SOURCE: Installed 8 low voltage lights with a malibu

Timer is not identified:
Open following link to see low-voltage digital timers and then add a comment if needed:
Page also has links to warranty information, and list of advisories so power pack lasts longer.

There are 2 likely suspects: Bad timer, or electrical problem.
There is no repair for bad timer, but timer has warranty through the manufacturer/ Malibu.
Electrical: Since power pack worked correctly before, then outlet probably has correct polarity, but I always suggest checking outlet with circuit analyzer.
Also plug lamp into same outlet and see if there is flickering that would indicate loose wire. Wiggle circuit breaker and see if lamp flickers. Move the outlet and see if lamp flickers.
Outdoor outlets get loose wires because of exposure to temperature and dust and moisture. Replace outlet and don't use the quick connects, instead use screw terminals.
If possible, move timer to different outlet on different breaker and see if problem persists.

The auto mode isn't working on my zilla digital 24-7 power center, when on auto mode no lights come on?

Copy following link to identify timer:
Is this a new timer??? Or old timer that stopped working?
Replace battery.
Press reset button to clear all memory traces before programming.
Check programming for overlaps and mismatched day(s) of operation.
Test outlet for correct polarity and grounding using circuit analyzer.
Make sure light bulb is turned ON. Timers do not reach out and rotate on-off switch.
Make sure outlet has at least 80% rated voltage shown on load label. For example 115 volts x 80% = 92 volts

About your specific programming needs:
Zilla selects 12 o'clock as changeover time between am-pm.
So if you want 8:02 to 7:59 operation, then that is under the 12 hours, but it crosses the 12 o'clock am-pm changeover.
Workaround: Shorten your times to less than 12 hours just like you have done.
But set current time differently so 8-8 falls under either am or pm, but does not cross am-pm. The timer does not actually know what the current time is, so simply fudge by amount needed.

Wiring diagrama for timer p1353me

P1353ME is versatile timer, and can be wired many different ways, and wiring can vary depending on which mode is selected, and which loads are being controlled.

The key to understanding P1353ME wiring is that incoming voltage connects to terminals 1 and 2. This will power the timer mechanism and power the switches, but does not put any power to terminals 3 thru 8.
Terminals 3 thru 8 are 'dry' switches. There are three switches, and you have to connect power to each switch.

Terminals 3-4 are one switch, just like a light switch that turns on-off with timer programming. Terminals 5-6 are separate switch. Terminals 7-8 are separate switch. So there are three switches.

Also in different modes the switches can operated at the same time, or operate separately with different programming for each switch.

If the dial is no longer rotating, then the small clock motor has stopped working.
Check if timer works in another outlet.
Buy another timer at local store. Then when it stops working, buy another and return defective timer in new package.
Some timers offer 1/2 hour increments, others offer 15 minute intervals.
Vacation timers look very similar, but they cannot be programmed, and operate at random times.

Find manual for woods 59028 programmable timer switch

1) Set current time:
Press reset button to clear all programs , display should flash 12:00 AM Monday
Press and hold CLOCK button.
Press Hour, minute and day buttons until current hour minute and day display.
Release Clock button.
Next step is to program the timer
Example shows how to turn on at 5PM each day and turn off at 11 PM each day.
2) Programming review: Each program requires ON time to be set, and then OFF time to be set For example you set Program1 ON 5:00PM for ALL days. And then you set Program1 OFF 11PM for ALL days. Minimum on-off set time is 1 minute.
3) Programming steps: Press PROG button until Timer 1 ON appears on display Use Hour button to set 5 PM Use MIN button to set :00 Default selects ALL days (If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days) Press PROG button again to save Program1 ON 4) Now for Program1 OFF 5) To set Program1 Off Press PROG button until Timer 1 OFF shows in display. Use Hour button to set 11 PM Use MIN button to set :00 Default selects ALL days (If you want other days, press DAY button until display shows correct block of days) Press PROG button again to save Program1 OFF 6) Program 1ON and Program1 OFF have been set ... so press the CLOCK button to return to current time. If you want to set another program, press PROG button until Timer 2 ON displays 7) After setting programs, press Clock button so current time shows. 8) The manual shows one more thing ... if you program the timer during the hours 5-11pm, and the timer should be ON during those hours, you have to 'tell' the timer to turn ON by pressing the manual override ... after that the timer will operate normally.

I need a wiring diagram for an intermatic timer model et70215c

Add a comment and say what voltage you are working with and what you are controlling with timer. Example wiring:

ET70215C timer is a 2-channel timer that can be wired MANY different ways, to control multiple voltages in different ways.
Each channel can be programmed separately to control 2 different loads with different schedules for each load.

Clock terminals are 1 and 2, and default clock voltage is 120Volts, but can be set for 208, 240 or 277Volts.

The switching terminals 3 4 5 6 7 8 are 'dry.' Max load rating is 20 amps per terminal
Dry terminals receive no power when voltage is applied to clock terminals 1 and 2.
This lets you to have 120Volt clock, but control 240Volt circuit with one of the channels, and 24volt with other channel.
Or you can jumper from the clock terminals and put power to terminals 3 and 6 as shown in illustration above.
The timer ALSO has NO and NC terminals that reverse the circuit each time the program turns the switch on-and-off. So when timer program is OFF then power travels from terminal 3 to terminal 5. When program is ON, power travels from terminal 3 to terminal 4.

Hey im having a problem, basically all im trying to do it make it so my heat lamp turns on only at night, so, i set my time to the correct time right now and then i pressed prg, set the days (everyday)...
1) There is no repair for defective timer.
According to manual, under Initial Timer Operation: yellow outlet is ON at 4:00 pm.
Make sure Mode button is not set to OFF.

2) Scheduling timer: Think about the zilla timer this way:
Day is 12 hours and night is 12 hours.
Your total schedule is only 9 hours, but it overlaps day and night.

If timer 'night' starts at 6pm and ends at 6am, then your programming overlaps day and night.
If timer 'night' starts at 12midnight and ends at 12noon, then your programming still overlaps day and night.

3) To solve zilla time problem, set current time differently.
4) Or buy GE or Utilitec 24-hour programmable power strip

I am programming the intermatic ET70215C to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise. The two switches led lights come on time but not load is switching. I tried resetting the device and replacing the battery...

If indicator lights turn ON-OFF on schedule, then timer is programmed correctly.
Timer default voltage is 120Volt. Page 29 of manual shows how to change voltage.
Load rating is max 20amps.
This timer is not made for heavy amp loads, but instead is made to control a contactor for switching heavy loads. Add a comment for more information about contactors.

1) Are timer relays clicking on and off?
Test for voltage across terminals when indicator shows.
Check that load is operational.
Following link shows typical 120Volt wiring

2) Terminals 3 thru 8 are dry and receive no power when wires from breaker box connect to terminals 1 and 2. Jumper from terminal 2 is needed to put power to timer circuits.

3) Only copper wire and no insulation can be under terminal screw plate. Two wires under same screw plate have to be same gauge and type, so mixing stranded wire and solid copper wire will cause loose connections.

4) This is 2-channel timer, so both relay circuits can be programmed independently: If programming is set for relay 2, but wires are connected to relay 1, then programming will not work.

5) Programming difficulty: Usually last step troubleshoot is replace battery and then reset timer after battery replacement.
Press and hold clear key and then press reset momentarily
Keep holding clear button until 'reset' displays.

Typical manual is 39 pages long. Add a comment about specific part of manual that is not clear, for possible help.

6) Contact Intermatic if timer is defective:
Replacement parts and circuit boards are available for some timers.

Do not know how to set timer DT300 for Lights


Set present time
Then set ON time for program 1
Set OFF time for program 1
Then set ON time for program 2
Set OFF time for program 2
Most timers will not function if there is a conflict in programming > for example Program 1 says ON at 6 and OFF at 7 and Program 2 says opposite or has overlapping times
When events are set, press SET once > this will put timer in RUN mode

If manual override works, and you set programming correctly, but timer does not carry out instructions, I guess the timer is no good.

Intermatic has 24 hour timers with 2 on-off per day
Intermatic has 7-day digital timers (all digital timers today are 7 day where you select the day that each program works)
