I can set the time to run for one 24-hour cycle. But there is an off-on switch on the side. when the light switches off for the first time, it turns the on-off switch on the side to OFF, and the timer stops working.

SOURCE: I have several LS220 24

I don't know LS220 timer, and internet search turns up no legit information.

I suggest 4 possible solutions:

1) If this is a dial timer with segments, and you pull these segments up to set on-off times: work-around for missing segment is to switch am and pm hours. Fresh set of un-used segments exist on opposite side of dial.

2) Add a comment with clear description of timer.
I will check my files against timers that have replaceable trippers
Specific Intermatic and Tork timers have replaceable tripper parts.
Trippers are available on heavy-duty timers that generally cost more.

3) Identify your timer or similar timer on following link, and then add a comment and I will respond.

4) If this timer costs $20 or less, Buy another timer since it would be cheaper than ordering off the internet and paying S&H.

Timer is not identified for certain. Expert does not have instruction manual and can only guess at cause of problem.
For example not all timers are rated for CFL or halogen bulbs.
Loose light bulb filament, or loose light bulb, or dirt in light bulb socket can cause problem, replace light bulb.
Conflicts in timer programming can cause problem with digital timer.
Read more options listed below:

1) Add a comment and describe timer appearance and if timer is programmable or has a rotary dial.
Describe what buttons appear on timer.

2) Take photo of timer and post on flickr and add comment with link to that photo.

3) Scan your timer instructions into file format. Post this file to Flickr and then add a comment with link to those instructions.

I made my own trip pins using 1/16" baling wire. I first bent the wire double leaving approximately 1/16" between the legs. Next, I cut the loop off a crimp-on copper electrical terminal, and discarded it. Then I slipped the open legs of the wire into the remaining ferrule (crimp section) and positioned it close to the closed loop of wire, leaving the open ends of wire sticking out the other end. I then crimped the ferrule to form a handle. One of the exposed legs was cut so that it extended out of the ferrule 0.15" to 0.20", and the other to 0.325" to 0.35". Using a small flat-blade screw driver and pliers I adjusted the separation of the two legs to provide a snug fit in the timer dial. Having the long leg closest to the center of the dial turns the timer on, and having the long leg out turns the timer off.

How do you program a Tork 602A timer? I can't get mine to cycle on and off at a desired time.


The Tork 602A mechanical outdoor timer with 2 grounded outlets.
Tork 601A and 602A manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or ink pen to set timer on-off functions.
With Tork timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.
To double-check pin setting, manually rotate timer to watch when lights turn on-off.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Change on-off times by resetting a pin or two.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch is located on inner dial.

Set Manual switch to TIMER for programs to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.

For starters, disregard which way the timer runs. Push in the pins for when you want it to power your lights. Turn the dial to set the time of day that it is now. That should be it.

Programing


You posted under Leviton 6124 programmable timer.
If this is not your timer, add a comment
Leviton 6124 manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/6124-manual.pdf

If you have different timer, look at link below to help identify timer.
Leviton Timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leviton-timers.html

Leviton 6124 timer instructions:
Timer comes with plastic protector over display >> remove protector to see display.
Large button is manual override.
After timer is wired, push override to make sure Load turns ON and OFF.

Timer has 3 small buttons located below manual override used for programming
Display is divided into 24-hours with am times on left and pm on right.
24 Hour day is divided into 1/2 Hour segments
Each 1/2 hour must be set for ON or OFF

Start by pushing left-side event-cursor-advance-button and it scrolls down each 1/2 Hour.
Once you arrive at 1/2 hour > make decision if you want timer ON or OFF for that half hour.

Press event-set-reset-button in center to set ON-OFF for that 1/2 hour.

Press center event-set-reset-button and solid black rectangle fills in for that half hour.
Solid black rectangle means timer ON for that 1/2 Hour.

Once solid square is selected, press event-cursor-advance-button and cursor advances again and starts filling in black rectangles for each 1/2 Hour period.
Keep filling in black rectangles for all times you want timer ON.

When you reach 1/2 Hour period you want timer OFF, then press center event-set-reset-button so that no black rectangle is visible for that 1/2 hour.
No black rectangle means timer is OFF for that half hour.

To set current time, use right-side time-advance-button.
Press and hold time-advance and time cursor advances down through the am and then pm hours.
Stop cursor at current time, and timer is ready.

I have ge model 15119 24 her timer and need help on how to set


GE 15119 timer is a 24-hour plug-in dial-type timer.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Plastic segments located around outer edge of dial control on-off operations.
Each segment represents 30 minutes of 24-hour day.

Timer comes with segments down.
Each segment can be lifted up using small screwdriver under edge of segment.

Segments down, timer is ON.
Segments up, timer is OFF.
So if you want timer to turn on at 7pm and turn off at 11pm, then lift all segments around dial except segments between 7 and 11.

geno_3245_126.jpg

Dial is divided into two parts > day and night.
Nighttime hours are shown by numbers with dark background >> notice small crescent moon where 12 midnight is located.
Daylight hours are shown by numbers with light background, and sun symbol shows at 12 noon

To set current time, so timer knows what time it is right now:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.

There is override switch located on one side of timer.
Move switch to Timer ON position and timer program will function.
If you want to turn lights ON using override switch, move switch to OUTLET ON.

Last steps:
Turn lamp on.
Plug lamp into timer.
Plug timer into wall.

I have basic timer # 15417. No instructions came with it and I don't know how to set it..


GE 15417 is electro-mechanical plug-in timer

GE 15417 GE15119 GE15131 are combined in one instruction sheet:
http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/manual-downloads/applications/DocumentLibraryManager/upload/15119-Manual-eng.pdf

1) Rotate dial until current time lines up with stationary black triangle located in center.
2) Segments around outer dial divide 24-hour day into 48 half-hours. Lift segments for times you want lights to be OFF. Segments down for times you want lights ON.
3) Slide-switch on side of timer is manual override. To use timer function, set switch to 'Timer ON'
4) Plug light into timer, plug timer into wall.
5) Maximum load is usually around 500Watts >> check markings on timer for exact load capability.

How can I program my Leviton timer model 6651-I?


Leviton 6651 Manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Leviton-6651-manual.pdf
Timer requires a battery which should be replaced each 12 to 18 months.
Timer replaces single-pole or 3-way switch, and does not need a separate neutral wire.
Timer is for incandescent lights only.
500 Watt capacity
Push the door for manual override to reverse program that is in effect.

The 14 hour timing period is represented by 24 dip switches.
Each dip switch is positioned for ON or OFF.

Click the dip switch right or left
Start at the bottom
For example: ON for 3 hours, OFF for 4 hours, ON again for 3 hours:
Click dip switches 1 thru 3 to ON position, 4 thru 7 to OFF position, 8 thru 10 to ON position
ON position is to the right.
OFF position is to the left.

At the end of the 14 hour program, the timer turns lights OFF until the original start time is reached after 24 hours.
Timer will operate like this while in AUTO mode, until function switch is moved from AUTO to MAN or OFF modes.
Function switch is located at very bottom of timer door.
To activate program (on first day), function switch is set to OFF position for 2 seconds, and then move function switch to AUTO mode, and programming cycle begins.

There is also a way of setting it by simply turning the light on and off at the desired time. Can yu help?


Manual: http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/ej351c%20-%20english.ashx

The manual says:
"To automatically program, letting the switch
timer "record" your ON/OFF activities over a 24-hour period,
storing them as programmed settings:

Move the control lever to the OFF-CLEAR position for about
20 seconds. The red indicator light will go off and any previous
time settings will be cleared from memory.
Move the control lever to the ON position. The Red indicator
light will start flashing.
Press the dial as an ON/OFF switch to turn lights ON and OFF
at the ON and OFF times you desire for the first 24 hours.
At the end of the 24-hour period, the switch timer will be programmed
and the Red indicator light will stay ON, indicating
that the switch timer is in AUTOMATIC mode."
