Question about Woods Hardware & Accessories
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:
2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
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.
