1) Copy following link for correct wiring and programming.
Always reset digital timers before programming to clear stray memory:
Timer must be wired correctly.

2) Each ON setting requires OFF setting, and days for each must match.
This timer does not show rating for inductive loads such as CFL or LED.
Timer is rated for resistive loads such as incandescent bulbs.

3) Buy Intermatic ST01C timer, or GE 15312 timer for inductive loads.

4) Add comment and describe situation in more detail, Dec 2013

SOURCE: I just installed a new intermatic T101 timer, the

By chance did you connect both the incoming and outgoing white (neutral) wires together without also connecting them to the "A" terminal? If so, untwist them and connect both of them under the "A" terminal. The timing motor will not work if the "A" terminal is not connected to a neutral.
With the circuit energized from the breaker, you should be able to read 120 volts from the "A" terminal to the #1 terminal.
Also, check to make sure the yellow dial is pushed in and set to the correct time.
Otherwise the timer is defective and a return to the store is in order.

The wiring for the T101 is as follows:
Connect _both_ the incoming and outgoing neutrals (white) wires to the "A" terminal. The incoming [(LINE) (hot) (from the breaker or source)] black wire is connected to the #1 terminal and the outgoing (LOAD) black wire is connected to the #2 terminal.
Both of the bare or green wires are twisted together along with a 6 inch or so pigtail using a red or yellow wire nut. The pigtail is then connected to the green "GR" screw on the enclosure

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.

Timer wiring instructions shown on following page:

You connected the white wire and red wire together, and that is why lights are clicking on-off.
I test timers and have done this intentionally during testing.
Follow instructions shown on link above, and GE timer will work correctly.
Same wiring applies to Tork, Swilight, Utilitec, Woods, Leviton, Intermatic non-battery operated timers.
Instructions are different for Aube, Brinks, UPM and Intermatic battery operated

Pushed reset button and will not respond. Red on light stays on

Copy following link for Utilitec LW60418 timer.
Same as Westek TMDW10, and Stanley 30418

This timer is reset with one-button.
Unlike some timers that require 2 button push.
Push in reset button firmly with paper clip, and hold for several seconds. Repeat.
This action will clear timer memory.

If reset does not restore functionality, then timer could be bad.
This timer has 1 year limited warranty.
Suggest buying new timer at Lowes, and returning defect timer in new package.

I have a Utilitech In Wall Digital Timer Lowes Item #: 141224 | Model #: LW60418, purchased from Lowes. I've lost the instructions and can't figure out how to set the timer after a power...

Open following link for Utilitec timer manual:

This timer should have a back-up capacitor so that programming is kept in memory during power outage.
Power outage is known cause of timer failure. When power turns on, the surge knocks out electronics.
People writing to fixya report electronic timers and electronic water heater controls stop working after power outage. Probably many other electronic devices are affected too, but that would be out of my specialty.
Troubleshoot says 'in case of operational failure, press reset button to clear all settings and restart.'
If timer has failed, buy another from Lowes and return defect in new package.

1) Sounds like you have timer wired correctly.
The wiring is confusing for many people, so it's apparent you're a quality electrician.

2) There are no repairs for defective timer, but timer can be reset using reset button.
Reset will clear program conflicts and overlaps that cause timer not to operate as expected.

3) Model number of Utilitec timer is not given, so expert has to guess which fork in the road you want to choose.

4) If you have 0192773 timer and want do-it-yourself solution, open following link for larger print and photo illustrations that make programming easier.

5) If you have 0141224 timer, then open following link for larger print instructions.

6) At any point, you can add a comment and ask very specific question about any part of the instructions for either in-wall Utilitec timer, or any Utilitec timer, or ask a question about almost any 60Hz timer on the market today.
That comment sends an e-mail, and then I will respond.
I have tested both Utilitec in-wall timers.

I put in a Utilitech 01411224 timer.Can the timer be set to come on at 9;00pm off at 6;00 am each day? Do you need to hook up the ground?

Open following link for programming and wiring instructions:

Yes, the timer can be programmed to turn on at 6am and off at 9pm all days of week.
The ground is not necessary for timer to function, however other wiring has to be correct, and white wire connects to neutral, black wire connects to Hot, and red wire connects to wire going to switch.
Timer replaces single-pole light switch only and cannot be used for 3-way switching.
