Sometimes simple and brute force is better. Earlier in this thread, it was 
suggested that the timer was microprocessor based, not in discrete circuitry, 
and was not easy to reprogram. Some things are easier to do outside the box. 

MANY years ago I attended a workshop on acoustics taught by a very high power 
consultant. His client was a home recording studio that was hearing too much 
rumbling noise when trucks went by on the road out front. The client had been 
reading up on his problem, and was expecting him to prescribe an expensive 
acoustic solution -- rebuild the studio as a room within a room with a 
floating floor, etc.. The consultant, of course, knew how to do this (and had 
done it before), but did some quick math and came to the conclusion that the 
cheapest solution was to fill the potholes out on the road. And that's what he 
told his client to do.
