I thought they stopped making those things. Maybe I'm wrong, if they do still make them, replace them with a new one or a reconditioned one as SprinkletGuy mentioned.

Perhaps you should consider repairing the Valet. We repair these timers for approximately $75.00 Usually just a timing motor or index motor. Rarely is it something serious. We also are able to obtain reconditioned Imperials sometimes. But, if it is serious, it will be easier in the long run to repair the Valet or purchase a reconditoned one than it will to install a new timer, mechanical or otherwise.

Very hard to replace the dependability of the Valet.

Good Luck!

I would replace it with a Rainbird RC-1260C Mech. Controller. Rainbird does not make an 11 station controller, but this one is 12 station. Another one you might want to look at is the ESP 12LX+ made by Rainbird also. This isn't a mechanical controller, but works just as good, it not better than mechanical controllers. It has many more features. Here is the page for it:

It's a long address. Hope this helps.

Replacement for Imperial Valet Timer

I was wondering what mechanical 11 station timer is available to replace my Imperial Valet Timer with or can you still get parts for the Imperial Valet Timer . I have periodic lighting surges that short out normal electronic timers in my area .
