    I have the same problem and can't find anything on Intermatic's website. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem with the intermatic timer - the time of day arrow moves along with the entire dial, and I don't see how it can be set at time of day!

    Thanks for the posting, I have checked those directions as well, but they are the same ones the timer comes with. I have been doing exactly as you and the directions say and it does not work.

Yay!!! I found out the solution, and I tried it, and it DOES work!
I got these instructions from Intermatic Technical Services. I e-mailed them with my problem and they finally got back to me.
Follow them exactly and you will have no problems!
1) Pull up all trippers.

2) Push down the tripper at the time you want the light to turn on

3) Push down the tripper at the time you want the light to turn off

4) Push down all trippers for the duration of your on time

5) Set the current time of day with the time of day arrow

6) Plug in your lamp and make sure the lamp's switch is in the on position

7) Set the slide switch at the top to the timer position

If this does not help, please contact technical service by phone at 815-675-7000, option 1 then option 2.

This is what worked for me!!!! Finally!!!!!!

1) Push all trippers up
2) Set time of the day
3) Push tripper down from when you want it to go on
4) Push tripper down from when you want it to go off
5) Push down trippers in between the on and off trippers
6) Set the top swicth to the "timer on"
7) Plug in your lamp or christmas lights into the timer (make sure lamp is on the ON switch)
8)Plug the timer into wall socket

Try this link.

Make sure all the pins are up. Then set the dial to current time of day. Then push in the pins of the times you want it on and off. Plug it in th esocket and plug in light/device to be controlled.

Sounds like when the internal motor runs around, each time it hits a set point it alternates between on/off. If you have two points set it will go on/off once per 24 hour day. Four will give you 2 on/offs per day.

I do not know how to set it. i have lost the instructions for a 111woods model tn300


Woods timers sometimes have more than one number for same timer.
This is true for most brands of timer.
Companies change model numbers and add new model numbers.

Intermatic makes two different analog timers with 111 model number. TN111 and HB111.
Grasslin has older electronic timer Tactic 111
Timex sells TE111 timer.

Open following link to identify TN300 analog timer and read instructions and download possible manual:
If TN300 is not same as your timer, view images on link and then add a comment for possible help with different timer.
