Manually turn the dial pass the red pointer. that shoudl shut-off the light.
if not, you have a defective timer.
if it does. follow the instruction set the gree pointer for the time to turn-on and set the red pointer to the time off.
turn the dial one or more revolution till the arrow head in the center align with the time of day in the center windows.

Wickes 7 day digital timer. I can set the time and date, but how do I set the timer?


1) Copy following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-consumer-timers-and-manuals.html#451

2) Don't forget to press reset button before starting to clear memory traces.
Each program must have ON and OFF time.
After setting current time, and pressing SET button, it appears you press the A+ button until 1 and ON show on display ... this is program1 ON.
Then it appears you press SET button and days of week will flash for Program1 ON. Cycle through choice of day(s) you want for program1 ON.

Do I set the GE timer # 15089 to Auto on or Auto off for it to be activated. I had it on Auto on however the light stayed on all the time.


I don't have repair for defective timer.
Open following link to identify timer and download manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15089

Timer should be set to Auto ON for timer programs to run.
Auto OFF is temporary override, and timer resumes schedule at next set point.
ON is always ON
OFF is always OFF

If timer is not operating as expected:
Test outlet for correct polarity and electrical problems using cheap circuit analyzer from hardware store.
Timer programs can have conflicts. Make schedule before setting timer so there are no overlaps that cause timer not to function as expected.
Current time has not been set. Set current time including current day.
Set button has been accidentally pushed, and a number or CTD appear in display.
Timer needs to be reset to clear conflicting programming or error. Push reset button with paperclip and try programming again.
Timer is not able to handle intended load. All timers work for incandescent bulb. Connect timer to incandescent lamp and see if problem continues.
Timer is defective. Buy another timer from Home Depot and return defect in new package.

I have a Westek indoor digital timer, i have a nano tank with 2 lights (moonlight, daylight). I"ve tried setting the timer for 7 days with each light on at different times, it just won't work.Though...


http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#TE05W

You want to control each light with different programming?
Westek TE05 timer is single-channel timer, so different lights cannot be controlled by different programs.

You need a two-channel timer so each light can come on at different times.

Zilla timers are two-channel timers: yellow outlets for daytime, and blue outlets for nighttime.

I cannot set my GE timer--15119----I have no instructions and have tried many times---I can't believe how difficult this timer is to set----


Here's what I found.
Pull up all of the little pins around the dial.
Push down all pins for the time that you want the light to stay on.
Leave pins up for all time that you want the light to stay off.
Rotate the dial to the current time of day.
Plug timer into wall.
Plug light into timer.
Ensure light is ON.

I've set the time on/off and ive tried turning on manually but the lights wont turn on on exact time set. y? when i manually turn on the lights come on 2 hrs later or so, y doesnt it turn on right away?


If I understand correctly, you have an Intermatic timer.
The timer has a yellow dial that rotates around like a clock.

Does the manual override work?
If yes.
a) then the circuit has electricity
b) the lights are in working order

Does the clock rotate?
If yes
a) then the timer is probably good
b) the clock motor could be bad
c) the gears could be rusty and dirty

Do you have the current time set correctly?
Lift and rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

Do you have the trippers set on the correct time?
There are ON trippers and OFF trippers
Attach trippers to correct time
Tripper pins wear out

Suggestion: You sit in front of the timer and watch the trippers as they rotate to the bottom of the dial
When the trippers get to the bottom, they push a lever that turns lights on and off.
Look at the photo:

Here's a website that sells tripper pins and clock motors for Intermatic timers.
You can buy new trippers or clock motor

Can't seem to figure it out. Directions are not specific enough. We set "the time now", but the white/AM, dark/PM is weird. Please help w/ directions. We need the light for chicken house. Light on 5:00 AM...


What kind of Woods timer do you have?

Is the dial turning? The dial is the clock. And the clock needs electricity to work, just like alarm clock. If dial is not turning, the wiring is not right.

Does the manual override turn on the lights? Maybe the slider switch set to OFF? Set slider to "Timer" for timer functions to work.

Wall timer:
If you have 59017 wall timer, it has dark PM white AM. You rotate dial until correct time lines up with little triangle located on right side of center knob.
7e3b45a.jpg

There are 48 plastic pins on dial ... when pins are moved out, the lights are off. For timer functions, set slide switch to 'Timer'
Correct wiring is needed for timer to work:
Timer black attaches to Hot wire from breaker box
Timer red attaches to wire going to Load (lights)
Timer white must attach to white Neutral (or if your box has no neutral, connect white to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground

If wiring seems right but dial on front of timer is still not rotating, then reverse Timer red and Timer black and see if that sorts out problem.

If this is wrong Woods timer, please re-post question.

..not able to set timer to come on and go off a certain time


the pin for the timer and be any color.
if you have the pin in the right place, and turn the timer dial to the time you plug into the wall and turn on the black switch on the side. it shoud work.
check the timer after couple of hours. and make sure the timer is running correctly.
chances are there is a flat spot on the timer. it stops at a certain spot.

hope that helps

i've install many automatic lights- none of them work 100% There are patterns with most of them (flip switch on,off,on) to make lights on constantly, but they should all turn off when you turn the switch off.
