How do I find the manual override on the six outlet Smart Electrician Power Stake?


Product not fully identified... attach photograph of product
Product manuals often do not match product today... globalization has shortcomings.
On analog timed units, override can be slide switch, round knob... or many power stakes do not have override
On digital power stakes, override can be sequence of buttons or one button.
Following link shows many common power stakes timers to help identify product and add a followup question.

I have some nobo e4eu electric panel heaters with 7 day programmable timers,does anyone know where i can get instructions on how to replace and swap over for a new one?


There are not even photographs of the product online...
That tells me that nobo might be using generic timers made by various manufacturers.
And they might not use the same timer one year to the next... preferring to sell whatever they can buy with lowest price.

A lot of companies re-brand generic products and sell them under their brand name, and folks assume the company made the product.. and the company has manuals... but they don't manufacture anything... they just sell stuff.
First Alert, Timex, Kingshield, Stanley, ... are examples... I suggest not buying products from companies that do not post manuals

maybe you can find a manual by doing a google image search for timers, heater timers, or Nobo ... and seeing if you can find similar timer.

Nobo timer manual below is also sold under Sunlight and Timex brands.

Nobo Heater - Power not constant


You do know that these kinds of heaters "cycle".?? They turn on and off, as a control regulator (thermostat) tells them to. You should have an adjustment that will control how frequently it cycles on and off... You should also have some kind of switch that shuts the heater down if it gets tipped over. However, I tend to assume you know most of this.. If it was simply "cycling", though, I'd think that there would still be some light on full-time to show it really was plugged in and working... So, if I had to bet my money, I'd bet that there's some built in safety switch inside that heats up and kicks the whole thing off quite soon after you start it going. I'd guess that by unplugging it, it eventually resets itself so that you can try it all over again. It could be one of those cases where it might be easier and cheaper to junk it and buy a new one.

I have a General Electric timer on my water heater. For some reason it has stopped working. How do I override the timer. It is less than a month old?


1) GE timers don't have override switch, but if you raise all the timer segments, the circuit to water heater will be completed.

2) Open link below to identify timer and see wiring diagram, and wiring instructions.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GE-15207-timer.html

3) Override timer using the wires:
Take a photo of wiring so you can re-wire correctly on new timer.
There is 1 black and 1 white Line wire coming from the breaker.
And 1 black and 1 white Load wire going to water heater.

Connect black Line and Load wires together on same terminal.
Connect white Line and Load wires together on same terminal.
This will complete circuit to water heater and by-pass the timer.

4) Buy new timer at Home Depot.
Reconnect wires on new timer.
Return defective timer in new box.
Keep new timer clean, and swap out whenever needed and give yourself extended warranty.

5) This is the first report of GE timer going bad that I've seen on Fixya.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Timer wheel seems to slip. Won't hold time


You posted under Intermatic T104 timer.
If you have different timer, information below may not fit your timer.
Add a comment with correct timer brand and model number.

1) Click manual override on-off to see if Load turns ON, and that override snaps crisp and clean and is not sluggish or hard to move.
If override is not functioning well, then timer is bad. Buy new timer.
2) If dial is rotating, note current time, and watch if dial is keeping correct time over full day.
If dial is running slow, then buy T100 series 240Volt clock motor for T104 timer.
3) If dial is keeping good time, then tripper might be worn and need replacement

Link below shows Intermatic T100 series parts:

I have a Woods TM1710 outdoor timer and the instructions are not very clear. First, what is the manual overide switch. Second, what are all the on/off positions on the dial for. Third, which part of the...


Woods timers and manuals
Woods TM1710 shows at page bottom, and does not have online manual that I can find
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

TH1710 is a promotional timer for outdoor use.
TD series and TM series timers are evidently sold at a price point, and not made with same features as more expensive timers.

That being said, TM1710 has a dial that rotates as time passes.
Poor image quality is hard to make out, but dial looks like 12 hour.
If this is true, then time programs repeat each 12 hours.
Set timer and the lights turn on-off during am hours, and then cycle repeats for pm hours.
Kinda silly to make 12-hour outdoor repeat timer since you want outdoor lights ON during pm but not am. But cheap prices sway we shoppers who later discover a saw horse that is supposed to balance on 2 legs.

To set ON-OFF times, there are segments located around outer edge of dial.
Pull segments up or leave them pushed down to set ON-OFF.
Most timers are OFF during hours when segments are pulled up, and ON when segments down, but this timer may be opposite.

Manual override is button or switch that overrides timer functions and turns light ON full time.
Again poor image quality makes it impossible to see manual override, but it looks like manual override is white button to lower right of dial.
If that button is manual override, then it appears to rotate.
Usually you set override one direction to override, and other direction for timer to operate

Help! I can't get the water heater to go on! I KEEP TRYING to set the dial, but it's not working


If I understand correctly, you have the WH40 water heater timer.

If timer dial will not rotate, then use manual override to turn on circuit to water heater.
If manual override will not move back and forth, the tripper pin might be wedged against the lever.
Lift and rotate dial out of way.
If manual override does not click back-and-forth, then timer is probably bad.
If manual override clicks, but water heater does not turn on, then check electricity.

If you need more help, post a comment and I will respond
