Hi Joy and Fred.
You posted under Woods outdoor timer, but don't give specific brand or model
Open following links for detailed information and illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59383

Segments are usually on outer edge of dial.
Some timers the segments lift up, some push down, some pull up and out, etc.
Use a fingernail or small tool and fiddle around with it.
Some timers have pins located on dial face that click inward or outward. Use small tool and move them in and out.
Some timers have trippers that you attach to outer edge of dial.
If you are confused, open links above for illustrations.

After moving some segments-pins. Plug lamp into timer.
Turn lamp on. Plug timer into outlet.
Manually rotate timer dial and watch how lamp turns on-off.
Move timer switch both directions and manually rotate dial to see lamp turn on-off.
These tests will show you how to set pin-segments-trippers and switch for your specific timer.

The timer dial rotates as time passes. The dial is a simple clock that rotates because of a clock motor.
The dial causes segments-pins move small lever that turns lamp on-off.
Just like any clock, the correct time has to be set. To do this: rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.

Woods 59200 has segments located around edge of timer dial, and Woods 59201 has pins.

Model 59382, where are the segment pin`s located?


http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59383

Photo of timer shows segments are located along outer edge of dial.

I'm not sure if these segments pull in-and-out or if they lift up.
Usually when segments lift up, they don't come straight up.
They lift up-and-outward or they lift up-and-inward.
Put a nail file under one of the segments and see if it moves upward.

Are you talking about raising and lowering the segments?

To set timer, raise the segments up for all times you want timer OFF
Leave segments down for times you want the timer ON.

I cannot figure out how to set my outdoor timer to control my Christmas lights. How do I set the pins?


There are 4 basic pins/tabs/segments for timers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs

Pins move back and forth
Segments lift up
Segments pull out
Segments push down

Each type of pins/segments are located on dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
The pins/segments contact on-off lever and cause lever to move.
Lever movement opens and closes electrical contacts.
The little plastic parts and motors wear out.

Make sure pins/segments are pushed all the way into place.
Check override switch is clicked to TIMER
Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead marker
To check operation of timer, manually rotate dial to watch lights turn on-off.

Troubleshoot:
Lights must be on.
Bulbs are good.
Receptacle has power.
Check timer in different receptacle.
If dial does not rotate or pins/segments don't turn lights on-off, timer might be bad.

Where are the pins on the 59382 outdoor timer


The 'segment pins' mentioned in manual are tiny segments located around outer edge of dial.
There are 4 segments per each hour.
Each segment represents 15 minutes.

Use small screwdriver or fingernail to pull segment up.
When segment is up, timer is OFF
Leave segment down, timer is ON

Timer is 500 Watt.
Timer handles maximum 20 strings of 50 mini-bulb Christmas lights

How do you set the timer


You posted under mechanical outdoor timer with time dial located on face.
If you have different timer, add a comment.

Instructions:
Rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
There are segments or pins located around outer edge of dial.

If timer has segments.
Pull these segments outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Pull out a few segments and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with segments out.
Then pull out segments for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

If timer has pins.
Click pins outward, or leave them in place to set on-off times.
Click out a few pins and then rotate dial clockwise to see if lights turn on or off with pins out.
Then pull out pins for the times you want timer to turn on-off.

Some timers also have an override button located on inner dial or somewhere on body of timer.
Move this switch to TIMER or AUTO, depending on your timer

The instructions indicate to push the outer segments down with pen, etc to set timer. I can't get the segment to go down.


Generally the segments are already pushed down when you buy timer.

Instruction usually say, pull up all the segments, and after pulling up all the segments, then push down the segments for the hours you want the timer turned OFF or ON depending on timer
