SOURCE: I bought a utilitech three

I bought one also but am taking it back today as I am not satisfied with the performance and the internal battery dies losing all programming. The instructions below are word for word from the manual but not all that clear. Since I can't post the diagram from http://www.thencc.com/westinghouse/LS/Instruction/T28499_TimerManual.pdf (if I can post links here), I substituted words in the "Set Mode" section instead. This is for the Utilitech 0149289 model and also applies to the Westinghouse and Stanley equals. Good luck.

Manuals for both types appear on link below

Timers problems


The lights are leaking power to the ground or to water nearby. When this happens the breaker trips to stop you losing more power. Look at the wires for the lights are they damaged, or has water got in anywhere?

MY BREAKER BUTTON WILL NOT RESET ON 2 TIMERS AT THE SAME TIME?


You posted under Intermatic plug-in outdoor timer.
If I understand correctly, you have two of these timers plugged into outdoor outlet, and the breaker for this outlet will not reset.

Cause can be 3 different problems
1) Load exceeds breaker capacity. Add up total watts and divide by 120V to see if breaker amp size is correct.
2) Loose wire or short in timers, outlet or wires going to Load. For example a broken outlet, or loose wire inside outlet box, or extension cord is under snow or water. Unplug everything, including timers, and try re-setting breaker again. Plug everything back in one at a time to observe when breaker trips.
3) Bad breaker: Move breaker wire to another same-size breaker and see if problem contuinues.

If this is not your timer, add a comment.

A number of folks are writing in about dusk-dawn-timers flashing.
The manufacturer suggests turning photo-eye away from all lighting when installing timer.
Always aim photoeye toward dark region of yard.
I would unplug the timer and let it reset.
Try timer again, turned away from lights so there is no feedback.
Put black tape over photeye and see what happens.
If timer still doesn't work, then timer is defective.

Maybe photoeye circuit was overwhelmed by intense light converted to electrical input.
I test timers, and 4-6% arrive defective, and most last just a season or two, and then you buy another, but the price is affordable.

Local Home Depot sells the GE 15107 outdoor yard stake or wall mount.
I bought one tonight for testing.
It has no photo eye
It has a dial timer where you set exact on-off times by moving plastic segments on dial perimeter.
For example set timer for ON at 5:30 and OFF at 6:00 am depending on your latitude north or south.

Put black tape over photo electric eye and see if lights stay on without blinking.

Dusk-type yard stake has photo electric eye, which is visible as round glass ball.
Lights from circuit can cause photo-eye to think it is daylight, so circuit turns OFF.
Moment later, photo-eye thinks it's dark and lights click back ON

Usually 6-outlet yard stakes have 4 top outlets controlled by timer.
Normally bottom 2 outlets are ON full time.
Make sure bottom outlets are not blinking also, which implies problem with outdoor circuit or basic timer problem.
Check circuit with inexpensive circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department.

Photoelectric eyes go bad easily, but usually they don't blink.
They stick ON or OFF.
