Q:

Dear MoneyPit:

Last Sunday a lady had  CFL that burnt out fast onher timered Switch.

There are timers that are Incondesent  lights only.

These timers do not turn the voltage to Zero volts, They let about 40 volts constant.

She needs a timer that is Induction motor capable. They turn the voltabe to Zero volts when off.

Learned this placing a timer on a bathroom fan. With the incendesent  timer only,the fan contionued to turn slow all the time.

Checked voltage and I got a reading  about 40 volts.

Home Depot Lowes do not sell induction timers, only incondesent only.

Ordered direct from Leviton on line.

Thank You
