Sounds like you have the timer motor feeding through the points, be sure to have incoming power to timer motor so it is hot even when the timer is in the off cycle. If this does not help please post a model number and I will try to be more specific.

How to reset the hager EH711? Currently it is set to turn off the light at 7:30am and turn on at 7:30pm. I want to turn on at 7:30pm and turn off at 7:00am. thank you in advance.


Open following link for Hagar timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Hagar-timers-and-manuals.html

Hagar EH711 has segments located around the analog dial.
The dial rotates as time passes and the segments move tiny lever that turns Loan on-off.
The segments are pushed down and outward or up and inward to set on-off times.
The timer can be wired a couple different ways, so setting the segments up or down depends on how it was wired.
If you look at dial on your timer and see how segments are set now, that will give you the correct information.
If segments are down between 7:30am and 7:30 pm, then move those segments up-and-inward.

To check the timer after moving your segments, you can manually rotate dial clockwise and watch the load turn on-off. To set current time, rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
The slide switch has 3 positions. 0 = ON all the time; 1 = OFF all the time, and Auto = timer turns on-off depending how segments are set.

How do I operate the pins. I get the Current time and can set the on time but am confused about the off time because it seems like the off time ends up to be pm and I am turning it on in the am.


Open following link to see photos of pins and tabs:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs

Here's a generic instructions for plug-in timers.

Locate pins on dial: move 10 pins in a row. This will be for testing purpose.
Plug timer into outlet located on kitchen counter-top so you can see what is happening.
Turn lamp on. Plug lamp into timer.

Manually rotate dial clockwise and watch when lamp turns on-off.
This will tell you how to position the pins.

Most of these timers have a slide-switch.
Move the slide-switch one direction and then the other.
Manually rotate dial each time and see which way slide-switch should be positioned.

Set pins for on and off times.
Dark background is pm. Light background is am hours.

Final step is to set current time. Manually rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.

As time passes, the dial rotates, and the pins click a lever that turns lamp on-and-off

Power was out last week . Our timer was set at 5 pm on and 12 midnight off. Now the lights are on at 8 am and off at 3 pm.Please help


You posted under Intermatic 24-hour mechanical timer.
When power goes out, the current time has to be reset.
Pull yellow dial outward, and then rotate dial until current time lines up with silver pointer.

Some folks mistakenly move the silver pointer when trying to set current time.
The silver pointer is stationary at the 6 o'clock position.

To see sample photos of timer:

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html

Model number of timer shows on inside of timer door.
This type of timer has on and off trippers attached to dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers push a lever back and forth that opens-and-closes circuit to lights.
You can buy replacement clock motor and trippers at Grainger:

Got a brinks EZ- dial timer model42-1034B @ Walmart a few days ago can not seem to get it to work, Inst, seem so easy too. I read on some forum online someone thought the am/pm may be backwards to how it...


1) This Brinks timer is a bit lightweight for an appliance (unless for coffeemaker or tiny gerbil-feeding motor)
You might need 1/3 HP (horsepower) appliance timer like Woods 59201
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59201
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ
Intermatic HB113C is for heavier appliances
http://www.amazon.com/Intermatic-Hb113c/dp/B000GHKO6C
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Intermatic-HB114C-plug-in-4.jpg

2) How to set the Brinks:
I will use lamp as example since you can easily test the timer using a lamp.
Turn lamp ON. Make sure bulb is good.
Leave lamp turned ON and plug lamp into timer.
Move slide switch one direction.
Plug timer into outlet.
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise and see if lamp turns on-off
Move slide switch other direction, and rotate dial clockwise again to see if lamp turns on-off.

Now you know which way switch has to be moved.
Push down trippers and rotate around dial until they line up with 1:00 on dark part of dial and 5:00 on dark part of dial. Dark is for pm hours.

Last step: Set current time: rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial
Dial rotates at time passes, trippers push lever that turns circuit on-off.

How do I set a plug in timer GE 24 hour Model 15075? There are tiny switches for every hour and can be pushed towards the inner circle or pushed outward. And there is a turning arow near the center and a...


Following link has a close-up photo of on-off pins on GE 15075 timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15075

Pins are located around timer dial
The pins divide 24-hour day into 1/2 hour segments
Pins are out for ON
Pins are inward for OFF
Notice that numbered dial is divided into dark and light areas ... the dark areas are PM, light areas AM.

For example you are connecting chicken coop lamp to this timer.
Turn lamp on and make sure bulb is working.
Plug lamp into timer.
Set pins in and out as follows: all pins outward between 4:30 pm on light part of dial to 8:00 pm on dark part of dial. And then set all pins outward between 5:00am on dark part of dial to 7:00 am on light part of dial.
Plug timer into outlet
Move switch located on top to TIMER ON
Manually rotate timer dial clockwise to see lamp turn on and off.
Lastly, set current time: Manually rotate timer dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial. So if current time is high noon, then rotate dial until 'sun' symbol located on light part of dial lines up with arrowhead.
As time passes, the timer dial rotates, and the pins click circuit on-off.
To override timer, move switch to outlet-on.

How to set on at 4 pm and off at 7am


You posted under intermatic 1020 timer
If this is not your timer, add a comment

How to set timer.
Remove dial from body of timer.
So now the timer is apart in 2 pieces.
Silver ON trippers and brass OFF trippers can be removed.

Place trippers in times you want timer to operate.
In this case, set silver ON tripper at 4pm
Set brass OFF tripper at 7am
Timer comes with 2 pair of trippers, so you will only use one pair.
Save the extra pair of trippers for when 1st pair of trippers wears out.

Snap timer back together.
Manually rotate dial around to watch lights come on.
To set current time, rotate dial until current time lines up with mark.

Dial rotates with passing time.
Tripper rotates around with dial.
When tripper contacts on-off lever, it physically moves lever like turning light switch on-off.
ON tripper moves lever one direction.
OFF tripper moves lever opposite direction.

I want to set the timer and I don't know how


The timer has a dial and an arrow pointing to a certain time. Turn the dial to the correct time of the day ex. it is 2 p.m. rotate the dial so as the arrow points at 2 p.m. Then their are some clips around the dial 2 or 4 or more has to be in pairs. If you want to start sprinkling at 3:00 pm and stop at 3:20 pm put one clip at 3:00 pm and the other clip at 3:20 pm. One clip turns the sprinkler on and the other turns it off.
