Model dehumidifier DDR2611/4011, how do you set the timer? What is the on and off timer for, and the 24 hours?


Boy you know you're in trouble when a web search for your product gives fixya on page 1 google.
There is a product manual for your dehumidifier Sept 2012: but it doesn't say how to set the timer. What a doofus manual.
http://www.danby.com/cms/products/en_manual/Manual_for_DDR26114011_%282%29.pdf
There is a customer care phone number:
http://www.danby.com/en/CA/customer_service

On and OFF are probably manual override, so you can operate unit without timer.
24 hour means a 24-hour military-time clock without am and pm. So 1pm is hour 13, and 8pm is hour 20, and 1am is hour 1, etc.
+/- set the humidity

Best guess for Seting the timer.
Press and release clock (timer) button. You may have to press and hold.
And probably auto start is first thing on menu.
Press + or - button to select start hour from 1 thru 24.
Press clock (timer) button again.
And probably auto stop is next.
Press + or - buttons to select stop hour from 1 thru 24.
Probably you press clock button again to exit timer programming.

User's guide for kambrook electronic timer kd94


Could not find a free guide, but e-how lists the basic instructions.
Instructions
    • 1 Set the day and time on the timer. Press and hold "Clock." While holding the "Clock" button, press "Day" to scroll through the days of the week and select the correct one. Press the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the correct time. Release "Clock" when you are finished.
    • 2 Press "Prog" set the "On" time for the switch. The word "On" and the number "1" will appear on the left side of the display.
    • 3 Press "Day" to choose an individual day or a block of days. Choosing an individual day means that this specific program will only activate on that day; choosing a block of days means that the program will be active on each day in the chosen block.
    • 4 Set the time that you want the timer to switch on by using the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the appropriate time. Press "Prog" when you are done to complete your entry of the "On" time.
    • 5 Select the "Off" time for your timer by using the "Day," "Hours" and "Min" buttons to choose when you want the timer to switch off. Press "Prog" again to save this entry. Repeat steps two through six to set additional timers.
    • 6 Press "Day" and "Hours" to activate the random timer mode. An "R" will appear on the LCD screen, indicating that the timer is in Random mode. This will cause your timer to switch on and off at different times, following no set pattern.
    • 7 Press the button that looks like a hand with the index finger extended to perform a manual override. The display will show you whether it is in Manual or Auto mode, and whether it is turned on or off. "Manual On" means that the time is switched permanently on while "Manual Off" indicates that the timer is turned off. "Auto Off" activates the program that you have set, while "Auto On" turns the time on until the next schedule "Off" time, after which it continues to follow your programmed times.
    • 8 Press "Clock" and "Prog" at the same time to use the countdown feature. Use the "Hours" and "Min" buttons to select the length of the countdown, and press "Manual" to start.
    • 9 To reset the entire unit and clear all programmed times, use the end of a paper clip or a ball-point pen to press the "Reset" button, located above the "Manual" button.

After I set my #055671 2-outlet timer to my turn on and turn off times, I cannot get the my lamp to turn on automatically. What setting should the timer be set on ?? Auto off, Auto on? or what?


There is no repair for defective timer.

I suggest setting timer programs, and then press clock button and timer returns to current time.
At this point the timer is operational, and then do not mess with manual override button.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-program-Utilitec-0155671.html

Correct setting is either AUTO ON -or- AUTO OFF setting.
Auto ON, means lamp turns ON immediately and programming resumes at next set point.
Auto OFF, means lamp turns OFF immediately and programming resumes at next set point.
So you have to wait for time to arrive at set point to see if timer is working.

Troubleshoot from link above:
Check that correct time is set.
Check programming for conflicts and overlaps.
For example ON 8:00 pm Tuesday and OFF 10:00 pm All-days-of-week will cause timer not to operate as expected.
Test outlet with cheap circuit analyzer to ensure that electrical problems are not causing problem.

My Woods 59202 Lamp Timer doesn't have a switch labelled "ON/AUTO" as per the instructions, but obviously the only switch on it, labelled "ON/OFF" is the manual override. The problem is...


There are two timers that look very similar.
Woods 59201 programmable timer with settable on-off functions and switch with ON-AUTO
Woods 59202 random vacation timer that has preset on-off functions and switch with ON-OFF
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59201

Random vacation timers are not programmable.
They have internal pins that are preset for random on-off functions so house appears occupied while you vacation.
Random timers do not have AUTO setting, instead they are either ON or OFF.

Technically, programmable timers are also either ON or OFF, but usually these timers use the word AUTO, so you know lamp will turn on AUTOmatically based on settings.

Need instructions to program Intermatic Model #E140C wall switch timer.


Do you mean Intermatic E104C box-type timer? Intermatic does not make E140C

Manual says "refer to programming instructions on time switch door"
http://www.intermatic.com/~/media/files/intermatic/products/instructions/timers/et104c%20-%20english.ashx

Manual says timer has 8 events per 24-hour day ... 4 'on' events and 4 'off' events. Normal operations, selectors are set to AUTO and RUN.

Using sketchy info from manual about programming:
Set sliders to MANUAL & TIME/SET
Press EVENT for event 1 ... set hour and minute using HOUR & MIN buttons ... this will be 'on' time
Press EVENT for event 2 ... set hour and minute ... this will be 'off' time
Set all 8 events ... 4 'on' and 4 'off'
Move sliders to AUTO & RUN for timer operation

auto you mean timer function? that will take your picture after 3, or 5 or 10 seconds?

to use it go to the menu setting of your camera and search for self timer, auto timer or something similar.
then select a desired time (ie. 5 seconds) and click ok.
then click to take a photo. the timer will start and after 5 seconds the photo will be taken
