Spray WD40?
If the timer still works, then the loose part should not be a problem.
The time-now arrow points at about the 1:30 position.
You can rotate dial until current time lines up with approximately 1:30 position.

We can't figure out how to set our timer. Where and what are the segmented pins. Nothing is labeled. There is no diagram with the timer. Thank-you. Joy and Fred.


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.

Brand new Woods Timer (Model 59730) turns on/off correctly, but completely stops during "off" hours every day. When I reset the current time, it runs for about 8-10 hours, then stops. Returned...


It seems odd that you'd get two defective timers.
I bought one of these timers from Home Depot under the GE brand and the dial rotates correctly as time passes.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59730
Woods 59730/ GE 15107 timer is a mechanical timer, so circuit problems should not affect clock motor.
On electronic timers, if circuit is not clean (circuit has ground fault), then timers don't last long and do peculiar things.

My suggestion is to try timer on indoor plug, on a different circuit breaker, for 1 day and see if it keeps running.
This will tell you if outdoor plug might have a loose wire, and that electricity is getting cut off.

Model 59204EV Outdoor Mechanical timer - How do I set it - The pins do not move on my timer - where are the pins located?


Different Woods timers have same model number, depending on who packaged and sold product.
Manuals are sometimes generic. They say pins when they mean segments or tabs.
Segments are small plastic divisions located around outer edge of dial.
They divide 24-hour day into 15 minute or 30 minute periods.
Link below shows sample pins and tabs.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs

With the 15204, I believe these segments pull out or push inward; but they could also pull upward or downward.
Move a couple segments, plug in the timer and lamp, and then manually rotate dial to watch how lamp turns on-off.
Lamp must be turned ON and bulb working.

Some 15204s have a switch on face of timer, or somewhere on timer. Some do not have a switch, and some have a dial. Move switch to TIMER, or to AUTO. Or rotate dial to ON.
