Intermatic model HB65R has two buttons, TIME and MODE and a digital display.
Instructions:
1. Plug in the timer, which self-tests. If error, EE flashes.
If normal, 88 flashes for 3 seconds, then display shows C and you can proceed to set the timer.
2. Push the TIME button to set C (current time). The display shows AM hours as 1 to 12 and PM hours as 1. to 12. (Example: for 7 AM push the TIME button until the display shows "7" for 7 PM push the TIME button until the display shows "7."
3. Now push and hold down the MODE button until the display shows P for the "ON time."
4. Push the TIME button to set the hour to turn ON, from AM 1 to 12 or PM 1. to 12.
5. Push and hold down the MODE button until the display reads E for "END time" (time you want the power OFF)
6. Push the TIME button repeatedly to set the end time hour from AM 1 to 12 or PM 1. to 12. The end time (time power will go off) will display.
7. Press the MODE button to toggle between ON and the current time.

If you unplug the timer you will have to reset the C (current time), P (ON time) and E (END or OFF time).

I am trying to program a Westinghouse yard stake. It's a model 28006, hinge top, 6 outlet digital photo cell. Please help if you can.


1) Copy following link to help identify same-similar timer and download possible manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#outdoor

2) On-line search shows dawn-dusk timer which can be set to turn off 1-9 hours after dusk.
Typical operation is to push button until 6 displays, then timer turns ON at dusk and OFF 6 hours later

3) Describe timer with more detail so expert can exactly identify timer functions and find same-similar manual.

I can set the date & time and sunrise and sunset; however, the instructions to program are obscure to me. I want it to come on at dusk and go off at a set time.


1) Question posted under ST01C
Open following link for ST01C instructions with programming illustrations, plus wiring illustrations and battery information.
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

2) The ST01C cannot be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time.

3) If you have different timer than shown above, then add a comment with description of timer buttons for possible identification.

4) I have not tested the following timer, and it may be same as all other in-wall timers, but it is possible that the new GE 15312 sun-smart timer can be set for on-at-dusk and off-at-programmed-time. BUT I am only reading the instruction manual for a new product, before people write the company and then the manual gets changed.
Wiring for this timer is more complicated that ST01C
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15312-sun-smart-Manual.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15312

5) There are numerous outdoor plug-in type timers that offer on-at-dusk, and then off 2 4 6 8 hours later.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#2001

6) Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Outdoor lights timer: Intermatic HB851 photo timer with dial. How do I set it for dusk ON then off in 8 hrs.


Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.
To set for ON at dusk, and off 8 hours later, rotate dial to the number 8.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk.
Timer set to 8 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 8 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on again.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 8 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 8 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until dawn.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

How do I get it to start at dusk and run for 4 hours


You posted under Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

To set for ON at dusk, and off 4 hours later, rotate dial to the number 4.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk because timer has photo eye.
Timer set to 4 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 4 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 4 hour countdown.
A car pulling in driveway can cause feedback.
If timer resets because of feedback, it begins 4 hour countdown again, so lights will not turn off until much later than planned, or not turn off until dusk.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

I bought a utilitech three outlet outdoor timer and cannot get it to set. Now I cannot seem to find the instructions that came with it. Where can I download the instructions?


I bought one also but am taking it back today as I am not satisfied with the performance and the internal battery dies losing all programming. The instructions below are word for word from the manual but not all that clear. Since I can't post the diagram from http://www.thencc.com/westinghouse/LS/Instruction/T28499_TimerManual.pdf (if I can post links here), I substituted words in the "Set Mode" section instead. This is for the Utilitech 0149289 model and also applies to the Westinghouse and Stanley equals. Good luck.
