SOURCE: how do I set the ge timer model #15119. husband

I tried to pull the whole dial and doing that I discovered that the border of the dial is composed by pins that you can pull it up each independently, with your nail or with any pointing device. The rest is easy: get sure the switch is set at "timer on", turn the dial to the current time using the black triangle mark and pull the pin up in the time you want your device to disconnect.

SOURCE: i have ge model 15119 24 her timer and need help

GE 15119 timer is a 24-hour plug-in dial-type timer.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Plastic segments located around outer edge of dial control on-off operations.
Each segment represents 30 minutes of 24-hour day.

Timer comes with segments down.
Each segment can be lifted up using small screwdriver under edge of segment.

Segments down, timer is ON.
Segments up, timer is OFF.
So if you want timer to turn on at 7pm and turn off at 11pm, then lift all segments around dial except segments between 7 and 11.


Dial is divided into two parts > day and night.
Nighttime hours are shown by numbers with dark background >> notice small crescent moon where 12 midnight is located.
Daylight hours are shown by numbers with light background, and sun symbol shows at 12 noon

To set current time, so timer knows what time it is right now:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.

There is override switch located on one side of timer.
Move switch to Timer ON position and timer program will function.
If you want to turn lights ON using override switch, move switch to OUTLET ON.

Last steps:
Turn lamp on.
Plug lamp into timer.
Plug timer into wall.

I need to reset the timer on my 633T Krystal Clear pump as we have unplugged the power and we can't get the timer to work.

You know the timer can only be programmed once and it is 24 hrs after the last time it ran. So turn it on at the exact time of day you want it to run every day, set the dial to how many hours to run and walk away. It should start up automatically 24 hrs later each and every day (as long as you have the on switch set to the timer position)

Hotpoint Glasstop Stove - Burner turns on by itself

I have a GE stove which I purchased in 2004, and it is doing the same. I heard beeping coming from the kitchen in the middle of the night . I went to the kitchen and the oven was on by itself. I have been unplugging it when not using it. Maybe this could be a recall.
