This is in a bathroom on the 2nd floor. The bathroom has a jacoozi tub in it. I thought this would be for heat from a exhaust fan but the fan doesnt have heat. The switches are for a light and the fan, the dimmer is for a light over the tub. I have no clue what this timer is for. Its not for a heated floor either.

Any ideas?

Most bathroom timers I've seen are for allowing the exhaust fan to run for X amount of time, so you can leave the room with it running to dry it out thoroughly before it shuts off.

If it's old, it could be shot and bypassed.

The only way to really find out is to trace it down.

It could be a timer for a light on the outside of the house or pretty much anything. Is it powered?

My jacooooozi has a timer. I'm pretty sure it's std fare. Built our home 25 yrs ago, & have used it maybe 1/2 doz times!

I've wired timer switches for remote exhaust fans.

Is the switch fried? Did you test to see if you had a hot lead coming to it? Replace with switch, see if anything comes on?

I too would guess exhaust fan at one time.

I'm with Tinstaalf. Common practice around here to put exhaust fans on timers (putting them on two bathrooms I'm currently doing) so that the moisture is exhausted from the room a while after you're out of the room.
