Timex Timer model no 12/874

I bought this last year and lost the instructions. I remembered that I needed to plug it in to charge. I did that for about 32 hours. Still not working. LED is blank, no matter what buttons I push. Can you help?

Sorry, there really isn't a product catagory that fits this.

Take the remote unit apart and find the NiCd battery pack. It may need changing. If it won't charge then one or more cells are not accepting a charge and the others won't charge as well. There are sites on the web that sell replacements for a number of units.

How to set time on Yardworks two zone water timer

Copy following link to access manuals for each brand of water timer on market 2013:
Yardworks does not have website, manuals or warranty claim procedure.
Instead, yardworks repackages other brands of timer, generally water timers, such as orbit or melnor and raindrip. And sometimes repackages other brands of outdoor timers.
Recommend folks stay away from timer-repackagers such as Yardworks, Timex, First Alert, and buy brand names that have clear customer resources.

How do I charge timex digital timer 12/874

Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:

2) Usually you plug timer into outlet for 1/2 hour to charge internal non-replaceable battery. Other timers have replaceable battery. Always reset timer before programming. If timer display does not show with charged, or new, battery, then try timer on different outlet, and/or replace timer.
3) If timer does not show on link above, add comment and include photo or clear description of timer.

When i plug it in there is no display is it broken ?

Reset timer using reset button, and see if functionality begins.
Plug timers into different outlets.
Test outlets for correct polarity and that they deliver at least 80% rated value, 115 volts x 80% = 92 volts.

Most timers have 1 year limited warranty through manufacturer.
Timex timers are not made by or display on Timex website.
Unknown where warranty is honored.
Suggest GE, Woods, Intermatic timers since these have specific web links for warranty coverage, but you have to send timer in.
This is why I suggest buying timers at local box store, then if problem occurs, buy another timer and return defect in new package, thus giving convenient extended warranty coverage.

I can not reset my Timex timer . The timer stopped working after a month and the instructions to not help in programing these timers

The instructions will help quite a lot right now:

1) Typical Timex manual says to re-set timer, press MODE and PROG buttons together.
Compare this information with your instructions.

2) Look on instruction sheet for timer model number, and then add a comment with your model number so I can identify timer manual and possibly post answer that fits your product.

3) Look on instruction sheet for company information.
Timex timers come with standard 1 year limited warranty:
Following phone might work: 1-800-919-3101

4) Scan your instruction sheet into jpg format and then add a comment with link to that jpg, then I can give you best answer for that specific timer.

5) Buy another timer, and return broken timer in new package.

6) Use circuit analyzer to test outlet for line noise and ground fault that affect timer electronics.

7) Buy another brand of timer altogether:

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Lost our instructions for TE111 - can you email them?

Timex TE111 must be 24 hour indoor lamp timer.
Instructions say plug in and wait for 30 minutes.
This indicates that timer has rechargeable battery.
If battery won't charge, then timer is no good

Two internet links say Timex TE111 is TX12694TA
Here is link pdf manual
Here is another link

Another link to fixya from 2 years ago gives written instructions
