Halacha - Bishul Akum - Timer
Submitted by Chaim  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is one allowed to set a timer for his oven to go on and when it goes on have a goy use the oven to cook for him?
Answer:

 

Rav Belsky holds that one may set the timer for a single instance; meaning, you can set it to turn on the oven tomorrow, but not every day for a month.

However, Rav Heinemann holds that it may not be relied upon at all.

In any event, it would only work according to the Rema who considers lighting the fire sufficient, according to the Mechaber, a Jew must also place the food on the fire. Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach advised people to be Machmir for the Mechaber, though it never became the Ashkenazi Minhag to do so.
