Setting a dawn/dusk timer for the Utilitec 0192773.

I have followed the instructions. The time is set. When I try to program the timer and I select the time, it NEVER cycles to the the sun/moon symbol. I am only able to code in a specific time! When I set it mode to the sun/moon symbol it does not do anything at the selected dawn/dusk times. I have another dawn dusk switch and it works in a similar fashion, but I had no issues setting it to work. Is there a piece I am missing? I have already referenced this document which I have seen posted many times The only time I can get the lights to automatically go on and off is if I hard code in a timed program. But the point was to be able to just say dawn to dusk.

You may have to repeatedly advance the hour setting to get it to change from AM to PM.

SOURCE: I have a utilitech 0192773 self adjusting timer

Do not go to; it's a different company. It's actually at place called TheNCC and is in tiny, tiny print at the bottom of the instructions.

Instead, go to:

You should find a PDF for the product and then zoom in to be able to read the instructions. I was not able to read instructions that came in packaging.

ST01C instructions are confusing, and are longer than space allowed for free answer.
Open following link for re-written instructions that might be clearer, with illustrations how the display should look.

To clear the timer, hold down on-off button and press reset button.
Release reset button and keep holding down on-off until INIT displays.

If you go through re-written instructions and get confused, add a comment with exact step where it is confusing and I'll pull out the ST01C I use for testing and maybe I can find what is causing the problem.

Unable to Program Utilitec 0192773 Timer

Let's figure it out together. I have one of these timers for testing, and can hook it up if needed. Add a comment as needed.
PLEASE read following material, so we are both saying the same thing.

There are two different options for programming.
7-day programming, and dawn-dusk programming.
You choose one or the other
This might be the point of confusion.

Copy following link for larger print instructions.

DST is daylight savings time, and you can choose to have automatic DST adjustment twice per calendar year, or choose not to have DST

Be sure to RESET timer before programming. This will clear any programming glitches.
Make sure that each ON time has an OFF time.
So Program 1 ON is set for day(s), hour, minute
The Program 1 OFF is set for same day(s), hour, minute.
Make sure there are no conflicts between day(s).
If selected time is 12:00, then use 11:59 to avoid am-pm conflicts.

Utilitech #0192773 setting the timer for not working

I do not have repair for defective timer.
Open following link for clear large-print instructions.

Add a comment about part of manual that does not work, for possible additional help.
1) Timer replaces single-pole light switch only.
2) Timer does not have a battery and must be wired correctly before programming can take place.
3) Choose either dawn-dusk or programmable on-off:
Timer can be set for dawn-dusk operation
Timer can be set with 7-day on-off functions of your choice

Bought a Utilitech #0192773 to replace an older and non-working Intermatic SS7 series. The Intermatic had a black wire connected to hot, and a blue wire connected to neutral, and a red wire was capped off...

Utilitec 0192773 replaces single-pole switch and will not work for 3-way applications.

Open following link for clear wiring and programming steps for Utilitec 0192773

Utilitec can also be tricky to program if you are setting up astro dawn-dusk function.

For others finding this thread, same wiring applies to in-wall programmable timers by GE, Woods, Swilight, Sylvania, Tork, Hagar, UPM, Leviton, Grasslin, Wattstopper, Westek, and Intermatic analog timers. Intermatic battery-operated, Brinks and Aube timers are wired differently since they also work for 3-way applications.

Does timer 15071 automatically adjust for changing daylight length in addition to adjusting for daylight savings time?

GE 15071 sold at Home Depot and on-line has feature that adjusts for daylight savings time.
GE 15086 does not offer automatic adjustment for DST

Daylight savings time (DST) is not same as dawn-to-dusk astronomical timer.
GE 15071 and 15086 single-pole timers do not have dawn to dusk astronomical feature.

For single-pole dusk-dawn astronomical with DST, Lowes sells Utilitec-0192773

For 3-way switching, 7-day DST -or- dawn-dusk astronomical:

I am an electrician and my client wants me to reprogram the digital timer (Intermatic) I don't know the model # but it looks like the one on the previous page. Probably the most popular digital wall timer...

Below are links to digital timers to help identify your timer.
Manuals for each timer appear on page.
Programming takes patience, which might be why your customer wants you to do it.
And these 1-year warranty timers go bad, and then timer will not reprogram, which may be another reason why customer wants you to do it.
Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C are battery operated, and will not program if battery is low.
Aube has rechargeable battery that is not replaceable, and this timer will not program if battery is bad.
Other timers shown below have clocks that operate on 120V circuit and require white neutral before display lights up.

Generally each programming is same: You set current time. Some timers you set daylight savings time. Some timers are 7-day, and some offer dusk-to-dawn. For 7-day, you set event1 ON and then event1 OFF for up to 7 programs. You choose the days for each event to operate. Before programming, make a schedule so there are no overlaps or conflicts in programming.
With Intermatic EJ500 and ST01C, event1 is the ON event and event2 is the OFF event, up to 40 events.

Add a comment if you hit trouble spot when programming.
Also fixya offers live phone support for a price.

Intermatic EJ500 with 7-day or dusk-to-dawn
Programming remains in memory forever, so you may only have to re-enter current time.

Intermatic ST01C with 7-day or dusk-to-dawn

Intermatic EI500 7-day

Aube timers are either dusk-to-dawn or 7-day

The light does not stay on until sunrise. This is just since the clocks went back on the 8th November,.

You posted under ST01C.
It sounds like your timer is not set to automatically adjust for DST.

Open following page to see step by step for setting DST to automatic so timer auto-adjusts for DST:
Steps are shown under 'setting current time'

Utilitec 0192773 also has dawn-to-dusk timer with DST option.

How to set utilitech wall timer for dusk/dawn settings

The Utilitec 0192773 timer has astro dusk-to-dawn functions.

The manual is very unclear at the exact point you need it to say how to set dusk-to-dawn.

The following page has the manual, with explanation how to find the astro dawn-to-dusk setting

When you are programming the timer, press TIME button and hours start flashing.
Press the +/- button ... the trick is to keep pushing the +/- button until it finally gets to astro, and the sun-moon symbol shows on display.
When the sun-moon symbol shows, the display also shows AM.
Press the +/- again and PM show.

So if you want Program1 to turn lights ON at dusk (PM), then your display needs to show: 1 ON PM sun-moon.
To continue setting astro, do not set hours, just press PROG button.
Then repeat the steps above until: 1 OFF AM sun-moon show on display.

I have been trying to program my utilitech timer that controlls my front door lights. I have been able to program monday only. I did the same program for the other days but at dust the light will not come...

1) I am going to guess you have the Utilitec 0192773 in-wall timer that replaces a switch
I say this because you are controlling outdoor lights -and- because you have the dusk-to-dawn feature.

2) Short answer: I think you have selected your days incorrectly when programming timer
To review your programs:
Press PROG button once and program1 ON displays
Press PROG again and program1 OFF displays
Press PROG third time, program2 ON displays >> a fourth time progrom2 OFF displays
And so on..

3) I suggest you write out a schedule of your times
Press PROG button and then press TIME button to see your programming: Review the days carefully, review if you have sunrise-sunset selected for each program. You can change the setting while going by using the +- button.

4) As a general rule, programmable timers do not 'operate as expected' if there is a conflicting program. For example program1 says on at 7 and off at 8, and program2 says the opposite.
Suggested solution is make a chart of your settings before programming.

5) Long answer: write out the manual instructions that seem unclear to you

6) To reset everything and start over, push & hold reset button with a paperclip.

Here I am testing the Utilitec timers for wiring and programming difficulties

Utilitech Self-Adjusting Wall Timer- #0192773. Unable to program timer. The instructions are so small it is hard to read them

Utilitec 0192773 is also listed as LW60419
1) Has optional daylight savings plus dawn to dusk programming
2) Electrical wiring must be connected in order to program timer. This is because timer is powered by electric circuit (instead of battery).
3) Program choices:
-Individual days MO TU WE etc
-All 7 days of week

4) Large manual + wiring tips:images load slow with dial-up

5) Enlarged manual
-Click on image to enlarge
-For more size, hold down Ctrl key on keyboard and use scroll-wheel on mouse
