I don’t think there is anything wrong with the type of timer selected.
While there might be something wrong with the individual one purchased, it should work just fine with a bathroom fan.

I believe that is a Leviton LTB60. It is 1hp rated.

While I have a personal preference for spring wound timers, I wouldn’t say that it is the correct type for fans (implying everything else is not)

Is this timer/fan on either of the two circuits referenced in your other thread ?

If killing the breakers for that other problem also kills this fan/timer, your lower fan speed may be related to your wiring problems there.

Levitton sells different versions of the installed timer. The one the orange store sells is not fan rated. In my area, they are online orders or supply house items.

The timer is unaffected by the outlet problem.

She bought a new timer Sunday but works long hours an won't be able to change it till next weekend. We'll let you know the result.

Everyone is so great on here.

Hooray hooray. Success.

She bought timer for fan ( an light) and yes, now it sounds same as it did before. No wonder she bought wrong one. It needs word "fan" emphasized or larger letters. Glancing at package you can hardly tell difference.

This one can be turned off, or preset for different increments.

A big thanks to all of you!!!

So it's no wonder the return line at the stores is so long and amazon returns are astronomical with fedx and ups laughing all the way to the bank.
