Question about Hardware & Accessories

How do I set the clock? The included instructions for setting the clock do not work. I can set all the programmed on & off times, days of week, etc., everything except the friggin' clock. The cl

The timer is installed correctly & otherwise working fine, all 4 wires (hot, load, neutral & ground) are present and connected to their respective terminals. Programming was also fairly simple. My only problem is that I am unable to set the current time. (Year, Month, Date, Day, hour & minute). The instructions for setting the clock are clear, but those instructions do not work for setting the clock. The "time" button appears to be no-op. Also the link that someone here is referring folks to is **not** the correct link for the current model of this timer even though the model # is identical. The instructions you are linking folks to apply to an older model (which has the exact same model number) but completely different instructions and the buttons aren't even the same.

Give us the model number so we can see what you're talking about. Tell us what link you have tried, and how the instructions seem to be different.

Display showing no-op is sometimes associated with defective timer, bad battery. Resetting timer will clear memories and restore functionality in some cases.

Testimonial: "Thanks Gene - I thought I had included the model. It was the UtiliTech #0141224, for which the link provided is not the correct model, as the instructions for this newest version has substantially changed. At any rate, I exchanged it for another identical unit and the replacement works fine, so the original was defective. Thx."

SOURCE: I have a Et 70115C

A) 5 terminal ET70115C.
Voltage selector set to 240.

B) BUT you say you have 120Volts from breaker >>> confusing, so I'm proceeding on basis that you meant to say 240V from breaker.
Add a comment at any time.

C) Review timer:
5-terminal ET70115 timer has NO and NC terminals
NC is normally closed >> this terminal has power when timer is OFF
NO is normally open >> this terminals has power when timer turns ON
For water heater, you want NO terminal 4 so water heater turns ON when timer turns ON

D) Wire for 240Volt water heater

Two hot wires from breaker connect to terminals 1 and 2. This powers timer clock.
Jumper wire connects between terminal 2 to terminal 3. This sends power to the switch circuit.
Wires to water heater connect to terminals 1 and 4

E) 5-terminal timer turns off 1 hot wire to 240V water heater.
Turning off 1 hot wire will stop 240V circuit from working; Water heater thermostats also turn off one hot wire.
240V water heater has black and red wire.
Wire from terminal 4 should connect to Black wire on water heater.

Diagram shows two wires on terminal 1
Two wires on terminal 2
One jumper wire on terminal 3
One wire on terminal 4
Zero wires on terminal 5

Woods 59018 single-pole 7-day 7-program timer, color white:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59028

I test timers and 3-5% arrive defective, and they never work. Some stop working within 1 year, and some last quite a while.
Timers are affected by line interference and polarity issues. So wiring in home has to be correct before timer will operate as expected.
Timer has to be installed correctly with each wire correctly connected.
Press manual override button and see if lights turn on-off. This will indicate if your timer is wired correctly. If lights do not turn on-off with manual override, the open link above for wiring instructions.
To begin programming, reset timer by pushing in the round reset button with toothpick or paper clip.
12:00 am Mon should display.
If the above items are all correct, then defective timer is suspect.
If you try multiple timers, and each timer has same problem, then line interference or bad wiring is suspect, or you are buying from somebody who has a bad batch of timers.
Try wiring same timer at neighbor's house and see if it works there.

I WOULD NEED SOMEONE TO TALK ME THROUGH IN PERSON , HOW TO PROGRAM THE TIMER FOR 8AM TURN OFF AND 8PM TURN LIGHT ON EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR - THE SAME TIME ...


If you want someone to talk to you, you will have to pay for phone help.

Here are the simplified instructions.


Press Mode to step thru various options, you only need to get to CLK.

Then set the hour, minute and day of the week first.

If you want the timer to go on & off at the same time for 7 days, you must program 7 times.

Good luck, Gary


Setting the Time of Day

Press MODE to go to the Clock (CLK) settings. The display will flash with 12:00 AM.

Press HOUR+ to stop the flashing.

Press HOUR+ and M+ to set the current time in hours and minutes.

Make sure that AM and PM settings are correct.

Note: The day of the week is shown at the bottom of the display. If you have not programmed the calendar settings,

be sure to also set the current day of the week while programming the current time. To do this, press DAY until the
correct day of the week is shown. The CLOCK settings are now complete.

Press MODE to go to the first PGM screen. See Fig.9

Use DAY, H+ and M+ buttons to set the days, hours and specific times that you would like the timer to turn ON.

(NOTE: Be sure the word ON is displayed when setting the ON time.)

Press NEXT ON/OFF to program an OFF time.
Repeat the same steps for all 7 ON/OFF operations, if required.

Problem #1. On model #DT300 the instructions under Set Time of Day # 3 does not change the day. The only place I can get the day/s to change is under the programming. What is wrong with it. I have...


Thank you for very clear question, and timer identification.
1) I don't have repair for defective timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-timers-and-manuals.html#DT300
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/DT300-series-manual.pdf

2) Choose DT300 format
#3 says to press-and-hold CLOCK button until display shows 24H or 12H
Then release CLOCK button.
Next press HOUR button to select either 12H or 24H
This lets you choose am-pm format -or- choose military-time format where 11pm is 23

3) Set current time
Press-and-hold CLOCK button throughout whole current time setting.
Do not release CLOCK button until current time settings are finished.
Next, press HOUR button, and then MINUTE button, and then DAYS button until current hour, minute and day display.
Then release CLOCK button.
If this step does not work, then timer has gone bad.
Replace with locally available Utilitec 155671 from Lowes or Westek TE06WHB from Target
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59377

4) How to set DT300 timer program for full week of operation.
Each program requires you to set program 1 ON time and program 1 OFF time
Be careful to avoid program conflicts and overlaps so timer works as expected.

For program 1 ON time, you press PROGRAM button until 1 and ON display.
Release Program button.
Then select hour, minute and days. In this case you want all days of week, so you keep pressing DAYs button until whole week displays: Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su

Then you set program 1 OFF time, you press PROGRAM button again until 1 and OFF display.
Release Program button.
Then select hour, minute and days. In this case you want all days of week, so you keep pressing DAYs button until whole week displays: Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa Su

If you set ON time for all days of week, and OFF time for Tu Tuesday, then timer will not work correctly.

Add a comment any time.

You have wired your timer correctly and the lights turn on when you push on-off button.
If lights do not turn on, we need to review the wiring.
Your timer looks like photo below.
geno_3245.gif

I'm going to parrot back the manual with some extra words.
To start, press the reset button and clear any programming

Programing overview:
Each program has ON time ... and OFF time
So you set program1 ON and then set program1 OFF
When you set program1 ON, you choose the Day, hour and minute you want program1 to turn ON.
And then you set program1 OFF, and choose Day, hour and minute for program1 to turn OFF.
Your ON-OFF times for program1 should be on same days.
For example program1 ON for all-days-of-the-week, but program1 OFF is for TU Tuesday, then timer will not work.
IN this case, program1 OFF should also be set for all-days-of-the-week.
Let's start.

Setting the clock:
Press and hold CLOCK button
Keep holding CLOCK button and press DAY button until display shows current day (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)
Press Hour button until current hour with am pm displays
Press MIN button until current minute displays.
Release clock button and current day and time show on display
At no other part of instructions do you press and hold one button while pressing other button.

Setting programs:
Press PROG button until "1" and 'ON' show on display
This is program1 ON
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 ON.
You can choose: all-days-of-the-week and MO TU WE TH FR SA SU show on display
Choose individual days and MO or TU etc shows in display
Choose weekdays MO TU WED TH FR
Weekends SA SU show in display
Next step
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 ON
Press MIN to select minute for program1 ON

Now program1 ON is ready, next, you will set program1 OFF

Press PROG button until "1" and 'OFF' shows on display
This is program1 OFF
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 OFF.
( Remember, you want same days for ON and OFF)
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 OFF
Press MIN to select minute for program1 OFF

Now program1 ON and OFF are ready, next, you will set program2 ON by repeating same steps above.
You can set up to 7 programs.
If you don't want to set program2, or any more programs, that's fine.

To exit programming and save your program, press CLOCK.
Now current time shows in display.

Final step: set MODE
Press MODE button until AUTO shows in display. You want AUTO for programming to operate lights. That's it, timer is ready.
If you're going on vacation, press MODE button until RDM shows in display, and then timer turns lights on-off at random

Copy and save these instructions to your computer so you have them next year.

How do i program the timer?


You did not specify UPM outdoor timer model.
1)ET525C has 7 buttons, and is shaped like a computer mouse, and has a photocell
2)DT420 & ET420 are dusk-to-dawn timers with clear plastic cover
3)DT523 is dusk-to-dawn and shaped like apple phone
4) PT555 is box-type with a door and timer has 6 screw terminals

I'm going to shoot-wild and offer programming for the one shaped like a mouse, the ET525c.
Here is manual
Download manual if you have high-speed, so you can see print larger.
Manual has 10 pages so I can't repeat everything. You will have to read along with your copy of manual.
1) Timer has MODE choices: I will help you program specific on-off times.
2) Setting the clock: Press SET > press Up-Down to choose day of the week ... if today's newspaper says Friday, set timer to Friday
3) Press Set again to confirm day of week
4) Press arrows to set hour. If your watch says 10:30 am, click arrow until 10 am shows
5) Press Set to confirm hour
6) Press arrow to set minutes, until minutes match your watch.
7) Press Set again to confirm everything.

Clock is displayed now

Programming timer:
Timer gives you 20 programs
PROG1 PROG2 etc to 20
Each program needs a DAY it will operate
Each program has ON time, and OFF time
PROG1 ON
PROG1 OFF
Select PROG1 using UP key
Manual page 6 has diagram showing how display looks
Press UP until PROG1 ON shows
Notice: PROG shows in upper right corner, and 1 ON displays to the right of time
This means PROG1 ON

Note: sometimes the instructions say press UP, and sometimes they say press UP or Down ... when in doubt, write out the instructions, and it helps you understand.

Now press Set to begin
Press UP and different days will show. MO for Monday, Weekdays, weekends.
Press Set to confirm days you want PROG1 to turn ON
Press UP or DOWN to set hour you want PROG1 to turn ON
Press Set to confirm hour
Press UP or DOWN to set minutes you want PROG1 to turn ON
Press Set to confirm hour

Half way done with PROG1, you need to set PROG1 OFF times

Press UP until PROG1 OFF shows
Look at display, and look at figure page 6 manual
To right of time is number 1 with tiny word OFF, in upper right corner of display is PROG

Press Set to start
Press arrows until day shows (default will flash same days you picked for ON times) Tip: keep the same days!!! or timer will reset ON times for some reason.
Press Set to confirm days timer will turn PROG1 OFF
Press UP and DOWN to set hour for PROG1 OFF
Press Set to confirm hour
Press UP and DOWN to set minutes for PROG1 OFF

To advance to PROG2, PROG3, PROG4-20, press UP key

To end programing mode, press DOWN
If no keys are touched for 1 minute, timer returns to clock mode

Instructions carry on with more options, if problems persist, take aspirin and post again in the morning.

Timer record set


Make sure the clock is set. Since the clock must be set before the timer will work, be sure you have entered an accurate date, day of the week, and time (including AM or PM). And always check the clock after a power outage. Also, check that your videotape does not have the tab removed which protects against further recording.
