Customer Reviews:

  • Wish It Was Smaller
    The switch works great. Looks cool too. I only wish the switch wasn't as deep. It took me a while trimming down spare wire to make space for the switch. It really depends on your setup (adjacent switch depths for example).

  • Great Timesaver
    This is a great time and money saver. You can't leave an exhaust fan on all day and risk burning out the fan motor. We already had two timer switches like these installed, one for each bathroom but we needed a third for the master bath. Luckily, the electricians installed the largest outlet box possible in the bathrooms, because these devices and their connections take up quite a bit of room in the box.

    Wiring is not difficult. The only tricky part is hooking up the two black wires -- one is for the line input (power) and one is for the load (fan). I used a voltage "sniffer" to determine which was the line input. I turned off the circuit breaker for switch, unhooked both black wires from the switch, spread them apart so they wouldn't touch, then temporarily turned on the power and used the "sniffer" to see which black wire was hot (the "sniffer growls in the presence of voltage). That one was the "line" supply. Ground and white neutral connections were obvious. I also shortened the four wires on the switch so I wouldn't have to stuff so much wire back into the outlet box. Oh, we also removed the long aluminum tabs on the sides of the switch so that it could coexist in the same outlet box that houses the light switch.

    I only wish they had one that worked on the exhaust hood over our cooktop....more info
  • Timer
    This unit is the cat's meow.
    For the longest time the heater fan in the bathroom was always running. With this you push one of the preset times and it goes off when time runs out. Best of all it is silent not like the old spring wound timers.
    Wished I had it years ago....more info

    These timers work great for bathroom fans. I wish there was a similar one that had an x-10 interface....more info

  • Installed for bathroom exhaust fan
    The product image incorrectly shows the 15 minute version, but note that this switch actually does 5-10-15-30 minutes. I previously purchased the Leviton LCD timer switch, which I would also highly recommend. Both switches require a neutral wire connection so check your wiring before purchasing. The switch itself is a bit bulky compared to a regular switch so if you have a lot of wiring stuffed in the box, you may have to move it around. Otherwise, installation is not particularly difficult....more info
  • Disappointed
    I have been an electrician for 30 years. I installed 8 of these timers in my own house 5 years ago. Given that I installed them correctly they have worked wonderfully. I have never had one lockup on me. However, I have had 5 fail because the buttons broke off. They appear to rely on a set of very small plastic tabs that retain them against the spring tension. I have found that a tab will break off causing the button to hang crooked then eventually another tab will fail and the whole button will fall off. There is no way to repair short of total switch replacement as Leviton doesn't offer replacement buttons. The frequency of use certainly seems to be a factor as most of the failures are in the rooms most used. However, I think that they have a flawed design or material spec. problem. I recommend that you save your receipt for the warranty claim. Maybe they will get the message. I like the product just wish they would hold up better....more info
  • Works as advertised
    We bought two of these - one for each bathroom. Installation was easy, and the timer works as advertised.

    As other reviewers have noted, this product requires the unswitched power be available at the wall box where the timer is mounted. It can't be made to work if the unswitched power goes to the ceiling box where the ceiling fan is mounted and only the two wires for the switch come down to the wall box. If you've got that kind of setup, you'll need to go with an old-fashioned mechanical timer instead....more info
  • Nice looking and useful switch
    This switch does exactly as advertised. It really looks nice once installed. I have one for every exhaust vent in my home. Never have to worry about the kids or myself using the fans because they turn themselves off automatically. Easy to install. Make sure that you have a neutral wire in your box or you will not be able to use this unit. ...more info
  • It really works
    I've had 2 other timer switches die within months. This one is going on 2 yrs. It really works. No more leaving the bathroom fan on for hours. Install is simple if you are replacing a large rectangle switch. If not then you may need to widen box. Not impossible but will slow the install....more info
  • Leviton timer switch
    Great timer; easy to install. Saves on electricity as fan is on a timer and can't be accidently left run all day. We have four of these in our home and haven't had any troubles. ...more info

  • Timer does the job it was designed to do

    Timer works perfectly. I bought one for the en-suite bathroom and one for the downstairs toilet, to control the extractor fans. Easy to wire up - if your house has a Neutral connection at the switch location. Timer switch is quite deep, so deep socket boxes are required. Timer offers four settings: 5, 10, 15, 30 mins. Very useful to be able to select the length of extraction depending on who last used the room......more info
  • Good product, just make sure your wiring can handle it
    This is wonderful product for venting the bathroom especially if you have kids. I have one bathroom that doesn't have one and the fan is always on blowing my conditioned air outside. So that is why I got this one.

    You need to make sure though that your wiring can handle this. If you don't have a neutral wire at the switch location forget it. Generally this means you need at least two white wires wire nutted together, but there are other ways to have a neutral....more info

  • Leviton Electronic Timer
    Received this product quickly. Installation was easy and the switch works as advertised. Using the switch is better than trying to remember to go back and turn off the fan after the steam has cleared....more info
  • Works great
    Installed in a new construction bathroom to control the bathroom fan. Mounted it between the toilet and the shower so it is easy to access from both. Works great. Was a bit hard to fit into the electrical box with the incoming and outgoing wires, but I managed to get it all stuffed in to the largest single gang box sold by the local big box home improvement store....more info

    These timers are great whether for odor or moisture it is a must have in the bathroom. Just press the time you would like and forget about it. Whats better than that?...more info
  • Solved a moisture problem for us
    I installed this switch 18 months ago in our bathroom (a room isolated from any outside venting thanks to a peculiar design decision made by the previous owners). Previously the exhaust fan had been operated by a standard toggle wall switch, and all of us would forget either to turn it on or turn it off while running the shower.

    The installation was simple, and the "decora"-style block modernizes the room in a snap. The switches are labelled "30-15-10-5-Off" and that's what they do -- push one of them and the fan stays on for that length of time, in minutes. Each switch has an LED indicator next to it, and the time remaining is indicated by the LEDs lighting in turn, from top to bottom (e.g., when 10 minutes remain, the 15 minute LED extinguishes and the 10 minute LED lights). When two minutes remain, the 5 minute LED begins to flash. The OFF LED is a positive indicator that the device is off, and doubles as a night locator (good for our bathroom without windows!). It is unfortunately set a little too far into the lamp housing, which means it can't be seen unless one is facing the switch nearly head on.

    As with other Leviton products, the circuitry is commercial-grade and reliable. Unlike some mechanical timers, this switch does NOT have an option to "hold" in the ON position. This may make it unsuitable for applications such as outdoor safety lighting where it is sometimes desirable to keep the lights on (say, when you're expecting company).

    For a bathroom exhaust fan, it is close to perfect, and I recommend it without reservation....more info
  • Requires neutral for installation
    This requires a neutral. Make sure you have it set up this way before you buy this switch, or have easy access to add additional wiring....more info

  • works nice.
    Hooked this timer to my bathroom fan. Already had modular style switches so it blends in well with other devices. Installed easily (make sure you have neutral wire available in your box). Works properly. Always left the fan running for a lot longer than I needed, so this was perfect solution. Cost of unit is pretty high, so going to take a long time to recoup cost in utilities savings....more info
