Question about Woods Hardware & Accessories

1 Answer

Problem programming timer settings. Is it supposed to be random or continuous?

Woods Model 50001 Indoor 24-Hour Mechanical Timer 3-C. I am trying to program this to come on at 4 pm and off at 11 pm. That's all! Instead it is coming on "around" 4 pm, seems to randomly turn on and off until it finally turns off "around" 11 pm. There is nothing in the instructions that says there is a random setting, and the packaging does not say anything about random settings. Why is it doing this??

1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006



2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html



3) 50001 timer is not random vacation timer like the 50003.
50000 series timers by Woods have 1 year limited warranty, and they are a new design released this year. However the analog timer design has been around for many years.


4) If timer is acting randomly, then
a) timer is defective,
b) the override switch is not fully positioned at 'timer on,'
c) segments are not lifted fully in position,


5) ... other more remote causes: outlet might not test 80% rated voltage?, outlet might have reversed polarity?


5) Try timer on different outlet with different light.


6) As the timer dial rotates, the segments push small lever, and the lever moves switch that turns lights on-off. I suppose if this lever was broken or switch was broken, then timer would act more randomly.

Need help programing lllwoods model 50000 indoor 24 hour mechanicl timer 2-c


Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50009
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006

If you have the digital timer, generally you can toggle DST back-and-forth 1 hour by pushing two buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. And then reverse the setting again by pressing and holding both buttons again.
Open link. Download manual. Look for 'daylight savings time' in manual. Read instructions.
You can unplug timer to make programming changes, since the timer has a carryover feature against power outage.
To restore functionality of a timer that no longer works, press reset button and then reprogram.

The Woods 50000 series are new line of timer introduced just before Christmas 2012.
Woods timers are warranted by Coleman/ Carol Cable/ Canadian tire, and I suspect the timer itself is made by Intermatic.
All these timers have standard 1 year limited warranty against workmanship defects.
I have not seen any complaints about this line of timers here at fixya.

Lost instruction for operation of woods indoor digital 24 hour timer (59203)


1) Copy following link for possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Oval

2) Don't forget to reset timer to clear traces of prior programming.
Timer has internal rechargeable battery that eventually gives out, rendering timer useless.
Timer has 1 year limited warranty through Coleman.

3) Suggested replacement timer: Woods 59009, 59008, 59007.
Two prong and 3-prong outlets, rated for CFL LED incandescent etc
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50009

4) Or buy timer locally for ez return if timer does not work.

5) Jan 2013: Best brands for warranty support are probably Woods, Intermatic, GE, Tork, Sylvania, Leviton.
Promotional-grade timers from First Alert, Timex, Brinks, Stanley-Westinghouse, Utilitec etc may not have clear on-line warranty support.

I'm using the woods 59200 mechanical timer to automatically open and close a chicken coop door. I can't for the life of me figure out how to set it. Help!


Woods 59202 is 7-day analog VACATION timer and cannot be set.
Vacation timers are preset to turn on-and-off at random times so it looks like somebody is home when you are away.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59202

You might want the 59201 analog timer which can be set for on-off times over 24-hour period. Minimum on-off is 15 minutes.
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ

If you need a 7-day timer, buy a programmable instead of analog. Wooods 59377 or Intermatic DT630 heavy duty
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59377-Digital-Appliance-Settings/dp/B000IKQRTU

If you have analog plug-in timer, open following link to see how to set timers:

I have woods lighting timer model 59200 and can not program it. every I set the time according to the instruction light stays on. What I am doing wrong?


See Woods timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Are you sure about that model number?
59200 is a plug-in dial-type timer.
Timer does not have a light.

The dial is rotated to set current time.
And segments located around dial are pulled up and pushed down to set timer function.

How do i program the 24 hour timer by woods?


You posted under Woods indoor plug-in 24-hour mechanical timer.
This particular timer:
Rotate dial until current time lines up with words: 'time now' located on inner dial
To set on-off times, look carefully at dial that rotates.
There are tiny pins that stick up on the dial.
Each pin represents 1/2 hour.
Use fingernail and click pin outward for each half hour you want timer ON
Leave pins inward for each half hour you want timer OFF
Next, plug table lamp into side of timer.
Last step, plug timer into wall outlet.

If this is not your timer, see all Woods timers and manuals:
Or add a comment and I will help.

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 recharge. 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 offer 7 day function with more programming choices... which 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
