Problem programming timer settings. Is it supposed to be random or continuous?


1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006



2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html



3) 50001 timer is not random vacation timer like the 50003.
50000 series timers by Woods have 1 year limited warranty, and they are a new design released this year. However the analog timer design has been around for many years.


4) If timer is acting randomly, then
a) timer is defective,
b) the override switch is not fully positioned at 'timer on,'
c) segments are not lifted fully in position,


5) ... other more remote causes: outlet might not test 80% rated voltage?, outlet might have reversed polarity?


5) Try timer on different outlet with different light.


6) As the timer dial rotates, the segments push small lever, and the lever moves switch that turns lights on-off. I suppose if this lever was broken or switch was broken, then timer would act more randomly.

Need a good vacation timer. Any suggestions?


Copy following link to see analog vacation timers that turn lights on at random times.
Set current time slightly different so lights inside house can turn on-off at slightly different schedules.
Rotate dial to set current time, plug timer into outlet, make sure bulb is good, turn light ON, and plug light into timer.

Multi-function digital timers, such as Woods 59377, and lifetime-warranty Intermatic DT620 also have vacation feature, and timers have 2 outlets, but programming is more complicated than using analog timer.

I'm using the woods 59200 mechanical timer to automatically open and close a chicken coop door. I can't for the life of me figure out how to set it. Help!


Woods 59202 is 7-day analog VACATION timer and cannot be set.
Vacation timers are preset to turn on-and-off at random times so it looks like somebody is home when you are away.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#59202

You might want the 59201 analog timer which can be set for on-off times over 24-hour period. Minimum on-off is 15 minutes.
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59201-Appliance-Grounded-3-Prong/dp/B001Q9EFTQ

If you need a 7-day timer, buy a programmable instead of analog. Wooods 59377 or Intermatic DT630 heavy duty
http://www.amazon.com/Woods-59377-Digital-Appliance-Settings/dp/B000IKQRTU

If you have analog plug-in timer, open following link to see how to set timers:

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.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

Face of the timer doesn't indicate which numbers are a.m. and which are p.m., so how am I supposed to set the current time? There's an "8-4-12" that's not shaded and then an "8-4-12"...


You posted under Woods vacation timer:
See large image

This is a 7-day timer.
Days are printed on the dial.
Each day has night time with dark background and daytime in light background

If you want to set time for Monday at 12 noon, rotate dial clockwise until Monday 12 (in light background) line up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
After that, move switch to TIMER

Timer turns lights ON-and-OFF at random times throughout week

How to program residential timer mod no 49750/tm261a


49750 sounds like a Woods timer number, but I can't identify for sure
Woods makes timers for many other brands that are sold under different numbers

Amazon shows First Alert tm261 random vacation timer
http://www.amazon.com/First-Alert-Tm261-7-Day-Vacation/dp/B000P6W4OE
If this is not your timer, then add a comment.

First Alert tm261 random vacation timer is similar to GE 15151 shown on following page.
GE 15151 has a manual
First Alert appears just below GE 15151
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#vacation

A vacation timer cannot be programmed.
Look closely at outer edge of dial and see that dial has small plastic protrusions that stick out.
These protrusions are trippers that cause timer to turn lights on-off at random times so home looks occupied when on vacation.
