Question about Coleman Cable Outdoor Easy Set Timer #4604

1 Answer

Resetting outdoor light timer

So I bought an intermatic outdoor timer with a photocell that auto turns it on at dusk. And it worked really good on Saturday. I did a test and set it to shut off in 4 hours which it did. Then yesterday I changed the setting to 6 hours but must have confused it because I did or didn't do something right because it stayed on all night. I guess maybe I need to shut it off, replug it in then reset the time and plug in the lights?

I would unplug the timer. Change the setting to 6 hours then plug back in.

    How wiring intermatic timer t51211bc i have one circuit control by timer ....and one circuit contro by photocel indor lite and outdoor lite


    T51211BC is 120Volt timer that can be wired many different ways because there are two internal relays, and each relay has NO and NC terminals. One relay is controlled by timer dial trippers, and other relay controlled by dawn-dusk photo eye

    Timer wiring cannot be fully explained with words.
    Below is basic hook-up for your 120Volt wiring application, and then you can use a tester and experiment with the knob settings, and tripper settings.
    http://www.intermatic.com/products/ec%204%20layer/mechanical%20time%20switches/24%20hour%207%20day/t50000%20series%207-day%20time%20switch.aspx

    1) You have 4 cables:
    one cable from circuit breaker box;
    one cable going to photo control;
    one cable going to outdoor Load (lite);
    one cable going to indoor Load (lite).

    2) Cable from circuit breaker has 2 wires:
    Black Hot wire connects to terminal 1
    White Neutral connects to terminal 2
    This will power the clock motor and timer relays.

    3) Photocell has 3 wires:
    Black connects to terminal 1
    White to terminal 2
    Red to terminal 3.
    Photocell turns relay on-off for Circuit B
    Do not mix different size wires under same screw terminal, or smaller wire will come loose over time. Also do not mix stranded wire and solid copper under same screw terminal for same reason.

    4) Terminals 4 thru 12 are 'dry'.
    Dry terminals receive no power when power is applied to terminals 1 and 2.
    To put power on dry terminals, so that Load will have power, attach Black hot wire from breaker to terminals 9 and 12.
    So add a jumper wire from terminal 1 to terminal 9 and another jumper wire from terminal 9 to terminal 12.
    120Volt power is now connected to terminals 1, 9 and 12

    5) Circuit B is dawn to dusk for outdoor Load.
    Outdoor load cable has Black and White wire.
    Connect outdoor Black wire to either terminal 10 or 11.
    To test which is correct for your application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 12 and 11, and across terminal 12 and 10. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B to each position and repeat test.
    Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

    6) Circuit A is Dusk ON and timer OFF
    Indoor cable has Black and White wire.
    Connect indoor Black wire to either terminal 7 or 8.
    To test which is correct for application, set switch to Auto, and then test across terminals 9 and 8, and across terminal 9 and 7. Repeat test after dark. Rotate knob B and repeat test.
    Connect outdoor White wire to terminal 2, and this will complete the circuit.

    Can I use outdoor timer indoors.Its a dusk to dawn timer but no lights will be on


    If outdoor timer is programmable, and does not turn ON automatically at dusk, then timer can be used indoors.
    If outdoor timer is activated by photo eye, and turns ON automatically at dusk, then it cannot be used indoors, because the timer turns ON when it senses darkness.

    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 set it and can I use it indoors?


    I see nothing in the manual that says 'outdoor use only' EXCEPT timer runs on photoelectric eye.
    Timer turns ON automatically at dusk, so if timer is inside, and indoor lights are ON, then timer stays OFF.

    HB51R is "on" all the time, regardless of control setting kenlarson42@hotmail.com


    http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/electromechanical%20timers/hb51rc.aspx

    HB51 appears to be an automatic timer
    Capacity is 1000Watts
    Your lights are on so the circuit has power
    I don't see any troubleshooting steps
    It gives you a choice how many hours your lights stay on after dusk

    You might try changing the selector to a different stay-on hour.
    Turn timer off and unplug and then re-plug timer to see if it re-sets.

    Otherwise, it looks like the photocell or 'timer brain' stopped functioning.

    If you want timer to turn ON immediately and turn OFF 6 hours later, push button until 6. shows in display.

    If timer does not display or does not operate correctly, then timer is suspect. Return timer for another one.
