SOURCE: remove Intermatic 60 min. wall timer face plate only from wall

That knob should just pull straight off. Check to make sure there isn't a tiny set screw on the side, but otherwise you can pull it off and remove the cover plate.

SOURCE: Need instructions to program Intermatic

Do you mean Intermatic E104C box-type timer? Intermatic does not make E140C

Manual says "refer to programming instructions on time switch door"
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/et104c%20-%20english.ashx

Manual says timer has 8 events per 24-hour day ... 4 'on' events and 4 'off' events. Normal operations, selectors are set to AUTO and RUN.

Using sketchy info from manual about programming:
Set sliders to MANUAL & TIME/SET
Press EVENT for event 1 ... set hour and minute using HOUR & MIN buttons ... this will be 'on' time
Press EVENT for event 2 ... set hour and minute ... this will be 'off' time
Set all 8 events ... 4 'on' and 4 'off'
Move sliders to AUTO & RUN for timer operation

SOURCE: We went on vacation and

1) If timer dial does not rotate, then clock motor is not getting electricity, or clock motor is bad.
-Make sure time dial is seated correctly. Pull it off firmly and then push in firmly.
-Check circuit breaker is not tripped.
-Test across terminals 1 and 2 on timer for 240Volts.
-Test terminal 1 to ground and then test terminal 2 to ground to make sure each hot wire from breaker has power.
-If circuit breaker is tripped on one leg, the timer can appear to have power, but is only receiving 120V and not the full 240V, so the time dial will not rotate.
-Look for signs of high heat and burning.
-Check that no insulation, and only copper wire are under the screw-down terminal plate.
-Make sure that same gauge wire is used, and that stranded wire and solid copper wire are not under same screw-down terminal plate. The stranded wire will come loose.

2) WH21 is rated for 25 amps and has 1 year limited warranty:
If label on side of water heater shows rating of 5500 watts, then divide by 240Volts = 22.91 amps.
4500 watts = 18.75

No op on window and does not turn lights on or off


1) I read somewhere that folks have fixed the 'no op' problem by removing screws on back of timer and adding bit of oil to the gear.
I don't know if this works, or if repair lasts.
When that information was posted, several people said it was a good solution.

2) Otherwise you might try changing the battery.

3) Reset timer:
ST01C timer: Hold down ON-OFF and push in reset button.
Keep holding down ON-OFF until INIT shows, and then release and 12:00 should display.
EJ500 timer: Same instructions except hold down Next/ON/OFF

The timer flashes, "no-op". Refuses to turn


no-op means 'no operation.

The manual says last resort to revive non-working timer is RESET timer.
This action will delete current day setting and all programming

Hold down ON/OFF and use paper clip to push in reset button for 2 seconds.
Release reset button but keep holding ON/OFF button down until INIT flashes on screen
Then release ON/OFF button and 12:00 should display.

At this point, timer can be re-programmed.
Simple step by step shows on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

If timer will not accept programs, or operate after RESET, then timer has gone bad.
ST01C comes with 1 year limited warranty.
Most in-wall timers have same limited warranty.

Replacing timer:
-Advantage of ST01C is timer does not need Neutral wire to operate, and wiring can be simple.
-If you are using ST01C for 3-way switching, then easiest thing is to replace with same timer.
-If you are using timer as astronomic dawn-dusk, then replacements include EJ500, Utilitec 0192773, Aube T1034, T1070, T1072, T1073.
-If you are using timer for 7-day operations then there are numerous options:

The light does not stay on until sunrise. This is just since the clocks went back on the 8th November,.


You posted under ST01C.
It sounds like your timer is not set to automatically adjust for DST.

Open following page to see step by step for setting DST to automatic so timer auto-adjusts for DST:
Steps are shown under 'setting current time'
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

Utilitec 0192773 also has dawn-to-dusk timer with DST option.

See those instructions:

I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers.
According to Intermatic, they no longer make the light switch timer.
I cannot find the instruction manual on Intermatic.

From my experience, I suspect that the timer is old and does not function any more.

If the display will not show after replacing battery, try resetting and then reprogramming timer.

If the display will not show after reset, then timer has gone bad.

Troubleshooting steps do not show specific problem you mention

The advantage of Intermatic battery-powered timers is simply hooking up two wires. Plus the DST feature.
Aube T1034 hooks up to 2 wires without needing batteries.

How do I get the intermatic dt27 timer to work with out astro? I set it for an event, but it still uses the sunrise/sunset operation.


This manual is a bit confusing because it jumps across steps without telling you.

Look at manual instructions above Fig 11 where it says "Programming ON/OFF event times without astro." This is where your instructions are.

But let's start back at Fig 6. Setting DST
I think the instructions jump from DST at Fig 6 to programming at Fig 11

DST says:
If you want timer to compensate for DST, the display automatically defaults to AUTO.
If you do not want DST, press SET+ or ENTER/NEXT and display reads MANUAL
Then it says: Press MODE+ to go set up ASTRO feature

But you don't want ASTRO

I think this is where you by-pass ASTRO completely by pressing MODE+ until the screen looks like Fig 11 below:
d506e70.jpg

Now you are at programming steps to right of Fig 11:
EVENT1 shows in screen
-Press Day to set days > you keep pressing Day to show M-F, Sat-Sun, or individual days
Then use SET+ and SET- to set ON time for EVENT1

Press ENTER/NEXT to go to EVENT2
EVENT2 is OFF time for EVENT1

Tip: Other intermatic timers ignore all Events that conflict ... so you might make on-off chart before programming

After EVENTs are programmed, press MODE+ to go to AUTO

How do I reset my Intermatic wall switch timer?


If CR2 battery went dead or if battery removed more than 1 minute, then time-date disappeared, but programming stays in timer indefinitely even if power is off.

To reset time-date. (From Section 5 in manual)
Press MODE until screen displays SET UP
> Press ON-OFF until HOUR shows ... use + key to change hour
> Press ON-OFF until MINute shows ... use + key to change minute
> Repeat same sequence for Year, Month, Day
> Press ON-OFF until DST daylight savings time ... use + key ... choose AUTO if area has DST ... choose MANual if areas does not have DST
> Press MODE to exit and save settings

Other programming steps are long.
