Question about Timex Heavy Duty Appliance Timer

Open Question

New Timex timer model 12-881 runs only for an hour or so on manual over ride and shuts off. Why?

If I put on manual over ride it shuts off after an hour or so. It's not conflicting with set times as I unset them all. I tried unplugging the unit, setting the correct time, plugging it back in and runnung the manual over ride and it still seems to shut it self off. I see nothing on the scant directions on the unit that would indicate it is designed to run for only 2 hours on manual. Did I get a bad unit or is it just cheap?

I do not know how to set it. i have lost the instructions for a 111woods model tn300


Woods timers sometimes have more than one number for same timer.
This is true for most brands of timer.
Companies change model numbers and add new model numbers.

Intermatic makes two different analog timers with 111 model number. TN111 and HB111.
Grasslin has older electronic timer Tactic 111
Timex sells TE111 timer.

Open following link to identify TN300 analog timer and read instructions and download possible manual:
If TN300 is not same as your timer, view images on link and then add a comment for possible help with different timer.

I have a timer TX12674T im trying to reset the time by holding time and hour the screen resets itself to 12:00 any combination will rest the screen. what to do?


Timer is not identified.
My files, and web search do not show TX12674T timer, Aug 2011.

1) Add a comment with in-focus photo of your timer posted on flickr for possible identification.

2) I don't have repair for defective timer: What does your instruction manual say? Did timer work before and stop working? Are you using timer for correct Load? Try timer on different outlet and with different Load. Test outlet with circuit analyzer. Timers usually come with 1 year limited warranty.

3) Maybe you have TX12874X. This timer is reset by holding down Hour and Minute button.

4) Open following link to identify timer and download possible manual:

I can not reset my Timex timer . The timer stopped working after a month and the instructions to not help in programing these timers


The instructions will help quite a lot right now:

1) Typical Timex manual says to re-set timer, press MODE and PROG buttons together.
Compare this information with your instructions.

2) Look on instruction sheet for timer model number, and then add a comment with your model number so I can identify timer manual and possibly post answer that fits your product.

3) Look on instruction sheet for company information.
Timex timers come with standard 1 year limited warranty:
Following phone might work: 1-800-919-3101

4) Scan your instruction sheet into jpg format and then add a comment with link to that jpg, then I can give you best answer for that specific timer.

5) Buy another timer, and return broken timer in new package.

6) Use circuit analyzer to test outlet for line noise and ground fault that affect timer electronics.

7) Buy another brand of timer altogether:

LOST THE SETTING INSTRUCTIONS OF MY TIMEX MODEL NO. 12/874 (TX12874X)


I couldn't find a manual for your Timex, but here are the setting instructions:

Clear the timer by pushing hour and minute at same time. To set current time, hold time button down and push hour. Then hold time button down and push minute.
To set the time for light to turn on, hold the ON button down and push hour until it gets to the hour you want it on (same for Minute). To set time for light to go off, hold the OFF button down while you set the hour and minute.
