Question about Malibu Intermatic Inc. ML300RTW 300-Watt Power Pack with Timer and Ground S
I have placed red and black pins in proper position. Followed directions exactly. The dial inside is turning but is not tripping the lights on or off? Is the inside dial supposed to rotate counterclockwise when running? When I turn on manually works no problem?
Look closer at those pins as the motor turns those pins turn a togle switch on and off make sure those pins are able to togle that switch you will see that switch under the that timer disk

This type of timer has removeable pins in two colors. The difference in color is so you can set two different start and stop times and tell which is which. Use both white pins for the first time period and the other color for the second time period.
You will notice that the pins have a short leg and a long leg. The long leg is the one that trips the switch on and off. The pin that has the long leg positioned to the outside of the dial will turn the switch on. To turn the switch off, you need the other pin to be turned so the long leg is toward the inside of the dial. Repeat for the other set of pins.
You must also set the current time of day and that is done by turning the whole dial so that the small arrow is pointing to the correct time of day, either AM or PM. Now just plug the unit into the wall and plug in the lamp or whatever into the unit. It will come on and off at the times set by the pins.
You will also notice that there is a manual on/off switch on the timer as well. This is so you can turn the lamp on or off manually. If you have turned the lamp on manually and the timer gets to the time when it would normally come on, nothing will happen because it is already on, but if it gets to the time when it is set to turn off, it will automatically turn off even though you turned it on manually; and vice-versa.
I wrote these directions because I couldn't find directions anywhere online for this type of timer with the removeable pins. I hope this is clear for you. It is a nice timer once you figure it out. :D
