SOURCE: timer won't turn off or on by itself

Pull the pin up wait and see if it comes on you will know then. Most do pull up but there are a few that have the pin that has to be shoved in. 90% however do have to be pulled up to set the timer for off and on.

Testimonial: "The problem was trying to decide if the pins up or down turned it on and off. I think I have it figured out now. UP (i think) makes it turn off & on."

If plug-in timer does not display, then
1) Reset button has tripped > push reset with paper clip
2) power is off > plug something else in receptacle to check receptacle
3) timer is loose in receptacle > unplug timer, spread prongs a bit, and plug back in
4) timer has gone bad.

Except for a few Woods and Intermatic outdoor timers, plug-in timers have internal rechargeable battery. Battery is not replaceable so when battery goes bad, the timer is bad.

See other Woods plug-in timers:

If you buy a timer, save the instructions like gold so you don't have to write fixya next year looking for instruction that nobody can find.

The reset button is small round button with R
I assume you push reset button with toothpick
The manual is unclear if you need to press another button at same time to reset timer

Manual says: If needed, pressing "R" will cancel the current setting,
pressing "R" a second time will undo the change.

Why is my IIIWoods 50013 outdoor 24 hour timer switching to OFF regardless of setting? How do I fix it?


First start with the reset button, clears out all past commands.
First the clock has to be set to the proper day and time, It might be in the 24 system versus AM and PM you can find this out by stepping through all the hours when the time comes on. To set clock press Set and see what is flashing, if it is the day, scroll to the right day and hit set, now time should flash scroll to right hour, press set, right minutes, press set, right seconds, press set; Now the clock should be set.
Next you do the programs you want again go through same process, hit program 1 should flash press set, now the days should flash, scroll through till you have the right combo of days, one day, all days of week, Sat, Sun, then last the whole week will flash, if that is the one you want then press set, now press set and the times should flash for hour.
pick the time you want to come on, hit set for hour, minute, second, then hit set again now hit the program button again and it should say off, go through the same steps and set hour, minute second then hit set for last time. In a few minutes it should change to reading the time on the screen. Then you have to wait and see if it works. To do a mini version, see if it will work get a lamp plug in set all the above but use a very short on off time like 4 or 5 mins, then you will know if it is going to work right. then set for the correct time. good luck hope it helps. If it all messes up just hit reset and start all over, REMEMBER it can't so anything until the time of day is set right that's the starting point.

Kodak digital frame shuts off after 5 to 15 seconds


This sounds like a setting issue on the photo frame. You should check for a timer for screen time on the frames menu.

How to open to repair Woods 24 Hour Digital Outdoor Timer with Photocell Mfr # 13660


1) Copy following link to identify timer, and select replacement if needed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#2001

2) There is no reset button on this type of timer.
Nor is there a repair manual for $16 timers.
Generally people buy another timer since the timing chips and parts are delicate, easily damaged by power surge, and often quit working before 1 year warranty expires, and usually last a few years before no longer functioning. The photoeye sensor is often a failure point.

3) Check outlet for 80% rated voltage.
Check timer on different outlet.
Use circuit analyzer and test outlet for correct polarity and grounding.
Test and replace GFCI outlets as needed.

HOW DO I RESET THE LAMP TIMER ON A SONY KDF55WF655

Use the Remote Commander to put the set into service mode to display the service menus.

GE Indoor Outdoor Timer # 15306 the clock is working and the when the time for it to go on it goes on but when the time comes for it to shut off it does not trip the off switch. I then have to shut it down...


1) If analog dial keeps time, I can only guess that OFF tripper is not in position correctly, or tripper is worn or defective, or that manual override lever is defective. Trippers are made of softer metal so they wear down before other parts of timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/GE%2015306%20Mechanical%20Outdoor%20Box%20Timer-24%20Hour.jpg
2) Buy Tork P47 trippers to replace GE 15306 trippers
http://waterheatertimer.org/Tork-timers-and-manuals.html#Trippers

3) Open following link for GE timer resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15306

4) 15306 is heavy-duty indoor-outdoor version of Tork 1800 series or 7200 series 120Volt analog timer that is sold online and at Home Depot under GE brand name.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Tork-1800-600.jpg

5) You can buy new timer at Home Depot and return defective one in new package.

6) The on and off trippers are attached to the analog dial.
Dial rotates as time passes.
Trippers make physical contact with the manual override lever. The ON tripper pushes lever one direction and the OFF tripper moves lever other direction.
The override lever rotates a cam located on back of timer that opens and closes electrical contacts.

If you have different timer, hints below might apply.

1) I test timers, and some arrive defective, and some go bad within a year, but most last a few years.
2) To reset timer, unplug for several minutes, plug back in, and then re-program.
3) Move timer to plug on different circuit breaker and see if same problem occurs.
4) If you have another kind of timer in the house, move it to same plug as problem-timer and see if different timer also looses time.
5) Use circuit analyzer to check if circuit has problem. Circuit problems will affect timer electronics.
6) If timer is clean and new-looking: buy another one from Lowes or Home Depot or Target and then return defective one in new package.

1) No the timer has internal rechargeable battery.
Battery is not replaceable.

2) I test timers, 4-6% arrive defective. Most go bad within few years. Some last long time.

3) If you set timer to turn ON at dusk, and turn OFF 2 hours later, then reflected light or car lights can give photoeye feedback so timer thinks it's light. Timer turns off and resets. I don't know if this information applies to you.

The unit is programmed to come on at 5:00 p.m. and go off at 11:30 p.m. It was wooking but now the lights won't come on.


Three things can cause lights not to come on:
1) Timer has gone bad.
Try resetting and reprogramming timer. Make sure you have correct mode.
I test timers. 4-6% arrive defective and most quit within a year or two.
Some go bad within a month.
If display does not show, then check battery.
Most timers have internal rechargeable battery that is not replaceable.
When rechargeable battery goes dead, timer is bad.
2) Light bulb burned out or lamp turned OFF.
3) Receptacle has no power. Plug lamp in directly and see if bulb comes on.
