How to find model# of a Timer Switch?

Hello:

My Timer Switch stopped working. Neither manual pressing the button nor scheduled switch work - it doesn't turn on the lights it's supposed to control.

The display is working, and displaying a flashing "batt", which I presume to be an error code. What is it? If it means "battery", then I can't see where the battery would go in this device.

Can someone tell me how to find out the name and model # of this thing to download user guide and find out what the error code is? Nothing printed on the side of this thing looks like a model#.

Or should I just forget it and replace it with a new one? Any recommendation on which one would be the most flexible and programmable?

That looks like an older battery operated Intermatic timer. There is a battery behind the lower door. My recommendation... send it packing. When they get older the battery socket makes poor contact and the thing operates intermittently as well as loses its program. I had four at one time... they're all gone now.

Defiant 49814 timer from Home Depot. This timer needs a neutral connection. It doesn't use batteries. It has daylight savings and auto time change to match the seasons based on time zone. It has a switching relay so it can control ANY load under 20A. For $25.... a choice.

Defiant 20-Amp 7-Day 7-Event In-Wall Digital Timer-49814 - The Home Depot

I can't read the model number, but the manufacturer is Intermatic Inc. Suggest you go to their website and match one of their digital electronic models. The manuals should also be available.

Wow, thanks!

Thank you all soo much! I've ordered a replacement and the schematic from the Easy-Set Guide will help me wire the replacement up really quickly!
I didn't really expect anyone to recognize this thing. Truly - ask, and it shall be given you
