    Inside the metal control box are 3 plugin relays. Number 3 is the interrupter/timer relay. It is the one with the round metal notched wheel. Get one off a machine that is working properly or get a new one and try it. Sometimes when you pull them out you can see the burned contact. In fact, you should have at least one of all three in stock.

    Also, you can download Pat Trap manuals from their website.
