SOURCE: Woods In-wall Timer Heavy Duty, Model #59018 -- I

Quick answer:
1) Programming steps say 'press clock key to return to current time and day'
2) Use mode button and change between AUTO & RND >> try manual override in each mode
3) Does timer turn lights on-and-off with program, or do they blink too?
4) Swap Black and Red wires
5) Try timer on light in different room, on different circuit breaker
6) Timer might be defective

Longer answer:
Woods 59018 manual does not show troubleshooting steps except 'check wiring; switch Red and Black leads; and/or reset programming'

Seems unlikely you could program timer unless timer is wired correctly ... unless there is a short of some kind.

To review wiring.
Green goes to bare ground wire.
White goes to Neutral white wire (neutral is usually 2 or 3 white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box)
Black must connect to Hot from circuit breaker
Red must connect to Load (light, fan, motor etc)

How to test wiring
:
Disconnect timer and set aside.
Mark each wire
Separate wires in box so they don't touch
Use ordinary tester (you can tape tester leads to wood sticks)
Turn on power
You should have two black wires that were originally connected to switch
Test black wires to bare ground > when tester lights up, that is the Hot wire.
The other black wire goes to Load

Now you want to find the neutral.
Test the Hot black wire to white wires in box.
When tester lights up, that is neutral.

If everything checks out, I guess timer is defective.

SOURCE: need instructions for setting Globe

Use the on/off button to cycle through in the following order:

F = off

0 = on

1-9 = Number of hours unit stays on after detecting 15 seconds of low light

R = Random. After detecting low lux for 15 seconds, unit will select random number of hours to stay on. Will repeat randomization cycle in 24 hrs

d = On from dusk til dawn

1.-9. = (number followed by period) On now and will shut off after the indicated number of hours elapses.

Neat little timer. Have fun with it.

Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or pen to set timer on-off functions.
With GE timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.

Manual ON/TIMER switch located on inner dial.

Set override to timer for program to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.

Hi,
From what you are saying, the switch went bad and that is why it is not working and turning on...
For the price of a new one, it is not worth trying to replace the switch...
I would just get a new timer and replace it... they are not hard to replace...just keep track of where the wires go so you can get it hooked back up again..

My ge model 15117 heavy duty timer will not go off in the auto mode. I changed it from auto to off to turn my pump on and then went back to auto and now did not turn off when timer expired


I cannot repair defective timers, and there are complaints about this timer's MODE button.
Most people complain they can't get mode to set.
Avoid the MODE button after programming timer.
Reset the timer by pushing CLOCK PROG MODE buttons. Then re-program the timer per instructions, and then press CLOCK button to exit programming and timer is in Auto mode and ready to work.
No need to press MODE after programming timer.
Typically, this timer has limited 1 year warranty.

http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/GE-15117-Manual.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15117
15117 is not heavy duty timer. Both outlets combined are rated 1000 watts incandescent and 1/4 HP. Check nameplate on your pump for HP rating.

For limited-lifetime-warranty timer, rated 1/3 HP, choose Intermatic HB800RCL 2-outlet timer.
Cost twice as much as GE 15117.
For 1HP outdoor pumps choose Intermatic P1121

I just installed a Wood 59018 timer, and when i try to turn it on manually, I hear the relay click on and then immediately off (the attached light turns on and off too). That's when the switch is set...


Timer is wired wrong and timer white and timer red wires are probably connected together.
Timer white wire has to be connected to white neutral wires that are twisted together and shoved to back of box. This will power the clock mechanism inside timer.
If box does not have white neutrals, then connect timer white wire to bare ground wire along with timer green wire.
Timer black wire connects to Hot wire.
Timer red wire connects to Load wire.

I need instructions on how to program my intermatic timer 1076311. It's a two button timer.


The Intermatic outdoor timer 1076311 is Intermatic model HB65R.
It has two buttons, TIME and MODE and a digital display.
Instructions:
1. Plug in the timer, which self-tests. If error, EE flashes.
If normal, 88 flashes for 3 seconds, then display shows C and you can proceed to set the timer.
2. Push the TIME button to set C (current time) AM hours 1-12 and PM hours 1. to 12. (Example: for 7 AM push the TIME button until the display shows "7" for 7 PM push the TIME button until the display shows "7."
3. Now push and hold down the MODE button until the display shows P for the "ON time."
4. Push the TIME button to set the hour to turn ON, from AM 1 to 12 or PM 1. to 12.(Example: if you want the power on at 7 PM repeatedly push the TIME button till the display reads 7.)
5. Push and hold down the MODE button until the display reads E for "END time" (time you want the power OFF)
6. Push the TIME button repeatedly to set the end time hour from AM 1 to 12 or PM 1. to 12. The time off will display.
7. Press the MODE button to toggle between ON and the current time.

If you unplug the timer you will have to reset the C (current time), P (ON time) and E (END or OFF time).

Lost instuctions to program Model N1560 Noma outdoor timer


Use the top button to adjust the current time & then push the bottom button once to save. Next is the time you want the lights to turn on & push bottom button once to save. The last setting is the time you want the lights to turn off. Don't forget to use the . (period) indicator for the pm setting. (I had the same problem and had to search the net to find someone else who had posted the instructions.)
