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.

See GE timers on following link to identify timer:
Link has instructions plus large image you can see segments lifted up and pushed down
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#GE510N

Timer knows when to turn lights on-off because segments are lifted up or pushed down.
Push/lift a few segments.
Turn lamp ON
Plug lamp into timer.
Mover switch to Timer ON
Plug timer into outlet.
Manually rotate dial clockwise to see lights turn on-off.
This will show if segments should be up or down.
Set segments for ON OFF times.
Rotate dial until current time lines up with pointer.

My power strip, that I paid good money for about 7 years ago, is now vibrating and making a noise during the night time. Obviously, this is when it is not in use and does not seem to have the problem...


Question posted under analog power strip.
Analog timer has small clock motor.
When the plastic motor gears wear down, the clock begins to make noise.
Might not hear the noise when TV is turned on.

To get analog timers to last longer, be sure to keep timer in dust-free environment so nothing clogs the gears.
I don't know how to take apart this timer without breaking it.

Hey im having a problem, basically all im trying to do it make it so my heat lamp turns on only at night, so, i set my time to the correct time right now and then i pressed prg, set the days (everyday)...

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Zilla-digital-manual.pdf
1) There is no repair for defective timer.
According to manual, under Initial Timer Operation: yellow outlet is ON at 4:00 pm.
Make sure Mode button is not set to OFF.

2) Scheduling timer: Think about the zilla timer this way:
Day is 12 hours and night is 12 hours.
Your total schedule is only 9 hours, but it overlaps day and night.

If timer 'night' starts at 6pm and ends at 6am, then your programming overlaps day and night.
If timer 'night' starts at 12midnight and ends at 12noon, then your programming still overlaps day and night.

3) To solve zilla time problem, set current time differently.
4) Or buy GE or Utilitec 24-hour programmable power strip

How do I work a GE 24-hour timer? There were no instructions. I don't know if I'm supposed to have the lamp turned on or off in order for the timer to work.


Yes the lamp must be turned on.
Bulb must be in working order.

If link above does not show your timer, then add a comment

The GE 15004 timer does not have a manual at Jasco, so many folks write in about this timer

To set the timer, rotate dial until current time lines up with pointer located on inner dial.
The trippers are located on outer edge of dial.
I'm am guessing that you move the trippers around to time, and then push tripper inward or outward.
I have looked at enlarged photos of timer but cannot say exactly how the tripper is set.
Green tripper is ON
Red tripper is OFF

There is a switch located on side of timer.
Move switch to ON for timer to operate.
Plug lamp into timer.
Plug timer into wall.

To check on-off settings, manually rotate dial clockwise with your hand and watch lights turn ON-OFF.
Check switch is supposed to be set ON, by moving switch both ways.

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.

I set the timer for 6 hours, it went on at dusk but it blinks instead of staying on.


Two things can cause problem.
1) defective timer
2) feedback from nearby lights

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 6 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 6 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until much later, or at 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 to set a GE outdoor timer product ID 51587 ?


GE 51587 has same instructions as Tork 601A single-outlet outdoor 24-hour mechanical timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf

Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or pen to set timer on-off functions.
With GE timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch located on inner dial.

Set override to timer for program to operate.

Have GE digital timer 15117. Can't figure out how to make the display show AM/PM so I can set it correctly. Clock hour/min just cycles through 12 hours without noting AM or PM setting. Can't program...


GE 15117 manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

You might try a new AA battery.
Some guy wrote in this week and said he bought 6 timers and all the batteries were bad except 1.

Some timers, like Woods TD1300, and others have the 12 hour or 24 hour option.
You press and hold Time button to choose 12 hour or 24 hour
But GE 15117 manual says nothing about this option.

GE 15117 timer is same timer as Woods 59403
Several folks have written in past couple weeks about the Woods 59403 timer skipping over functions.
The best I can guess is your timer is malfunctioning like the other people's timers.

Woods 59403 manual is identical to GE manual, and says nothing about 12 hour 24 hour option either
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59403.pdf

I test timers for programming and wiring difficulties.
Yesterday 3 timers arrived here, and 1 didn't work.
I took it apart and tested the electronics, and something went bad.
When these timers don't work, you get your money back or throw them away.
