    TE Series IMPORTANT NOTE: When F030 or F031 is changed in program mode, the timer will not respond to the new settings until after control power has been cycled (off and back on again). CAUTION If F030 = 0 (Disabled), the TCC will be ignored. So if F032 = 1-8 and F030 = 0, the starter will not operate! Make sure that if F030 = 0, F032 = 0 as well.
