    I have the manual and followed the wiring instructions. The manual also states that if the timer is nonfunctioning that I should switch the bloack leads. I will try this but the timer is actually working, but not correctly.

  • Gene Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    So the dial is rotating? And the pins are set correctly? And current time is set? And slide switch is moved to timer position?

  • Joseph Wolfe Jan 22, 2013

    I am not sure if the dial is rotating. The pins are set correctly. The current time is set. Thbe slide switch has been set to the timer position. I am switching the black wires shortly.

  • Gene Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    If dial is NOT rotating around each 24 hours, then reverse red and black wires, and that should work.

  • Gene Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    I have one of these timers installed to control water heater.http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_2... The timer has worked fine for several years, but I expect the small motor that rotates dial will will stop working at some point.

  • Joseph Wolfe Jan 22, 2013

    This could be a motor problem but my timer never worked from the day it was installed.

  • Gene Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    I believe timer is wired wrong. Please follow step-by-step instructions for single-pole timer:http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-...

  • Joseph Wolfe Jan 22, 2013

    I appreciate everybody's time and help but I am going to give up on getting this done cforrectly. I have already paid an electrician to wire it and his work also did not do the job. I guess it is not in the stars that I should have a working tijmer.

  • Gene Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    Geeze. Turn off the power. Pull out the timer. Tell me how the wires are connected. The timer is good, it is wired incorrectly, and you can fix it right now. I'm here right now.

I have the 59017 Mechanical. I set the pins and turned on in timer mode. It comes on at specified time, goes off after specified time, but then does not come on again the next night.


I don't have repair for defective timer:
If Load and Line wires are reversed, that could explain problem. Reverse timer red and timer black wires. Symptom of this problem: the clock dial stops rotating after tripper pin.

Troubleshoot run-through:
1) Use fingers and manually rotate timer dial several times and watch if Load turns ON-and-OFF
This will tell you if load is operational, and pins are set correctly.
2) Set slide switch to Timer.
3) Make sure timer is wired correctly. This timer needs neutral wire to operate clock motor. Open following link to see illustration and read about wiring. Line and load wires must be correct.

http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59017
4) Check that wire nuts are attached very tight and there are no loose wires.

Hi, we just got a new woods 59017 timer, and the dial turned until it turned off, at the point that we indicated, but after it turned off, the dial remained stuck in its place and will not turn any...


You have new 59017 single-pole in-wall 24-hour timer with tripper pins located on dial.
Timer is heavy duty and will handle up to 2500Watts 1 HP, including anything typically controlled by 15-20Amp light switch: incandescent, florescent, CFL, motor, pump, AC, whole house fan, etc.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Woods-59017-mechanical-timer-300.jpg

When timer is wired correctly, timer dial rotates no matter which position slide switch is set to.
Your dial rotated correctly and turned lamp ON, and rotated correctly until lamp turned OFF, and then stopped rotating.
This implies loss of power.
Check circuit breaker.
Check for loose wire on timer installation.
If wiring checks out, then timer is suspect. Replace different switch with suspect timer, and see if timer works on different Load.

Hello! I have a 59017 timer, and this is my problem: When I put the timer in Timer option, If I have all the pins in off, the timer run ok, but if I put one Pin in On mode, The timer run ok but when find...


You don't say if this is new timer installation.
Or if timer was working before and suddenly stopped working.

I also own Woods 59017 timer from Home Depot.

1) New timer installation:
Open following link to access manual and read wiring instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59017

2) Old timer that stopped working:
If timer dial does not rotate, then the timer is broken, does not have power, or is wired wrong.
If timer stalls when it gets to a pin, then the clock motor has gotten weak, and is overheated and will stop working.

3) Buy new GE 15070 timer from Home Depot for $18
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15070
4) Buy new Woods 59017 at Amazon for $11 plus shipping

The dial doesn't advance in time but the light works when I manuallly move the dial


You posted under Woods 59017 timer.

1) If this is a new installation, then timer is wired incorrectly.
White wire is probably wrong, white wire is connected to Neutral wire or ground wire so timer motor operates.
Open link to identify product for sure and read detailed wiring instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59017

2) If timer worked in the past, and stopped working, then it sounds like timer has gone bad.
Buy another 59017 from Home Depot, and then take defective one back with receipt.
