Segments can be pried up using fingernail file.

Sometimes the segments also pull outward and not straight up.

SOURCE: We can't figure out how

Hi Joy and Fred.
You posted under Woods outdoor timer, but don't give specific brand or model
Open following links for detailed information and illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59383

Segments are usually on outer edge of dial.
Some timers the segments lift up, some push down, some pull up and out, etc.
Use a fingernail or small tool and fiddle around with it.
Some timers have pins located on dial face that click inward or outward. Use small tool and move them in and out.
Some timers have trippers that you attach to outer edge of dial.
If you are confused, open links above for illustrations.

After moving some segments-pins. Plug lamp into timer.
Turn lamp on. Plug timer into outlet.
Manually rotate timer dial and watch how lamp turns on-off.
Move timer switch both directions and manually rotate dial to see lamp turn on-off.
These tests will show you how to set pin-segments-trippers and switch for your specific timer.

The timer dial rotates as time passes. The dial is a simple clock that rotates because of a clock motor.
The dial causes segments-pins move small lever that turns lamp on-off.
Just like any clock, the correct time has to be set. To do this: rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.

For more information, add a comment with in-focus photo of your timer.

The segments lift up as you discovered.
Lift up about 10 consecutive segments and then manually rotate timer dial and watch when lamp turns on-off.
I think the problem you describe results from lifting only one segment, instead of all segments between the on-off times.

The dial rotates as time passes, and pins-tabs push tiny switch one direction or other direction, and switch turns light on-off.

I was looking at GE timers at Home Depot tonight.
Timer ON is correct setting.
Segments up should be lights off.
You lights turn ON with outlet on, so lamp, bulb and electricity are good.

Troubleshoot your timer:
What happens when you manually rotate the dial clockwise?
Do lights turn on and off at scheduled times?
Move override switch both directions and rotate dial manually with switch in each position.
Are the segments pulled all the way up?
If lights do not respond when dial is rotated manually, and segments are all the way up, then timer is broken.
If lights turn on-off with manual rotation, then check if clock motor is rotating dial.
If dial is not rotating, then timer is broken.

The way these timers work is this:
Timer clock with plastic gears rotates dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Plastic arm rides along outside edge of segments. See photo below.
When segment is pulled up, plastic arm clicks inward via spring action.
The moving arm opens electrical contacts that turn lights OFF.
If dial is not rotating, or the spring is worn out, or the plastic arm broken off, or the contacts fused together, or override wire is disconnected, then timer is broken.

I test these timers.
4-6% arrive defective, and most last 1 or 2 seasons and then they break.
But they are priced low and easily replaced.

I cannot figure out how to set my outdoor timer to control my Christmas lights. How do I set the pins?


There are 4 basic pins/tabs/segments for timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs

Pins move back and forth
Segments lift up
Segments pull out
Segments push down

Each type of pins/segments are located on dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
The pins/segments contact on-off lever and cause lever to move.
Lever movement opens and closes electrical contacts.
The little plastic parts and motors wear out.

Make sure pins/segments are pushed all the way into place.
Check override switch is clicked to TIMER
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead marker
To check operation of timer, manually rotate dial to watch lights turn on-off.

Troubleshoot:
Lights must be on.
Bulbs are good.
Receptacle has power.
Check timer in different receptacle.
If dial does not rotate or pins/segments don't turn lights on-off, timer might be bad.

Where are the "never-lose pins"


Woods 59204 manual says pins, and I think the timer has tabs or segments instead.
These are located on the rotating part of dial.
Look at pictures on following link to see 4 basic pin-tab-segment layouts that are used to turn these timers on and off: It's likely that your timer will be one of these.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs
Some timers have pins that click in and out
Some have segments that pull up
Some have segments that pull out
Some have segments that push down
Add a comment any time.

The phrase 'never-lose' means the pin-tab-segment is permanently attached to the timer dial.
Older timers, and many box timers have loose pins or trippers that you attach to the timer dial ... and of course people lose these trippers and are constantly searching for their model number of tripper which is not available. And some of these older timers were expensive. For example the older style malibu power packs have trippers, but when the tripper wears out, there are no replacements and power packs are expensive.

How do you pull the pins up to turn timer off?


You posted under Woods 59204, but Woods makes different timers with same number and others timers with multiple numbers
If this is not your timer, add a comment
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59204.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59204

Manual for 59204 says segments are located around edge of dial.
Pull segments out with fingernail or small screwdriver to set on off times.

Here are some photos
There are two 2 basic types: Pins and segments

geno_3245_152.jpgTimer pins flip in and out using fingernail.

geno_3245_153.jpgTimer segments lift up using small tool or fingernail

geno_3245_154.jpgSometimes segments pull outward away from center

To check timer functions after setting pins or segments,
manually rotate dial to and watch lights turn on and off

Where are the pins on the 59382 outdoor timer


The 'segment pins' mentioned in manual are tiny segments located around outer edge of dial.
There are 4 segments per each hour.
Each segment represents 15 minutes.

Use small screwdriver or fingernail to pull segment up.
When segment is up, timer is OFF
Leave segment down, timer is ON

Timer is 500 Watt.
Timer handles maximum 20 strings of 50 mini-bulb Christmas lights

How do you set the timer


You posted under mechanical outdoor timer with time dial located on face.
If you have different timer, add a comment.

Instructions:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
There are segments or pins located around outer edge of dial.

If timer has segments.
Pull these segments outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Pull out a few segments and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with segments out.
Then pull out segments for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

If timer has pins.
Click pins outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Click out a few pins and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with pins out.
Then pull out pins for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

Some timers also have an override button located on inner dial or somewhere on body of timer.
Move this switch to TIMER or AUTO, depending on your timer

I can't find the pins that the instructions refer to.


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

1) You posted question under Woods 59383 which has segments located around edge of dial.
These segments are pulled up to set OFF times.
Segments are left in down position for ON times.

2) Other Woods timers have tiny pins that stick up on the dial.
Pins are located on part of dial that rotates.
Get your glasses.
Run your finger across the dial and you can feel tiny metal pins that stick up.
Dial has 48 pins. Each represents 1/2 hour.
Use fingernail to move pins outward from center of dial.
Pins out = timer ON
Pins inward = timer OFF

Below are 2 EXAMPLES of Woods timer showing pins and segments

The instructions indicate to push the outer segments down with pen, etc to set timer. I can't get the segment to go down.


Generally the segments are already pushed down when you buy timer.

Instruction usually say, pull up all the segments, and after pulling up all the segments, then push down the segments for the hours you want the timer turned OFF or ON depending on timer
