Question about Intermatic & Indoor/Outdoor Rain Tight Timer

1 Answer

Timer won't turn off or on by itself

I don't know if the pins should be in or out to make the thing turn on and off. can't find the instruction manual that came with it. the timer is actually a AmerTac indoor/outdoor timer model #TM12DOLB. I figure any similar timer would be about the same to set up. It's not digital. The clock/time is set correctly and is working fine.

Pull the pin up wait and see if it comes on you will know then. Most do pull up but there are a few that have the pin that has to be shoved in. 90% however do have to be pulled up to set the timer for off and on.

Testimonial: "The problem was trying to decide if the pins up or down turned it on and off. I think I have it figured out now. UP (i think) makes it turn off & on."

Refrigerator and freezer not getting cold enough


Yes the defrost timer should come on by itself and if it does not just turn the timer again clockwise and replace timer because this will cause the refrigerator to not defrost. I don't have the amount of time off for yours but some timers are off for up to 30 minutes three times a day.When looking at the rear wall of freezer do you see frost build up? The ice maker will stop making ice most times above 5 degrees inside freezer. Let me know Thanks Sea Breeze
The defrost timer for your model is=> 68233-3 Defrost Timer

I have a noma 49550 and the timer let the turn on and the wheel spins as well but it doesnt shut off even with the pins and i dont know what the wheel at the top is for, is that the issue???? please help...


I don't have repair for defective timer.
The wheel at top is probably the issue. Move the wheel with your thumb and experiment with the timer.
As a general rule, the timer will not bite you.

Open following link for analog timer instructions:

My files show that 49550 is analog timer with trippers that install on timer dial.

Lights come on but don't stay on even though the tabs are set for it to stay on say from 4-12 it will go off at 7:30. Someone got thier hands on this before i did---could the tabs have been broken if...


GM40 is commercial-grade electronic time piece with FM1 analog timer dial.
I bought a used GM40 once and the electronics were bad, so if this is a used timer, it might not function as expected.

I don't think the tabs/pins are broken. FM1 timer module is heavy duty.
Turning the dial clockwise does not damage timer. That's how you set current time and test timer.
Rotating dial counterclockwise is not possible without breaking the timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-Grasslin-gm40.pdf

FM1 analog timer module can be replaced if timer stopped working.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#FM1

If certain pins/tabs are broken, you might be able to work around problem by offsetting current time by 6 hours or 12 hours. Or you can move wires from NO to NC terminals and see if the relays are causing a problem.

To set FM1 timer, the pins are pushed outward or inward.
For example to turn on Load for 1 hour, then 4 consecutive pins are moved.
To turn on Load for 3 hours, then 12 consecutive pins are moved.
To test if pins need to be inward or outward, set some pins and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise and watch when the Load turns on-off.

I have several Intermatic Model DT7.It very hard to set hours and minute. I press the buttons and nothing hapens and the just start to go up through the numbers and I can't stop it.


I'm not sure what timer you have.
Programmable timers are made so you press-and-hold the button, and then display goes up through the numbers as you describe.
I test timers, and have not seen the fault you describe. 4-6% of timers arrive defective.
However you have several timers that do the same thing.
If you press the button once, then the first number shows, press button again and next number shows.

If your timer is going up through the number with one push of the button then try resetting timer.
I cannot identify your timer to know what the reset steps are.

Also, many timers you push the + button to go up through the numbers, and push the - button to go down through the numbers > try both buttons since one may be made for individual selection and other for acceleration through all numbers.
If timer operates on 120V, perform circuit analyzer test on the circuit to eliminate electrical as source of problem.
If this is a hard-wire timer, carefully review of wiring.

If you find the specific source of problem, add a comment.

I need a manual for UTILITECH #0148373.. and i need it now! PLease help me..i need to know how to use this product. HELP PLZ!


Open following link to correctly identify product:
http://cgi.ebay.it/UTILITECH-2-OUTLET-TIMER-0148373-15-AMP-LOT-OF-4-/290468257053

Utilitec 0148373 timer is plug-in type timer.
Set on-off times by moving pins.
Pins are located on dial and stick up. They can be moved back and forth like stick-shift on car.
See example of pins at following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Pins-tabs

Instructions:
Turn ON lamp.
Light bulb is good.
Plug lamp into timer.
Plug timer into outlet.
Move some pins outward.
Then manually rotate dial clockwise to watch how lights turn on-off.
That will tell you if lights turn on or off when pins are set outward.

To set current time, rotate dial clockwise until current time lines up with arrowhead located on inner dial.
Dial turns as time passes.
Lever on top of timer is moved to 'Timer'

Timer always turning lights on randomly


Yes, the timer should not require you to reset the pins every 24 hours. Return to place of purchase and let them know it is defective and doesn't work according to the instructions, etc.

If you have no luck in getting a refund, contact the manufacturer directly and let them know you are dissatisfied with this product, but am willing to accept a replacement, etc.

Hope this helps and best regards!
