The auto mode isn't working on my zilla digital 24-7 power center, when on auto mode no lights come on?


Copy following link to identify timer:
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#zilla
Is this a new timer??? Or old timer that stopped working?
Replace battery.
Press reset button to clear all memory traces before programming.
Check programming for overlaps and mismatched day(s) of operation.
Test outlet for correct polarity and grounding using circuit analyzer.
Make sure light bulb is turned ON. Timers do not reach out and rotate on-off switch.
Make sure outlet has at least 80% rated voltage shown on load label. For example 115 volts x 80% = 92 volts

About your specific programming needs:
Zilla selects 12 o'clock as changeover time between am-pm.
So if you want 8:02 to 7:59 operation, then that is under the 12 hours, but it crosses the 12 o'clock am-pm changeover.
Workaround: Shorten your times to less than 12 hours just like you have done.
But set current time differently so 8-8 falls under either am or pm, but does not cross am-pm. The timer does not actually know what the current time is, so simply fudge by amount needed.

As luck would have it I'm 60, and learned how to program your 0141224 wall switch timer.
You can see instructions with big print and pictures on following page.
Press CTRL key on keyboard and use scroll wheel on mouse to make web print bigger.

Add a comment any time.

You have wired your timer correctly and the lights turn on when you push on-off button.
If lights do not turn on, we need to review the wiring.
Your timer looks like photo below.

I'm going to parrot back the manual with some extra words.
To start, press the reset button and clear any programming

Programing overview:
Each program has ON time ... and OFF time
So you set program1 ON and then set program1 OFF
When you set program1 ON, you choose the Day, hour and minute you want program1 to turn ON.
And then you set program1 OFF, and choose Day, hour and minute for program1 to turn OFF.
Your ON-OFF times for program1 should be on same days.
For example program1 ON for all-days-of-the-week, but program1 OFF is for TU Tuesday, then timer will not work.
IN this case, program1 OFF should also be set for all-days-of-the-week.
Let's start.

Setting the clock:
Press and hold CLOCK button
Keep holding CLOCK button and press DAY button until display shows current day (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)
Press Hour button until current hour with am pm displays
Press MIN button until current minute displays.
Release clock button and current day and time show on display
At no other part of instructions do you press and hold one button while pressing other button.

Setting programs:
Press PROG button until "1" and 'ON' show on display
This is program1 ON
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 ON.
You can choose: all-days-of-the-week and MO TU WE TH FR SA SU show on display
Choose individual days and MO or TU etc shows in display
Choose weekdays MO TU WED TH FR
Weekends SA SU show in display
Next step
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 ON
Press MIN to select minute for program1 ON

Now program1 ON is ready, next, you will set program1 OFF

Press PROG button until "1" and 'OFF' shows on display
This is program1 OFF
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 OFF.
( Remember, you want same days for ON and OFF)
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 OFF
Press MIN to select minute for program1 OFF

Now program1 ON and OFF are ready, next, you will set program2 ON by repeating same steps above.
You can set up to 7 programs.
If you don't want to set program2, or any more programs, that's fine.

To exit programming and save your program, press CLOCK.
Now current time shows in display.

Final step: set MODE
Press MODE button until AUTO shows in display. You want AUTO for programming to operate lights. That's it, timer is ready.
If you're going on vacation, press MODE button until RDM shows in display, and then timer turns lights on-off at random

Copy and save these instructions to your computer so you have them next year.

Just program it as noted previously and put the timer in Auto. Set the clock to 1 min BEFORE your earliest timer program is set to come on. When the clock hits the correct time, it will turn on. Then set the clock to the correct time and you're golden.

I have the Sentry - timer for my outside lights. One dial is for pm and one for am. The lights are not going on when I put the dial on 7:30 pm. I have to manually turn them on and then off in the morning,


Ginger,

It sounds like an older Intermatic timer
Does your timer look similar to this timer? EJ351
Here are the instructions for this timer:
Usually if the timer is still made, I can find a manual and piece together a solution... but I don't know this timer, and if it is malfunctioning ....

It may be time for a new timer > the EJ351 is inexpensive, simple to install (just 2 wires) and simple to program >>> one knob controls both AM-PM.
