Outdoor lights timer: Intermatic HB851 photo timer with dial. How do I set it for dusk ON then off in 8 hrs.


Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.
To set for ON at dusk, and off 8 hours later, rotate dial to the number 8.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk.
Timer set to 8 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 8 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on again.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 8 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 8 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until dawn.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

How do I get it to start at dusk and run for 4 hours


You posted under Intermatic make HB51 timer.

If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

To set for ON at dusk, and off 4 hours later, rotate dial to the number 4.
Timer turns on automatically at dusk because timer has photo eye.
Timer set to 4 hours will start countdown when timer turns ON > and 4 hours later timer will turn off.

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 4 hour countdown.
A car pulling in driveway can cause feedback.
If timer resets because of feedback, it begins 4 hour countdown again, so lights will not turn off until much later than planned, or not turn off until dusk.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

I set the timer for 6 hours, it went on at dusk but it blinks instead of staying on.


Two things can cause problem.
1) defective timer
2) feedback from nearby lights

Make sure timer is turned away from lights so photo-eye doesn't receive feedback.
Feedback is when the photo eye gets too much light, and then timer thinks it's dawn, so lights turn off, and a moment later photo eye thinks it's dusk again and lights turn on again.
Feedback from lights will cause timer to reset the 6 hour countdown.
A car pulling in the driveway can cause feedback.
If the timer resets because of feedback, it begins the 6 hour countdown again, so the lights will not turn off until much later, or at dawn.

You can test timer by putting black tape over photo eye, and then timer will turn on.
Set timer for 2 hours for example and then check if timer turned off 2 hours later.

If timer is not functioning correctly, then timer is defective.

How do I set it and can I use it indoors?


I see nothing in the manual that says 'outdoor use only' EXCEPT timer runs on photoelectric eye.
Timer turns ON automatically at dusk, so if timer is inside, and indoor lights are ON, then timer stays OFF.

To use timer outdoors.
Plug timer into wall.

Rotate dial to set how long timer will stay ON.
Set timer to turn OFF 2 4 6 8 Hours after dusk

We need clear instructions for setting the timer


Woods makes several outdoor timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Image that shows with this post is Woods model #49647.
Below are instructions for #49647 timer.

If your timer is different, add a comment with model number and I'll post instructions for that timer.

Woods model #49647 is outdoor timer with photoelectric control that turns timer ON at dusk.
There are 4 possible settings that show on dial.
Rotate dial to make timer selection.
OFF = timer is OFF full-time until you change dial.
ON = timer is ON full-time until you change dial.
Dusk-Dawn = timer turns ON at dusk and OFF at dawn
2, 4, 6, 8 hours = timer turns ON at dusk, and turns OFF 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours later.

Dual Outlet Timer won't shut lights off, even though pins are in the right place. Do you turn on the lights before attaching timer, or let the timer do that?


The timer dial should turn lights on and off.
The lamp switch has to be turned on for the timer to work.
It sounds odd that the timer will turn ON the lights but not turn them OFF.
Make sure your pins are pushed all the way into place.

With older timers, the pins wear out or the tripper lever wears out, and this could cause the problem you describe.
