Well, the time delay switch on the front ought to be engaged (it's first on the bottom row of the 2 x 3 switches on the metal faceplate left to right). The switch next to it controls the delay length.
It should sound like it isn't there!

If your time delay switch is on as BillD says,
it's likely your bucket brigade delay line chip went bad.

This will happen if a voltage regulator goes bad.
