SOURCE: I bought a utilitech three

I bought one also but am taking it back today as I am not satisfied with the performance and the internal battery dies losing all programming. The instructions below are word for word from the manual but not all that clear. Since I can't post the diagram from http://www.thencc.com/westinghouse/LS/Instruction/T28499_TimerManual.pdf (if I can post links here), I substituted words in the "Set Mode" section instead. This is for the Utilitech 0149289 model and also applies to the Westinghouse and Stanley equals. Good luck.

Outdoor 3-Outlet Photocell Timer


Photocell is 'seeing' lights and thinks it's dawn so it turns off.
When lights are off, timer thinks it's night and clicks back on.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#troubleshoot

1) Turn photoeye away from lights.
2) Buy new timer since photoeye is first thing to malfunction on cheap Christmas timers.
3) Buy new timer at Lowes, and return defect in new package

I have tried to install the Utilitech timer but am having trouble. I have a ground, black, and red wire that were previously wired to a switch that controlled my outdoor garage lights. I tried to hook red...


Sounds like this was probably a three-way switch you are replacing as there is no neutral (white) wire in the box. If so, you can splice the white wire to the green wire in other three-way switch box; then hook the green wire in the box you are placing the timer to the white wire of the Utilitech timer.

Need instruction to set a utilitech outdoor 3-outlet photocel timer #0149289


It seems there is more than 1 Utilitec 014289 outdoor timer.
Each has same buttons, but different words under each button.

One has 'week-hour-min' on top row.
Other has 'manu-mode-prog' on top row

Manuals for both types appear on link below
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#6-week

Manuals contain more useful information and illustrations than I can type in an answer and the manuals seem straightforward. If you need help with specific programming steps, add a comment with identification which manual applies to your timer. I will be glad to help for free.

You can also take advantage of fixya phone support.
Fixya expert will walk you through the steps for a price.
