It's a little backward from what I was thinking. The "Stops" haveto be UP for the timer to be OFF. When you want the timer toturn an object ON you push the "Stops" DOWN.Thanks to geno_3245 for posting the initial information.

Ge timer 15131 buzzing

Copy following link to see array of GE analog timers, including 15131: Model numbers and designs change as products are updated to meet new marketing objectives.

Information about 15131 analog timer:
Plug timer into different outlet to eliminate outlet-wiring as possible suspect.
If timer makes noise only when connected to one outlet, then test outlet for loose wires, and feel is outlet is warm, or circuit breaker is warm to touch to indicate electrical problem.

GE15131 is ordinary analog timer with small clock motor inside that rotates timer dial. Motor gears are plastic, and generally very quiet.
So the timer has small motor that could cause humming noise.
There is also a switch that could be partially burned, from use-and-age or overload, and that could be flickering, but you would expect that to happen only when light was ON, and light would probably flicker, or not turn on.
Buy another timer if noise is annoying. These timers have 1 year limited warranty, and can stop functioning within a year or two, just like a $10 Christmas toy might not function very long.
Analog timers sometimes work for many years.

Need instructions to set time for 8 outlet power Strip timer Utilitech

Copy following link to identify power strip timer:

Zilla, Utilitec, GE strip timers use basically the same format for programming.
For each ON time, there has to be a corresponding OFF time, and days for On and Off times cannot conflict.
Best guess: you have a conflict or incomplete on-off program.

With Zilla timer, there is added level of complexity since the ON-OFFs are set for different day and night outlets.

Add a comment with the exact timer model number so expert can read the manual alongside you.

I installed the GE Basic Timer 15070 ok. I set on and off times followint the insdtructions several times. The time will tunr the light on at the set on time but it never turns the light off at the set off...

Something doesn't sound right.
I have two of these timers and cannot figure out what your timer is doing, unless wiring is wrong or timer is defective, or you connected timer to 3-way switch.

15070 is single pole analog timer that requires neutral wire.
Slide switch is set to 'Timer' for automatic timer functions.

Basic timer will not turn the lights off

Open following link to identify timer, read instructions.

I test timers. Some arrive defective.

Also there is a slide switch located on side of timer that has to be set one direction or other.
Move this switch and then manually rotate dial to see how light turns on-off.

I have basic timer # 15417. No instructions came with it and I don't know how to set it..

GE 15417 is electro-mechanical plug-in timer

GE 15417 GE15119 GE15131 are combined in one instruction sheet:

1) Rotate dial until current time lines up with stationary black triangle located in center.
2) Segments around outer dial divide 24-hour day into 48 half-hours. Lift segments for times you want lights to be OFF. Segments down for times you want lights ON.
3) Slide-switch on side of timer is manual override. To use timer function, set switch to 'Timer ON'
4) Plug light into timer, plug timer into wall.
5) Maximum load is usually around 500Watts >> check markings on timer for exact load capability.

GE Digital Time Switch (15132) for basic landscape lighting

Leave the breaker off, remove the wires from the timer and just connect them. then turn the power on. Unless you have a short somewhere, the lights should come on. What you have just done is made the breaker your switch. If the breaker kicks you know to keep looking for a short as it is not the timer. Regards, Joe
