To save some time, the issue is most likely the timer motor.This happens quite often when they age or deteriorate, they might trigger the ON, but not the OFF.The OFF takes a little more push on the contact that n the on and why it may turn it on and not off.First make sure the OFF pin is set good and not bent etc.If you can trigger it manually on and off, the contacts are good, so its the trigger mechanism. You can get a new motor or mechanism below, just check your motor now to see if you are using a 120 volt, or the multi volt 208-240-277 motor. New motor will take care of the situation.125 volt motor--CLICK HERE 208-240-277 volt motor-CLICK HERE If you prefer, a Complete mechanism replacement-CLICK HERE Let me know anything further needed,Thanks
