Have a first alert et220 timer. After setting it and turning back to current time, pm light goes out and clock does not run. Manual switch works fine


Timer is not identified for certain. Expert does not have instruction manual and can only guess at cause of problem.
For example not all timers are rated for CFL or halogen bulbs.
Loose light bulb filament, or loose light bulb, or dirt in light bulb socket can cause problem, replace light bulb.
Conflicts in timer programming can cause problem with digital timer.
Read more options listed below:

1) Add a comment and describe timer appearance and if timer is programmable or has a rotary dial.
Describe what buttons appear on timer.

2) Take photo of timer and post on flickr and add comment with link to that photo.

3) Scan your timer instructions into file format. Post this file to Flickr and then add a comment with link to those instructions.

How to program residential timer mod no 49750/tm261a


49750 sounds like a Woods timer number, but I can't identify for sure
Woods makes timers for many other brands that are sold under different numbers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Amazon shows First Alert tm261 random vacation timer
http://www.amazon.com/First-Alert-Tm261-7-Day-Vacation/dp/B000P6W4OE
If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

First Alert tm261 random vacation timer is similar to GE 15151 shown on following page.
GE 15151 has a manual
First Alert appears just below GE 15151
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#vacation

A vacation timer cannot be programmed.
Look closely at outer edge of dial and see that dial has small plastic protrusions that stick out.
These protrusions are trippers that cause timer to turn lights on-off at random times so home looks occupied when on vacation.

How do i set this time to come on and go off daily


I believe the First Alert timer is same as GE 15151 vacation timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#vacation

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.
Also look at Woods timers on link below to help identify timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

A vacation timer turns on-and-off randomly to give the appearance that somebody is home
This timer cannot be set for daily on-off schedule.

GE markets a number of timers for daily repeat programming:
When buying a timer, note that some are for 2-prong plugs and some for 3-prong plugs

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002HEY300/?tag=picc-20

Woods makes daily timers and a weekly timer

I came across this page while looking for the same thing. Then I found the manual! I scanned and uploaded it to Photobucket. Click on the link to view. I know the original post is from a couple years ago, but hopefully this can help someone trying to remember how to program this timer.

I don't know how to set it and can't find my manual


You posted under First Alert timers.
I believe these timers are another brand packaged under First Alert name.

Yesterday, a fellow posted at fixya and said his First Alert timer was a Woods timer product.
You can see Woods timers and manuals and compare photos and see if your timer is shown. Link has manuals for each timer shown.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

I e-mailed First Alert asking for clarification and support because so many folks are at fixya looking for First Alert timer manuals and instructions.
Searching for First Alert timers, top results give fixya, which promises solutions and manuals.
We fixya folks have lots of information not available elsewhere.
Right now, the web does not show any manuals or instructions for First Alert timers.
First Alert website does not list timers as one of their products.
When I find these manuals, I will add a comment to this post and keep you advised.

First Alert timers have prefix numbers and look similar to Woods promotional timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Searching First Alert site turns up no timers, which makes me think they have a timer packaged for them. Why they select promotional timers probably reflects need for retail price point. Searching for your model number turns up no on-line sellers, but does turn up fixya problems about First Alert timers ... which may be why you're here on promise of manuals and repairs.
http://www.firstalert.com/

Woods makes a top-line 2-pack 24-hour timer that sells on Amazon:
These timers have 2-prong outlet, and they will NOT fall apart.
http://www.amazon.com/59419-Appliance-2-Prong-Outlet-24-Hour/dp/B002Y1KZHQ

Amazon sells single-pack timers with 3-prong outlet: for 24-hour and 7-day
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59202-Vacation-Security-Appliance/dp/B001Q9EFT6

That being said, I've tested these timers.
Except for some brands of box-type timers, timers today are one-piece apparatus that have no repair parts. Bust it and throw it away.
Plug-in wall timers are not supposed to fall apart, or even come apart.
It sounds like first timer out of package is defective.
Sorry for the loss, and frankly I am going to contact First Alert and ask why they don't support their timer customers with manuals and information.
