Tip & How-To about GE Home Security

GE RANDOM VACATION TIMER GE5111N-71D also known as GE5111N

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.

120VAC
operation.
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!

Timers are 24 hour, but some have 7-day capability:
Manual says: to set 7-day grasp large 24 hour dial and rotate either direction until correct day of the week appears below Day Set red dot and 12 noon on large 24 hour dial is below red pointer.
To set 24 hour, grasp large 24 hour dial and rotate either direction until correct time appears below red pointer.
Red pointer is stationary at 6:00 position.

I have 2 intermatic lamp & appliance programmable timers. On the package the model number says: TN811C and on the timer itself says: TN811. Anyways I have read the instructions and I can't figure out how to work the timer. What's the off/on dial for on the top of the timer. Do the things need to be pushed up to be on or pushed down to be on? I need help. Thanks


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
denotes AM.
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.
Good luck.

We have an AMF Paragon 4001 timer for the light outside our building. The light goes on lately at the wrong time. We want it to be on at 7:00pm and off and 5:00am but it goes on at 12:00 at noon.


To set paragon timer: Pull large round dial straight out towards you, then rotate dial until correct time is lined up with stationary 'pointer' on front of dial

Setting Date & Day


Two clicks to the dial on the right. First click adjusts the day of the month. To change the day of the week pull out to second click and go forward or backward in 'time' and week will follow.
