I have a Smiths Industries timeswitch, 24-hour version, controlling a 13A
socket which supplies our washing-machine. It can switch a load up to 3 Kw
It has developed after 15 years a fault, whereby it switches ON at the
intended time but then the dial stops dead and moves no further. I do not
believe it is worn tappets, as we have tried swapping them around, so I am
beginning to think it is the clock motor.
It is mounted on a square switch-box with fixing centres 6cm (2"3/8) apart,
and I wish to keep this arrangement if possible.
Can anyone tell me whether digital units are available, and whether they will
work better? Alternatively perhaps I simply need to get an up-dated version
