Repair was straightforward. When I got the old timer out, I found the problem. Two small screws secure the geardrive for the timer to the electrical part. One of the screws had vibrated loose and allowed the gearbox to float away from the electrical board, so the gears werent meshing and the little ground tab inside wasn't touching the metal geardrive housing. In short, I would recommend removing your old timer and diagnosing the problem. before spending $100 on a new one. If I had done that, I could have just tightened the screw back in and saved myself the $$. Just FYI
