    We also cannot get our timer to work. It keeps displaying no O P. problem, and notify you when a new solution is offered.

    The on/off times doesn't work. It works manually only. I have been unable to reset the unit to start all over.

    Same problem. Also have problems with "low battery" flashing, even with new batteries. Have had to replace these timers before after power outage -- I'm about over it!

It's the simplest possibility, but do you happen to have compact fluorescent light bulbs in the light? They are not usually compatable with timers.

Utilitech In Wall Timer Part # 0192773. I just installed 3 of these on my home and one of which the blue backlighting in the display stays on constatntly. Any idea how to make the one back light time out...


1) I have tested this product:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

2) Reset timer, and reprogram.
If functionality is not restored, and backlight does not automatically turn off, then timer is defect.
3%+ all consumer timers arrive defect out of package, or last less than warranty period. Some work for a few years, some last many years.

3) This timer, like most timers, has 1 year limited warranty against workmanship defects.
Buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package.
Contact internet seller for 30-day exchange policy.
Otherwise I do not know who carries the warranty contract ... which means buying timers at local box store is better warranty value.

I need to find instructions on how to reprogram an Intermatic indoor wall timer.


You posted under ST01C Intermatic battery operated timer.
If you have different timer, then add a comment.

Let's review ST01C timer for a moment.
Programming will stay inside timer memory indefinitely until timer no longer works.
Even if battery is removed, programs remain. Current time setting does not remain in memory.
If battery goes dead, then current time will disappear, but programs remain forever.

If previous programming was correct, you might only need to set current time,.
In that case, you do not want to 'reset' timer and clear memory.

If you want to clear old programming entirely, then you can 'reset' timer using following instructions.
Press and hold on-off button, and then use paper clip to push in reset button for 3 seconds.
Release reset button but keep holding on-off button until INIT displays momentarily.
Release on-off button.
If display does not show, then timer battery is bad, or timer is bad.

For instructions how to set current time, click link below.
In addition to current time, the link has ST01C manual and also has EZ to follow instructions and photos for setting on-off times (but not astro times)
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

Instructions are different for astro dawn to dusk.
Add a comment at any time if you need free help with specific steps in the manual.

If you do not want to read the manual or open a link and read the steps or add a comment for further free help, then you can pay a fixya expert for phone support and that person will walk you through the steps while on the phone.
Keep in mind that ST01C timer has 1 year limited warranty, and your timer might be broken.
In that case you should try the free steps first.

1 Answer

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.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf

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 a Malibu ML88T timer on the garden lights. I guess the power pack is running can turn lights on off manually but the timer doesn't turn them off or on. Can this be repaired?


Is the timer wheel rotating - keeping time?
If so, are there pins for the wheel?
The other option is to purchase a photo sensor and let your lights stay on from dusk til dawn. The benefit of this arrangement is that as dusk changes across the seasons and daylight savings time, you don't have to keep adjusting on/off times.

On the model that I have you set the time by pulling the dial out and turning it to the current time.  If it does not "seat" fully when you release the dial it will not engage teh timer gear.  Make sure it is seated by trying to move it slightly in both directions.  If it turns frely it is not seated.  If there is some resistance (don't force it) then it is seated and should keep correct time.  If you have moved the manual lever to the ON position and the lights still do not work you need to make sure the power to the time clock is live.  The timer motor (and the lights) will not work if the power supply is off.  If the power is on and the lights still aren't working on Manual then there is a problem beyond the time clock (broken wire, burned out bulbs, etc.).
