Some of this makes sense (depending on the timer etc) and some of it does not...Originally Posted by 6C5D495045080C083C0 link=1269218094/0#0 date=1269218094
Sounds like there is more to it; than what has been suggested.
1: The power switch is just that on mine and most of the machines I have seen... A DPST *and theh GPO switch should be just the same.. *Thus there must have been more to it... *
Some timers are not RATED at high current surges and that can introduce high voltage spikes etc.. And or may only switch one line... Thus Natural OR active can still be at a 240V potential and to the machine... This has killed many tecs and home owners years ago. That is why the gpo switches today; switch both lines. *However unless ya check... Assumptions do what ???
Short fix and reliable:
Change ya routine; *That is get up and switch the unit ON asap. *Then by the time ya have showered / dressed and got ya self ready... The machine will be ready for ya first shot of the day....
NOTE: Timers serve a function but are not fool proof. *What happens if your anti vac valve sticks... *45min of hissing and farting until ya water level drops and the system shuts off or you get up ... Assuming you do have a low level water cct.
