How to set the clock using 24 hr and 12 hr clock


Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#oval
Add comment and describe timer in detail.
Usually if a timer offers choice between 24-hour clock with 1-thru-24 displaying for current time, vrs 12 hour am- 12 hour pm, then the choice is first thing you set before programming. The choice is made before setting current time, and usually this is accomplished with single button push that toggles between 12 and 24 on the display.
The product manual has specific steps.
Not every timer offers 12-24 choice.
Again, add comment and describe timer in detail, or attach photo for best available resources.

Some timers let you select hours of operation once timer turns ON at dusk.
Each timer is slightly different, depending on brand, type, and if timer is digital or mechanical.

What is a minimum timer setup


Question is not clear, timer is not identified.
Add a comment with in-focus photo of timer posted on flickr.

Minimum on-off time for digital timers is usually 1 minute.

Minimum on-off time for plug-in-type 24-hour analog timers is 1/4 hour or 1/2 hour depending on width of tripper-pin-segment.
Minimum on-off time for plug-in-type 7-day analog timer is usually 3 hours.
Plug-in vacation timers are set for random on-off and cannot be set.
Minimum on-off time for box timers with 24 hour dial and wide tripper is 1 to 1-1/2 hours
Minimum on-off time for box timers with 24 hour dial and narrow tripper is 1/4 hour.
Minimum on-off time for box timers with 7-day dial is usually 3 hours

Time setting does not function. Clock doesn't cycle. Manual on/off functions and appliance turns on


As a general rule, if the timer clock does not rotate on plug-in-timers and in-wall-timers, then the timer has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

A larger box-type timer that attaches to the wall is different. For many of the box-type-timers, that are mechanical and not electronic, the clock motor can be replaced.

How to program a woods TD1000 indoor timer


Here's how to set Woods TD1000 timer

This is older timer with backup battery. Plug in timer to see if battery will work. Display shows when battery is charged. No display, then timer is no good.

TD-1000 timer has 8 on-off functions per 24-hour day ...newer timers each offer 7 day function with choices of each-day, week-day, or week-end programming. The wider choices with newer timers may explain why TD1000 instructions are hard to find

Timer has 5 buttons + reset:
TIME MODE PROG HOUR MIN

Set time
Press and hold TIME > use Hour to set hour, Min to set minute
Release Time button ... correct time should show

Program: Capacity for 8 on-off times per day
Press PROG to set first ON time
ON and number 1 are displayed on left
Use hour and minute button to set ON time

Press PROG to confirm
Now, OFF and number 1 are displayed
Use hour and min key to set OFF time

Press PROG to confirm

When 8 programs are set, Press MODE key.
Choose Manual OFF. Manual ON, Auto ON, Auto Off

To use programs, select Auto ON

DST daylight savings time has to be done manually.
Press HOUR MIN button simultaneously > timer set up one hour
Repeat again and timer goes back one hour

Do not plug timer into extension cord > must be plugged into wall

Can i use the timer for a water headter to trun on and off


Paragon 8145-20 is a 240V defrost timer
It is probably not best choice for water heater timer
Timer initiates defrost cycles each 4 hours.

A water heater timer should have more scheduling options.
-For example estimates show average run-time for water heater is 3 hours per day, depending on incoming water temperature, thermostat setting, and number of gallons used.
-To save money using water heater timer, you have to schedule times carefully so water heater runs less than 3 hours per day.
-Now your average electric water heater heats about 20 gallons per hour.
-Average shower uses 4-9 gallons hot water, so water heater needs to run 15-30 minutes (15 summer, 30 winter)
-Average bath uses 12-15 gallons hot water so water heater runs 45-60 minutes
-But lets say you run water heater for 1 hour and make 20 gallons of hot water. Then you take a shower, expecting hot water to remain in tank.
-Here's the problem ... cold water entered the tank to replace the shower water ... and the new cold water is cooling the rest of the tank.
-So a timer means scheduling hot water to match shower and bath events. For example taking shower and bath in immediate succession.
-Or set the timer for each individual hot water event ... for example set timer for 1/2 hour for shower, and later timer turns on 1 hour for bath, or 1-1/2 hr for 2 baths, etc
-> The flexible programming described above is not a characteristic of defrost timers.
I suggest Intermatic WH-31 240V or Intermatic T-104 240V or GE 15207. These are mechanical repeat-24 hour timers with manual override where each day has same schedule.
Digital programmable timers like Intermatic EH40 offer 7-day, 40 event programming. Weekends and weekdays can be different.
