Aqualife Aqualight Power Center with Lighting/Wavemaker Timers is a Bullsh*t product. Can't use the wavemaker and the timer at the same time. Had the same problem as you tonight, and started to research. Saw this page: http://www.marineandreef.com/Coralife_Aqualight_Power_Center_Timer_p/res01691.htm

See the comment: "NOTE: The Aqualight Power Center Timer can be used EITHER as a light timer or a wavemaker, not for both." Well, the website I bought from didn't mention that either, nor does the manual.

Unplug one set (the lights or wavemaker), turn off and on, and the timer will work again. Worked for about four days with both sets, and maybe it will again after resetting, but overall, either just a stupid way to design a product, or a deceptive way of making people think their getting two timers in a powerstrip, and then making them buy another timer. Hope potential victims of this scam see this review.

If timer is new, then it has 1 year limited warranty.

Analog timers have small clock motor that rotates dial, and the motor gets slow as it ages.
Sometimes the motor sticks at the tripper, instead of pushing the on-off lever.
There are no replacement clock modules for this timer.

Try timer on different outlet and different circuit breaker and on different load to check if outlet polarity or load noise is causing problem.
If more than one timer has same problem, test outlet with circuit analyzer.

If analog dial-timer is lagging, then clock motor has gotten weak and is overheating and will stop working. There are no replacement parts for this timer.

I am having problems setting up coralife aqualight power center


You need to plug them into the two yellow outlets, not the blue ones. The blue outlets are for night lights if you have them. Set the timer for 6 and stop at 12am. If you plug them into the two yellow outlets they should go on at 6 and turn off at 12, however If you also plug something into the blue outlets they will turn on as soon as the yellow outlets turn off, it's sopposed to switch from your day lights to your night moon lights automatically provided you got the moon lights plugged in the blue outlets. Hope this helps....

My Coralife aquarium lamp does not turn on once it is turned off.... until the next day. Other times it seems fine.


The timer doesn't know what time it is until you set current time.
The yellow outlets are controlled for 12 hours, and you can determine when those hours occur when setting current time.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla

If you want timer to control one lamp with both day and night schedules, you have to adjust current time setting so lamp schedule falls within a 12 hour period. If that schedule doesn't fit, then buy a second timer.
