 Hi
 I  came  back  from  Aquatika  to  find  that  my  four  pin  Frontier  timer  has  conked  out.  Checking  with  a  line  tester  shows  a  slight  glow  even  when  the  timer  is  off,  there  is  a  good  glow  when  its  in  on  position,  but  the  neutral  output  pin  also  shows  a  slight  glow  in  this  position.  No  equipments,  lights  or  power  head  work  from  the  timer.
 
 Is  it  possible  to  repair  this  timer?  Any  suggestions  as  to  who  might  do  it?
 
 More  importantly  is  it  worthwhile  trying  repair  it  (considering  that  the  whole  thingy  is  roughly  around  Rs  600/-  only  in  Kochi)  ?  Would  it  be  better  to  chuck  the  damaged  one  out  and  buy  a  new  one?

 Hey  Unni,
 
 Sorry  to  hear  that,  I  have  tried  my  hands  to  get  some  of  these  fixed,  but  never  been  successful.  The  person  who  says  he  can  fix  them  talks  of  prices  for  repair  in  the  range  of  300-400,  thats  as   good  as  getting  a  new  timer  perhaps  !.
 
 IMO  the  best  is  to  simply  replace  it  and  live  worry  free.
 
 Cheers

 Hi  Unni,
 
 You  can  contact  Deepak  Brid,  he  may  help  you  out.  But  as  already  said  by  Nirav,  it  would  be  better  if  you  replace  the  timer  with  a  new  one!

 Hi,
 
 All  that  it  may  require  is  a  change  of  battery  !

 I  forgot  to  post  something  in  the  initial  post.  The  screen  shows  the  clock  and  timer  reading  perfectly  and  the  On  Off  timing  are  still  displayed  on  it.  So  I  think  that  its  unlikely  to  be  the  battery  Sad  
 
 Thanks  Nirav  and  Rocky

 Unni,
 
 My  timer  showed  the  same  problem  couple  of  weeks  back...  I  tried  fixing  it..  but  it  was  coming  around  the  same  cost  which  you  had  mentioned..So  guess,  its  better  to  get  a  new  one...
 
 Regards
 Subhankar

 I  got  mine  fixed  for  150  bucks  (The  relay  had  conked  off)  and  then  it  went  kaput  again.
 I  didi'nt  bother  again  to  get  it  repaired.
 
 I  guess  if  the  repair  cost  is  about  50%  of  its  cost  price....it  would  be  better  to  buy  a  new  one.

 Hi  Unni,
 I  think  it  is  still  OK  to  give  a  try  by  changing  the  battery.
 The  battery  may  have  enough  power  for  the  Led  display  but  not  enough  power  to  operate  the  relay  switch.
 
 Or  it  can  be  issue  with  fuse.
 See  this  link.

 @  Sujo,
 
 The  battery  inside  the  timer  is  only  to  run  the  clock  and  not  the  relay  switch.  The  relay  is  a  48Volt  and  it  would  function  only  when  the  mains  power  it  ON.  If  you  do  not  see  the  time  in  the  LCD  display,  then  it  shows  that  the  battery  is  out  and  time  to  replace  the  battery.

 Thanks  Shelly.
 I  was  thinking  that  the  battery  was  controlling  both.
 
 What  you  said  is  correct.
 When  the  main  is  not  connected,  we  will  not  hear  the  sound  of  relay  ON  and  OFF.

 Hi,  There  is  nothing  to  worry.   Unscrew  four  screws  located  at  the  back.   Remove  the  battery.   Replace  the  same  value  of  the  battery.   Close  the  back  panel  and  tight  with  screws.   Connect  the  timer  and  you  can  find  its  working.
