Question about Woods Hardware & Accessories

1 Answer

Can't remove little pins

I can't remove the little pins to set the on/off time. Also it doesn't seem to move around the clock anymore. It makes the first cycle and turns on at the right time but then doesn't move around and turn off. The unit remains on from then on.

SOURCE: Time setting does not function. Clock doesn't

As a general rule, if the timer clock does not rotate on plug-in-timers and in-wall-timers, then the timer has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

A larger box-type timer that attaches to the wall is different. For many of the box-type-timers, that are mechanical and not electronic, the clock motor can be replaced.

Power packs don't come apart for repair.
And they don't have repair parts available on Intermatic or

I had same problem with my power pack, I used compressor to blow out dirt and sprayed WD40, but it didn't help.
I couldn't get power pack apart without breaking, and I own every tool in the shop.
Short while later, power pack stopped working.

As general rule with mechanical dial timers, when clock motor gets too weak to push tripper past on-off lever, then plastic gears are stripped or motor is getting overheated.
Either way, it's spiral downhill for power pack.

After hours researching power packs at Intermatic,, ebay etc, the best I found were tips for next power pack that might save money:
The reason I add these tips now, before your power pack needs replacement is some fella wrote-in back ago.
He bought 500 Watt power pack to replace 300 Watt > thinking bigger was better.
Power pack burned out. Here's why:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

My 1990 Toyota pickup 4x4 3.0 5spd failed its smog test in Ca. The shop said that the timing was set at 5 degrees after. How do I set the timing to the correct setting?

there is a small black check connector next to the big black fuse block that has coded pins that you can jump to check different systems.but to check the timing you will need a jumper wire and jump pins te1 and e1 together. the location for the pins that you need to jump are located on the inside of the lid of the small check connector.start the truck and let it warm up and set the idle to around 800rpm and hook your timing light up to the battery and the #1 plug wire and put your jumper wire in. the engine speed should slow down a little and you should also be able to see the timing mark move with the timing light when you connect and disconnect the jumper wire.once you have everything hooked up loosen the dist. bolt and set the time to 10 degrees btdc at idle.tighten the dist. and unhook everything and and see how it runs.if not running to good the timing belt could be stretched or it could have jumped a tooth.the throttle position sensor can also make the timing to crazy things.....i hope this will help you let me and fixya know and a thumbs up if i did my job........if you have anymore questions let me know i have been working on toyota and lexus for 25 yrs......good luck.......

I have installed a new adjustable thermostat unit (E1-BCANRT1W). Temp is set at 91 deg and I am using the timer. Two time periods are set and the switch is set to timer (not ON). The unit comes on at...

Double check your slide switch.
For timer: set switch to TIMER
For thermostat: set switch to ON
If slide switch does not operate, then Autocirc may be defective

Laing (800) 554-6853

1) Household AC wiring will not affect the timer.
You can check your outlet using cheap circuit analyzer from home center.
The clock rotates one direction and the pins push small lever down which turns motor on-off.
When the OFF pins pass, the small lever snaps back and the motor turns ON.

I cannot immediately find operation manual for the E-1 model.
Typical ACT303 auto circ manual says following:

2) If timer controlled operation is desired, set timer and move slide switch to TIMER:
Manual says: tabs/pins are outward for ON times.
Another sentence says UPWARD, so I don't know which way the pins are set for sure.
So if you want timer ON for 2 hours, you would set 4 consecutive pins outward or upward.
ON for 6 hours, set 12 consecutive pins outward or upward.
If the timer turns ON in reverse of instructions, then set the pins that way.
Autocirc does not make the timer, they buy timer modules from clock-makers like Grasslin, Intermatic, etc.

3) To operate Autocir thermostatically without the timer, slide switch to ON position.
The clock dial will continue rotating

I want to reset the timer for hours of on-off for out water heater but can't figure out how to push the little white teeth in or out. Model is 265-1.

1) Open following link to read about re-circulation systems:

2) Image below show typical FM1 analog timer dial with pins:
Move pins with fingernail or small tool.
To test if pins need to be moved in or out, set pins each direction and manually rotate dial clockwise and listen when pump turns on-off.
How timer operates: clock motor rotates dial continually, pins on dial move lever that turns circuit on-off.
To set current time, manually rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Some timers have a selector switch: move switch to Auto, or Timer, or Timer ON. Again you can manually rotate dial and check which setting is correct.

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

How do you change the time on the clock on a GE Slim Spacemaker 7-5295 CD Shelf System.

It was answered under your "My Product Alert" and this is what they told me and it work perfectly.

press the " SET 'clock symbol' " button
a little red check mark with a circle around it pops up to the lower right of the time
press and hold either the " TRK >>| " button (to move the time forwards)
or the " TRK <<| " button (to move the time backwards)
when you are finished changing the time, the time change indicator (the little check mark with the circle around it), will go away on its own
you can repeat these steps as many times as necessary until you get the time right -- the numbers change pretty quickly when you are holding down the change buttons!!!

The receiver button is stuck and cant get a dial tone

try a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip, not too soggy- run it around the edges of the button. push on the button, until it seems looser- apply a little more alcohol around it- push the button a few more times, if it starts to move- run a clean q-tip around it to soak up any gunk- try repeating the alcohol- push- clean until it moves freely! then, if you have it, a little wd-40 on a q-tip applied around the edges of the button should free it up!!
try not to spill anymore 'red-bull' on it! or you have young children! 'little spillers'!
good luck!

Accuwave DS Clock

The radio may not be able to get a strong enough or clear enough signal to process (night is best away from TV, computers and radios).  To regain "control" of the clock, take the battery out, wait 30 seconds and then reinstall it.  This will reset the clock.  You can then manually set the clock. 
Press SET for a few seconds until the hour starts flashing in the display.  Then press the ADJUST button to set the hour.  Press SET to move to the different functions (Hour -> Minutes -> Seconds-> Month -> Date -> Year) each time using the ADJUST button to correct the setting.  Finally press MODE to exit the setting mode.  
If the time zone is incorrect for your area (default is PST), press MODE to enter the Alarm Time Mode; then press SET to flip through the time zones; then press MODE again to exit.
The little "reset" is for use if the LCD display doesn't come on when the battery is changed. It doesn't affect any of the clock settings per se.

Needles flying around the clock

I have a mantle clock version and to set the clock to recognize the radio signal, I need to hold down both the ET and PT time zone buttons for a few seconds. The clock hands will then continue to move until they reset themselves to the correct time.
