Fixed one of my Jim Coleman timers…. I did it professional style! :)

If you shake your timer and it sounds like a huge object is loose this is probably the problem. 🙂

My inductor coil fell off…. I soldered additional wires to the ends of the inductor coil wires. Which did not change the voltage. The timer also worked again. I also hot glued it to the board. (Maybe to prevent this from happening again?)

I did not take a picture and I do not know if the timer worked correctly or not. (It was one of my 15 broken Jim Coleman timers though.) Someone unwinded the inductor coil wire to give each side enough wire to solder to the board. Just a note…. this also changes the output voltage. Might not effect things though? I did not want to try this obviously. 🙂
