Non-digital lighting timer will not keep the correct current time?

I've been resetting this timer for the past few days because it never keeps up with the current time. It looks like it's going a bit slow, but I'm not sure. All I know is the current time is wrong when I check back a few hours later. I have it set to timer, not outlet. I've also double checked that I'm using the buttons correctly (down for on, up for off). I can hear the spinner/motor inside running. It's been in use daily for about three months so far. Time to get a new one, or can I fix it?

SOURCE: Casio Wave Captor Watch wont set to correct time.

You need to manually adjust or set the hands to the home position as they are not where the watch thinks they should be. This can happen when you bring your watch close to a strong magnetic field. Look in the manual to do this. Afterwards your watch should set to the correct time.

After cussing at the thing for a while to get its attention,
I thought the problem over and fixed it as follows:

I went into the setup menu and selected the "reset default option. The set went to blue screen. The next step was to rescan the channels. Then in the time setup menu I turned off the automatic time update. So far have not had any more problems.

Utilitech wall timer


Utilitec timers do not have replaceable batteries.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-LW60418.html
Older timer designs have batteries, while more modern timers have internal rechargeable battery that is integral with circuit board, and cannot be replaced. The battery holds memories in event of power outage, but current time must be reset if power is out for extended time.
If you have continual problems with failed timers, then have electrician friend run test on your power for spikes, shortages and surge that will cause timers and other non-hardened electronics to fail frequently. Also check for polarity and grounding issues. Also if you have motors, other electronics and/or fluorescent lights on same circuit, this can cause interference.
Also check load limitations, and load on timer to make sure you are not exceeding the timer rating. For example using timer to control motor when timer is rated for non-inductive incandescent loads.
Reset timer using reset button, and then re-program. Buy another timer at Lowes and return defect in new package for refund.
Buy Intermatic ST01C timer. This timer uses CR2 battery, and timer electronics operate separately from electric line. Rated for any load: motors, cfl bulbs, led, incandescent, etc.

I need to know how to reset the timer


If you reset ST01C timer using reset button, then all programs are lost, plus current time of day.
Generally this timer needs to be reset if error message appears and as last resort for troubleshooting problem. Timer does not need to be reset after battery goes bad, all you do is set current time of day, and then program remain inside timer indefinitely (or until timer is reset of goes bad)
If setting current time of day does not work, you use reset button.
For ez programming steps with illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

How to reset ST01C using reset button:
Push and hold ON-OFF button and then push reset button using toothpick or paperclip.
Release reset button but keep holding ON-OFF button until INIT displays.
Then release ON-OFF and 12:00 should be flashing.
If timer functionality does not restore, then try replacing timer battery.
If functionality will not restore, then timer is bad.
This timer does not need electric current for setting timer, so timer display is not dependent on circuit breaker.

If you have a different timer, then add a comment with in-focus photo of timer for possible identification. Most other timers do not require 2-button reset procedure.

The timer flashes, "no-op". Refuses to turn


no-op means 'no operation.

The manual says last resort to revive non-working timer is RESET timer.
This action will delete current day setting and all programming

Hold down ON/OFF and use paper clip to push in reset button for 2 seconds.
Release reset button but keep holding ON/OFF button down until INIT flashes on screen
Then release ON/OFF button and 12:00 should display.

At this point, timer can be re-programmed.
Simple step by step shows on following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

If timer will not accept programs, or operate after RESET, then timer has gone bad.
ST01C comes with 1 year limited warranty.
Most in-wall timers have same limited warranty.

Replacing timer:
-Advantage of ST01C is timer does not need Neutral wire to operate, and wiring can be simple.
-If you are using ST01C for 3-way switching, then easiest thing is to replace with same timer.
-If you are using timer as astronomic dawn-dusk, then replacements include EJ500, Utilitec 0192773, Aube T1034, T1070, T1072, T1073.
-If you are using timer for 7-day operations then there are numerous options:

Utilitech self-adjusting wall timer 0192773. I hooked up the timer (4 wires). The automatic modes does not work and will not turn on and off the lights on set times. All it will do is turn lights on and...


http://waterheatertimer.org/Program-wire-Utilitec-0192773.html

I have been testing the 0192773, and other timers, for wire and program difficulties.
Good news: your timer is wired correctly. This timer will not operated lights with incorrect wiring.

programming steps are long, but same as other programmable timers.
The 0192773 is a 7-day or sunrise/sunset timer

1) Most programmable timers will not 'work as expected' if there is a conflict in programming.
They suggest you make a schedule of times before programming

2) One of the things this timer offers are individual days -or- groups of days > for example weekend only -or- weekdays only -or- all days of week -plus- individual days. For me, it was a bit confusing keeping that straight while programming

3) Each Program has ON time and OFF time
So Program1 ON has to be set same days as Program1 OFF

4) The other difficulty was how fast the display shifted back to current time when I was programming. If I looked at the instructions for a moment, my display would change before I could catch up. So it's possible that an ON or OFF time could be missed easily.

5) Finally, if you are using the timer as a sunrise/sunset, you need to enter Sunrise or Sunset with program1 ON and program1 OFF

I think the problem is in your programs:
You can use paperclip and hold in reset button for a few seconds and start over
Or
You can press PROG button and and re-check and re-set each program.

By the way, when setting current time, I noticed the timer let you chose a year up to the year 2099. I thought that was an optimistic outlook for both operator and timer.

If you keep hitting the program button after making sure no program events are set, it just keeps cycling back through the 1-7 day program event options.


The ST01C programming is long and hard to understand
Intermatic has posted a EZ-version for programming
http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20indoor%20timers/in-wall%20timers/st01c.aspx

http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html

First of all, you have to set current date on all brands of programmable timers before programming. On some timers, the wiring has to be correct before the timer will let you program.
If you have the ST01C, push the reset button with a paper clip until time flashes to 12:00, and then start over

When I have a problem with a timer, I go back to the manual and start writing out the instructions.
If you can write the instructions, then they usually make better sense >>> and then you wonder who wrote the manual.

Finally, the ST01C, and most digital timers, come with a 1-year limited warranty >> timers go bad.

I have a digital wall timer that allows for settings over multiple days. Trued to reset it (remove a few memorized settings) by pushing 'reset'; but this had no effect. Do I need to press it for a longer...


You posted the question under ST01C timer.
This timer will clear all programs if you hold reset in for a few seconds until the screen starts blinking 12:00. The reset button is a small round button that you push with a paper clip.
The ST01C memory for current day can be cleared by removing battery for a couple minutes, but the day-to-day programming remains forever until timer is reset.

Each timer tends to follow the same pattern as described above when there is a small round reset that is pushed with a paper clip >> push, hold for a few seconds, timer resets.

Other timers have a larger button for Reset ... the timers with larger reset button usually require you to hold the clock button and reset button at the same time ... or some other button besides clock has to be pushed at same time with reset. You can try different combinations of buttons and hold both down for a few seconds.

If you reply to this response with your exact model and brand timer, I can look up the specifics for most timers
