No. Timer cannot get wet.
But timer can work upsidedown.

Can utilitech timer, 0154182, be located at ground level and must it be in an upright position?


Don't put timer at ground level where it can get wet of covered with snow.
Otherwise will work in any position as long as photoeye turned away from lights.

Your defrost timer has stuck to on position, replace timer and all good or locate timer and spray lubricant into the dial and turn it several times with unit off, then try it after several hours, quick fix only but may last several years...good luck...Russ

Have a similar question to the others asked about the GE Smart Digital Timer 7 day timer model 15086. I originally got the wires connected but the exterior lights remained in on position. The manual...


Wiring instructions and on-line manual appear on following link.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15071

I have tested this timer, but I'm not there to test it out for you.
Let me offer a troubleshoot list how I would start.
1) Switch located behind timer door that says OFF-TIMER. Make sure it is set to Timer.
2) 4 square buttons located behind timer door that sit in each corner. These are override buttons, and should turn lights on-off. Push each one separately.
3) Check wiring against instructions shown on link above. This timer will not operate unless wired correctly.
4) Ground wire broken off? Each cable that enters a box can be pulled a bit further so maybe you can grab some of the ground.
The ground is not critical for timer operation -UNLESS- you are using it to power electronic clock inside timer.
Normally white neutral wire is used for clock electronics, as described in wiring instructions.
5) Conflicts in programming. If 7-day programming has conflicting days or hours, timer will not operate as expected.
Check programming.
6) Reset timer and start over.
7) I test timers, and some arrive defective. GE makes a good timer, manufacturing timers for many decades: 15086 is sold at Home Depot. Buy another one and take back defective one.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

How do you program a Tork 602A timer? I can't get mine to cycle on and off at a desired time.


The Tork 602A mechanical outdoor timer with 2 grounded outlets.
Tork 601A and 602A manual
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Tork-601A-Manual.pdf
Manual has images of timer that will help.

Plug timer into outdoor outlet.
To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial is divided into light and dark sections that represent day or nighttime hours.
Reset time after power outage.

96 pins located around timer dial are used to set on-off times.
Each pin represents 15 minutes in 24 hour day
Move pins in-or-out with fingernail or ink pen to set timer on-off functions.
With Tork timers, usually when pins are out, timer is ON.
When pins are in, timer is OFF.
To double-check pin setting, manually rotate timer to watch when lights turn on-off.

Set multiple ON/OFFs each day.
Change on-off times by resetting a pin or two.
Timer repeats every 24-hours.

Manual ON/TIMER switch is located on inner dial.

Set Manual switch to TIMER for programs to operate.
To override time and turn on Load, move override to ON position.

Need a wiring diagram for installing a EJ500C in place of a 3-way


Locate the COMMON wire
connected to first old switch.
It might be attached to a different
colored screw, or find
markings on old switch.
Connect BLACK wire from
switch timer to COMMON
wire, using a twist connector.
Connect the other two wires from the old switch to either the
BLUE and RED wires from the switch timer.
Connect the ground wire from the box to the BARE COPPER
wire on the switch timer. If there is no ground wire, ground the
switch timer to the box. If the box is plastic, connect the bare
copper wire to ground as supplied or contact an electrician.
Locate the COMMON on the second old switch of the 3-way pair.
Connect jumper wire (supplied) from the COMMON terminal
to either of the other terminals on the remote 3-way switch.
Make sure all twist connectors are tight.
Tuck wires into wall boxes leaving room for the devices.
Mount the devices into the wall boxes, then install the wall plates.
Turn power back on at the service panel.
Make sure the switch timer displays “MAN” mode. Do the following
test with the remote switch in each of its 2 positions:
Press the NEXT ON/OFF button on the switch timer several
times. Each time that you push the
NEXT ON/OFF button, the
switch controlled light or device (the “load”) should turn on
or off. If so, proceed to Section 3.
If the timer display changes between ON and OFF but the
load does not operate, re-check your wiring and make sure
the load is functional.
If the timer display changes
between ON and OFF but the
load only operates when the
remote switch is in one of
its 2 positions, you need to
turn off the power at the service panel, change the jumper
wire to the other terminal. Then turn power back on at the
service panel and repeat. good luck

Temperature control may have failed. Thermostat causes compressor to cycle on and off with temperature in the refrigerator section. If the compressor is not trying to run and is cold to the touch no power is getting to it. compressor is located in back on the bottom.

Additionally the defrost timer may have stopped working while in the defrost position. Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise a small amount and if the compressor starts and runs replace the timer.
