This is listed under motion sensor. If so, there is no problem. If it's really a timer then:
Times have 3 components: Clock, two trip switches (on and off).
Make sure the mark you are using to set the clock is the correct mark and that you have AM PM correct.

Make sure you have the trip switches ON and OFF identified and set correctly.

Most appliance timers are pretty much alike. You should be able to walk into any appliance store and look at the directions for one like yours.

Sh5412. The red lite blinks when walking past but the spot liters do not come on. The test was ok


What test did you do? Did the floodlights come on with the sensor switch in the Test position? Did you wait two minutes after turning the circuit on? Is the sensor in the dark? If your answer is yes to those questions, then try the following:
Double check the wiring. Sometimes a wire will come loose if the stranded wire from the fixture is wrapped all the way around a solid house wire. The solution is to gently bend the bare tip of the solid wire in a soft s shape so that the stranded wire does not completely wrap around the solid wire when the wire nut is twisted. (I know that you said the sensor red light is coming on but the additional load of the floodlights' current may not flow if there is a loose connection, very little current needs to flow to operate the sensor.) (The wires should be connected something like this -White from house to white for sensor (and to whites for lights unless this light connection is done internally in the sensor by Heath Zenith), Black from house to sensor, Other colored wire from sensor to lights (again unless this light connection is done internally in the sensor by Heath Zenith)- Also check that the spotlights are not burnt out and that they are tight in the sockets.

There are settings on the sensor itself. Should be a dusk to dawn setting that will keep it off during those times and then function at night. as far as not working I would first suggest setting the sensitivity. Disrupting to power could have reset this.

My Motion detector #5512 quit working after we had our house washed. One bulb was out so I replaced that. Both bulbs glow but do not turn on.


Reset circuit breaker.
Check if you are on a GFCI circuit.

Probably there is no hope, but the sensor has to be removed to replaced, so take it off and hang it upside down and let dry in sun.
There is no repair protocol for fixing motion detectors, because there are no replaceable parts, or circuit boards.
Cover outdoor electronics with plastic bag when washing house. That includes light and pool timers, breaker boxes, low voltage timers, infrared cameras, motion detectors, alarm boxes, etc.
Should the power wash contractor know this? Maybe yes.
We never covered things when washing houses, and we washed 100s per year, but I told the guys not to put pressured water directly on any outdoor electrical system.
Can you prove that the sensor stopped because of washing. No.
The unit could have simply stopped working.earlier that morning, without provocation.

Switch the Dual Timer selector to OFF.
Wait 1.5 minutes for fixture to recalibrate.
Then check fixture again.

By pulling it apart and following the circuit path it should be fairly apparent how to 'bridge out' the faulty PIR sensor.
If it is not, or you are not sure, then (no offence), you really shouldn't be playing with it. Some units are transistor bypass and some are relay. Cheers

The black wire goes with the black house supply wire, and the red wire goes with the black wire from the lighting fixture. The white wires all connect together.
