Manual and automatic mode

I want to use the timer in Manual mode and Automatic mode when needed. I can't seem to see that there is this type of option. I assumed it would have these features.

    Thank you, but this timer works differently. It has three buttons verses the large button. I see no manual or automatic buttons in this model.

I believe if you hold down the large button with the circle on it for a few seconds, it will operate in manual mode. If you just push that button once, it will turn on manually but only till the next programmed hour, then it goes back to automatic.

Well that is amazing that if the button is held it does actually work on this model too. It takes about 4 seconds and a black dot appears and over rides the mode. Excellent advise sparky 2021.

Reprogramed utilital in wall timer 0141224 can-not get it into automatic mode

Jan 2013
1) Copy following link for large instructions, and correct wiring step by step:

2) Reset timer before programming to delete trace programs from factory testing.
Make sure there are no conflicts in programming, such as overlaps or inconsistent days of week for ON vrs OFF times. Make sure each ON has OFF.
Use 11:59 instead of 12:00 to avoid confusion.

3) This timer has 1 year limited warranty.
Buy another timer from Lowes and return defect in new package.

I am trying to charge my cars battery but I am not sure where to put the 3 way switch.

Best solution is to use the Auto mode, since the unit will monitor the battery, and automatically switch to trickle charge when the battery is full. In the Auto mode, it won't overcharge the battery.

For GE- 15117, Mode acts as a controller called "an On or Off override..." "or sets events to Automatic or random" Random = a +/- program shift (that's understandable). You'd think...

I cannot make precise sense of your question.
However I agree, the manual for GE 17117 is not clear.

1) A number of folks are writing in about this particular timer, with same MODE problem as you.
Some folks, the timer skips over auto.
Some folks the timer just doesn't come on.
Facts are facts, some timers are busted on arrival.

But let's look at the problem from three different directions and see if it helps:

2) Steps from manual:
When you finish programming, press clock button to return to current time.
Next set MODE.

Press MODE button and timer enters override ON-OFF. Override reverses whatever program is operating at that moment.
Press MODE button again and timer enters RDM random mode, and lights turn on-off randomly.
Press MODE button again and timer enters AUTO >>> auto is correct setting that lets programs run.
Here's the trick: after setting MODE to auto, press clock button again and current time displays.
If timer will not perform these steps, then timer is suspect

If timer performs these steps, but programs won't work, the timer is suspect or programming is suspect.

3) Check programming for conflicts and overlaps that cause timer not to function 'as expected.'
Some timers skip over conflicting programs, some timers simply stay on, others stay off.

Example of conflict is event1 ON at 7am TU > but event1 OFF at 11pm All-days. Both event1 ON and OFF events must have consistent days >>> so change TU to All-days.
Another example is event1 ON 7am OFF 11pm TU >> but event2 says opposite, or has overlapping times.

I suggest folks make a schedule of programs before starting.
To review and change programs, start with current time showing in display: Press PROG button and scroll through event1 ON, event1 OFF, event2 ON, event2 OFF, etc.
Write down the events and make a chart.
Look for overlaps, and check for days of operation, and make sure each event ON has corresponding event OFF

4) If events are correct, and timer MODE button functions, but timer still doesn't work, the final suspect before calling the timer busted, is circuit problem. Use circuit analyzer on receptacle. Or plug timer into receptacle on different breaker and see if problem persists.

I have set program 1 on and off times and program 2 on and off times but do not know what mode to choose to get it to work!!

People are writing in with problems about HB88RC.
Problems seem to revolve around MODE button and setting automatic for timer to operate programming.

One guy said his timer skipped over automatic.
Another fellow today reported that timer programs would not work.

So maybe your timer has similar problem.
I'm going to e-mail Intermatic with recent information.
I need clarification on your exact question.
Intermatic generally e-mails back and is concerned with their products and customers.

That being said, let's look at your timer problem.
When you finish programming 1 and 2, press Clock button to exit programming and current time shows on display.
At this point, timer should function.

According to manual:
If you press MODE button once, timer will enter override, and lights will turn on.
Press MODE button again, RDM shows on screen and timer enters random mode and lights turn on-off randomly so it looks like folks are home.
Press MODE again and timer returns to Automatic and programs 1 and 2 should run.

Add a comment and let me know what is happening so I can report to Intermatic.
I will post results on this thread.

I have a HB88RC Intermatic 7 day / 7 event timer. I have followed the "easy set instructions" I have program 1 set to turn on X-mas lights at 4:30 PM and go off at 11:30 PM. For all seven...

Just program it as noted previously and put the timer in Auto. Set the clock to 1 min BEFORE your earliest timer program is set to come on. When the clock hits the correct time, it will turn on. Then set the clock to the correct time and you're golden.

Lets run through trouble spots others have with programmable timers:
Add a comment any time and I will help.

What we know for sure:
-Battery is working because display shows.
-Manual override works, so basic electricity is OK and light is OK

-Common programming problems:
-You set current time and it shows in display > if current time is not set or does not advance with passing time, then timer does not know when to turn on-and-off. Double check display for current day, hour, and minute.

-Each event has ON time and OFF time. So you set event1 ON and then set event1 OFF. For example some people set ON time and don't realize each ON needs corresponding OFF, or can't find how to set OFF. Trick is making sure timer display matches fig3 and fig4 shown in manual. Press PROG button until display shows 1ON for event1 ON and then press PROG button until display shows 1OFF for event1 OFF.
-To review programs and double-check, press PROG button repeatedly to scroll through programming. Check for ON and OFF days, and for overlapping on-off commands.
-Event1 ON and event1 OFF should be set for same day(s). For example event1 ON is set for Tuesday but event1 OFF is set for All-days (instead of Tuesday) will conflict and timer will not function.
-Conflicts in programming will cause problems. Conflict example: Event1 says ON 7pm OFF 9pm Tues, but event2 says opposite.
-Make schedule of on-off times before programming to avoid conflicts.

Setting Mode:
MODE is manual override button: press it to set Automatic, ON-OFF override, or Random
Press MODE button until RDN displays in upper left corner, and then press MODE one more time to enter AUTOMATIC >>> you want automatic for programming functions.

Circuit analyzer: If above items check out 100%, and timer still doesn't work, plug timer to indoor plug on another circuit (not on outdoor plug). This will check if outdoor plug has electrical problem interfering with electronics inside timer. Buy cheap plug-in circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department and double-check circuits.

Review of steps:
The AA battery is installed with correct polarity
Timer blinked 12:00
Set clock while holding down clock button

Press PROG to display EVENT1-on (there is a tiny 'on' that shows on display)
>day button selects day, weekday, weekend
>> hour minute buttons to set ON time for EVENT1

>Press PROG so display shows EVENT1-off (ther is a tiny off that shows on display)
>repeat steps above to set OFF time for EVENT1

>Press PROG until EVENT1-on shows in display
>repeat steps to set on-off times for EVENT2

> when finished programming, press CLOCK

> Last step, set mode
MODE is on-off override
MODE is also Automatic or Random

Solution ideas:
Press MODE until Automatic displays)
-Press MODE key to see if manual override works
-Look at digital face (or take photo of it) and compare with Figs shown in manual to see if there is a match

-Check breaker. Check light bulb. Remove timer and see if load works without it. Check that light switch is turned on if plug is controlled by light switch.

-Review programs: Push PROG key to review programs
-Other timers ignore conflicting schedules ... for example EVENT1 says ON at 7 and OFF at 8, but EVENT2 says opposite, or overlaps, then timer ignores programming

-Reset timer and repeat programming: Press CLOCK, MODE PROG to reset timer
-Make a chart of your EVENT1 on-off times, and EVENT2 on-off times, EVENT3-7 on-off times before programming to make sure there are no conflicts.
