Tip & How-To about GE Home Security
VERY straight forward setup. SET the Dial to the correct DAY of the week and TIME. This timer is PRESET at the factory and you can NOT adjust any other ON/OFF settings yourself!
"Pre-Set" mostly for evening and later evening times or hours "ON/OFF". These times CHANGE from evening to evening and again, ALL settings are made by GE! ALL ON/OFF cycles change from evening-to-evening and day-to-day.
SWITCHES: 1,875 WATTS MAXIMUM!
1,250 WATTS if you connect INCANDESCENT LAMPS!
I hunted and hunted for the specs on this Timer, but found none. I finally purchased two and read the tiny manual. I set one up in the kitchen to TEST with a 50 Watt lamp and it works GREAT... I just don't know WHEN it will cycle next, but I guess that's the mission and point of these spiffy timers!

1. To Set Program:
Pull up one tripper
between hour marks
on the 24-hour dial
for each 1/2 hour of
ON time desired. For
example, if timer is to
be ON between 12-2
PM, all four trippers
between those times
must be pulled up.
2. To set time
of day: turn dial
clockwise with the
arrow head pointed
to the correct time.
The dark area
denotes PM and
the white area
Straight out of the manual. Pull up trippers for all of the time that you want the device to run.
Rotate the time of day dial in the direction of the arrows.
The off/on dial will override the timer until it comes around to the on time again then the timer will control.
