This can be caused by a power failure during the night which would affect the clock setting.

Other causes can be in the mechanism itself.

Electrical storms, and age if the unit are also factors.

Observe that the timer is accurately following current time.
Reset the timer to a setting you can observe.
If it does not work the unit will need servicing or replacing.
