The instructions read
Begin with all of the segments pushed up
Push down the segments for the required "on"? time, each segment represents 1 hour
Rotate the dial clockwise until the "Time Now" is aligned with the pointer
Plug into outlet; plug appliance into timer

It looks similar to a timer i have for my fish tank. On the dial i have there are little black nodes and if you push them down for the time you want the timer to be on eg, a light to be on between say 8am and 5pm, then push down the dials from the 8 to the 17, using the twenty four hour clock. Once plugged in to a socket that is switched on all the time the dial will make sure that the plug put into the timer will only come on between the hours you stipulate. This is how my own plug works and so i hope this will help you. ElleLainey x

How to set time on Yardworks two zone water timer


Copy following link to access manuals for each brand of water timer on market 2013:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#sprinkler
Yardworks does not have website, manuals or warranty claim procedure.
Instead, yardworks repackages other brands of timer, generally water timers, such as orbit or melnor and raindrip. And sometimes repackages other brands of outdoor timers.
Recommend folks stay away from timer-repackagers such as Yardworks, Timex, First Alert, and buy brand names that have clear customer resources.

The "F" LED remains on and I'm unable to get it to change states by depressing the settings button. This has happened on two of the units that are both less than 6 months old. Any ideas?


Copy following link to identify timer, and find comparable product that might last longer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#2001

Check output voltage at outlet using multimeter. Should be minimum 80% rated value or 110Volt outlet = 88 volts
Check outlet with circuit analyzer for correct polarity and grounding.
All timers come with 1 year limited warranty, in this case it will be through seller because first alert does not show timers on their website.
Don't buy First Alert products.
They are generally cheaply made promotional grade timers.
I recommend Intermatic HB61RC or Woods 49103 or Intermatic HB65R because their products are good, and warranty policy is direct from company.

The timer will turn on-off according to preset schedule
