This would normally be adequate to begin with but in a few years there may be corrosion which could reduce the connectivity. To be safe, make sure you install a ground wire between the ground lug of the box and that of the module. GE, please include this in the instructions!

Incidentally, the grounding instructions only refer to a "bare" wire which is common on 3-core cables. Proper installations for pool pumps or water heaters, for example, would have a separate green insulated wire, so the instructions should include this possibility. GE, again, take note.

After installation and double checking everything, I threw the breaker switch and pushed down the 'ON' lever, expecting the pump motor to start. Nothing!

Since I bought this for my pool I installed it before it opened. After opening my pool the timer part worked for a day. It doesn't attempt to keep time. Since it had been just a few days longer than 30 days amazon won't exchange it. Go to Lowe's where you have better protection as a shopper.

Very high quality, well made product with very easy-to-understand instructions and technical specifications. Wired input/output receptacles for 30 Amp service. Works GREAT! Very difficult to locate a timer for last-minute Christmas lighting that will handle 30 Amps -- this timer is rated for 40 Amps.

Arrived on time in perfect condition. I actually only used the dial -- the dial on my old (identical) timer broke and this was the only way I could find to replace it. I stored the rest, in the box, in case other parts of the original 3-year old timer fail. Too bad I couldn't buy just the dial.

This unit has already failed after just under 2 months. The clock movement is no longer strong enough to turn off the contacts. Unit will keep time and turn on contacts but has to be turned off manually and the clock has to be reset daily.
