    Thank you. I will look at that. I am guessing I do have all zones set for the same time. Program A and B is new to me, I will need to look at that. I don't understand what that is, but I will look at it.

Do you have all zones set for the same time? Hope not. Make sure you have program 'A' only. You might have a different program set with different times in 'B' program.

    I meant to say the PROGRAMS may be set for the same time. The zones CAN all have the same 'run time' on them. Make sure your program switch is set for the one with the time you want it to run.

Understand the instructions for TS EE8


Following link has product manual that might match your timer:
Use + button at top of manual to enlarge print.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Argos-7day-Electronic-Timer-Manual-TS-EE8.pdf

Please add a comment and say if this manual matches your timer...fixya will send me email... and I will answer.

Include where you get confused.
You set current time first... that's the time that shows on your wristwatch right now.
You set day of the week... same day it is right now.
You set hour and minute.

The timer allows you to set up to 8 programs... you can set just 1 program or 2 or 3 etc.
Each program must have ON time
You set program 1 ON
Each program must have OFF time.
You set program 1 OFF
Each program must have a day or days of operation
So you might select monday ON at 10:10 am and OFF at 3:36 pm.
And other program for Tuesday ON at 10:45 and OFF at 4:00 pm.

When programming is finished, you set mode to auto for programs to run on the schedule you set.

Model dehumidifier DDR2611/4011, how do you set the timer? What is the on and off timer for, and the 24 hours?


Boy you know you're in trouble when a web search for your product gives fixya on page 1 google.
There is a product manual for your dehumidifier Sept 2012: but it doesn't say how to set the timer. What a doofus manual.
http://www.danby.com/cms/products/en_manual/Manual_for_DDR26114011_%282%29.pdf
There is a customer care phone number:
http://www.danby.com/en/CA/customer_service

On and OFF are probably manual override, so you can operate unit without timer.
24 hour means a 24-hour military-time clock without am and pm. So 1pm is hour 13, and 8pm is hour 20, and 1am is hour 1, etc.
+/- set the humidity

Best guess for Seting the timer.
Press and release clock (timer) button. You may have to press and hold.
And probably auto start is first thing on menu.
Press + or - button to select start hour from 1 thru 24.
Press clock (timer) button again.
And probably auto stop is next.
Press + or - buttons to select stop hour from 1 thru 24.
Probably you press clock button again to exit timer programming.

After I set my #055671 2-outlet timer to my turn on and turn off times, I cannot get the my lamp to turn on automatically. What setting should the timer be set on ?? Auto off, Auto on? or what?


There is no repair for defective timer.

I suggest setting timer programs, and then press clock button and timer returns to current time.
At this point the timer is operational, and then do not mess with manual override button.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-program-Utilitec-0155671.html

Correct setting is either AUTO ON -or- AUTO OFF setting.
Auto ON, means lamp turns ON immediately and programming resumes at next set point.
Auto OFF, means lamp turns OFF immediately and programming resumes at next set point.
So you have to wait for time to arrive at set point to see if timer is working.

Troubleshoot from link above:
Check that correct time is set.
Check programming for conflicts and overlaps.
For example ON 8:00 pm Tuesday and OFF 10:00 pm All-days-of-week will cause timer not to operate as expected.
Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer to ensure that electrical problems are not causing problem.

Take a moment and rate answer:
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I have a GE Heavy Duty Digital Timer product # 15117. It also says it is a Jasco Product. I am having a problem getting the clock function to work. I can set the time yet I do know see where there is an...


My auto function on my GE outdoor timer didn't work orginally. So, I programmed the "on" time to be 5 minutes from the current time (10:15 p.m.), and the "off" time to be the time I wanted (10:30 p.m.). Then I put it on automatic and waited for 10:15 p.m. to arrive. It turned on. Then, I set the "on" time to 5:30 p.m. and it works fine now. Apparently, it has to cycle through the "on" time in order to activate the auto function.

I have a HB88RC Intermatic 7 day / 7 event timer. I have followed the "easy set instructions" I have program 1 set to turn on X-mas lights at 4:30 PM and go off at 11:30 PM. For all seven...


Just program it as noted previously and put the timer in Auto. Set the clock to 1 min BEFORE your earliest timer program is set to come on. When the clock hits the correct time, it will turn on. Then set the clock to the correct time and you're golden.

Setting the delay on the oven


To correctly proceed you have to know the format the timer program is working in. SO you need to know
1Time format IE 12 hour AM - PM or 24 hr military time 2If a day, date is required M-Sun...or IE Sat 12th of March...(some times this is not a peramiter needed)

With the clock and calendar set the delay time should require a "timed mode setting" prior to being able to set the timer. Once in this mode you will have 1 of 3 ways to set the time delay depending on how the timer is set up to read your instructions. .
1 the actual time of day it is to start (set in actual clock time like the equalivant of 3:05 PM or if in military time, 24hr clock 15:05) or 2 the actual delay time until the program is set to start (again set in hours and minutes 2:10 = 2 hours and 10 minutes from now) 3 also is the stop time, when you want to program to end (also set in the format the timer is programed to recieve instructions)


Also the calendar could be waiting for input as to which day to start the program

• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.
