Check the venting for your dryer. Most "auto dry" features are controlled by a thermostat that is in line with the timer motor. If you have a gas dryer especially, a clogged or obstructed vent will stall the auto dry feature. If you can provide the complete model number, I can provide more insight.

Setting the clock on a brinks timer 44-1011


I finally found the instructions for the Brinks timer 44-1011 and they work.
    • BRINKS DIGITAL TIMER 44-1011 INSTRUCTIONS

    • 2*Press +/MANUAL or - to select the hour. Press OK to confirm.
    • 3*Minute display will now flash. Press +/MANUAL or - to select the minute. Press OK to confirm.
    • 4*Press MENU to exit the time setting mode. Now the timer is in clock mode.
    • PROGRAM SETTING NOTE: This timer can be set up for up to 2 different programs. We will use PROG 1 for this example, however these steps can be repeated for any of the 2 programs. To cycle through the individual programs use the +/MANUAL or - after pressing MENU in step one until the desired PROG "#" is flashing. To clear a program setting hit the RECALL button when you have the program selected.
    • 1*Press MENU button, PROG 1 "ON" will flash, press OK.

    • 3*Turn off DLST, +1H will disappear and LCD shows the real time. MANUAL OVERRIDE AND ALWAYS ON/OFF When in clock mode the +/MANUAL sign cycles through
    • 4 settings that serve as manual override. **ON - Indicates that the timer is in the ON mode, and will always be on regardless of the programmed setting. **AUTO ON - At this selection, the timer will come on regardless of the programmed setting, but it will follow the next programmed command. **OFF - Indicates that the timer is always off (i.e. the wall socket is turned off) **AUTO OFF - Indicates that the timer is in the OFF mode until the next programmed step that turns it ON.
    • NOTE: For normal timer function, the selection must be either "AUTO ON" or "AUTO OFF". RESET At any mode, press RESET for 5 seconds. All settings will be cleared, return to clock mode, 12:00 MO, AM, AUTO OFF will be shown on LCD
I hope this is helpful. It was a bear to find.

Problem of Utilitech digital 8 outlet power strip timer


Copy following link to identify exact timer, and download possible manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#striptimer

With this particular timer, press MODE and PRG button to clear timer programming.
When programming is complete, press CLK button to enter current time setting and end programming.
Then press Mode button until Auto indicator displays.
Make sure current time is correct, and that correct am-pm selected.
Make sure that on-and-off programs are set for same days-of-week, or conflict will cause timer to work erratically.
If timer is defect, buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package.

I have the timer programmed but what mode should it be in Off, Auto or Random? I had it in Auto but the timer did not start at 10 am as programmed! Help!


HB88RC is discontinued timer, replaced by 2-outlet HB800RCL or 1-outlet HB800RCH.
Timer functions should work in AUTO.
Try resetting timer by removing AA battery, reinstall fresh battery, and then reprogram timer.
When programming is finished, press clock button and timer should be in AUTO mode and current time displayed.
If you want to change mode, then press mode button. When exiting mode, press clock button and timer should be back in AUTO mode.
If functionality does not restore, then timer has gone bad.

Resetting the timer for Auto


Open following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Hamilton

I do not know how to 'reset timer for auto'
The reset button is small round button with R

Manual says: "ON/AUTO/OFF" override. Press "ON/AUTO/OFF" or the
button with the "HAND" symbol to force the timer into permanent
"ON" "AUTO" program or permanent "OFF" mode.'

When within the programmed window (preset time period),
cycle through "ON/AUTO/OFF" button to "ON" mode
(indicated by lighted red LED above display), and then
"AUTO"

I have not tested this timer, but the manual sounds vague and confusing, leading me to believe you have to tinker around with the buttons and settings to make sense.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Also 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.

You may need to replace the timer, but watch the video below and it will walk you thru the troubleshooting process. The timer not moving in the "auto sense" mode maybe due to a bad thermostat. Here is a link to the timer in case you need it.

Have the timer set on Auto but lights are not on during the ON period. Also do I need to set times for all 7 periods?


No, you do not need to set all 7 timer events.
When event1 ON and event1 OFF are set, press CLOCK button to exit programming and save programs. Or press PROGRAM button and move to event2 ON and event2 OFF. Exit programming any time by pressing clock button.
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20outdoor%20timers/digital%20timers/hb88rc.aspx

That being said, if events conflict with each other, timer will not operate.
For example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF all-days at 11pm.
The days have to match for on-off times.

Another example event1 ON FR at 7pm and event1 OFF FR 11pm, but event2 ON all days 8pm event2 OFF all days 10pm. This overlap will cause timer to skip programs.

If timer is being used in random mode, timer programs cannot be closer than 1/2 hour apart.

When programming is done, press clock button to display current time.
Timer should be ready to go.
Manual is fuzzy at this point, and does not specifically say, but it appears that you only press MODE button when you want to set another mode beside auto.
I e-mailed Intermatic last week about this unclear spot because several folks are writing in about this timer not going into correct MODE after programs are set.
MODE must be set to automatic
Press MODE button once for manual override function
Press MODE again and RDM displays for random >> this is for lights turning on randomly when on vacation.
Press MODE button third time, and AUTO shows on display >> you want timer in AUTO for timer programs to operate.
Here's the trick ... after setting MODE to auto, press clock button to display current time

If timer will not enter AUTO, then timer is defective.
If Intermatic sends response that is pertinent to your question, I will post again on this thread.
Add a comment any time, and I will respond.

My auto function on my GE outdoor timer didn't work orginally. So, I programmed the "on" time to be 5 minutes from the current time (10:15 p.m.), and the "off" time to be the time I wanted (10:30 p.m.). Then I put it on automatic and waited for 10:15 p.m. to arrive. It turned on. Then, I set the "on" time to 5:30 p.m. and it works fine now. Apparently, it has to cycle through the "on" time in order to activate the auto function.

I programmed the timer to go on and off at a specific time and it doesn't work. The time of day and the date are working fine. It is only programmed for one light.


To program the ST01C:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

ST01C manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-st01c.pdf

1) Manual has troubleshooting. Since ST01C is battery operated, it will not work on loads farther than 100 feet away from timer. If a wire is buried underground, this can interfere with operation. Other electrical devices can interfere with timer operation.

2) Solution:
a) Check for interference issues listed above.
b) Press MODE and make sure it is set to AUTO. If timer will not enter AUTO then no program has been set.
c) Re-check your programming as shown in step 6 of manual. Remember timer offers 40 programs. To set Program 1 >> 'on' time has to be entered and saved for Program 1 >>> and then 'off' time has to be entered and saved for Program 1. And then press MODE and set to AUTO.
