Sun Timing Light repair

My 20 yr old Sun Timing Light stopped working (flashing). I assumed it was the bulb. After taking it apart and seeing the flash tube element; its not something I wanted to mess with.

Found Gary in S. Florida who used to work for Sun Consumer Products. He now repairs them. Turned out to be something loose on the circuit board.

I am not affiliated, but for $35 total, $25 repair and $10 return shipping I am back in business. Definitely worth talking to before spending the $$ on a new light

Re: Sun Timing Light repair

When mine quit working about 2 years ago, I did a search on E-bay and found a brand new one in the box for $20

Thumbs up Re: Sun Timing Light repair

I have an 'age-old' Chrome Sun light that I truely love
I've dropped that poor thing more than once and it has even been for the dreaded "fan ride" a time or two in it's life
Still works fantastic but, it good to know I can still get it repaired
Maybe I should send it in anyway for a 'spa-weekend' to get checked out and calibrated if needed...

Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!
