What wiring hookup makes buzzer come on and go off when timer stops? Mine stays on all the time weather penny is used or not. Help Thanks. Bill

Hi Bill -
The timer has a brass arm that is spring loaded - that arm serves to connect the battery circuit.

The connection happens on the left side of the timer (with the mech sitting outside of the case, with timer on left and battery on right)

Looking onto the side of the mechanism, you'll see the timer and the brass arm. It will come in contact with the brass tab that has a wire soldered to it.
When the timer cycle ends, the brass arm should be SEPARATED (not touching) the tab above. (Thus, opening the circuit and shutting off the electrode).

When the coin is inserted and timer twisted, the brass arm is allowed to come into contact with the tab, thus closing the connection.

There is a machine screw that holds the tab in place. If you loosen it, you'll find that the tab with the soldered wire actually has a slot and can slide for adjustment.
You must set if so that there is a gap when the timer has reached the cycle end.

Hope this helps.
