I have a similar sounding timer. It has the same dial and an AM/PM window on it and is made by Dynascan. I found this post on Fixya: http://www.fixya.com/support/t2314418-instructions_program_intermatic_ej351c and then went to the intermatic site and got these instructions: http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/ej351c%20-%20english.ashx I used the RAPID programming instructions and they seemed to work great (at least the red light acted like it was supposed to.) Guess I'll find out tonight :)

Outdoor 3-Outlet Photocell Timer


Photocell is 'seeing' lights and thinks it's dawn so it turns off.
When lights are off, timer thinks it's night and clicks back on.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot

1) Turn photoeye away from lights.
2) Buy new timer since photoeye is first thing to malfunction on cheap Christmas timers.
3) Buy new timer at Lowes, and return defect in new package

I have a EI600WC timer installed (by electrician) in my garage to control outdoor christmas lights (outlets in eaves). The switch will not turn the lights on!


Yes 100' maximum is problem. To work around problem, you can use timer to turn on a contactor, and then the contactor is not limited to 100' distance.
Copy following link to see wiring diagram, and you can wire it yourself:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Dawn-dusk-120Volt-pump2-300.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/H230A.html

Assuming timer was installed correctly ... did timer work when first installed, and then die?
This timer cannot be exposed to freezing temperatures because the battery will die in cold temperatures.
Ei600 timer is 5-year warranty version of ST01C timer, and both have same wiring and same battery.
Copy following link to see programming, wiring, and battery replacement
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

If cold battery is problem, suggest using GE 15312 timer from Home Depot that has same 100' maximum and same load rating characteristics and same programming capability as Ei600 and ST01C, but GE timer is powered by the circuit and not a battery.

You can install timer yourself.

I've installed a 60-minute Woods timer 12842 (digital) in my garage but it switches itself off prematurely over and over. I notice when it is on the little green 10min timer light clicks & dims ever so...


Open following link to identify timer for sure, download on-line manual, and read wiring instructions.
ttp://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59000

1) Manual says 1000Watt Tungsten (incandescent) and 1000Watt Ballast (fluorescent)
2) Timer is powered by electric circuit and not internal battery, so cold garage temps will not affect operation
3) Check wiring against instructions shown on link above, except your other timers work fine, which indicates correct wiring.
4) Buy cheap circuit analyzer at home center, and test receptacle on same garage circuit
5) Try moving known-good timer to same location and see if problem persists.
6) I test timers, and some in-wall and plug-in timers arrive defective, and some go bad quickly, most have 1 year limited warranty, some last 5-7 years.

1st Question: Can Woods timer model 16ULD/3A be used for Christmas light timing? The timer is in the garage not exposed to water at all.


I am unable to identify the 16uld timer.

Amazon has a page of their timers. I am familiar with all of these.
http://picclick.com/Amazon/Home-Improvement/Electrical/Timers/

Woods timers and manuals show on following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

If you can visually identify the 16ULD timer, then add a comment and I can answer your question.

That being said, any timer can operate Christmas lights.
If your timer has photoelectric eye, then it has to be placed outside where it can respond to dusk and dawn changes in light.

But there are some Woods timers that have photoelectric eye, and that feature can be overridden.
Again it depends on the timer, and clear identification would help numerous folk who are asking fixya about your same timer.

Christmas lights not working, please help me solve it


Depending on the type of lights you have, there may be an in line fuse in them, or if one bulb is loose or burned out they all go out. Check along the wiring for a in line fuse holder first. If not it would be a matter of checking all the bulbs.

Your issue is as follows;
"iI HAVE A DRYER 4PRONG POWER CORD \. HOUSE OUTLET THREE PRONG NEDD TO CHANGE POWER CORD.DRYER INSTRUCTION CONNECT 4 TERMMINAL.WHAT HAPPEN WHEN CONNECT THREEN TERMINAL."

A 3 prong cord should be wired as follows:

1. 1 end of cord connects to 1 outside terminal.
2. The other end of the cord connects to the remaiing outside terminal.
3. The center wire connects to the center terminal.
4. A separate ground wire should be attached from the dryer chassis, then to a metal cold water line, or an exterior grounding rod.

In an effort to improve the quality of my answers, please show your appreciation by rating my solution.
