At daylight savings time the timer jumped 2 hours forward. How to I set it back an hour without going thru whole set up process?


Expert cannot see the timer you are talking about without model number or photograph

-With modern timers, usually the product manual shows how to change DST with push of button or by pushing two buttons simultaneously.

-If the DST was not set correctly when first programmed, then probably you have to reprogram.

-Normally, with modern timers, the on-off programs stay in memory if you re-enter current time of day and set DST.
-Most modern timers have battery back-up or capacitor back-up
-Only if you press reset button are the memories wiped clear

I have the Vigoro (196-036)/Melnor water timer. I bought it last year to replace a different model. I replaced the battery and set the program this year, but the program isn't working. I can use it...


At the
Bottom right there is a button to turn the program on and off. Make sure you have it on. I think a black little
Bar shows if it is on.

I have a IIIWoods timer #59203WV and have trouble programming it to turn on and off exterior lights. Thanks for your response.


Manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-59203.pdf
59203 plug-in timer: your outdoor lights have to plug into side of timer.

If you want a timer to replace outdoor light switch: buy in-wall timer Aube T1032 or Lowes sells Utilitec 0192773.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html#Aube
Add a comment for more help with in-wall.

Here are instructions for 59203 plug-in timer:
Plug in the timer until battery is charged.
Unplug timer so you can program easily.
Press R reset button with paper clip to clear.

Set the time of day:
Press and hold clock button
Press hour button until current hour shows
Press minute button until current minute shows
Press day button until current day shows.
Release clock button

Program review:
Write out ON-off schedule showing hours minutes and days
For example: timer turns ON 6:00 pm all days of week.
Timer turns OFF 1:00 am all days of week.
First step: Set program1 ON > hour, minute, and day.
Next step: Set program1 OFF > hour, minute, and day

If needed, go to next step: Set program2 ON > hour, minute, and day
Next: Set program2 OFF > hour, minute, and day

How to program timer for ON at 6:00 pm and OFF at 1:00 am all days of week:
Step 1: Press PROGRAM button until display shows 1 ON (this is program1 ON)
Press hour button until 6 pm shows
Press minute button until :00 shows
Press day button until all days of week show (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)

Step 2: Press PROGRAM button until display shows 1 OFF (this is program1 OFF)
Press hour button until 1 am shows
Press minute button until :00 shows
Press day button until all days of week show (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)

If you want to set another program, you will repeat same steps for program2
Press PROGRAM button until display shows 2 ON

If you are done programming, press clock button
Press ON/AUTO/OFF button until AUTO displays

I have 2 Vigoro 196-036 watering timers. Why does water come out of the three holes near the battery compartment on one of them?


It comes out of the holes because the water goes in the holes. That might sound dumb but Vigoro designed these only to be in dry conditions, such as attached to the water line. I used them for sprinklers, but the water poured into the timer so bad it shorted it out in a week. I did find a vigoro timer with no holes and a sealed unit, and they work great. But I can't find them anymore.

Regarding the Vigoro Electronic Water Timer, Model 196 036: How do I program the timer to water every day, in the early a.m., then in the evening? Is the greatest hourly spread per day 12 hrs.? In...


I think you almost have it right, you can program how many hours apart.
4=6 x per day
6=4 x per day
8=3 x per day
12= 2 x per day
24=1 x per day
Then you set how long you want it to be on, but that can't exceed your hour setting. I believe these are the same timers as Melnor. You can go to their web site for manuals. http://www.melnor.com/instructions.php. If you really want exact timing, I'd get a quality electric timer, and then buy a electric valve such as you'd use for a sprinkler system.
