This article details the step-by-step process of repairing an analog Danaher Eagle signal timer down to the component level, but be sure to check out our YouTube video to see the process in action.
- We have an analog Eagle timer that is in need of repairs, with the most common problem being the connector ring that breaks with normal wear and tear.
- The technician starts the repair by hooking up the unit to 120V A/C and engaging the relay to start counting.
- This test of the motor reveals that it checks out fine, so the technician needs to take the counter apart to look for the problem.
- After taking it out of the case, the technician notices the connector ring is in bad shape and needs replacing.
- Before ring replacement, the technician creates a wiring diagram to know how to put the pins back into the new connector ring.
- Next, the technician cleans the contacts and realigns the external relay.
- He tests that the gap to make sure the contact between the normally open and normally closed is good, which it is.
- He also replaces the outer bezel for aesthetic purposes and uses common bulb lights to simulate a load on the timer.
- If the light comes on at the end of the 60-second interval, then we know the timer’s signal is engaging.
- Everything is working appropriately, so the unit can be cleaned and shipped back!
