First Alert Timer ET220

How do you set it? We want to use it for indoor christmas lights as soon as possible.

I can't find any instructions online (lots of links to spyware, but no legit sites)

First Alert doesn't seem to have any instructions on their site, just features and pictures.

    Easiest to follow, but haven't succeeded so far.

OK, try this.

Remove batteries for a minute or two to clear memory. Replace batteries.

1. Plug into wall
2. Hold down ON button for 5 seconds to turn on
3. Rotate timer to correct time, hold TIME SET button for a few seconds until the light flashes
4. Rotate knob until first desired on time. Hold down ON button
5. While holding ON/OFF button rotate timer to desired off time, then release ON/OFF button.
6. Repeat 4 and 5 for second time
7. Plug in lamp and test.

I think that's close, I'm testing ours tonight.

Remove the button cell battery holder.
Look inside the space, where the holder was.
Negative is on the right and Positive is on the left.
It is shown, but is very hard to see.
