ArcPy-Import Toolbox question

Newbie here. Since ModelBuilder does not have a task scheduler, I thought I would write a simple script in python to call that model and then add a task scheduler to that. Could someone give me a hand, not sure what the error message means below. Am thinking I need to set an alias for my tool name, but not sure how that is done. Thanks.

>>> import arcpy
>>> arcpy.ImportToolbox(r"L:\D\W\GIS\Users\AAA\Models\Andys Toolbox.tbx", 1FumView)
Parsing error SyntaxError: invalid syntax (line 1)
>>> arcpy.ImportToolbox(r"L:\D\W\GIS\Users\AAA\Models\Andys Toolbox.tbx", "1FumView")
Runtime error

are these multiple attempts packed into one?  Where is the script that you are using to import the toolbox?  Is it assigned to a tool in arctoolbox?  Do you have a toolbox created in arctoolbox and do you have the model and the other tools included in it?

Some elaboration and screenshots of what you have would be useful
