The problem with answering questions where somebody cannot program a timer, or programming stopped working, is that expert doesn't know if timer is defective, or needs to be reset, or timer has conflicting programming, or if person has mis-read the instruction manual, or if wrong button sequence is being used, or if internal battery has gone bad, or if circuit has interference or loose wiring, or if light bulb burned out, and however expert guesses, the person asking question is unhappy because the timer still doesn't work and/or the manual still doesn't make sense.

I work with timers every day and suggest the following steps to get started:
Reset timer and try setting program again.
Write out steps in manual at point where timer doesn't seem to work.
Double-check that you are pushing correct buttons all the way down.
Make sure same days of operation are selected for ON and for OFF. For example if ON is set for all days, and OFF is set for Tuesday, then timer will not work as expected.
Reset timer and make sure there are no conflicting or overlapping programs, or timer will not work as expected.
Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer from home center, try timer on different outlet, try timer on different Load, check that Load works when plugged into outlet without the timer.
Save some headaches listed above, and buy another 15089 at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

SOURCE: Problem programming timer settings. Is it supposed to be random or continuous?

1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006



2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html



3) 50001 timer is not random vacation timer like the 50003.
50000 series timers by Woods have 1 year limited warranty, and they are a new design released this year. However the analog timer design has been around for many years.


4) If timer is acting randomly, then
a) timer is defective,
b) the override switch is not fully positioned at 'timer on,'
c) segments are not lifted fully in position,


5) ... other more remote causes: outlet might not test 80% rated voltage?, outlet might have reversed polarity?


5) Try timer on different outlet with different light.


6) As the timer dial rotates, the segments push small lever, and the lever moves switch that turns lights on-off. I suppose if this lever was broken or switch was broken, then timer would act more randomly.

Actually the timer dial can be either day or night, but usually the dark background with white numbers is 6 pm to 6am (night time)
While the white background with dark numbers is 6 am to 6 pm (daytime)

We have a honeywell cm921 and we cant set the therm astat to come on in the mornijng and then go off then come on again in the afternoon on timer please can you help


Your CM921 has 6 built in temperature settings based on time of day:

1 - 6:30 AM
2 - 8:00 AM
3 - 12:00 PM
4 - 2:00 PM
5 - 4:00 PM
6 - 10:30 PM

meaning that at 6:30 AM the themostat will change its temperature setting to setting 1, at 8:00 AM it will change the temperature setting to setting 2, and so on. To schedule temperature settings which best fit you, determine which time periods you would like more or less heat.

For instance, to fit what you requested in your question you could program a temperature you would like to maintain in the morning and afternoon times when you would like it to be on, and in the time periods in between set a lower temperature as follows:

1 - 20C
2 - 16C
3 - 16C
4 - 20C
5 - 20C
6 - 16C

With this example your thermostat would turn on at 6:30 AM as long as the temperature was below 20C and maintain that temperature until 8:00 AM. At 8 it would change its setting to 16C allowing temperature to drop from 8 AM to 2 PM to a lower setting to conserve energy until afternoon time when the setting would change back to 20C from 2 PM to 10:30 and then change back to 16C to save energy throughout the night. The actual temperatures would be at your discretion based on your individual comfort level.

Pages 5 and 6 of the following link will guide you in setting each of the 6 temperature settings.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

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 grow light is on a timer and was off last night when it was suppose to be on i played around with it and got it on, but once again as soon as it went off wont go back on... Maybe it is something to do...


check and make sure you have the timer right am/pm.also the mechanism that rotates the timer might also be bad or going bad.if the am/pm timing is set right i would try another one from your local home center and if it works its likely the timing mechanism.
