Manual says 'tappets are pre-set to off-peak.
However if you want different time, move tappets outward.'
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Ecosave-Product-manual.pdf

Timer dial is ordinary 24-hour analog.
You can remove glass cover, and manually rotate the dial around and observe what happens to get best idea how you want to set timer.

Set current time by manually rotating dial until current time lines up with winter or summer time arrowhead

SOURCE: I have a Orbit 57161

Manual:

Website:
http://www.orbitonline.com/products/Timers/02/01/19/671/
Tech service 1-800-488-6156
Timer has 4 year warranty

The manual has troubleshooting

Looking through the manual I can see potential trouble areas:
-Water pressure too high > 60 psi is ordinary household pressure > order Brady BTG pressure gauge that connects to hose
-Overlapping times are 'stacked' by timer ... but 'more than one start time' is listed as cause of stations turning on when not supposed to >> reset and re-program timer, make chart of on-off times
-Weak or missing AA batteries >> clean terminal inside timer and replace batteries
-Hard water deposits or unfiltered water clogging water valve (water softeners frequently have this problem) >>> see if vinegar or CLR cleaner can help flush water valve >>> add sediment filter in front of timer
-Look at screen > does display show Manual? As in manual mode2322052.jpg
-Fuse blown
-Bad solenoid
-A combination of problems listed above with sediment -or- solenoid as main suspects

4 station timer help


Copy following link to help identify timer:

Most major brands are linked here, including manuals for each.
Some brands such as yardworks, etc, repackage other brands and have no online support or clear resolution for warranty claim.
Open link, then add a comment with brand and model and voltage so expert can access same manual.
Replace battery. Reset timer. Check if unit is getting power. Check if outlet has correct polarity. Are some basic troubleshoot steps.
Most timers have 1 year limited warranty, and timer that came with used house may no longer be functioning. Or the sprinkler hear has gone bad.
For replacement, I think Intermatic mechanical sprinkler timers are better value than digital timers, since the mechanicals have repair motors and trippers and can last 25 years.

Off peak hot water not heating!!! :(


The Economy 7 can control different types heater. Some heaters do not have off-peak ... but you can solve problem..
Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/QE7-INSTRUCTION.pdf
If timer is wired to two different elements, then the night rate element or off-peak element might be burned out. Test element with multimeter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
Also this timer is wired so either Off-peak is getting power or Boost is getting power, but not both at same time.
If heater has off-peak element, then there will be a wire connected to terminal 5, going to heating unit.
If there is no wire on terminal 5, then there is no off-peak element, or wiring has not been connected. However you can change the timer function by moving wire on terminal 4 to terminal 5. Then only the off-peak timer function will operate, and not the boost.
You can also fool the timer, by setting time clock differently. Instead of setting timer for current time, rotate the dial and fudge current time by 10-12 hours so water heater thinks it's time for boost, but the actual time is during off-peak hours.
If terminals 4 and 5 both have wires, then either the element is burned out, or the timer has malfunctioned. Again, you can fool the timer by setting current time differently, and solve problem.

Grasslin ecosave timer not working


Add a comment and say if the timer worked before and stopped working, or if this is new installation that does not work correctly.
Otherwise the timer expert is guess that the problem is incorrect wiring, defective timer, tripped circuit breaker, or if the clock motor has gotten weak over time, and stopped working.

Or, Contact Grasslin UK:

Creda storage heater manual


I'm not a heating expert, but according to the information I could find, Economy 7 utilizes cheap electricty at night, during off-peak hours (7 hours) between midnight and 7AM. Economy 7 costs about 4p per unit compared to peak electricity, which is about 10 to 15p per unit. If you do not have Economy 7, you can request it FREE of charge from your electricity provider. You will either have one meter with two readings or two separate meters. A two tariff electric meter will record the electricity used during off peak times, so it can be billed, separately, at a lower rate. If you have two meters, one meter controls on peak daytime electricity and the other controls your night time economy 7 electricity.

I would need to know what model Creda heater you have installed in order to determine how energy efficient it may be. I also will need the model so I can determine operating instructions. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps.

Hi how do i set the the 59200 timer for indoor use. does it matter if you use the nos on the white side of the dark side of the timer? im not following the instructions. how do u know how many pins to...


Each pin/segment represents 30 minutes.
To set timer for 2 hours, move 4 consecutive pins/segments up or down.
For 8 hours, move 16 consecutive pins/segments
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Raise-segments-240.jpg
Dark background for numbers are usually 'night' or 6pm to 6am.
Timers usually have am and pm printed on timer dial.

Atlantic azurea 100T - extractor fan - how do I adjust how long it stays on, I have one that the previous owners of my home put in and it stays on all the time. Please let me know! Thanks, Laura


Hi Laura,

There are many auto timer enabled extractor fan's available in the market but it could cost you more, therefore I would recommend an alternate solution for you.

All you need to do is replace your fan's switch with an auto timer.
For e.g. An auto timer which will switch off your fan after the desired time automatically.

Examples of an auto timers can be found on these links :- http://bit.ly/kUNC4x

http://bit.ly/kJPprC

So when the timer goes off , the fan stops by itself , and you don't have to worry about it any more.

Or you can get a new extractor fan with timer as well , check out an example in this link :- http://amzn.to/jybLfl

If you want to know how to install a bathroom timer switch , please follow this link :- http://bit.ly/lN7p67

Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated , let me know in case you have any queries.

Find Grasslin timers and manuals at following link:

I am familiar with Grasslin timers, and you can add a comment with specific question and I will respond.
